I've got a very excited 4-year old today. She is looking forward to her first proper trick-or-treat adventure tonight (in past years, she's dressed up to help hand out candy). Thanks to Grammy and Papa, she is going to be dressed as Snow White (black wig and all) and I'm very grateful it takes so little to make her happy.
Halloween around here seems to be more about the darker side of the tradition than the fun side. There are far more devils, ghouls, witches, undead and vampires than lighter characters. This is a concern to some, especially the Bishop of Bolton who has made a statement about it. I think it did seem to have an inpact this year, with retailers offering a wider range of costumes, especially for those smaller ones.
