Sunday is Oct. 31, a time for family fun for young and old. As evening approaches, streets and byways will be filled with witches and goblins, mad hatters and fairy princesses.
Many will be caring scary jack-o’-lantern-shaped containers, hoping to end the evening safe in their homes with those jack-o’-lanterns filled with candy, fruits and everything fattening that you can think of.
We owe our tradition of Halloween to the ancient Celts and the jack-o’-lantern to the many Irish who settled our great land.
So on Sunday night, drive a little more carefully through our Newton County communities. If you wish not to be bothered, turn your porch light off. But if you are like us and enjoy seeing the little ones dressed up in myriad ways, load up with candy and light your driveways and doorways and be prepared to be trick or treated.
