The little goblins were howling at my house on Sunday. It seemed that there were a record number of trick-or-treaters that were filling up their candy sacks this "All Hallows Eve."
Ballerinas, princesses, bumble bees, Draculas, and wolf men came knocking at my door. There was a host of unworldly specters that were also there to ward off the evil spirits — all in good fun and for the love of candy, of course.
My three grandkids (Aidan, Lucan and Morgan Neely) who are living in England, were feel candy-deprived because the holiday is not celebrated there in their wee hamlet outside of London.
Seems to me to be a bit of a puzzlement because the holiday came down to us here in the colonies because it originally was a feast celebrated by the Celts and called Samhain. Guess the young Neely trio will just have to wait until they return to the U.S. to do their trick-or-treating.
