Halloween rocks. It’s a wonderful holiday for kids and families. Here are three reasons why I love Halloween:
1. It’s a chance for kids to be creative. Costumes, masks, make-up, capes, hats, swords. It’s a chance to be a little different. Or be Justin Bieber. Whatever the creation, it’s a chance for kids to use their imaginations and maybe push the envelope.
2. It connects kids and families to their community. In our modern day world where we are losing connections and trust, trick-or-treating on Halloween night helps to build back a little faith in our connections, one Snickers at a time.
3. It helps kids embrace their fears. Sure, Halloween exposes the dark side. But death is part of life. And a little scary–bats, tombstones, spiders, witches, ghouls, skeletons, zombies, goblins–is a little fun. By the way, what the heck is a goblin anyways?
