Halloween

We set up a pair of take-one boxes on a table on the building’s front lawn, one with candy and the other with party favors. Then we took turns taking the kid around the neighborhood. Last ride of the giant Minecraft spider jockey costume before he outgrows it.

I was amazed at how many families were out. More than most years. We ran out of both candy and toys.

I guess it’s a reaction to everyone staying home last year.

Kid's homemade #Halloween costume: a #Minecraft spider jockey. His mom did the construction, I helped a bit with the painting, and he's still able to fit in the harness, so he's planning to take it out again this year. Building the thing was a lot of work, but he's getting a lot of use out it.

There’s a house in my neighborhood with decorations that include a string of bright orange witches’ hats hanging from the eaves.

But since I learned from an episode of that “witches’ hat” is Australian slang for traffic cones, the color seems even more appropriate!

We also managed to get one more Halloween out of the giant Minecraft spider jockey until the shoulder straps started digging in.

Cool: Michael’s is selling plastic teal pumpkins for people who plan on offering non-food treats for allergic trick or treaters as part of the #tealpumpkinproject. You can still paint a pumpkin teal, of course, but this simplifies the setup. (Are we really that close to #halloween already?)

Christmas strikes deeper into Halloween’s territory…

Christmas strikes deeper into Halloween’s territory, continuing an aggressive campaign that began decades ago in response to a 1993 incursion from Halloween Town. In recent years, Halloween has shored up its position by moving into previously unclaimed parts of the calendar in early October and September.
