One of my favorites is the Beach Boys "Kokomo", and this is a parody on that song, sooo relaxing for me on a busy Halloween night.  Please click HERE

AMENDED @ 2230 Hrs 10/31/09:

Tonight I spent doing a fun thing for this Granddad.   With my son and two Grandsons we went out "trick-or-treating". 

It was pure fun to see many hundreds of people milling around our chosen vicinity,

not arguing, not fighting, but getting along (as in PEACE!).  

Of my drunk Halloweens I could recall, none were deadly, but could easily have been.  I shudder to think what happened during those I cannot remember...but I do know a lot of people did not talk to me a day or so later.

The warmth of souls and weather tonight provided access to many strange and unusual  sights of dress and undress. Some residents had set up tables of cookies, cider, soda, and other stuff to give away to all.

And everyone was so friendly...all it takes is a smile, and smiles were everywhere, and happiness reigned in the streets.  
Sobriety has allowed me to revel in these moments of caring and sharing tonight, in the warm darkness of a Naples Florida neighborhood.

Peeps, I love you all!
...and REALLY pray PEACE for the WORLD
and SOBER for US Peeps today, OK?

You make it sound like the middle of June in FL. This is what it's all about...fun through the eyes of a child. What a perfect night!
