I will be honest. Halloween has never been my favorite holiday. I like the idea that it's suppose to be a mysterious and magical night. I don't like the fact that it brings out weirdos and creepers. I do enjoy seeing all the costumes and crazy makeup though.
My grandma used to love Halloween but my grandpa passed away early in the morning on Halloween 6 yrs ago. She doesn't do anything for Halloween anymore and that's okay.
I still try to celebrate and do something fun because my grandpa believed that if you loved a holiday, you should still celebrate it even if someone passed on or near that holiday. Sometimes, celebrating or participating in festivities are a way to keep someone's memory alive. :)
My family has also been remembering the advice my grandpa gave us before he passed. He said: DO WHAT YOU WANT TO DO WHILE YOU'RE HERE. DO SOMETHING THAT YOU LOVE AND MAKES YOU HAPPY. DON'T THINK YOU CAN'T DO IT. JUST TRY. EVEN IF YOU DON'T SUCCEED YOU AT LEAST KNOW YOU TRIED. IF YOUR NOT HAPPY, DO SOMETHING THAT MAKES YOU HAPPY.
I hope all of you have a fun wonderful night & I hope you love every minute of it but don't forget there is still magic in life even when it isn't Halloween.
Be safe & have fun! :)
