As a child I remember always watching Hocus Pocus, and my dad would always carve the pumpkin, and we would just take the "guts" out...Now that my family is expanding and we are all getting older there is not as many as the "traditions" anymore. Still when I see Hocus Pocus it takes me back. It takes me back to candy corns, my mom making her own children's costumes, trick-or-treating, and gathering around with the neighborhood kids. Even in high school & college, when my dad wasn't carving the pumpkins it would be my boyfriend was carving, and I still would be taking out the "guts"... But this year is was different. I had no one to carve it for me.. I had to figure this one out on my own. It wasn't a TOTAL disaster...Just a small one. I wanted to carve Mickey's face because well..I'm a Disney freak! It could of come out better...but also came out much worse! I have pictures to prove it! I love Halloween! I love it because for one day you can be ANYTHING you want to be. Let your imagination go wild! I HATE haunted houses that you have to pay for..BUT if it is a "paranormal" haunted house i'm totally game! Do I believe in the paranormal world? I don't NOT believe in it. I have seen a few things that maybe questionable... But maybe it's all just in our minds. Half of what we see and hear is just in our minds...I'm pretty much getting off track here..I'm not sure if this post is about Halloween in general or about my pumpkin..or maybe it was suppose to be about how much things change from a childhood to adult hood? Who knows. But what I do know is that when I look back to Halloween as a child, I will always remember standing on the back deck, with my dad cleaning out the "guts" while he does the rest. What is something you remember about your childhood Halloween?
