Kindergarten certainly has changed since I was a little girl - and so has Halloween!  Back in the fifties there were no costume shops or Halloween stores. When we got home from school on October 31st we put on our imagination caps and came up with a costume. Yes, there were lots of ghosts in sheets and tramps (which most of you don't even know about) and scarecrows and cowboys and cowgirls and gypsies. We also dressed up in our parents' clothes. Did we have fancy pumpkins or bags? NO! We used brown grocery sacks or pillowcases. And, we never had to worry about somebody tampering with apples, popcorn balls, or homemade cookies. Can you imagine the germs in bobbing for apples? How did we ever live? A few houses had pumpkins, but that was the extent of the decorations.

So what did we have in common on Halloween with your children today? We had FUN!!! We had sweets!  We were excited - and maybe a little scared! It was a memory that still makes me smile.

Be well, happy, and share their JOY today!

P.S. Don't forget to remind the children to save their candy wrappers and bring them to school for some yummy fun!
