I have to tell you, I never really cared about Halloween as an adult. Aside from the welcome excuse to eat my weight in candy, I suppose the holiday lost its appeal once I became too old to trick-or-treat. It wasn’t until I became a mom that I really began to appreciate the spirit of the holiday.
Halloween is more than just costumes and candy, it’s an excuse to visit the pumpkin patch, watch spooky movies, and carve jack-o-lanterns as a family. Halloween is surprisingly, a time of tradition.
As I embark on my 10th (yes, 10th!) year celebrating Halloween as a parent, I’ve rounded up 10 years of Halloween memories from our family to yours!
