Halloween was always a big deal for my son and I. Honestly, we got a bigger kick out of decorating the house with ghouls and goblins, placing buckets of dry ice on the lawn, and dressing up in spooky costumes to hand out the candy to the trick-or-treaters.
However, my most memorable Halloween was the last time we went trick-or-treating together. I suppose we were pushing the ‘age’ trick-or-treater boundaries, but we didn’t care. Finally as the night was coming to an end, we went up to a house and when the door opened up we shouted “trick-or-treat”, and the man handing out the candy looked at us and said “What do you guys want? Candy or a beer?”
