Holding up Halloween: NJ and Stockholm style

New Jersey kids will have to wait until Monday with so many homes in the state are on generators or without power altogether in Frankenstorm’s aftermath. You can’t leave your front porch light on when you have no lights. Or when your driveway is blocked by a fallen tree. Or when your street is under water.

Our kids will work the immediate neighborhood on Friday evening. Our street’s tradition is to organize day and time. As a result, neighbors are prepared and homes are decorated.

We’ll just have to hang on until Friday. And New Jersey, you have a safe Hallween on November 5th!
