Tomorrow may be Halloween, but it feels and looks more like Christmas outside. I’m hoping it will warm up a bit for the trick or treaters, though I think it’s probably best to bundle up.
Halloween has changed for us over the years, from decorating a couple weeks before and always designing and sewing my son’s costumes, to throwing some decorations together on the 31st and leaving my son’s costumes up to him. I’m not the Halloween scrooge, but since he’s hit high school, it just isn’t a big deal for us any more. However, we do enjoy seeing the little ones dressed up and it’s a good excuse to eat mini chocolate bars. We also like turning on the fireplace and sipping some sort of hot drink while we take turns going to the door. Occasionally, a family needs to warm up and ends up making a pit stop at our house. This year I want to be prepared and I’ve decided to make hot apple cider (with or without alcohol).
