So October may be my favorite month, but Halloween has to be my least favorite holiday… why? Because I am the biggest scaredy cat known to man. Just ask any of my friends or family. Scary movies? No. Creepy costumes? No. Haunted houses? NO. I can’t do anything scary or I will be sleeping with my lights on for weeks. So what is an October baby to do to enjoy this holiday?
Here’s ways I enjoy the holiday season without the scariness!
- Pumpkin Patches – No matter how old I get I will always be a sucker for a good pumpkin patch. These pictures were taken at the Boone Hall Plantation Pumpkin Patch! They even have “fright nights” but of course you wouldn’t catch me dead there after dark.
- Hocus Pocus – No sane child of the 90’s doesn’t LOVE this movie. I could watch it everyday if possible. I may or may not be guilty of watching this even in the summer time. No shame.
- Family Traditions – This has to be my favorite part of the season. Every year since I was born, my family takes a trip to Branson, Missouri to Silver Dollar City. It makes for a great few days in a beautiful place with amazing food, fun roller coasters, AND nothing scary in sight! In fact when we make the trip they are already transitioning to Christmas decorations. The best part? The long weekend spent with family, because no matter what holiday it may be, every holiday is better with family by your side.
So whether you love the thrills and scares that come with the Halloween season, or you’re a Halloweenie like me, I hope you all have a Happy Halloween!
