Halloween in the Cayman Islands

There is no better time to restock candy supplies than Halloween.
Every year, Sophie and Dominic get excited to done a costume and walk the neighborhood collecting candy. Nadine and I just get excited to just see them dressed up and having fun.

Over previous Halloweens, one of us would just sit back at the house passing out candy and the other would accompany the kids. This year, we joined a friend in her neighborhood where all the kids and parents walked together from house to house to experience a Cayman Halloween.
Yet this year, there was one big difference at Halloween. Houses kindly thought about the adult chaperones. In addition to Kit Kats and Hershey Kisses, there were coolers of beer in the "big kid" section. So while Sophie and Dominic yelled "Trick or Treat", I decided between a cold Heineken or Corona in the humid air.
This is a tradition I could throughly support. What better way, and I am positive that there aren't any better ones, to get more fathers spending quality time with their kids. And think of the fun that everyone would have - kids running around on a sugar high and their fathers chasing them with a little a liquid courage.
