Ahhhh HALLOWEEN! Well, it used to be my favorite holiday.
I told you the other day I grew up in Oklahoma. (I think it was in the “comment” section).
As a child, I was never allowed to participate in celebrating Halloween, or go Trick-or-Treating. But as I got older and thankfully a bit more rebellious, basically in my teen years, I decided to start celebrating.
I got my own car at 17 and drove down to Oklahoma City with my best friend. We used to go to the local OKLAHOMA CITY radio station THE KATT Haunted Warehouse. Now, I believe, it is the BRICKTOWN HAUNTED WAREHOUSE.
And if you have never been to one, I gotta warn you, you will pee your pants! There is one thing OKIES do well and that is celebrate Halloween, sometimes with class, sometimes not so much… well, a lot of times not so much haha! As many Halloween Parties as I have hosted back in the day, I have to say they have NEVER been classy hahaha!
In the UK, people try to do the Halloween parties, but it is nothing like I am used to. However, I went to a party a couple years ago, I won’t say a lot about it, but it scared me pretty bad! (let’s just say, the “supernatural” made its presence known!!!)
I am pretty sure that Halloween is my adult kids’ favorite holiday too. When they were small, I made sure we had a great time, I would always dress up as a witch and would go door to door with them trick or treating. And as they got a bit older, I still dressed in my witch costume and we would dress up the big front porch all “Halloween” and little kids from the neighborhood would come round. They couldn’t understand how this witch knew their names haha.
And now, here, it is pretty flat. It’s big in Irelend though. So, just being across the water, a short crossing, you would think that it would carry on over here, but sadly, NO.
I hope you all have a HAPPY and SAFE HALLOWEEN.
Thanks for visiting!
