Halloween for me may hold a different meaning than most others. My memories are a pot of soup on the stove a warm cozy feeling in the air, no fright or monsters, but a charged atmosphere of excitement with family and friends. Making popcorn balls with my mom and visiting neighbors who were excited to see you and knew your name. That real sense of neighborhood. Today it has become something different, people go to the malls and trunk & treats, which is great, but makes me long for the days of porch lights on and neighbors smiling and calling you by name. I hope October 31st finds you making memories with friends, family, with a cozy warm feeling of fun and safety, for you and yours. Happy Happy Day!
