A story of Halloween kindness.
« on: November 02, 2012, 09:52:50 PM »
 My niece and nephew have been sick most of this week. So no T-O-Ting for them this year, they were not too bothered by it really, but apparently their neighbors were.  There are only 12 houses on their street and 10 of the neighbors brought treats over for the kids. Including their newest neighbor who backed cookies for them, and brought them to the kid - still warm from the over.
   This is this families first every halloween as they are refugees from Burma and when the mother presented the cookies to my sister she said in broken in English, "The kids are sick, no trick, cookies for them." 
   The kids and their parents were so touched that their neighbors would reverse trick or treat so they didn't miss out.

This is indeed a charming and touching Halloween story! 

It sounds like your sister lives in a wonderful, caring, sharing neighborhood.  We should all be so fortunate.

What a lovely and moving story. They are so lucky to live in such a delightful neighbourhood.

Thank you, some of the other threads were leaving me a bit sad about the holiday- it's nice to see some folks have holiday spirit! :)

I hope your niece and nephew are feeling better soon.

I love the bolded so much.

And for the record, it is a bit of dust that made my eyes well up. ... that is my story.

It's awfully dusty over here, too.
