I don’t really get into holidays. As a matter of fact, holidays often trigger my anxiety and cause me to have panic attacks. Not very much fun, and not something I look forward to. So for pretty much any year, I stay holed up on any holiday and celebrate my own way (alone or with close family).
Halloween is a little different this year tho…
My 4 year old daughter is really into the Halloween spirit! She’s excited about the concept and idea of Halloween, giggles over pumpkin painting and carving, dances and prances in her Halloween costume, and is motivated by every party and event I can get us to!
It’s really started to get me into the Halloween spirit. I am actually enjoying myself this year.
We’ve got a couple of events to go to this week before Halloween, a big pumpkin to carve, and then on Halloween Night, my daughter is gonna help me hand out candy (I simply don’t feel comfortable walking alone in the dark with a small child). This is proving to be the best Halloween in years!
