Report from Halloween's Front Lines
Place: The homefront
Mission: Hand out candy while wife takes brood out trick-or-treating
Secondary Mission: Prevent egging of house
Report: While conducting above operation, answered diminutive knock on door. On doorstep was young girl, approximate age, 8. Dressed as witch. Not unusual for Halloween. But, just as I was reaching into the candy bowl, I observed that the subject witch, possibly in an attempt at realism, and hopefully through ignorance, was wearing a pentagram medallion. A pentagram medallion!!
Handed out candy while silently reciting St. Michael prayer. Closed door and wondered whether other neighbors are freaked out in the opposite way by my children dressed up as Saints.
