When my kids were younger, Halloween was one of the exciting holidays. Candy was definitely one of the reasons, but the dressing up and the “scary” part were as important to the general excitement.
Getting together with neighbors and friends is one of the reasons I like this holiday. The neighbors decorate their houses, some scarier than others (I am sure you know what I am talking about) and we walk around looking at them and chatting. When the kids were younger, we would get together with the neighbors and “trick or treat” together in the neighborhood. Always met some new neighbors or got to meet ones we haven’t seen in a while. When the kids got older, we would hangout and handout candy to the younger crowd. The costumes kept changing but the neighborhood feeling and excitement remained the same.
We have so many photos of the kids in costumes. When they were younger it was Pooh and other childhood book characters.
Some years it was all about super hero characters, other years it was scary masks and sometimes just being creative and funny.
Here, at Light Affection, for Halloween we replaced some of our Night Light inserts with these skull ones to set the “mood” during this exciting night.
Happy & Scary Halloween to you all!
