Where Has Thise Year Gone?

We don't ever get any trick or treater around here. Maybe people are afraid of our dogs or maybe because it's kind of dark in our yard but we haven't had any kids come around in years.
A guy at work told me he lives in a community where kids line up to come to his house. They have to buy pounds of candy each year. We usually buy a few bags and then eat it ourselves over the course of a few weeks after Halloween.
People will be taking down their Halloween decorations this weekend and putting up Christmas decorations. I went in Wal-Mart yesterday and the garden center is now stacked full of Christmas tree lights, decorations, and other Christmas stuff. I am amazed at how quickly this year has flown by.

  1. In the 17 years we've lived here we've never had anyone come trick-or-treating. The first year we were well stocked with candy, so wound up eating it all ourselves.

    The stores here in Scottsdale started putting up Christmas merchandise the first of October. I long for the good old days when Christmas was a celebration of the birth of Christ.
