My Helper and Her First Peanut Butter Pumpkin for 2011

Even though it isn’t even Labor Day yet, our Wal-Mart started stocking Halloween candy today.

We brought home four bags. Will they make it to October 31? A better question would be-will they make it to tomorrow?

Although it is way too hot and too early to even think about Halloween, the sight of Halloween candy is welcome to me. I still like Easter candy best, but we have had a long, hard, hot, tiring, dry summer. The economy is in the toilet; thousands of people close to us have lost jobs including my good friend’s husband. Mother Nature has not been the kindest with her tornadoes, floods, hurricanes, and fires around our country. Things are tough all around. The new normal is called “Making Do.”

The candy in the orange and black is a sign that things are about to change, even though we still have 68 more days until the big night. It is a sign that we will all have fun again, someday. That maybe someday it will rain and the sun will finally have mercy. That money can buy happiness-a bag of fun sized chocolates or a few candy corn shaped pumpkins can tell someone you love them for less than four dollars. Halloween candy is a sign of hope.

Here’s to the arrival of the Candy! Now, pass me one of those chocolate pumpkins….

Halloween candy! The pumpkin Reese’s are my favorite. In fact, I love any of the Reese’s around holidays. The Easter eggs have always been my favorite. Nice post!
