This is Fun Monday "Scary Edition" and Sayre is the hostess. Her assignment is, tell us about your scariest Halloween as a kid (pictures if you have them) what costume are you wearing this year(if any) pictures of a carved pumpkin or how you decorated your house for Halloween.
As a kid, (that was a long time ago) we lived in Baltimore city, there were tons of houses to go trick or treating to. We used to start two or three days before Halloween and if the people did not give us treats, we would soap up their windows.(we were bad) The Friday before Halloween was called "moving night" or "mischief night" kids would go out and move stuff that neighbors had sitting on porches or in their yards. They would move these objects to near by places, just for fun. Sometimes they would throw eggs at your house or car, wrap toilet paper around tree's or even put your cat down the mail boxes, especially if it was a black cat. My Mom kept a close eye on us kids (5 of us) to be sure we didn't participate in these activities. Soaping windows was the worst we did. Our costumes were always home made, stores did not sell costumes like they do today. My grandmother made most of them, (clown, cowgirl, gypsy, powder puff girl) as we got older, we mostly went as Bums or Hobo's, it was easy to throw together. I don't remember being really scared at Halloween. There really wasn't that many scary costumes around. This was a time when life was very simple and we didn't have a lot of TV shows to watch. Halloween sparks happy memories for me. Always lots of candy, we took big paper grocery bags and had them filled up in no time at all. Multiply this times 5 and you have a bunch of goodies!
