Halloween History

Many feel strongly about Halloween one way or another.  It's meaning and reason for being has changed throughout history.   Halloween has also changed for me.

When I was a little girl, I couldn't wait for Halloween.  Wearing a costume and getting tons of candy.  I didn't appreciate getting apples or popcorn balls for all my hard work.

As a mom, I enjoyed decorating the house... and the kids.  The candy part was not as fun.  Now there were Mommy Rules:  don't eat candy until we go through the bags, only 2 or 3 pieces a day, brush floss rinse, blah, blah, blah.

I haven't decorated in a while (maybe next year).  No costumes.  No little football players or clowns running around, excited about candy and wrestling over a piece that hit the floor.

I found this short video (History.com) on the History of Halloween.  You may find it interesting too.

Whatever your feelings about Halloween, be safe and be happy.
