Same thing I do every Halloween - take my kids for a spin around the neighborhood collecting candy, then once they're back home and in bed I will relax with a good horror movie and some cold beers.
My daughter is totally in to Halloween! Just yesterday I ran down to the dollar store with her and she bought a plastic pumpkin, a spooky owl, a skull cup, and a fuzzy spider to decorate with! She cracks me up!
Schools don't allow Halloween celebrations any more here. When I was growing up, it was an annual tradition to roll out tables of orange sprinkled cupcakes, bowls of candy corn, candy apples, etc. Teachers would make a huge deal out of it. Now, it's called Favorite Book Character Day.
When my children were smaller, I used to buy them costumes and parade them around the village in a annual trick-or-treat-athon. This year we are most likely going to stay home, watch scary movies, and maybe make spooky finger foods and festive sweets.
My sons (age 6 and 11) are totally into it too. Just yesterday I took the 6 year old with me to Walgreens and I couldn't get him out of the Halloween aisle until he'd tried out all the musical novelties and looked at every decoration and mask!!
Haha! I love Walgreens too! I think it's funny that my daughter is so in to it because ever since she was little, her schools have never celebrated it. She just naturally loves it!
We take the kids trick-or-treating and sit around a bonfire weather permitting. We decorate the house a week or so before and usually have a party on or the weekend before Halloween night. It's my birthday also, so we get to have cake and everything as well.
With parties we have a lot of Halloween themed food, sometimes we tell ghost stories, we listen to a lot of great music. Halloween is my favorite - it's always a good time
