When I was growing up, it was fun dressing up in costumes and going "trick-or-treating" door to door in my neighborhood on Halloween. Can you remember how fun it was doing that?
Unfortunately, a scare started one of those years because somewhere candy was handed out that was tampered with. After that time, we still dressed up and went out on Halloween. We still had fun. However, we limited our visits to people we knew or we participated in Halloween parties.
The joy of going out to "trick-or-treat" is still an ongoing tradition today. Many children stop by my house on the evening of Halloween to get their treats. You may have several happy, excited children visit you on that night as well. The smiles on their faces, as they receive your Halloween gift, can get you excited as well.
Do you consider the Halloween treats you hand out as gifts? You may not consider Halloween as a gift giving occasion. However, you might change your mind when you visit http://www.BooksForTreats.org for a new twist on Halloween giving.
You can be helping children, taking away many of the worries parents have on that evening, while still providing long-lasting fun for the kids. The only danger is that you may have more children visiting your house next year when the children and their parents talk about how you celebrated Halloween.
