It is that time of year again, when little boys and girls are considering how to best turn themselves into frightful creatures to scare some candy out of their neighbors. What about the adults? What is there to do during the fall and specifically during the Halloween season. After all, if we dress up in creepy clothes and try to take candy from the neighbors, the neighborhood will just think we are odd. Here are three Fall/Halloween traditional activities to take your mind off the fact that if you want candy, you will either have to buy your own, or steal it from a child that you know, and while you could do that, it goes back to that whole “neighborhood thinking we are creepy” thing.
- Pumpkins—I love the fall. The weather is cool enough to wear my sweater collection and boots and scarves rule the landscape. I saw some of you girls cheating back in early September, wearing your knee high boots early and with shorts, for goodness sakes! I digress. One of my favorite traditions is painting/carving the pumpkin for the front porch. Whether you are a traditionalist and favor the triangle shaped eyes and nose pumpkin or prefer to get creative with the many different stencils available, there is something so childlike and innocent about slicing into a fruit shaped like a head with a knife….um, sorry about that, let me try again. There is something about carving pumpkins that transports us back to childhood. This year, I will have that minion pumpkin I saw on Pinterest. I MUST own it! A friend of mine turns it into a party. It is BYOP, (bring your own pumpkin) but she supplies all of the paints, carving tools and stencils. She also serves refreshments, and you just cannot beat that!
I have my October plans made, how about you? May your Halloween be as scary as you can stand it to be! For more entertainment, including movie reviews, celebrity news and more, check out Bearscoopmedia.com and don’t forget to follow me @SheilaSalyers
