Halloween Traditions

img_9153The end of October is a very busy time for our family.  In the span of 6 days, we celebrate Dad and EC’s birthdays, CJ’s adoption day, EB’s adoption day and Halloween!  Lots of special meals, gifts, and decorations.

We have developed some traditions for Halloween.  The past few years we have gone out for an early dinner and then walked the streets with friends for Trick or Treat / Beggar’s Night.

This year’s costumes:

  • EL – Artemis, Greek Godess
  • EB – Pharoah
  • EC – Ninjago (Lego)
  • CJ – Rainbow Dash (My Little Pony)
  • Mom – wore some cat ears
  • Dad – Pirate (fit well with the new beard)

We end the evening sorting and eating candy, and watching “It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown”.  Dad sneaks a few pieces of candy and Mom tells the kids to stop eating so much because it’s almost time for bed.

Each kid ends up with their own stash of candy that ends up getting eaten little by litte – according to the daily allotted amount. The alloted amount is usually 3 a day. The candy stash comes in handy for bribes or threats (depending on the need)
