Halloween past: Some time in the 1980s
My Dad answers a ring at the door, and outside are some trick or treaters dressed in spooky costumes
Dad: Hello, what can I do for you?
Them: Trick or Treat!
Them: Trick or treat!
Them: You're supposed to give us a treat, you know, something good to eat.
Dad: Oh, okay then, hang on.
Dad went the kitchen and made them each a honey sandwich.
That is a true story.
Halloween, last night:
Sylvie: MUM THERE'S HALLOWEEN PEOPLE AT THE DOOR
Sylvie: WHAT ARE YOU DOING? AREN'T THEY SUPPOSED TO GIVE US THE LOLLIES?
Me: No, we give them lollies.
Sylvie: (Tears of disappointment about how unfair life can be.)
Halloween in the future:
I want to ditch NZ next Halloween and head to Canada because I was there on Halloween in 2006 and it was awesome. Look at these great pumpkin installations in Quebec City.
And this house, which I thought was spooky any day, let alone on Halloween.
