Towns issue Trick or Treat times

Sunday, October 26, 2008

The witching hours have been officially set for Clay County's ghosts and goblins to take to the streets in a scavenger hunt for those tasty Halloween treats.

Officials in the following communities suggest those residents who want to pass out candy to turn on their porch lights on the following dates and times:

* Brazil: Oct. 30, from 6-8 p.m., limited at the Brazil City Firehouse and Oct. 31, 5:30-8:30 p.m., throughout the city,

* Carbon: Oct. 31, 5:30-8:30 p.m.,

* Center Point: Oct. 30-31, 6-8 p.m.,

* Clay City: Oct. 31, 6-9 p.m.,

* Harmony: Oct. 30-31, 6-9 p.m.,

* Knightsville: Oct. 30-31, 6-9 p.m., and

* Staunton: Oct. 30, 6-9 p.m.

According to the Clay County Sheriff's Department, trick-or-treat hours in rural county areas are not scheduled, which makes trick-or-treat times at the discretion of rural residents. However, it is recommended that parents follow the times and dates set forth by the closest community.

Finally some sanity around here about Halloween. I have never lived anywhere where they celebrated Halloween for two nights until I moved here. We don't celebrate Christmas for 2 days, or Thanksgiving for 2 days or Valentines Day for more than one day, so why Halloween. I applaud those who made this decision.

Maybe you don't celebrate Thanksgiving two days, personally I celebrate four days & Christmas easily gets two days plus a weekend some years & to folks with little ones in a rural area Halloween needs to be two evenings ~ just to be able to visit family & friends ~ there's nothing insane about it ~ it's called Family Fun ~ try some instead of finding fault ~ by the way, you aren't in Kansas anymore ~

We're big fans of the "2 night trick or treating" celebration. One night is reserved for my kids getting to show off their costumes and go door to door in the neighborhood and the other night is reserved for staying home and handing out treats to all. It has become quite the family tradition at our house...even my teenage neice and nephew come over to hand out treats and then enjoy a big family meal afterwards. My kids get just as much enjoyment out of handing treats out as going door to door. Having 2 nights instead of one makes it possible for us to enjoy the holiday both ways...so thanks BRAZIL!!
