I was trying to think of something
to post on this the third day of the
Halloween Blog Party. As you all
know I am not the best of story -
tellers but here goes. As a young
girl growing up, and believe me
that was a long long time ago, we
would have a Halloween carnival
held at our elementary school on
Halloween night. We would all
dress up in our costumes and head
to the carnival. There was a costume
parade and a prize given for the best
girl and boy costume, usual script
to play the games or purchase food.
I do not remember ever winning but
that was ok I still had a good time. If
you are wondering what years that
all occurred it was in the late 1940's.
Times back then were so much simpler
and a child could treat-or treat around
their neighbor or attend a carnival without
any fear.

What a nice memory. I wish there were photos of you in your costumes!

Thanks Deann. I wish I had photos also but my parents did not take any.

Halloween was great when I was growing up too. It's nice to have all of those wonderful memories. I feel sad that the world has changed so much. We have switched to inside family parties for the most part but they can be fun too. I hope you have a lovely weekend!
