what can I say... this is the final week before halloween and I realized I have shown only one other picture of children wearing costumes here at long island daily photo. this picture is for all of my friends who live in other countries who do not celebrate halloween. though many adults love and partake of this tradition, most people in the united states started celebrating it when they were children. the most important part of this holiday is getting to "be" whatever you want to be. you can be a cat, a wizard, a soccer player or a nerdy pimply faced guy who wears bright red suspenders-please note the above photograph of typical long island children dressed in halloween costumes.
unlike adults, children get to go trick or treating parading from house to house ringing peoples doorbells and shouting "trick or treat!" amazingly, everyone opens up there doors, admires their costumes and then fills their goody bags with candy!
I love this part of "my world". if you would like to see what is going on in other parts of the world, please go here.
