It's the time of year again when traditions start to be on our minds. And while you don't have to have a holiday to have a tradition, they also tend to go hand in hand. We have our little traditions for our family that I love and want to always have in my life.
I have talked about the reason traditions are important before. They create a sense of belonging. They create a memory to pass down. They create bonds within families.
I love traditions that start and continue through generations. With Halloween there are some traditions that everyone has like Trick-or-Treating. And then there are others that are personal and family traditions. Here are some ideas for your Halloween. (And if you haven't started any, now is the time to start!)
Trick- or -Treat
Family Party - Assign adults to different rooms with doors and let the kids get dressed up and go trick-or-treating
Pick the same dinner for before trick-or-treating (I do a taco soup and cornbread)
Making your own costumes
Creating a spooky (but not scary) ally walk through for guests trick-or-treating
Girls Night Out: Witches Night Out
Anything that you can do together as a family that will create a memory to last a lifetime is what a tradition is.
