I want to trick or treat here: Couple hands out books instead of candy
Happy Halloween everyone! Go hug your favorite ghoul or vampire & make merry!
Speaking of making merry, I think I've found one of the coolest places to trick or treat. In Kennewick, Washington there's a couple who have decided to forget the candy & give kids a treat that they can enjoy for far longer than they would a tootsie roll or snickers bar.
The Reeves are handing out books to the children that come through have their choice of books such as Captain Snap and the Children of Vinegar Lane as well as books for various other age groups & interests. They said that this is their second year doing it & that last year not a single kid (or parent) went away unhappy.
Isn't that just the coolest? Makes me wish I both lived in Washington & was young enough to trick or treat in their neighborhood.
