Thank you so very much my friends for making Bacon’s Show and Tell a great place to be every month. This month for Bacon’s Show and Tell we are going to highlight Halloween. What did you do for Halloween as a child? Did you trick or treat door to door, go to a Halloween festival or did you stay at home? This month let’s share what we did and show pictures – costumes, movies, whatever your favorite Halloween captured.
BOO! Mom never celebrated Halloween per say when she was growing up. She says that she went out one time during her childhood – it was cold and wet and she hated. And what did she dress up as that one time? You won’t believe it – a CLOWN! Can you believe that?
After that ill fated time trick or treating door to door, her parents got smart. Why go door to door and worry about your child when you can keep them home to have fun. So from then on, mom and siblings told their parents what kind of candy they wanted and their parents bought it for them so they could have it on Halloween. As their dad passed out candy to the regular trick or treaters, mom and her siblings had pizza, ate candy and watched scary movies on television. Those are some of her best memories – watching the likes of Vincent Price, Lon Chaney, Boris Karloff and Bela Lugosi just to name a few. I even found this picture of mom during her teenage years.
