A Halloween memory
This is a quick countdown to Halloween post. I need no picture this time, I am sharing a memory, please feel free to share yours on the comments, or on your own blog(s). So yes, I was re-reading old posts of mine, including one where I asked my francophone readers what are her most vivid memories of Halloween. My brother PJ mentioned a snowy Halloween night when he fell on his back, his second snowy Halloween. "I don't remember my first, but I remember this one was not my first." I think this line is good enough to be homologued as a great unknown line. I do not remember the fall, but I do remember the snow. I was 11 at that time, it had been a cold October and it ended up looking more like winter than autumn. We did trick or treat in a few inches of snow. White Halloween nights are rare, but they are striking. This one was the coldest, snowiest I remember. I do prefer it without snow, but I still love my Halloween cold, therefore I prefer it a snowy Halloween to one that is too mild. So what are your Halloween memories?
