I loved Halloween as a kid. We always had a party in our classroom. The afternoon began with a parade around the playground. Parents would come to see all of us in our costumes. Once the parade was finished, it was back to our classroom for the party.
Halloween was a treat because each student received a donut and a small bottle of Coke. It may be hard to imagine but this was a big deal when I was in school. We didn’t have soda machines in the school and we were limited to the amount of soda we could drink at home. They came around to each classroom with a wooden case of soda, one bottle for each child. Although it was a simple treat, it seemed very special to all of us.Continue reading “Celebrating Halloween ,”
