Meet Martha & Jimmy. Clay & Bobby Sue. Judy & Buzz.
They did not know the Fall Festival. They knew Halloween. Witches. Ghosts. Jack-O-Lanterns. Candy. Apple cider.
They didn’t have the Wii, or iPhones or MySpace. They saw their Top 5 in person.
They were not concerned about razor blades or trans fats. They did not know global warming or AIDS.
They were just kids being kids.
It was the Immaculate Heart Convent Halloween Party. The year was 1951.
