Jack and his family
This post has some explanations;
In the Land of Tummy, Halloween was never celebrated, and so us older ones don't really know what it is all about. Yet over the last few years, the wee little ones from all over the Land of Tummy seem to understand exactly what it is about;
Dressing up and eating lollies!
(lollies are also known as candy in many parts of the world.)
Wee Tiny, being very tiny was looking forward to the unbridled unhinged lollie festival that is Halloween. Even though she is very tiny, she seems to have some grasp on what is going on, and felt that I should understood the importance of Halloween.
So Wee Tiny explained it to me
Wee Tiny: A hello-ing, a lollies!
So Wee Small clarified what Wee Tiny had explained.
Wee Small: You go a hello-ing and you get lollies.
Me: A hello-ing?
The Little One, being the eldest, applied logic to Wee Small's clarification of Wee Tiny's explanation.
The Little One: You go to peoples places and say "Hello" and they give you lollies. That is why it is called "Hello-ing."
So we went to many peoples places that had orange and black balloons, the little ones said hello, and they got lollies. It seemed to work for them. We all had fun even though none of us really know what it is all about.
The next day Wee Golden dropped by, and I thought I would ask him what it is all about. Wee Golden thought I was silly, and he didn't tell me what it was about. Though Wee Golden did tell me something about Halloween that he thought I should know.
Wee Golden: It's not going to be Halloween for another six hundred and ninety five years.
Well that is a shame, but I think the little ones may just have enough lollies to last until then.
