October 31st, All Hallows Eve, Halloween. How do you celebrate Halloween? Or the question could be - Do you celebrate Halloween? There are many families that do, and also many that do not. Me and mine, we celebrate this holiday to the max!
This holiday is one the most fun nights of the year. Only it doesn't have to be just a one night stand. Start early and have fun with the idea. Every year around the beginning of October the neighborhood scenery begins little by little to change its appearance. You see that house that starts to appear just a little spookier. You know the one I am speaking of - the cobwebs in the windows, the ghoulish characters that spring up from the ground, and the ghostly figures floating in the trees.
October begins the holiday season- Halloween, Thanksgiving, and then Christmas leads to the New Year. The leaves are changing, time to put away the lawn mower, close up the pool and prepare for the winter. October is the time to bring out the ghosts, goblins, witches and scarecrows. October is Halloween time.
Is Halloween just for kids? I should say not! This holiday is celebrated by kids of all ages - from babies to the elderly. Even pets get into the spirit. There are parties all along the block and at the workplace; it is simply a fantasy time for everyone. Not invited to a party this year - then host one. Invite your friends, family, neighbors and enjoy the season.
Decorate your yard, your house and yourself. You can put pumpkins and hay in the yard for starters. Hang ghosts from the trees, or witches flying on brooms. Add eerie lighting, creepy music and you are on your way. Be creative, use a scary theme or a Disney theme, this holiday does not have to be limited to fright effects.
You don't need a party to have an excuse to dress up. More and more individuals are wearing costumes to work just because. Because it is Halloween! Remember playing dress up when you were young and how exciting and fun it was? Reignite those feelings and wear a costume to the door to entertain the neighborhood children.
Trick Or Treat - Smell My Feet - Give Me Something Good To Eat
Brings back good memories doesn't it? Except of course the stomach ache that resulted from attempting to eat 5 pounds of candy in one evening. There is nothing more satisfying than watching the kids come and go in various outfits, their smiles and giggles, some of them terribly shy while others more direct with their requests for treats.
