what day do you go easter trick or treating?

around our house, easter trick or treating comes on february 25th, apparently.
while asking booker what we would do on the last day at grandma and papa's house, he answered..."let's have a party." "What kind?", I asked. "Halloween with trick or treating," he said promptly. "We may have a hard time finding Halloween things today, Booker...but what if we have an Easter party and go trick or treating?" "Yyyyeeeaaaayyy! We can go Easter trick or treating, mom! Can we dress up?"
this is promptly where this party conversation stopped (for two seconds) and then picked back up with the menu and activities that would ensue. after rummaging through my parents house, cowboys is what we came up with and both were thoroughly pleased with the results. so dressed as cowboys they trick or treated to all 3 doors at my parents house, in which they filled easter baskets with candy-filled easter eggs then came inside for a little easter ice cream (sherbert) with sprinkles (very important to booker these days!)
what a fun non-holiday activity to kick off a fun holiday...and a great activity to end a fun vacation with grandma and papa!

Yikes, my hat is a little big..well, so is the shirt I am wearing as a coat!
no, no, no, just a sec...can you see a glance of my spider boots!
