    I remember once when I was young an old lady was giving out hard boiled eggs as treats. Not exactly what a kid wants on Halloween.

    I recieved a boiled egg once on Halloween from an old lady in town that didn’t want to promote tooth decay.

    When I was a little girl I use to love to watch its the great pumpkin charlie brown. Well this one year I went out trick or treating and when I came home I watched my favorite halloween show Its the great pumpkin Charlie Brown. I fell asleep not long after that and I began to dream I was in that show. Only this time I was in a field of the candy pumkins and candy corn. I was growning candy corn for acres and acres and pumkins as far as the eye could see. I was so happy I would eat and eat until I would blow up like a balloon and then I woke up and boy I just had to go find me some of that candy. Those have been my favorite candies to this day. Almost 48 years laters.
