Day 61: Trick or Treat

Day 61 Trick or Treat:
“Trick or treat!” was the chorus of the night. The children went sprinting from door to door, light to light, in search of candy.
Candy so sugary it would make the back of your throat tickle and cavities ache. Gummies that turned tongues green or blue. Chocolate that was more milk that cocoa.
But the costumes were the real treat. Festive wings, colorful masks, and dark hooded capes flooded the streets.
Life was never so good except on Halloween.
