Good morning world tonight is Halloween, and many vampires with Giants will be seen out about on our streets! Therefore to me in that invasion we all need to be cautious, courteous, and caring to the little Boo BOO ones out there who we meet and greet.
Yes as the safe homes represented, and the trusted adults known, are being transformed and invaded by ghouls, vampires, and terrifying ghosts on their own .... much more is going on behind-the-scenes today, while the children are out and about looking for candy to trade, eat, and take.
Accordingly we all need to be aware that much more is happening on this scary make-believe day, as these darling masked children and treat seeking Rockets are knocking on our door innocently walking up to us, or sweetly straying into our web nests.
So in that statement do we ever really know what mental issues are hiding behind the children's masks?
Yes without asking, do we know if the child has special needs, or if they are painfully shy, or if any of the young ones going on have a stutter that is flying by?
Thus without knowing why they are shy we need to gently ask how they are doing.
Then thinking of the children we also need to remove our scary mask!
Absolutely in that task we should sweetly inquire if they would like a treat. No we should not demand them to do any tricks for us, or scream or harass them as the sweet tempting candy is passed !
Hence in doing all of that we should also not scare the children, or embarrass them. We should then not lose our temper or scold them.
We should not make fun of them, or mock them if they do not respond appropriately by saying "thank you."
No don't get mad if they do not laugh while peeking over their see and say costumes mask brims into our scary faces.
Yes indeed there are many things we should NOT do on Halloween eve, because we need to be reminded that many children are already fearful in the trick and treating cause.
So for instance we must not meet the kids at the door screaming bloody murder. We should furthermore not greet them dipping in our disgusting gangrene gauze! Sadly that is a horrible frightening missing head disturbing image none of us wants!
Yes indeed we should remember that a friendly stabbed neighbor in a screaming crisis, or a nice mother, or kind of father showing up the door wearing a bloody nose on somebody that they know.... (who is now sporting a witches green wart nose,)
in all that terror found in an adult haunting.... Or a clowns fear to the child is very confusing!
Understandably in the same way a rope draped around a swollen neck, or a bloody knife sticking out of the head or a trusted neighbor, with a caved in bruised chess..... Or a mommy dressed as a mummy Is not the best image for sweet dreams
Connectively an adult Who the child knows (who is now a strange person moaning and viciously strangled, or mutilated, or torn apart or mashed)..... looking dead from a car crash, does not make a child happy in the treat seeking quest.
Accordingly all that pretend misery to us is fun, but to a small one.... that horror could stick with the child and indefinitely show up in a lifetime of bad frightful memories, as their trembling fears with secretive thoughts and haunted dreams become a therapy reality!
So please remember children have a hard time knowing the difference between actuality and fantasy!
Therefore before we open up the door we must remember to be gentle around the children, because these are little impressionable minds and very tender sweethearts.
Yes please be nice to the children, and don't make them afraid of the dark!
In saying that let's all remember to put the HAPPY back in Halloween as we take the evil scheme out of the demonic screaming part!
Yes please consider the children's best interest right from the start!
Happily let's concentrate on the Angels not the Devils in our life!
Let's offer the treat not a trick to the children going by!
Let's not traumatize our children by screaming bloody murder in the night, and instead let's set good Christian examples showing them what's good, bad, wrong, and right.
Yes let's be kind!
Let's be nice!
Yes let's take the witch out and put the happy cherub back into Halloween's moonlight!
And let's not scare the children this time! " Joslin Fitzgerald
