Treats Please

Next week-end we can expect lots of knocks on lots of doors from littlekins uttering those famous words ‘Trick or Treat’.

I’ve never been one to be very crazy about Halloween, but some people really enjoy it. It’s just not my thing, but the daughter-in-law and son found this costume and thought it would be fun on Razzy. Not sure though that he agrees.

This little guy waits for no holiday to enjoy his treats. His internal clock goes off several times during the day demanding treats. If he’s giving you a certain stare, you know you forgot to head to the treats jar. The best fun is having him guess which hand has the treat or under which cup. His sniffer is pretty good though as he has it down to finding it within seconds.

A Little History

(excerpt taken from history.com)if you want to read more.

Straddling the line between fall and winter, plenty and paucity, life and death, Halloween is a time of celebration and superstition. It is thought to have originated with the ancient Celtic festival of Samhain, when people would light bonfires and wear costumes to ward off roaming ghosts. In the eighth century, Pope Gregory III designated November 1 as a time to honor all saints and martyrs; the holiday, All Saints’ Day, incorporated some of the traditions of Samhain. The evening before was known as All Hallows’ Eve and later Halloween. Over time, Halloween evolved into a secular, community-based event characterized by child-friendly activities such as trick-or-treating. In a number of countries around the world, as the days grow shorter and the nights get colder, people continue to usher in the winter season with gatherings, costumes and sweet treats.

Whether you’re one to enjoy Halloween or not, have a great Fall as we head into the Holiday Season ahead.

    1. They definitely. We were going to resist even having another fur baby after the kids grew up and moved out and the their dog got older and died, but here we are seven years later and I couldn’t resist this little mug. They do entertain and are enjoyable. 🙂
