Believe it or not, my favorite Halloween memory was the year I didn’t go door to door to load up on treats. It was the year that I, my sister and a friend, dressed up as the Three Musketeers. (All of us read voraciously.) We were nine or ten, one foot still in the childhood world of pretend but also growing up and delighted to be taking on the role of the gallant, swash-buckling heroes of old France. Never mind we were girls; the three Musketeers were some of our favorite literary characters. We had capes and fake swords and boots; the hats were wonderful, complete with flowing feathers and wide brims. We went to a costume party and had a great time. We didn’t even mind not going door-to-door, gathering treats!
