A 1950's Happy Halloween
Back in the day, when I was growing up, costumes were always homemade. Moms had to be very creative to come up with a character every year based on what was available in the closet or the attic.

and scurry on their way.

Finally done bags are full
now hurry off to home
as the next day they often have school.
And Mom puts what's left on top of the refrigerator.

although in their costumes they are so dear.
and this time next year we'll do it all again!

"Trick or treat give me something good to eat"
On to the next house
Scary decorations and eerie sounds
Eat some candy and save some for later
All through the night they toss and turn
So Happy Halloween to all my friends
