All Hallows' Eve

What is it about Hallowe'en that has everyone with kids leaving the office early? What time do they go trick or treating? And how long does it actually take to throw a costume on a kid?

These are things I don't get. Will someone please explain?

I dunno.

And was "All Hallow's Eve" last night? You know, the night before Halloween?

I beg to differ with the angry gnome. "All Hallow's Eve" is in fact the 31st of October. Isn't it the eve of of "All Saints Day"?

I think I've got the answer here.

It's getting harder and harder to celebrate Halloween, I find. I left my office at the normal time last night, picked up Darcy and went home. We were barely in the door when the first trick-or-treaters came to the door. Darcy was also the last one at the babysitter's house yesterday, because everyone else had picked up their kids early. I guess they want the kids out while there's daylight for as long as possible, but give us time to get home so we can hand out treats! I'm going to post more about this on my blog too.
