To Trick or Treat? That is the Question!

In just a few days, people dressed in fanciful clothes will show up at your doorstep. And no, I’m not talking about Mormons or Jehovah’s Witnesses.  Although, it would be an ideal time to go door-to-door wouldn’t it?  Almost everyone opens up the door on Halloween.  But on October 31st, children all over the country will be ringing doorbells and shouting “Trick or treat!”  And … Continue reading To Trick or Treat?
