On a perfect day, I could stand up and applaud people who decorate the front of their houses, the porch and the lawn for Halloween. Unfortunately, such days are rare. As it is, I can appreciate the fact that some perform this task to try to provide their children with happy memories of childhood and that is a worthwhile undertaking. There are many occasions in the life of adults when childhood memories are all an individual has to fall back on.
