Embracing the Halloween Spirit in 2013
The year 2013 was an exciting period for Halloween festivities in our home. Halloween-2013 is a keyword that resonates with numerous memories and adventures. This holiday holds a significant place in our hearts and brings out the enthusiasm in everyone, including the children who watch Halloween-themed movies without fear.
Thrills and Chills: Halloween Movie Marathon
Our kids are so desensitized that they can watch most of the Halloween type movies and not get scared. Among the many films they’ve enjoyed, some notable ones include the classic ‘Chucky’, the entire ‘Halloween’ series, ‘IT’, ‘Nightmare on Elm Street’, and ’13 Ghosts’. There are countless others that are too many to mention. Some of their favorite movies are ‘Beetlejuice’, the ‘Halloween Town Series’, ‘Scooby Doo’, and ‘Adams Family’. We strive to make the holiday fun for the kids, explaining that these are just movies and not reality. Much like the masks we wear for Halloween, the characters and events depicted are all make-believe. They all understand this, even my 3-year-old.
Spooky Fun: Scaring Mom and Dad
As part of their Halloween-2013 fun, the kids attempt to scare my husband and me. As they grow older and craftier, I’m sure they’ll eventually succeed. While movies are a thrilling part of the holiday, other activities are even more exciting.
