Why I hate Halloween

by francescavitali on October 31, 2008

Sorry, today my post has nothing to do with my jewelry, it is about why I hate Halloween!
I’m Italian, and when I left Italy in 2000 there was no sign of Halloween celebration there, the 1th of November is the real holiday for us. Halloween was something that I’ve seen only in the movies.
So you can imagine how thrilled I was for my very first Halloween.
I had studied “Halloween how-to” quite well, I had asked around what kind of treats I should have, and how should I greet the kids…so I was ready! The house was full of chocolates and candies, the lights were all on and in addition I came home earlier than usual (which implies I had to spend an extra hour stuck on the L.A. freeways traffic).
I waited and waited and waited….not even one kid showed up and the worst part was that next day I called my parents in Italy and they told me that some kids had rung at their door asking “Dolcetto o scherzetto” (trick or treats)!

In conclusion, this year I’m not yet ready to forgive Halloween but at least I put on a costume!

It all depends on where you live. My parents live on a tiny, out-of-the-way dead-end street, and get maybe 5 kids at their door. Also, if you live in an apartment complex, you probably won’t get many (if any) kids. I’m excited because this year I finally live in a real neighborhood, with quite a few kids living around me! So I finally get to hand out candy again, lol…

Also, it helps to have some way for kids to know they can come to your door, like pumpkins on your porch, or any decorations really.
