We kids were always trying to plan something to have “fun.” It was about a week before Halloween and my step-brother and my sister decided to think up something to scare us little kids on that night.
During the week they kept telling my little sister and me all kinds of scary tales about how we had better be watching out for witches riding on broomsticks, black cats, ghosts, black bats and skeletons. By Halloween we were really in a scary frame of mind.
A day before Halloween they went out and picked up some old dry cow bones they found in the pasture and brought them home. They hid them under the house and worked out every detail. One would blow out the lamp while the other one slipped outside and threw the bone in the window.
On Halloween night all of us kids were in the room together. All at once the light went out and dry bones came flying in the window. Boy, oh boy, were we scared! You could have heard us screaming and crying a mile away.
Mama and Daddy came running, as usual, to see what was going on. My brother lit the lamp and my sister slipped back inside. Of course, they knew nothing of what had happened. The lamp had just gone off by itself and as far as the cow bones, no one knew anything.
Mama and Daddy finally got us calmed down and told us to get into bed. I crawled into bed and covered my head. I didn’t rest at all and had nightmares all that night.
The next morning my brother and sister confessed with a lot of laughter. My parents never said anything. Maybe they thought it was funny too, but me, I never thought it was funny at all.
