The Skeletons in my Closet

Posted on

They hung around for more than 30 days.  They made passerbys wonder who lived in our house.  What kind of crazies are they?  The ritual to spook up our home for fun, done and gone.  And just like that, the time has come to put our witches, goblins and skeletons back in the closet.  Our favorite holiday was enjoyed to the max.  Our 4 and 6 year olds had partnered up with us to place items in the most frightful location.   This lovely October, we enjoyed a zombie fest with our little ones, a very small Halloween gathering and a frightfully fun Halloween night, in which we spent most of our time scaring the less than 10 trick or treaters we received 🙂   We make the best of it every year.  My kids asked me why I love Halloween so much.  I can still remember as a child the moment that my passion for Halloween begun. I was about 9 and it was a weekend at my dads place, where I got the chance to hang out with my older half siblings.  THEY had the wildest imaginations, and one year, they went to the basement and made their very own haunted house. I was their first guest, I was in awe, amazed at what they created with just junk and items they found down there.  In retrospect, it was like something from Disney… and maybe it really wasn’t but I remember being impacted by that.  From that, their little seed implanted into my brain grew and boom, my passion for Halloween continues to grow over the years.  I share this love with my littles and my husband and I can see the twinkle in their eyes when we unpack our skeletons from the closet.  During the sales after the big day, we stock up in preparation for the next Halloween.  We can’t wait until September of next year so we can start preparing for our frightful delight.
