I know, I know, Halloween was over on Monday evening, and I must admit I am happy. I also have to admit I had as good a time this Halloween as the kids did. Two weeks ago, my husband and I visited Boonesborough State Park and saw all the wonderful Halloween decorations that turn that park into “Halloween Mania,” and we reminisced at all the times we participated in dressing up and decorating our campsite. Later that night, we watched as our three grandsons went through the haunted cemetery over and over.

Halloween - my favorite day of the year. The one day that for a few cents I and my family can make so many kids happy. This is the 19th year my family has come to my house and handed out candy. We don't care if 20 kids come by, or 70. We don't care if it's warm or snowing, because we usually have two handfuls of candy for them all. This was a great Halloween with so many costumes and so many young children that I hope will come by next year when they can walk or talk. We weren't kidding when we told the kids to come back next year!

" The secret was out Friday as those responsible for maintaining the legacy of Lancaster's buttery smooth signature confection celebrated the product's 50th birthday with a packed party at the current South Campbell Street store where the candy is now made and sold.
