October 31 is Halloween. I instinctually write this because without fail, come September – the kids ask “WHAT DAY IS HALLOWEEN.” Same time, same place kids – October 31.
What is Halloween to you? To be completely transparent, Halloween has never been a huge hoopla for me. Sure, I put up the fall decorations – but I am more into pretty fall decor rather than spooky Halloween decorations. That’s just me. Also, with my birthday just a few days before – I feel kind of partied out by the time Halloween rolls around.
One thing that I do love is dressing up. I mean, seriously – what other day can you drive down the street or walk into Walgreens and see a grown man dressed as a penguin. There is just something so adolescent and freeing that it just makes me happy.
Over the years we have written about different aspects of the holiday. Here you will find everything that’s been written on Digital Mom Blog about Halloween. Enjoy your holiday, and remember when the kids ask and you know they will ask – Halloween is October 31.
I found this Halloween meme and it’s made me appreciate the holiday so much more when putting this into perspective.
Reasons Why Halloween is the BEST Holiday
- You are not obliged to visit your relatives.
- You are note obliged to get gifts for anyone.
- People will give you candy for absolutely no reason other than HALLOWEEN.
- It’s the only day when it’s socially acceptable to go out in public dressed like a penguin.
Maybe you are the best holiday, Halloween! Happy trick or treating!
