Why I love Halloween

Honestly have you ever seen such a cuter ketchup packet?

Just last like last year, I am so hyped and excited. I really spent most of the day cheesing. The only difference was last year I cried my eyes out, tears of joy, because it was my son’s first Halloween. I know, corny right?!

Harrison’s First Halloween 

Listen, I grew up in a Haitian household where I was unable to celebrate Halloween. I spent most Halloween nights in my bedroom staring outside my window watching the kids walk around trick or treating. The worse part was when they rang the door bell, sometimes my parents would send me down to open the door, because I was the oldest of three, and hand out candy (smh yes torture I know). Other times my mom would open the door hand out candy, tell the kids how cute they looked in their costumes, and then tell us how horrible it was to celebrate Halloween.

My parents, and most people who grew up in the Caribbean, do not like to participate in Halloween festivities, mostly because of religious reasons and superstition. Some of them believe that Halloween is like devil worshipping. Even though I understand their logic behind it I choose to embrace the fun, creative, and festive side of Halloween.

So just like my college days I go out and find a silly costume and have a fun time with my best friend, my husband. This year he picked out a great theme for us.

PS: I spent $30 on our costumes on AMAZON.
