i think its warmer now, growing up we always had tonnes of snow by halloween (my costume was always made to fit over a snow suite) i also did not grow up in the area we live in now, so im not sure if its just a regional difference or if its actually warmer
Interestingly enough, that was the number one thing I was thinking of as well. We also had more snow by this point, now we're lucky to have a white Christmas. And I live walking distance from the house I grew up in. So I don't think its really a regional thing.
It was totally different. I grew up a few hours north of Timmins, so by this time of year there was always about a foot of snow on the ground (sometimes we'd get a foot of snow on Halloween!)
I'm French-Canadian, so on November 25th we celebrated St. Catherine's day. She was a French nun in Quebec who founded the first school there and would reward the children coming to class by giving them candies. So every year, the tradition is to make these taffy-life molasses treats.
I haven't made them since I was a kid, though. It's pretty sticky and messy. Maybe when Marcos is a bit older.
