I don’t know about you lovely readers, but Halloween has never been on the top of my list for celebrations. This might sound mean but for the last 15 years, I have never given out one morsel of candy on Halloween. My porch light is off and I chill for the night. So if you’re like me and you ain’t feeling Halloween, here are five fun alternatives.
1 – Turn your tricks into treats. Assemble a bag of treats and deliver to your neighbors or family members. And the treats don’t have to be Halloween themed. How about a cold weather kit with an ice scraper, flash light, energy bar, cold weather tech gloves, cough drops, etc.
2 – Pumpkins are for more than lattes and pies. Host a Pumpkin Decorating party. This activity works for everyone in the family as pumpkins come in all sizes. Lots of things to use for decorating including paint, markers, paper, stencil or glitter
3 – Don’t want to venture out? Stay in and chill watching family oriented movies. One of my all-time favorites is the The Good Witch on The Hallmark Channel. These movies convey so many positive messages for kids and adults alike. Start from the beginning and catch all 7 movies
4 – With Thanksgiving right around the corner, spend the evening decorating your home for the Fall season or the Thanksgiving holiday. This activity is another good one for the whole family. You will have weeks to enjoy before it is time to start Christmas decorating
5 – If your kids must have some treats and want to dress-up, take advantage of events hosted by your local mall. The kids can still get their sweet tooth soothed and maybe you can snag a cute must have like a plaid shirt or quilted vest.
Halloween night doesn’t have to be a complete bummer. Enjoy it and maybe start some new family traditions!
