Modern Mother Goose-On The Loose [G] Halloween Night

The moon was full, and the kids were out-

They had mapped out their Halloween map.

.

They went to see Mrs. Smith, who made the

popcorn ball-

She made plenty, she made enough for all.

.

Then off to Mr. Chester’s, who gave candy

corn-

And in addition, he blew real loud his

homemade boat horn.

.

Mrs. Garcia always had chocolate to boot-

When we left her house, we had scored our loot.

.

Mrs. Johnson had a variety of candy-

To trick or treat, at her house was real handy.

.

The Halloween bags were getting full and a bit heavy-

Thank goodness, Mama was following along in that

old time Chevy.

.

To unload a bit, in the car-

Then once again, to travel far.

.

From this block, to that block, the kids went

door to door-

It was Halloween night, and every house turned

into a candy store.

.

The moon was full, and the kids were out-

They had mapped out their Halloween map.

Back In The Day On Halloween Night (2014)

I remember the days when we’d go trick or treating. It was a time to dress up and go house to house, to get some candy, to fill up our bags.

We usually just put on stuff from around the house, and added a bit of Mama’s makeup. Or if we were lucky enough, someone in the family

would make us a costume.

.

I don’t remember ever speaking of the devil, per say. It was just a fun filled night. As soon as it got dark, we’d head off for our adventure.

A lot of the neighborhood would participate, and some houses would give us loads of candy, while others would give us a fright.

I can remember a gorilla coming from behind the bushes. Mr. Smith, down the street, had to have some fun too.

The most amazing thing back then was the popcorn balls that we ate. Quite a few people would make those, so we weren’t exactly sure

which house they’d come from.

.

Later on we evolved to the parents inspecting the candy, and then we could go to the local hospital, to have the candy x-rayed.

As an adult, I never could understand how that worked, but back in the day, that is just how it was. At the same time, we were always

told not to take candy, from a stranger, but on Halloween night, that thought went out the window.

Scary isn’t it? No costume required.

 

“Halloween was filled with fun and fright-

Evolving into the fall festival, at a particular site”.

Three Ways That Halloween Is Different Than It Used To Be (2008)

 

1. We ate popcorn balls that we picked up at a strangers house.

2. The use of an x-ray machine was to check for a broken bone.

3. We actually called the holiday, HALLOWEEN.

======================================================

Happy Halloween 2008-

To trick or treat, we can hardly wait.
