“I love that in celebrating Halloween, we can get lost in the magic of make-believe and fantasy no matter what age we are!” — Natalya Neidhart

Wednesday’s word prompt on Susan and my alternate site Weekly Prompts was Halloween and it turned out that this simple enough word triggered a lot of animosity, contentious commentary and a host of assorted back lash that seemed to put this innocent enough day under the scrutiny of an indifferent public.
I see the day simply as a time when children ( and adults if they are so inclined) can put on a costume and enjoy the day in a temporary alter ego. Children and their parents visiting neighbors and heartily and innocently celebrating this days “trick-or-treat” mantra.
When I completed my shopping at a local Safeway outlet earlier today I noticed one cashier ( Carla P.) chatting with her customers and wearing a Halloween witch’s costume. She was the only one in a lineup of seven other employees who was wearing one.
“I put this costume on this morning when my shift started at seven a.m. and have a few more hours to go until my shift ends” she told me.
A tip of the hat and a hearty congrats to this fun loving Safeway staffer.
