Every year when Halloween rolls around do you find yourself torn in two. On the one hand there are many aspects of Halloween that are really fun. Who wouldn’t enjoy a celebration where you get to dress up and get candy? On the other hand do you feel increasingly uncomfortable about how greed driven the event seems to be. So is there a way to keep the fun and turn Halloween around?
As a family why not have fun making Halloween treats to give away to others. On Halloween night put on your costumes and go out together to give your treats away. You might take them to a seniors home, a food bank or to people that work for the community, such as nurses, police, and fire-fighters.
Get a charity collection box and take it with you when you go out trick-or-treating with your children. Invite people to fill the box with their spare change.
How will you celebrate Halloween with your children this year?
