Wow! This morning a black cat ran right across the street in front of my car as I was driving back into my neighborhood! Is that real Halloween or what?! I know it is bad luck to have a black cat cross your path, so that freaked me out a little bit! Hopefully today will be nothing but good luck because I love Halloween (it would help if we had some fall leaves here in Houston!) and I get to see my boys. One was nearly born a Halloween goblin because he arrived just 45 minutes before Halloween! But that was twenty years ago! More about his birthday card later.
I usually have a lot of trick-or-treaters at my house, but it is often about 80 degrees, at least when the kids start out after dinner, sweating in their costumes. When I was growing up in St. Louis it was often a problem on Halloween with the weather being very cold, and we had to wear a winter coat…..either over our costume, which meant no one could see the costume, or under the costume, which of course looked ridiculous! "Back in the olden days" we always had to have a joke ready to tell people before they would give us candy. I don't think they do that anymore.
Here are some Halloween cards I've made (okay, mostly copied from somebody else!) to help celebrate the day!
