BOO! Happy Halloween everyone! This will be a different Halloween than we all recall because of the infamous virus. Let’s face it, we have to make the best of things as they are right now and celebrate in a different way. When fun is on your radar you will find it sooner than you think.

Halloween wasn’t always a special event in the United States until the 1800’s. It began as a community gathering to get neighbors to know one another. By 1920-1950 trick or treating and costumes were encouraged mostly as a business opportunity in this country. Kids loved it and it has weathered every unexpected storm and it will weather this one.
Have a family get together going back to the old tradition. Make some pumpkin bread tonight and share it with family and friends. Bon Appetit!
