Halloween at Lake Manassas

Halloween at Lake Manassas!

One of the things I love about my community, Lake Manassas, is Halloween.  This holiday is celebrated with much joy and exuberance in Lake Manassas and reminds me of growing up in my close knit community way back when.  Children were garbed in all sorts of fun and playful costumes as they cheerfully jogged from house to house with rousing chants of “Trick or Treat” at every doorstep.  Ghastly ghouls, fashionable vampires, and even Darth Vader stopped by for a quick visit and an opportunity to earn a chocolate treat for their dress up efforts.  Moms and Dads were standing by curbside with glow sticks and flashlights.  We even had a pickup truck with a trailer loaded with hay bales providing hay rides for the kids.  My children enjoyed years of trick or treating in this community and have happy memories that I hope they will share and pass along to their kids one day.  My role this year was handing out candy.  In past years, I had the opportunity of walking with the kids and stopping by to say hello at neighbor’s homes.  This year as I passed out Halloween treats a few things amazed me.  For one, children that I first met when they were babies are now growing up and joyfully trick or treating in costume.  It makes me realize how quickly time passes.   For another, Lake Manassas is a beautiful, warm and welcoming place where neighbors embrace, not only the Halloween Holiday, but each other as we watch our children grow in this great community.  I look forward to Halloween each year here in Lake Manassas.  I hope that your holiday was as heartwarming and as special as my Halloween this year.
