Happy Happy Halloween!

I love Halloween because it really feels like the “fall” season when it is here.  I love being able to decorate for it, and I love the traditions that come with it.

Last year, Halloween wasn’t very much like Halloween because I was in London training to work on the cruise line.  I remember the rest of the trainees being very intrigued by the American traditions for Halloween, while I was very intrigued with the non-American traditions they had for Halloween.

We did not dress up during training, but we were able to see some kids running around that evening wearing all sorts of outfits!  If I remember correctly, the highlight of our day was heading to Poundland, the British version of the Dollar Store for some snacks to keep us awake while studying.

Brian and I have had a couple of Halloween’s together, but we have never done a couple costume.  Maybe next year!

Lara Croft:  Tomb Raider, and Bleeker from Juno:

This year, I will be celebrating Halloween with a work party and by passing out candy to the neighborhood kids.  For the work party, they requested that I bring ants on a log and apples.  I thought those were pretty specific requests, but nonetheless, I made the ants on a log with joy, chopped the apples into slices and made some Pumpkin Cheesecake Dip to go along side the apples.

Growing up, I remember my mom making a giant pot of chili on several Halloween nights.  This year, with the weather in the 40s and 50s a warm pot of chili not only brings back childhood memories, but is very weather appropriate!  Brian and I will be enjoying this warm meal tonight for sure 🙂

I can’t wait to pass out candy tonight, I just have to find a witches hat to wear while I pass out the treats!

What are some of your Halloween traditions?
