Yesterday was Halloween. I actually had a couple of Raptors tickets for their season/home opener, but I wasn't really in the mood to go. Gave them up to a couple of friends of mine, and decided to stay at home.
It's been a while since I've been at home during Halloween. I always remember Halloween as being one of my favorite holidays. Being at home, it was amazing to see the work that some people put into getting into the Halloween mood. I took a walk around the neighbourhood to see what people had done, and was amazed by the lengths that some families took into decorating their houses for the occasion. Unfortunately, I didn't have my camera, so I couldn't take any pictures.
While my parents weren't the biggest fans of the candy distribution, I decided to give out candy to the kids once I got home. We didn't really have any candy at our house, but it was a good thing that Gary had a lot of junk food around, so I 'borrowed' some of that supply. While not too many kids came up to our house, those that did were probably happy with what they got.
Later that night, Shima messaged me asking for help securing a highly sought after gift (hint, it is something I appeared in a newspaper for last December). Luck must have been upon us, because I found one for her pretty quickly. I don't think I've ever secured one of these items with about one hour's notice.
The Raptors ended up winning their home opener against the 76ers by a score of 106-96. My friends enjoyed the game, I got to enjoy Halloween, and I was able to help a friend out. I think everyone won that night.
Personal, Halloween, Raptors
