PHOTOS: Saturday Trick-or-Treating a Sweet Treat in Lexington
Families around Lexington re-stage Halloween for the kids.
Saturday, Nov. 5 became Halloween for many kids young and old in Lexington this year. The temporary postponement of the spooky and sweet holiday did not dampen spirits as many families took to the streets to Trick-or-Treat.
Carved pumpkins were lit on many doorsteps, and faux graveyards were righted after the wind and snow brought by last weekend's nor'easter. Aside from many downed branches and a few remaining snowpiles, the evening seemed just like previous Halloween nights.
It was chilly outside, but the lure of candy was just too tempting!
It was warming to see a community willing to re-stage a much-loved kids activity - with many keeping their decorations lit and set-up ... and being ready to answer the door throughout the evening.
Note: Nov. 5 is also Guy Fawkes night - a popular British celebration, marked with fireworks and a bonfire - to commemorate the night that Guy Fawkes was 'unsuccessful' at blowing up the Houses of Parliament and the then reigning King.
