The Library of Congress described Thriller as the most famous music video of all time, and it has been named the greatest video by various publications and readers' polls. In 2009, it became the first music video inducted into the United States National Film Registry by the Library of Congress as "culturally, historically or aesthetically significant".

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.

We knew everyone in the neighbor and they knew us. We went door to door with no fear of being harmed in any way. The most fun was in having your friends parents trying to guess who you were. The candy was great, but fooling the parents was even greater.

Happy Halloween

"Trick or treat give me something good to eat"
all the children say
as they get their bags filled with candy
and scurry on their way.

On to the next house
fast as they can go
looking for porch lights
and pumpkins all aglow.
Some are scary some are cute
all shapes and sizes wanting the loot.

Scary decorations and eerie sounds
give them chills and leave 'em spellbound.
Finally done bags are full
now hurry off to home
as the next day they often have school.

Eat some candy and save some for later
And Mom puts what's left on top of the refrigerator.
Kiss them goodnight and tuck them in bed
and soon visions of all their candies dance in their head.

All through the night they toss and turn
ate to much candy when will they ever learn.
Glad Halloween comes only once a year
although in their costumes they are so dear.

So Happy Halloween to all my friends
and this time next year we'll do it all again!
