I took two days to build some monsters and to decorate the entry path to my door for Halloween. I spent money I should have used to pay bills to buy candy and made very nice bags to pass out to children.

The night before Halloween someone stole my monsters, leaving me with no decent decorations. I took down the remaining lights and stuff I had to please the children.

I am so hurt and upset by the theft that I do not wish to pass out candy. I have also decided to quit celebrating Halloween.

As a child, I loved Halloween and free candy. It is sad that the children of the future will miss out on these experiences because of a few people that feel the need to steal people’s decorations. My neighbor also had tombstones and lights stolen.

My monsters were made from items I have had for over 25 years. It’s sad people can’t build their own, or aren’t smart enough to create their own.
