Hallowe'en Night is Fun!

I'm dressed up to look like Ray Charles. Chance is wearing his Boo! handkerchief.
Hi. I'm Charles the Bear Cub. You know me. I live on Sparkle Road with my buddy,  Grandpa James. He's really old. He was the second Canadian to get off Noah's Ark, you know.

 Oh. Wait! Chance lives with us, too. He's a newborn cubby someone left in a basket on our doorstep. He's a wee little thing. I look after Chance, too. He's a handful!
Coffee Crisps are yummy and that's one of the four food groups in Canada's Food Guide.

Tonight is Hallowe'en. It is the scariest night of the year. We get to dress up in costumes and visit our friends and neighbours. I'm wearing sunglasses. I'm dressed up to look like Ray Charles. Chance is so newborn he just gets to wear his Boo! handkerchief around his neck. Chance doesn't even have any teeth, yet. I'll have to help him eat it all up! Grandpa James is disguised as a grumpy old man.
When we eat Smarties we have to eat the red ones last. It's one of the rules about Smarties.

Okay, this is how to Trick-or-Treat. We go to the door and ring the doorbell. Then we holler,
Trick or treat,
Smell my feet,
Give me something
Good to eat!

The people guess who we are. They give us good things to eat like Smarties. Some people gave us Aero bars and Coffee Crisps. We got root beer and Kinder Surprise Eggs!
Know what the surprise is?  Inside the chocolate there's a toy!

 Oh. Wait! Did you hear that? Grandpa James is hollering, "Where are my handsome bear cubs? Where are my Sons of Windsor? Where are my Princes of Ontario? That's me! Charles! That's Chance! We're handsome bear cubs. We're Sons of Windsor and Princes of Ontario! We gotta go find Grandpa James so we can get our ears tickled and our noses kissed.

This is me, Charles the Bear Cub saying, "Be good citizens. Be kind to friends and neighbours. Then you can eat Smarties and drink root beer. Oh! Wait! Come over to our house and play with us! We can Trick-or-Treat together! Okay! Over and out!"
