Halloween is almost here
It’s a day that kids look forward to all year, adults too for that matter.
People spend months planning their costumes and only get to wear it for a few hours.
The holiday, which I am sure some people view as a negative celebration, is an evening that actually brings joy to many people.
Whether it’s for the love of the scare or to see the smiles on the children’s faces, it’s a day that you see the community come together.
Every household makes time in their day to purchase a bag or two of candy, and they make sure there is at least one adult home to pass out candy to their neighbors children.
That’s a pretty kind gesture if you ask me.
And of course there is always that neighbor who spends the entire month of October decorating their front yard in order to create that spooky environment on the street. Whether it’s with props, music, or their own version of Freight World - their dedication to the event is driven on a selfless notion of putting a smile on the faces of those little guys and ghouls trotting through the neighborhood.
Many of those folks often say, “The children look forward to this.”
Having only been in the community for one-year now, I am curious as to which house that is?
If any residents who live in North Tonawanda, the City of Tonawanda, the Town of Tonawanda or Kenmore know of a house that decorates annually please email their home address to Kori Sciandra at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We at Metro, would like to come see the house in person and take a photo for the paper.
For those of you dressing up this Halloween, please remember to wear reflective clothing so that motorists can see you in the dark.
And to the motorists, lets keep the children safe this year and use caution as we are driving though neighborhoods.
