10/31/16: Trick or Treat

Hi Everyone!!

It’s here, the silliest and most fun holiday of the year!!! Trick or Treat!!!

I hope you are doing something fun today, or did something fun this weekend. My kids have worn costumes on Halloween right into adulthood, and even dress up their dogs. Minnie and Blue are going to be bumble bees again this year!!!

When my kids were little, they would plan their Halloween costumes for months, witches, goblins, nuns, pirates, the Little Mermaid, Ursula the Octopus, Ninja Turtles, Spiderman, Superman, Cat Woman, Wonder Woman, Prince, Michael Jackson—-I think they’ve done it all. And last year one of my daughters went as Me!!! With bracelets on her arms, black jeans and a black turtleneck sweater, black loafers and glasses perched on her head. She looked more like me than I do.

It’s a silly, fun Holiday. One of my daughters went as a matador a few years ago and looked fantastic, and this weekend she was Dorothy in the Wizard of Oz for a Halloween party. When they were little, my husband John went as “Picasso’s Blue Boy” painting, all painted blue by a make-up artist, with a third eye on his forehead. The effect was amazing, and the children all squealed with delight when they saw him and said “Daddy!! You’re a SMURF!!!”

My favorite costume is one I wore a few years ago, and is a whoopee cushion costume. Undignified and very funny. And I don’t think I’m wearing a costume this year. I don’t think most of my children are either.

But whether you wear a costume or not, eat lots of candy, have some fun, and Trick or Treat!!! (All Treat, I hope!!)

love, Danielle

    In 5 days time I will be celebrating my 51st birthday. Last weekend we attended a Supernatural convention in Birmingham and will be doing so again in Blackpool next May. This is the US TV show not seances etc. We dressed up, my daughter & I,(she’s 28 by the way & she encourages my youthful side) we had photos with the cast members too and listened to panels, Halloween parties in the evenings. All in all a brilliant Halloween themed weekend of which this was our third.When we got back we dressed up again to give out the candy and decorated the house accordingly. As I said 51 yrs old body but still a kid at heart. Love to see the effort that little ones make at this time of year. Always makes me smile. Have an awesome day. Happy 5th of November, penny for the guy!xx

    In Hungary, many people don’t celebrate Halloween. But more and more people decorate their home at this time and make pumpkin lights. Some of our friends live in the USA, and they were dressed costumes with their children and made videos. It was good to see how the kids were having fun, and everyone was so nice to them and gave them candy. I think it’s a very funny holiday ? With love, Renata
