For the kids

November 15, 2012
Morning Journal News


I thought Halloween was about kids dressing up. We just had our trick-or-treat night last night in East Palestine. My husband and I gave out candy and were appalled at what we saw. We had a small group of 3 or 4 adults "somewhat" dressed up coming onto our porch for candy. There were several "teens" as well as smaller kids that weren't dressed up at all.

There was a man that had to be in his 50's with letters tattooed on his fingers trick-or-treating at my house. People had their 1 and 2 year old children dressed up in their arms and picking out the candy for them. Seriously people? Who's really eating the candy. And this isn't really a question. My husband and I enjoyed seeing the kids in their cute, scary, and sometimes creative costumes. We spent $80 on candy, but not for adults who were looking for a hand-out. We would think they have a job and should just go buy their own candy. I would be ashamed as an adult to walk onto someone's porch with my candy bag open. We thought trick-or-treating was about kids. Maybe we were mistaken.
