Halloween Trick? Or Treat?

November 4, 2021

A Treat

As you know, last weekend was Halloween. Every year my daughter and her growing family come to visit us to celebrate Halloween. We bake pumpkin cookies. We read Halloween books. We have a Halloween Scavenger Hunt. We dress up and go trick-or-treating. And we finish the day off with a dinner of mummy hot dogs and mac and cheese. It’s a treat for everyone!

A Trick

This year was a bit different. It began the Tuesday evening before Halloween when a nor’easter hit New England. We had winds and rain where we live, but the nor’easter slammed the South Shore of Massachusetts where my daughter and family live. Trees fell, electrical lines were down, and nearly half a million people lost power. School was called off and, being thoughtful parents, we invited my daughter and family to come to our house and stay warm until their power returned. For the next five nights, we had six extra people in our house. Oh my, what a trick the storm and electrical company played on all of us!

We endured. Our family made the best of the circumstances. Take a look!

Joan Jett, Madonna, Britney Spears, The Blues Brothers, and Elvis entertained us!

And after a few wild and crazy days, there were always books to read before bedtime.

It was a Halloween worth remembering! I hope yours was, too!
