Tim Dunlop has been enjoying his first Halloween season, as has his six-year-old son Noah, who's quite excited about trick-or-treating. Dunlop and his family live in the DC area, which led to this observation:
You want to know another reason the region is sighing with relief that the snipers have been caught - Halloween is it. No-one I know was particularly thrilled at the prospect of their kids wandering around in the dark with those two murderers still out there.
So I'm glad to see that people are looking forward to Halloween, as they should be. Our neighborhood makes a big deal out of it every year - the folks across the street have more decorations up than some houses have for Christmas. We get so inundated with trick-or-treaters that I always feel compelled to give a heads-up to new arrivals. It's pure chaos, and it's a lot of fun.Posted by Charles Kuffner on October 30, 2002 to Society and cultcha | TrackBack
