A Strange Brew

A full moon spotlights a dead patch of night before the decorative witch in our Palladian window.
In a recent letter from our child’s Superintendent of Schools:
“It is with much regret that the climate of today’s society forces such decisions to be implemented. I know that this decision may not be popular with some, however, your child’s security must always be one of our top priorities.”
The Superintendent referred to the cancellation of the traditional Halloween parade.
-Times have changed. I believe that Halloween needs a drastic makeover.

Thankfully Dink's school still had a Halloween parade. Well, it's more of a Halloween mob scene. Each year, the teachers try to get the kids to march around the parking lot. Each year, as soon as junior sees mommy or daddy, they break formation.

Thus ends the parade.

glad you stopped by. I like Dink's school if they still do the parade scene.

I live in Vincentowm/Southampton. It still has a small town feel, 1 school, everyone knows everyone etc. Every year they shut down Mail Street Vincentown and the entire school K through 8 (thus the entire Southampton District) marches down the street. There was well over 1000 well wishers.

I really got upset when heard what Gloucester township did. These kodak moments are precious and few. What is the point, really if we have to stop everything in our lives worth any value.

thanks for sharing. sounds like wonderful memories the town is building. ironically, a day after posting this story, I heard that curfew was moved up earlier for known pedophiles. seriously. now that modification makes sense to me.
