October 31st- a day that holds some of my fondest childhood memories. One of my earliest memories of this day was when I dressed up as a Dalmatian (yes, I was obsessed with the movie as a kid) and my parents took me trick or treating in our neighborhood. The night sky would be lit up with fireworks, and being a kid still, they would absolutely terrify me. When we returned home, my parents would help me remove the layers of makeup, signaling the end of the night. These memories of dressing up, going for candy, watching fireworks, and taking off the makeup still make me smile when I think about Halloween.
