When we think of Halloween, the first thing that comes to mind is candy! And as a parent, I'm a little hesitant to let the kids partake in all that sugar, mostly because of the hyperactivity that ensues and the possible dental bills from the cavities.
But this past Halloween, photographing all the cute and scary costumes in downtown Mission, what I saw was a community that believes in providing a safe and fun environment for little children to get dressed up in. I saw families coming out together sharing memories and laughs and candy. I saw a tradition that I used to love as a child running around with my friends and getting candy from my neighbours.
The sweetness of these moments was my candy this Halloween.
