Best Witches from the team at GoPrime Mortgage!
How do you and your family and friends celebrate today’s spooky holiday? You may already have plans for trick or treating (maybe you even went early!), but there are many other fun things for you to do to celebrate the day! Here are some ideas you can throw together and make today fun for friends or family of all ages.
Cook up a Spooky Dinner
You don’t have to go too far outside the box to make a spooky meal. How about spaghetti and eyeballs? Add an olive to each meatball for an extra creepy eyeball look. Or you can make mummy hotdogs by wrapping sausages with crescent roll dough sliced into “bandages.” If you want something more
‘professional chef’ quality, try your hand at pumpkin ravioli. Here are 100 fun and tasty Halloween snack ideas.
Watch Halloween-Themed Flicks
Once trick or treating is wrapped up in your area, it’s time to snuggle down with seasonal movie. For the littles who have to go to school in the morning, choose a fun, family Halloween-themed movie such as:
For adults who can stay up well past nightfall, don’t be afraid to break out the big scares. Choose from the scariest movies on this list.
Hand Out Candy with Some Added Flair
Do you get a lot of kids in your neighborhood? If so, why not make trick or treating an even more exciting event for them? Decorate the exterior of your home with black lights, a fog machine, and scary sound effects and dress up to give out candy. Make some hot cider or light up a bonfire at the foot of your driveway if it gets chilly on Halloween night! When the festivities are interactive, it can be more fun for people of all ages.
Light a Candle for Your Ancestors
Many cultures around the world honor the time around Halloween as a feast for the ancestors. In Mexico, this is celebrated as Día de los Muertos, or The Day of The Dead. In ancient Ireland, it was marked as Samhain or Summer’s End. To honor your ancestors, light a candle for them. Gather around with your friends and family and share stories of those who have passed on to keep their memories alive. When you’re serving your meal, set a place at the table for those no longer with you.
My team and I at GoPrime Mortgage in West Asheville wish you and yours a safe, spooky, and happy Halloween!
