I know some people don't like Halloween. That it's just an *American* thing (which it's not really, but that's a whole other discussion). But we do find it a bit of fun and the boys are interested in it. And hubby being of the North American persuasion, means that it gets a look-in in our home.
We get a few trick or treaters around, so we *decorate* the front of the house a bit to let them know they are welcome to knock on the door.
Last year was the first year I relented and let DH take the boys around to a few of the neighbours houses. Luckily they were all very accommodating and the boys had a great time.
But another bonus of Halloween is the opportunity to do some themed crafting with the kids.
Felt bats and pumpkins, ready to go!
