Well Halloween is coming soon, marking the beginning of the holiday season with the commencement of Christmas advertising. In my youth the Christmas season started officially after the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day parade. The store would close the night before and when it reopened the day after it was completely decorated for the season.
Halloween used to mean daddy and his girls dressing up to go trick or treating. Daddy went along each year knocking on doors in the neighborhood collecting candy along with other moms, dads and teens who always appeared a bit too old for such activities.
Above is my eldest in her first witches costume – probably 1980.
Toritto in his raincoat with a pair of shorts underneath so that my legs were bare and making sure I hid the shirt collar when we went out; figured I would go as an exhibitionist that year! The adults got the joke. 🙂
Toritto’s pirate year! The jacket is an official America’s Cup hoodie for the 12 meter yacht Clipper, which raced in 1980 off Newport, Rhode Island.
Toritto in his Summer of Love! Nice shirt!
