I actually like Halloween. I know, I’m usually the one making fun of the costume-clad candy beggars, but I really do like the holiday. Some of those kids are so cute, some are trying to scare us to death, and some … well, some just come for the Snickers bar.
I read an article at The Boot yesterday, and they had an opportunity to talk to Randy Houser, Luke Bryan, and a few others about some of their Halloween memories. I’ve met Luke a time or two, and I’ve had an opportunity to spend a little time with Randy over the past two years. So I was anxious to read about what they had to say.
Randy talked about cool stuff … like being 10 years old and cuddling with his little girl friend on a hay ride. That actually sounds like a very pleasant memory. Luke Bryan talked about wanting spending Halloween with his oldest son, because he hasn’t had a chance to do that yet.
Uncle Kracker said one year, he dressed like Peter Criss from KISS, and he added "That it was much cooler back then. And he said, “Even with my own kids, they always have the dumbest costumes for toddlers or kids. Who wants to dress their infant up as little Tootsie roll.” Oh, I don’t know, I think a Tootsie Roll is a cute costume.
Guys, let me add one of my memories. My sister and brother and I used to head out to collect candy. We would gather up a bag full (each), and carry it home and dump it in a huge bowl. Then we went out for more.
One year, I got sick, and I didn’t get to go. I watched my brother and sister carry home their candy and dump pit into the big bowl. And as soon as they left to go get more, I saw Dad handing out their candy to all the kids who knocked on our door. Up until that night, I always wondered why we collected so much candy, and didn’t have much at the end of the night.
Thanks to The Boot for the cool article. Talk to you soon!
