Halloween has always been my favorite holiday, even better then Christmas. Back in the day, everyone had homemade costumes.
My mom was so creative, she could take a little of this and some of that and all of a sudden I had the coolest costume. She would make paper mache masks and then paint them. Mom was amazing. I always had the best costumes in the neighborhood.
Back in the day we were encouraged to wear our costumes to school. Then that night we would hit every house in a six block radius.
Trick or treating with a pillow case and great friends it didn’t get much better then that. Then I would go home and dump my loot onto the kitchen table.
My old man inspected the candy, before I was allowed to eat any (wink, wink) ….. it was just his excuse to take some of the best candy.
Today Halloween is the second biggest holiday, next to the Christmas season. It also happens to be just as much for grown ups as for kids.
Almost all the costumes today are bought in stores and there is a bigger and better assortment of candy. Haunted houses and adult parties are super big and can be real scary. I almost forgot the Monster Ball Bash.
Balloons by Absolute Value has designed special Halloween centerpieces, balloon sculptures and the coolest spider balloon drop ever. See more Halloween centerpieces under the centerpiece tab on my website. Happy Halloween
