Memories of Children in Halloween Costumes


please click on photo to enlarge for greater details.


many children love to dress up for halloween in america. long island natives are no exception. I can never get over the fact that every year people stockpile their homes with candy in anticipation of halloween trick or treaters such as this witch and this bumble bee. then again, everyone was a child at one point in their lives.

this photo was taken in 1995 in the suburbs of long island.
if you would like to participate in abc wednesdays, go here. todays letter is the letter M.
my picture is about memories, wonderful ones, here on long island.

Although Halloween is vaguely mentioned in Australia we don't really celebrate it. But it obviously brings a lot of pleasure to children in your part of the world.

I'm still learning about Halloween from the many who are blogging about it. I read about it in Archies Comics as a kid.
Great photo. Sounds like fun.

Cute costumes. Cute kids.

I've already written a post I'll publish closer to Halloween about my childhood memories of the day. Sadly, it isn't what it used to be.

Soon more to be made too.

Thinking back on it, I never spent a lot of time on my costume -- my interest was purely in how full I was going to get my sack of candy...

It's intriguing to me, as a Brit. Nobody 'did' Halloween when I was a child, and yet it seems part of every American's fond childhood memories!

That little bee is so cute!! Is the beautiful witch his sister?

Halloween used to be fun when my kids were young before all the sickos in the country changed it forever.
Now where I live, the date is changed to a Friday or Saturday, there is no more door to door trick or treating and never any homemade Halloween goodies for the kids.
How very sad.
(But I still love Halloween!)

I thought of the word "memories" too but couldn't decide which to use, so I went with when I took my daughter to the Scottish moors. Her favourite holiday is Halloween as it's 2 days after her birthday! So we have LOTS of great Halloween/birthday memories! :D

Soon it will no longer be a memory but a reality as kids will be everywhere wearing their Halloween costumes! Marvelous post just in time!

Katney said...

cute costumes. I remember my kids always started asking about their Halloween costume about mid-August. I would tell them it was too early, that any costume tha took more than a day to make was too much. We had some doozies.
