As Halloween draws closer I've been reminiscing about Halloweens past while I look forward to seeing my niece and nephew head out to go trick-or-treating. Here in Vancouver, it seems to rain pretty much every year. It's perfect, really. The wind lashing the trees, leaves blowing here and there. It's dark early enough that the house lights glow invitingly. Lots of people go all out decorating with pumpkins, skeletons, and gravestones and the streets are busy with cute little monsters and fairy princesses. "Trick or treat! Trick or treat!"
Growing up in Edmonton and then Calgary it was either pretty chilly out or downright freezing, if not snowing. We didn't care--we had our pillow case candy bags gripped firmly in our little freezing hands--and we stumble ran from house to house--crazy happy and excited.
This year I'm going to give my niece and nephew some fleece socks to wear either as part of their costume or underneath. I think the Zigzag socks would look great on a little witch or sorcerer, and with Limeade socks they would definitely be easy to see in the dark!
And then I'll watch them run out the door, watchful parents shepherding them along the wet sidewalks while I stay behind to hand out candy to the neighbour kids. So fun!
Happy Halloween all.
Product notes: Mid-weight 100% polyester fleece socks sewn with patented flat-lock seams. Great for hiking, biking, skiing, snowshoeing, running, and trick-or-treating. Made in Canada.
