This year is our first year back in an apartment and we’re not expecting any trick-or-treaters at our door, so instead we’re going to go scare some of our friend’s neighborhood kids! It’s all in good fun, but from the costume above you can see why some little ones might be a bit frightened. My husband is itching to get his scare on and he’s excited that we have a friend who’ll let him be scary for the evening. However, our friend hands out full-sized candy bars and last year they had 120 trick-or-treaters. That’s a lot of kids and my guess is they come in streams with barely any downtime. Mr. LH will have trouble scaring the kids if there’s barely a break between groups. The allure of the unexpected will be blown.
I’m looking forward to seeing so many children dressed up, as our last Halloween at our rental house was sort of bleak; we barely had 25 kids show up. The nice part about setting up camp at our friend’s house is it’s FREE for us. It’s an inexpensive way to enjoy Halloween and we don’t have to shell out money for the treats. Of course, as good friends we’re preparing an early dinner for them as our “thank you” for letting us enjoy Halloween on someone else’s porch.
Enjoy your Halloween and don’t forget to make sure you carry a light of some sort and only visit homes with their porch lights on.
