Confession: Halloween is a least favorite holiday in our house. Dave and I don’t get particularly excited about costumes (I don’t even remember the last time I dressed up!), and even now that we have Charlie, we don’t want to make Halloween candy a big deal in case he doesn’t grow out of his food allergies.
Charlie is a little young for trick or treating anyway, so our Halloween plans so far consist of the following:
- Our traditional dinner on Halloween night (though this year, it will be Whole30 compliant, and we will sorely miss our usual cornbread side!)
- Taking Charlie to the Halloween-themed storytime at our library in his costume
- Attending an annual pumpkin carving party our friends are hosting
Maybe this amount of celebration is perfectly appropriate for a one-year-old, but I feel a little stuck on if there’s anything else we should start doing, so I want to turn to you! Do you have any favorite Halloween traditions that you partake in now, or that you remember from growing up? I’d love to hear them!
