Halloween has never been a big deal with me in the past, it's not something that has come into my radar at all. It was only last year that a few kids came knocking on my door dressed in their spooky and scary costumes. I was totally unprepared and had limited things to give them.
I suppose learning about it at school was the reason, and the only one I can think of, that saw the rise in interest. Our local woolies has a vast array of merchandise this year, the first time I have seen it featured before so heavily. The cheap shop has gone nuts with it too, obviously cottoning on to the increase in participants. I admired the cool stuff they had for sale, and bought some witches fingers, draculas teeth, chocolate coins and cheap lollipops, to put in these little baskets I printed off and made.
I joined in on the list of 'friendly' houses that a lady compiled in our town, which I thought was an awesome idea, and waited for the kids. They came, not as many as I expected but, I gave away about 16 of these little baskets. I loved seeing the kids in their costumes, and loved that some of the parents dressed up too. I really enjoyed participating and it's all about the kids.

I made these biscuits too, I saw them on Kidspot and thought they were the coolest thing ever!
My mum (who I love to bits) posted this on facey, and I replied.
