HALLOWEEN CELEBRATIONS FAMILY TRADITIONS AND HAUNTED HOUSES
Halloween is a big deal in my family, especially for the kids. My daughter, Addysen, loves spending time with her cousins and participating in Halloween activities. There’s a park near us where a pumpkin painting event is held, and the kids get excited for it every year. They each choose a pumpkin and paint it any color they want. They’ve made some pretty spectacular creations over the years. While they love pumpkin painting, their favorite Halloween activity is, of course, trick-or-treating. And in our family, we put a little twist on the Halloween tradition. To add a little extra fun to trick-or- treating, one of us adults makes a hayride for the kids to ride on while they go door-to-door.
This year, Addysen has decided to be Dorothy from “The Wizard of Oz” and is excited for the big night. Since my childhood, Halloween has always been exciting. I love the costumes, decorations, scary movies, and the transition of the seasons. The spooky aspect of Halloween is one of my favorite parts of the holiday, and it seems that Addysen feels the same way. She’s never been to a haunted house, but she told me that this is her year — she’s finally going to go to a haunted house. Over by Hydra Park, they set up a pumpkin patch and hayrides and sell candy apples and other fall treats. At night, they feature a haunted corn maze. We were there
one evening and happened to catch them as they were setting up the maze, and that sparked Addysen’s interest. Addysen saw how spooky it was, and she’s still determined to go. Getting scared is one of the great things about Halloween. When I was a kid, I always made an effort to go to every haunted house or corn maze that I could. I liked being scared and seeing all the work that went into the decorations and costumes. Now I look forward to all the Halloween stores that open up around town. Our family likes to head to the different stores and check out all the cool Halloween decor and the costumes they have. The biggest pleasure I get this time of year is spending time with my family. Whether it’s Addysen and all her cousins painting pumpkins, watching all the kids fill up their candy bags on Halloween night, or seeing so many fantastic costumes, it’s always a fun time of year. No matter what your tradition is, I hope that all of you have a Happy Halloween!
