OK, now I get it.

I was really dreading taking my kid Trick-or-Treating, even to the point of considering hiring a kid from our church (maybe 10-12) to take him around for an hour while I gave out candy at home. But I never managed to call said kid, so took him myself.

And loved it.

I didn't count on the pride of having a kid, now brave enough to march right up to a door, ring the doorbell, wait (well, sometimes), yell out "Trick or Treat!" and then "Thank you" after receiving (and peering interested into his bag at) candy. It rocks.

We'll be doing this again in another 365 days. Oh yes we will.
