Halloween is always such a fun time of the year. As a child I counted the days until October 31st. Halloween always promised a night of fun with friends that included an amazing costume (at least I thought so) and loads of candy. What more could a child want?
My enthusiasm for Halloween waned as I grew older. In my post college years there were a handful of parties, but they always seemed to annoy me. Dressing up wasn't fun anymore. Going to a costume party in my twenties seemed more like work. Pass me a drink already...do I seriously need to be a cat for yet another year! Where are the whiskers, tail, leggings and black turtleneck? But...times change.
It was only after having my wonderful little girl that I rediscovered my love for fall and for Halloween. Every fall festival and pumpkin patch was a perfect excuse for a weekend trip to the country and yet another photo op. Clearly I was falling in love with the season. Maybe this is yet another example of kids keeping adults young.
As the years pass and my daughter celebrates her 8th Halloween, I do find that the rules change. Gone are the costumes I want and in are the costumes she wants (shudder). I spoke with some of my friends and asked "What are the rules for Halloween?"
Here are some great tips for your next Halloween adventure.
Have a Safe and Happy Halloween!
