Re: Halloween 2012 - Costumes, Ideas, & Photos Thread
Well, I'm hopeful that I'll still want to be Sherlock Holmes next year, as all the Halloween events I was planning on have been canceled. The kids and businesses were troopers though, Trick or Treating in my neighborhood in Brooklyn in full force. A gang of costumed children between the ages of about 5 and 9, were giving out candy to all the grown-ups who passed by, and they dumped handfuls in my grocery bag. I asked them why they were giving away all their candy and the oldest girl (dressed as a pirate) said that it was her idea, to cheer up the grown-ups after the storm. I got a lump in my throat and went all teary!
That is just wonderful. It brought a tear to my eye as well.
I'm not a geek, I'm an aficionado.
