October 31, 2012. Sketching on Halloween. My son's first Halloween, really, at least in America, where people celebrate it. He passed out candy at the door to all the kids. (And sometimes kids that looked older than me.) Our dog stood on the back of the chair and watched all the trick or treaters out the window. Our candy began running low, so my wife started passing out packets of hot chocolate. I told her we need to turn off the lights and hide before we have to start passing out cans of corn.
