Wow! We have over 300 trick or treaters at our house this evening. Most were under 12 years of age and the costumes of the kids (as well as many of the parents) were fantastic. There were some teenagers and they were all so well mannered and polite and bursting with exhuberance. It was great to see them having fun and laughing and giggling.
Sadly, there were several groups of young girls around 8 or 9 years old, who were quite cheeky and disrespectful. One girl grabbed the candy bowl and told me she liked to choose her own and then passed it to her 5 or 6 friends. Another group who looked around 9 years old told me they liked two chocolate bars. I told them I was only giving out one each and they repeated that they would rather have two... Oh my! Needless to mention, their parents were not accompanying them...which is strange in my neighbourhood. Most children are well escorted by parents here...right up to about 12 years old.
On the other hand, I had some of the sweetest toddlers. One tried to give me a chocolate bar. She tried about 5 different times. Another came up to the door, rang the doorbell and told me her age! Several 18 month to two years old kiddies, tried to come into the house....the parents were so embarrassed. I was laughing and leading them back out and they wanted to kiss me goodbye!
Well...back to Rudolph Days. We had 61 entries... that made me so happy! I enjoyed viewing each and every card or Christmas project, and leaving you comments and praise. .
