It’s time again for our twice annual clock-changing ritual, as daylight saving time comes to an end again. At 2 a.m. Sunday, as Halloween celebrations come to an end, let your clocks fall back one hour to return to standard time.
The clock shift means we enjoy an extra hour of sleep on Sunday morning (especially nice for the late-night Halloween revelers). Early risers will awaken to brighter sunny mornings, and the school kids won’t be waiting at the bus stop in the dark. On the flip side, the sun will set an hour earlier, so get ready for a dark commute home from work and perhaps candles on the dinner table.
Kids and adults these days, are having Trunk-or-Treat fun on Halloween. The popular alternative, typically held in a large parking lot, provides children with the opportunity to go from car trunk to car trunk, where participants pass out candy. Often, the trunks are decked out with Halloween decorations. Many churches in our area are having a Trunk-or-Treat celebration, so get ready for a major sugar-high!
I have never been to a truck or treat before, I believe it’s more like a carnival-type atmosphere, which makes it fun for parents too. The Flathead Valley College (where Becca goes) Veterans’ Association and Student Government are hosting a Trunk or Treat, a safe, fun, free, one-stop trick-or-treating event for families. I think we’ll go in your best costumes to check out the decked out vehicle trunks full of treats for the little boos and ghouls! So look for some local trunk or treats and other Halloween events in your area.
Halloween season was so much fun
when I was just a child.
With masks and costumes of every kind
and some were really wild.
Another year has come and gone…
Amazing how time fly’s away …
We just lost one hour of sleep…
Seems like the other day…
If only I were a wild goose (and video)
I’d set my spirit loose,
I’d zoom so high in the sky
And join those flying by.

Thought For Today –
When witches go riding,
and black cats are seen,
the moon laughs and whispers,
’tis near halloween.
