Halloween Fun!

I have always enjoyed Halloween. We live in a great neighborhood - the roads are windy and it’s pretty dark so it has always attracted a lot of Trick or Treaters. But, fast forward to 1998 when Marc and Andrea purchased my family home. Yes, this house… and bam! It went to a whole new level!

 The Halloween House 2017!

And the display only became more elaborate every year - with moving ghouls and sound effects. When you say Halloween House everyone knows what house it is. Here’s a clip from 2017.

Halloween in the Hood is where it’s at!

So do you know about Ghosting or Booing?

In the days and weeks leading up to Halloween you fill bags with fun treats and a bit of candy then go to your friends homes - bang on the door and run away.

The idea being your friends will wonder who ghosted them!

Nothing better than hearing a bang on the door - running to open it - and trying to figure out by voice or by car who it is!

It makes me so deeply happy to see how excited it makes my son!
