PLEASE DONT SCARE THE KIDS

“Good morning world!  PLEASE DONT SCARE THE KIDS !

And making that statement,while staying with my same scary theme, we all know it is the night before Halloween!

That means, it is also the night before the Trick or Treat show begins, and its actually alright to Scream!
  
But Wait.....NOT Everybody feels that way!

So tomorrow night, as old and young are all trying to have fun each in their own  way..... realizing that not everybody thinks screaming is neat or Okay...

we must understand there Needs to be many Sweet Safe Places for those who are just playing. 
 
That's why, to show the kids the softer side of life, there are things we need to do and other things we must not say too... to make sure everything is alright!
 
So following the Rule of "do unto others as you want them to do unto you" we must be kind to the kids who are sweetly saying Trick or Treat... while looking only for tasty treats, praying to avoid any mean icky tricks highlighted by witches flying by in the moonlight. 
 
Because tomorrow night there will be many Vampires, Giants, Ghosts also some Ghouls knocking on our door, seen out and about on our streets, who don’t have a clue what Scary really means! 
 
Therefore, to me in that Playtime alien invasion we all need to be cautious, courteous, and caring to the little zombies and headless men out there who we meet and greet.

Yes indeed, as the safe homes represented, and the trusted adults known, are being weirdly transformed and invaded by witches, vampires, and terrifying ghosts who we don't know...
 
everybody must realize that much more is going on behind-the-scenes on Halloween, while the children are out, also about looking for candy to trade, and eat.
 
Bottom line. We all need to be aware much more will be happening on this scary make-believe day, as the darling masked children also known as neat treat seeking Rockets are playing.

Yes as the kids are knocking on our door, while innocently walking up to us, or sweetly straying into our webbed nests of scary things much more is going on for sure during Halloween!

So, in that tricky statement as the kids are asking us for candy, do we ever really know what issues are hiding behind the children's masks? 

Do we really know how fast their little hearts are beating in their chests?

And Without asking, while looking at the weird shadows they cast... do we know if the child behind the mask is actually happy?

Do we really know what's going on inside of their heads as they walk the streets of the worm filled dead? 

Do we know if they are painfully shy? 
Do we know if any of the young ones hiding behind their costumes going on by are silently crying ?
 
And not knowing the answers to those questions without knowing why they are shy… or if they are crying….we need to nicely ask how are they doing. 
 
Then asking that “Hi how are you” question as the haunted night try's to pass by....thinking of the children as they grab and dash,
 
we need to REMOVE OUR SCARY MASKS! 
 
That means we NEED TO PUT THE TREAT BACK IN HALLOWEEN. 
  
Hence in doing all of that we should NOT SCARE THE CHILDREN, or embarrass them on that evening. 
 
And if they do not say anything when we hand them their treats, we should not lose our temper or scold them as they are leaving. 
 
We should also not make fun of them, or mock them if they do not respond appropriately by saying "thank you." right away.
 
We should not  get mad if the kids do not laugh, while peeking over their see and say mask brims looking into our scary unfamiliar faces.
And, we should also not demand them to do any tricks for us, or scream, or harass them as the sugary tempting candy is passed !
So, making Hallowed-ween SWEET again, in that Heavenly task silently seeking their safety..... we should give them the real treat that lasts. 
 
That means, we should Silently PRAY for them to stay safe throughout their life, as they grab their candy and dash!
Yes indeed by FOLLOWING THE GOLDEN RULE….to do to others what you would want them to do to you…..there are many things we should NOT do on Halloween eve.
 
And the number one THING  is....
 
WE SHOULD NOT SCARE THE KIDS silly.....
 
Because on that Scary night filled with Fright , we need to be reminded that our innocent Angelic children hiding behind their smiles are already Fearful While Trick and Treating!
 
After all haven't we always told our kids....Not to accept candy from strangers who they meet.
 
But now all of a sudden that's okay just because it is Halloween?
 
Yes to them that contradiction of instruction is very scary and confusing.

So bottom line one more time...lets put the treat back into Halloween.

That means, please Pray for the ones who you meet and greet, as they walk away.

And Please Do not Scare the Kids on Halloween... or any day!” Joslin Fitzgerald.
