I have another friend who creates her own haunted house, and she goes all out with the Spooky.
And then there's the parties...kid parties, office parties, private parties, costume parties...
Some people like it fun, some like it scary, some like it festive, and so on and so forth. I like it kid-friendly. Even if I didn't have kids, I would probably like it kid friendly. I like the family dressing up with a theme idea. I like how excited the children get to select and wear their costume(s). I love going to the pumpkin patch, hay rides, corn mazes, and creating our family of pumpkins for the season. I like decorating the house.
What I don't like is the creepy, scary, yukky part of Halloween. I know, to each his own and some people love it, but as for me, ew, yuk, no way, count me out! We went into the Halloween store this weekend (my children all love this store), and some of the items were just downright creepy (I know, I know, 'tis the season). I really wished that the creepy stuff would have had its own section (there were some pretty 'scary' items placed right next to the children's costumes at our store), but no one seemed to mind but me (people were laughing and playing w/the items like they were nothing, adults with their kids too). When I was a kid I know there would have been nightmares for a week if I'd seen some of those things that were out on display.
Call me a wimp if you want, but for me...this is about as scary as it gets (not even kidding here):
|Making his own scary face to try and fit in...what a card!|
And with that, I'll leave you with my favorite joke of the season:
Where do fashionable ghosts shop for their costumes? Well, at the Bootiques of course!
