This is a post I made in 2005 which I have updated a bit.

Halloween is one of those holidays when you wish your kids were still 2 or 3 or 4 years of age.

I remember back to when I took our young kids out "trick or treating" or covering the living room floor with newspapers to help them carve out pumpkins. I will never forget the time our son, age 2 or so, figured out what "trick or treating" was all about. It was like a light went on in his head; "hey, you walk up to some one's door and they give you candy." I remember when our daughter went out as a princes or the Swiss dress outfit she wore, oh many years ago. My regret is that I did not let them go that extra block they always want to go.
