Pumpkin Crafting

During our annual Beggars’ Night candy giveaway, we had praises for the kids’ pumpkins. I think the kids’ pumpkins always look good, but never knew that any strangers agreed. We several people comment on them tonight.

Des Moines’ Trick or Treat night, Beggars’ Night, is a fun time. Since I grew up in the area, I thought everyone had to tell jokes before getting their candy. After discussing this practice on a homeschool email loop (can’t remember which one), I learned that it is not custom for most places. The Des Moines Register, the daily newspaper here, ran a story on it today. I’ll put some of it here; the entire article can be found here.
