So I’ve been waiting to write this blog post ALL month! I love Halloween but I don’t know if I love it as much as Kim. It is Kim’s FAVORITE holiday, it’s also probably why she loves the color orange so much. We even threw her a surprise Halloween themed birthday party last year. We were all in costume, the house was entirely decorated with skeletons, black cats, ghosts, pumpkins, spider cupcakes and we even had fun Halloween temporary tattoos!
Despite the Celtic festival from which Halloween originated, it is a holiday that we ALL, or at least everyone, regardless of age, should have fun dressing up! Trick or treating can be left for the kiddos but hey, if you even look a bit younger for your age like me, why not get some free candy from the neighbors too! Every year, it seems as though everyone scrambles to try and find a costume. Sometimes I wonder what the big deal is, but once I see such a variety of unique costumes that people come up with I’m amazed and inspired for the coming year. I didn’t grow up in an American family, but luckily Halloween was one of the few American cultural activities I did participate in every year. In previous years I have been: Minnie Mouse, a clown, a pumpkin, a witch, an American Indian, a princess (mom made that costume that year :)), a french maid, a boxer (not the dog), an 80’s girl, salt and pepper shakers (I was salt), and this year…I will be a nurse :) Halloween is a day, or even a weekend like this year, that gives us the opportunity to go wild and dress in something you never would otherwise. So be creative!
So you must be wondering why I decided to title the post “Boo or Bah?”. Well if you take a look at the photo below, I don’t think I have to explain. Once I saw this photo Kim took, I knew I had to somehow incorporate Baaah into the title. The mom of these 2 ADORABLE boys dresses them up every year and has Kim come out to their home to capture the kid’s one of kind costumes. So this year while everyone else might be screaming “Boo!”, these 2 boys will be saying “Baaah, Baaah”! No matter what phrase you choose to go with while running up to each doorstep this Halloween, remember to be safe, have fun and make sure you get a lot of CANDY!!!
