Spirits of Halloweens Past

I love Halloween. It's my favorite holiday! I have fond memories of my grandmother taking me trick-or-treating and then staying home with her after I turned 10 to hand out special bags of candy and toys to kids.

She had a fun-loving and goofy side -- she surprised me with a knitted and crocheted pumpkin one year! My kids love this guy.


Three years ago it was also my grandmother's last night so we light a special candle called a Yahrzeit in her memory.



Hope your Halloween is filled with fun surprises and loving memories!
