Five Little Pumpkins sitting on a gate.
The first one said, “Oh, my it’s getting late”
The second one said, “There are witches in the air.”
The third one said, “But we don’t care.”
The fourth one said, “Let’s run, let’s run!”
The fifth one said, “Isn’t Halloween fun?”
Then Woooooo went the wind And OUT went the lights. And five little pumpkins rolled out of sight.
The above little poem is one that you may remember from childhood or from your children’s childhood. My kids who now are both grown adults learned this when they were little, and we loved it. We had a lot of fun at Halloween! We went to the Pumpkin Patch and looked for the most sincere pumpkin (remember Charlie Brown‘s Halloween?), we carved our pumpkins, and got costumes ready for the big day. And the anticipation of all those goodies! The school parade of costumes, and the school carnival were always high points at this time of year, too.
So, if you celebrate Halloween, get your pumpkins ready, get your costumes prepared, maybe read a scary story or watch a scary movie. And when Halloween comes, be careful, and have fun! BOO TO YOU!
