Wishing Everyone A Spooktacular Halloween!

The Halloweens of 19-something

Halloween was exciting and fun in the days of old

Several ghost stories we all sat in circles and told

Dressed as our favorite ghoul we covered the streets for trick-or-treat

Until way past Thanksgiving we’d feast on something good to eat

In front of houses with porch lights and jack-o-lanturns a-glow

Adults sat on their porch swings and chairs holding a huge candy bowl

Halloween in the old days was an exciting night

With Halloween parties and haunted houses set up to excite

Holiday Halloween

No worries of home invasions, robberies, shootings, or guns

But only of bigger punks waiting to swipe our candy and gum

The Halloweens of old were full of fun and excitement

Not like those of today with the threat of crime and incitement

Halloween was an exciting time full of wonder and magic

Not like today with threats of high crime rates and sex-traffic

The streets were a-buzz,Β swarming with little ghosts and ghouls

No worries we had of the threat of gangsters and fools

Back then we trick-or-treated without a care

How I wish I could time-travel back there

  1. πŸŽƒπŸŽƒπŸŽƒ HAPPY HALLOWEEN to you too Cherie. πŸ‘» Yep, I remember those days and we didn’t need our parents to go with us either! Our neighborhood looked out for everyone and we felt safe without even thinking about it. And the treats…OMG! 🍫🍬🍭

  2. I am so with you on this! I lived in a little town 3500 people, and the whole town was ours! We didn’t have to have adults with us, because we were safe to roam everywhere. Sigh! I miss that time, and tried to make it fun and exciting for our kids. Happy Halloween!
