Summer Blog Challenge, Day 36- A Family Holiday Tradition

We are a family who loves Halloween.  Most importantly we love the costume part. This tradition started with my grandparents.  Each Halloween they would host a Halloween costume party in their garage.  All their kids and grand kids would show up in full costume.  We would play musical chairs, and bob for apples.  It was also a potluck, so everyone would bring a creepy yummy concoction.  Some years back, my parents picked up the Halloween torch and now host the annual costume party in their garage.  

The decorating of the garage has become almost as much of an event as the party itself.  Each year my dad and my son try to outdo their spooky decor from the year before.  
We look forward to the party each fall.  In fact, I start planning my costume for the following year the day after Halloween- when everything goes on clearance! ;)

My husband & I's first Halloween together (we had just started dating earlier that month!).  

How cute are my grandparents?  They dress in corresponding costumes every Halloween. Can you guess what they are in the photo to the right? ;)


  1. How fun! Sounds like a great way to spend Halloween each year. Enjoyed seeing the creative costumes everyone was wearing.

  2. Hallowe'en is my favourite too :) We dress up, Trick or Treat and hand out treats at home. I wish we had a party like yours!

  3. Oh my gosh, this is so fun! I'm not a big Halloween person, but I LOVE parties like that :)
