My most memorable Halloween is when I was about 8 or 9. I lived on a farm, 16 miles from the city, and at that time I went to Country School (a one room schoolhouse) with grades 1 through 8 in one school. We all came from farms around that area, so the total # of kids was around 8. Almost every year we would go trick or treating to the area farms. One year we asked our parents if we could go to the city, and go from door-to-door. My grandparents lived in a great area in town, so my parents said we could go around where my grandparents lived. It was a wonderful experience, one I will never forget. Including myself, there were 5 of us (my brother, and sisters) We saw more things relating to Halloween, than we had ever seen. And, of course, we got so much candy, and in such a short time. I thought that was so great. When we got home, we put all our candy in our individual piles. I could never remember seeing that much candy at one time. That is one Halloween I will never, ever forget, and I hope I don't.

    Your childhood school sounds like something out of "Little House on the Prairie". Glad you were able to go to the "bit city"! I imagine that was memorable seeing all that candy.

    emoticon Such a nice memory. I grew up on a farm, also, and although we were very poor financially, we didn't know it because we had so many other things that money couldn't buy.
