I can’t believe another Halloween is upon us. Where does the time go? It seems like only yesterday my kids were really little and I would take them around the neighbourhood to
|My younger daughter's first Halloween. She was three days shy of four months old.|
|Dressing up with my girls on Halloween was always so much fun.|
Anyway, we haven’t celebrated Halloween for the past two years. My daughter complains about that, but when I ask her to help with candy duty at the door, she refuses because she’s ‘got plans with friends’. So I’m left holding the bag. Or the door. Or the treats. Whatever you want to call it. Maybe next year, I’ll get back into the spirit. Or the year after. Or when I (hopefully) have grandchildren. We’ll see.
Well, whether you celebrate or not, here’s a fun tune to kick start this ghoulish day. This well-known novelty song by Bobby "Boris" Pickett was released on August 25, 1962, and reached number one on the Billboard Hot 100 Chart on October 20 of that year; just in time for Halloween. It's been a recurring holiday favourite ever since.
Happy Halloween, everyone!
