So last night was the first Halloween in my new home. Halloween was never a really big thing with my parents. In fact for many years we just turned off the lights and actually turned off the doorbell also.
Since we are in a new home in a new community I decided I wanted to be a part of the festivities. So my wife and i actually went and got some decorations for the house. Pretty modest stuff really, just a plastic jack -o - lantern and a hanging plastic gargoyle. Total price for both was about $15. We also went and bought chocolates and candies. From now on I will do all my halloween shopping on the day of. We bought just under $40 dollars worth. At the time t seemed like a lot but it actually was all gone pretty fast. I think the hand fulls i gave out were too big. Next year i will give smaller amounts so it can last longer.
Overall it was a lot of fun.
