Halloweens Past

Halloween has always been a magical time for many. With pumpkins carved, treats gathered and the mystery the evening holds, it’s a favorite time of year for children and adults alike. When I was a little girl my favorite Halloween costume wasn’t a vampire, zombie or even a Goodwill Store hippie but, it was a something that my mother created for me.

I do, however, wish this memory was captured on film. Imagine, if you can, a tall skinny red haired girl about 10 or 11, dressed in a bright yellow sweat shirt and matching sweat pants with hundreds of black and orange spider rings safety pinned all over. I had a cloth mask, that doesn’t hold a very strong memory but, those spider rings and that bright yellow sweat suit – I can still envision it today, even though it was over 20 years ago.¬† I wish there was a photo…..
