I just got some unfortunate news regarding the Sedalia Halloween this year. I'm sure it won't be the end of Halloween as we know it, but it will certainly be something that will disappoint parents out there in our area. The Smith-Cotton DECA Trunk-or-Treat will not be happening.
These days Halloween is all Naughty This and Sexy That, but the roots of our spookiest holiday's traditions—from pumpkins to trick-or-treating—run deep, their origins reaching back thousands of years to pre-Christian pagan festivals and superstitions. These quirky bits of trivia about the history of Halloween should help you better appreciate all the ghouls and witches wandering about (and your hoard of candy):
For those of you who've lived in Sedalia for a while, the Quisenberry one-room schoolhouse is one of those staples of life gone by. It's a living, standing tribute to how far Sedalia and the school district has come in such a short span of time. We all may have our opinions about the school system, but we can all agree that what we have now is leaps and bounds of improvement from what the Quisenberry kids used.
As a kid, I remember rushing home to dump all the candy out of my Halloween bag onto the floor to examine everything that I got. Some candy is better than others, and there is nothing better than receiving that full size Snickers bar, but we usually ended up with a big batch of some pretty nasty candy.
Halloween is right around the corner. All the kids are excited to put on their costume, go trick-or-treating and collect all the candy that they can. That is the tradition of Halloween. Adults dress up and usually consume too much of that liquid gold and make a fool of themselves. Halloween doesn't stop there though: people have started to get their dogs in the Halloween festivities.
It's October, which means bonfires, pumpkin patches, and of course, Halloween. More importantly, this is the season of scary attractions and horror films. Here is my top 10 list of "must-see" horror/thriller movies before Halloween:
As you guys are probably recognizing by now, I like to keep people updated on what's going on here locally. I do the Community Calendar listings, and update our events on our website, stuff like that. So it's great for me when I encounter a group that does a lot, it makes the job a little easier. So every now and then I like to touch base with our Sedalia Parks and Recreation. They've always got something up the pipeline.
It's that time of year again, and every super store you walk into has Halloween decorations up and two or three aisles dedicated to Halloween. Halloween has always been about getting dressed up and enjoying the festivities. For adults, we may enjoy a costume party, but the holiday is for the kids. Getting dressed up and going trick or treating to get candy. So why are super stores selling "naughty" outfits for young girls?
