I remember Halloween was magical when we were kids (when candy was a lot scarcer than it is now!) It was heaven if the night was warm but even if you had to put your costume under or over your winter coat, you weren't going to miss out. I remember one year it was raining, I was getting tired, and I was dragging my paper bag of candy along the ground and it...broke. What a tragedy!
I also remember staying up half the night to finish a costume for one of my girls. And trudging along behind them with an umbrella in bad weather. I would do it again in a heartbeat.
I also remember the year my husband and I were invited to a party. I dressed up as Jack Sparrow and he was Austin Powers. Believe it or not, our host and hostess did not recognize us! Another year we were Indiana Jones and Cruella de Ville.
