Last year was my first year really celebrating Halloween.
Growing up we always did things at church like a Fall Festival or Trunk or Treat.
My brothers and me would dress up as biblical characters or we didn't dress up at all.
I've never once Trick or Treated in our neighborhood.
But I don't really mind it. We had fun in our own way.
And I loved spending the time with family, church friends and our good Lord.
Now Halloween isn't much different. But the hubs and me have started a little tradition.
On Halloween night we order in..
Chinese or Pizza..
Pass our candy to our sweet neighbor kids and watch Halloween movies or our favorite TV shows.
(We are those weird people that find a TV series on Netflix and don't watch anything until we've completed all 18 seasons of the show.)
And just enjoy the night.
There won't be any ridiculous over priced costumes you only wear once and throw in the back of your closet. There won't be any scary movies. And there won't be any crazy anxiety that I'm the only weird kid in a Mary costume with a swaddled baby Jesus.
Happy Halloween, ladies!
Stay safe and have fun.
