Trick or Treat!
It's that time of year again, so remember to be good, and you can always phone home if you get into trouble!
sometimes even last minute.
Times have changed a lot. When my kids were little their first Halloween experience was at a Mall going store to store. It seemed the safest thing to do at the time. Another year when they were still pretty young we had an afternoon costume party and invited friends & parents. A pinata for the kids ensured that everyone had great fun and got some treats. Party games, apple cider and some healthy snacks made this even far more enjoyable than going door to door.
These past few years very few kids even come to our door even though we decorate & have a sign. Our city has created so many rules that they've taken the fun out of it, so lots of people go to other nearby towns. However, safety is a priority when it concerns kids, and there are many ways to have fun on Halloween besides trick or treating at night. One third of the fun is dressing up, one third is getting candy, the other third is doing it together and seeing all the other costumes. How many ways can you have fun with that?
What are your Halloween traditions? Are you making costumes, going to a party or doing something fun?
