No other holiday centers around the home quite like Halloween does. It’s a time where treats are shared, imagination is encouraged and lifelong memories and traditions come to life. Even when we’ve reached the age where it’s no longer acceptable to dress up from head to toe in our favorite super hero costumes or accept candy from the neighbors down the street, Halloween still manages to bring out the little kid in us all. Anything and everything is possible on this one magical night of the year, even for your home. Sure you may dress up your home for other occasions like Thanksgiving, New Year’s Eve and Valentine’s Day to name a few, but these holidays simply cannot compare to the fun and fantasy of being home on Halloween.
For one, your home has transformed into a live character of its own with hints of orange and black sprinkled throughout the hallways and candy bowls, not to mention spooky ghosts and black cats hiding around every corner. There’s also the fact that Halloween is centered around neighborhood festivities. The streets are packed with friendly goblins and ghosts, and neighbors open their doors and their homes to all those celebrating the occasion. Lastly, there are those memories that you hold onto tightly, like your first Halloween outing captured on the porch of your home through a lens or memories of your most successful Halloween night with candy scattered and counted throughout the floor of your living room. In any case, Halloween and home go together like peanut butter and jelly. You just can’t have one without the other.
