Full Disclosure: I love Halloween. It’s my Super Bowl, Fashion Week, Oscar Night, and Mardi Gras all rolled into one. It’s fun, it’s weird, it’s creepy… what more could a mom of four boys ask for?

This year has the added benefit of Halloween being on a Saturday. That’s an entire day for all the usual madness and mayhem and then one to recooperate. I’m so excited it’s like the sugar high has already begun. If you too delight in Halloween night perhaps my list will add to your terrifying traditions. If you find the whole affair frightful but your kids love it, test the dark waters at one of the local events, they are sure to enchant ghouls of all ages.
