Halloween Wrapup

This year, we has 65 trick-or-treaters (0r maybe 63, as I may have miscounted), which was a record for us (either way)! We now have visitors who remember us for giving away full-size candy bars and comic books, so that's nice...

We put out a teal pumpkin again, and again no one asked for non-food treats, but we might as well keep doing it just because it's a decent thing to do.

This year, instead of watching movies between little beggars, we watched two new Halloween specials (and the World Series). The David S. Pumpkins Animated Halloween Special was OK, but it could have been better -- or could it? Maybe the premise is just to limited to expand.... Meanwhile, Michael Jackson's Halloween was just bad. The story is seriously undercut by the revelation right at the beginning (so this isn't a spoiler) that none of it was real.

Here's a picture from The David S. Pumpkins Animated Halloween Special:

    The number of trick-or-treaters was up this year, to 49! A good recovery from last year. They were all early; we didn't have any after 7:45 PM.…

Sounds like more trick-or-treaters than we got. And I forgot about the teal pumpkin! Gah. Bad me.

We watched Halloween Wars finale and Halloween Baking Championship. Easy shows to pause when you need to head to the door.

David S. Pumpkins was just okay. Wished it had been better. Have yet to watch the Michael Jackson Halloween special. Just not super motivated for it, and your post doesn't help. LOL - I will, though, just to see it for myself.

Happy post-Halloween!

Re: :)
If you're a big fan of Michael Jackson's music you might like the special more -- it's filled with lots of it!
