Halloween Spirit

I’m desperately trying to get into it this year, but things just don’t feel the same with all that’s going on. It also seems that trick or treating is becoming more and more a thing of the past. Last year, we had ONE trick or treater. One. We go all out too – zombie graveyard, the whole nine yards. Halloween has always been my favorite holiday, though, so I’ll be sure to celebrate one way or the other. This year, I think I’m going camping which I think will be really fun and hopefully even a little spooky! ๐Ÿ˜‰

  1. CAMPING? It wouldn’t be at Crystal Lake by chance? ๐Ÿ˜‰

    It has been that way over here too…..no one goes Trick or Treating any more. And I admit I pulled my boys away from it when they were young. I just felt it wasn’t safe for them and focused on being apart of my mothers scary scene and giving out the best candy. My moms house was always known for being the spookiest on the block. So my sons and my nephew would be apart of the little scenes to scare the kids when they would come up.
    And we would always have good food and just enjoyed the night.
    But when everyone moved away I focused on my house but our driveway at that time was so long…..and our houses were on a few acres a lot….and our roads were rural so there were no sidewalks and no street lights….so we would get just a few daring souls arriving by car. Now we live on a hill and we get absolutely no one. So this year I am just focusing on a seasonal theme. Fall leaves….fall treas….uncarved Cinderalla pumpkins stacked on the porch. I spent a whole day looking for those things. I still am looking for a grey blueish one. I also found this cute simple Halloween garland at Micheals that I will string. Of course I will buy the best candy incase a few youngsters trickle by….but last year I did give my housekeeper a large cauldron full of candy to take home to her kids. Out of sight out of mind kind of thing ๐Ÿ˜‰ The thing is….our neighborhood website has a map of all houses that are going to give Candy out and still we get VERY few. Which is why the lucky souls hiking our driveway get 5lbs of candy each :D. ha!

    Anyhow……I pretty much just decorate because it makes me happy.

    1. Shoot I’d gladly hike up to your place – for the candy and just to see the gorgeous decorations! Oh and no Crystal Lake for me, no way! Haha! If it cools down anytime soon we’ll be headed to the hills though!
