Letter: Halloween going strong in Kettle Valley

"My newly acquired ghouls and ghosts will sit quietly in the garage for 364 days until they can delight hundreds of children" next year.

To the editor:

I have just read Charlie Hodge’s editorial about Halloween in the Oct 28 edition.[Adults Taking Over What Should Be Fun Event for Kids, Kelowna Capital News.]

I wish to let him know that Halloween is alive and well and thriving vigorously in Kettle Valley.

I gave out candy to over 600 trick or treaters [this year], their costumes were fantastic!

It is a night we look forward each fall. In fact this morning I was at Walmart’s early opening to stock up on heavily discounted decorations for next year. My newly acquired ghouls and ghosts will sit quietly in the garage for 364 days, until they can delight hundreds of children and possibly hundreds of adults accompanying them.

Come and visit us next year and join the fun.

Melanie Lee, Kelowna
