This year for Halloween Jordan and I went trick-or-treating with our friends. It was truly a magical evening watching Scarlett and William’s faces light up as they showed off their costumes and gathered candy from house to house. There isn’t much that kids love more than playing dress-up and pretending to be their favorite characters.
The neighborhood we chose to trick or treat in is quite infamous for going all out. I can’t wait to see what they do with Christmas tree lights! Swarms of children and their parents filled the streets, most traveling in groups. I hadn’t experienced a neighborhood quite like this before where the homeowners, instead of waiting for the doorbell, were all sitting on their front porches. One house had a group of guys (most likely roommates) playing live music! I loved how communal the night felt.
I know Halloween is a touchy subject for a lot people, but how many days of the year do you have a chance to mingle with your neighbors?
