It will be Halloween this week. How do you prepare? Last year my wife took our children to the theatre in town, which was showing Paranorman and they had a great time. I was working away. This year though, I'll be home. Not sure what we'll do yet. It would be nice to do something special for it.
On Saturday, we're having some friends over again to have some food and go see a fireworks display at my son's school. The display is usually very good, so I'll be looking forward to that. We bought some glow-sticks from B&M today too, we traditionally wear glow-sticks around our necks and have ones that are also whistles that you blow to make a noise. I'm planning on making a chilli for the food, my wife enjoyed it the last time I did this and we made baked potatoes so for the kids that don't like chilli they can have cheese, coleslaw or beans.
I like this time of year. The clocks have gone back today, which means the mornings are lighter and the nights are darker but at least today we got an extra hour. I really needed it after the boys day out yesterday, it was great but very tiring on the legs! I feel so old!
