A Special Edition: The Halloween 2016 Wrap-Up Party

It’s Thursday. Carl the Camel and I are tired. He spent all day Wednesday celebrating. I’ve been drying out and packing Halloween decorations.

Halloween was a screaming success.

Monday arrived. With it, the ghost and wizards and goblins smiled on us. The final set-up began at 10 a.m..

This year’s volunteers arrived at 4 p.m. to help with the candle lighting ceremony. Let’s face it, what’s a graveyard without candles? Spooky.

They came early, they came often. We celebrated a new Monday night record of 175 trick or treaters. Sorry NFL we probably lowered your viewing audience by 0.0001 percent.

8:30 p.m. rain fell from the sky and Halloween ended in our neighborhood.

By 11:51 p.m. the decorations disappeared from the yard with the help of a wonderful neighbor and the Christmas lights glowed.

If you don’t show up on October 31st, you’ll miss the show.

Only 362 days until next Halloween.

Thanks for stopping by!

    You did it–your time to shine! 175 is mind-boggling. I bet we had less than 30, but the candy was gone before the treaters were done. I guess we shouldn’t have given each one a huge handful of chocolate bars and treats. I wish the parents wouldn’t take them out while the sun was bright in the sky; it spoils the spookiness! But yours likes dark and spooky. I imagine with 175, that lasted for an hour or two. We don’t get rain here, but at least your rain didn’t start until 8:30pm. And you already have the decorations down? That is amazing. Victory!

    • I was worried we would run out of candy, but my better half stashed some and saved the day.

      Regarding the insanity behind taking down the decorations on Halloween night, we like to see the surprised looks from all the people who drive down our street on November 1st. 😀

      Eventually we’ll get to old for that and it will take as long to put away as it did to put them up.

      I have to confess, our garage is full of drying decorations. Once dry, we can get them all put away.
