My mother-in-law just emailed me a bunch of pictures from Halloween’s of the past. Photos of my husband dressed up to head out trick-or-treating, back in the 1980s.
I wanted to share them because I thought they were cute, but what really struck me while looking at these photos is, they could really have been taken from anytime from 1960 through today. They could be photos of the kids that will be coming to my doorstep come Monday. Aside from the modern leaning towards bought costumes, and plastic pitchforks and swords over homemade tinfoil ones, these pictures are timeless. I think that timelessness is part of what makes Halloween my favourite holiday. And for the record, I’ll take a tinfoil sword over a plastic dollar store one any day.
