Happy Halloween SparkBuds!
Monday, October 31, 2011
Halloween brings back great memories for me as a kid. Carmel apples, popcorn balls, home made fudge, rice crispy treats all filled my jack o lantern as I walked the streets with my dad in tow. These were made with loving hands by local women who competed with each other in a friendly "game" to see who could make the best tasting treats and lure the most witches, ghouls and gobblins to their doors.
Unfortunately the children of today will have memories of Hershey kisses, snickers bars and bags of M&Ms thanks to the deviates of our society who prey on the helpless to make up for their own tiny brains and other parts.
I'll be spending Halloween in the rural town of my youth this year, but will still fatten the wallets of candy companies and the middles of local children by giving out "appropriate" treats.
At least no one in town will have to x-ray their plunder and a few may even get the random piece of fudge from some kindly lady who remembers the "good old days". If I find out who, I may put on a mask and hit the street myself!! :)
Till Next Time...
PS If you reply, please let me know your favorite Halloween treats of your youth.
