Can you believe it’s already October? The leaves are going to start changing colors. There’s a chilly nip in the air. Mornings are growing darker. Honestly, I’m not ready for cold. I don’t like cold. I wish it was still summer, but you know what? I am excited about October.
October is Halloween. You start to see the decorations come out. They line the shelves at stores, and neighborhood lawns. My family loves Halloween. We do a haunted garage every year. Last year, our theme was Witch Doctors on the Bayou, you can read all about it in my webpost here: Going Down the Bayou. This year’s theme…I’m not allowed to divulge yet, but it’s going to be GREAT. Hopefully we get a lot of trick-or-treaters who will brave the garage. If not, we’ll at least have a nice night around a firepit.
Halloween isn’t the only fun thing in October. October also means Ren Fests and OctoberFests, Apple Fests and Fall Fests. It’s a great time for people to come together at pumpkin patches and corn mazes, cider mills and haunted houses/barns/hayrides/etc. Then, you’ve got all those amusement parks that have fun haunts throughout the month. October also means we celebrate my puppy dog’s birthday.
So, here’s to a great October full of fun activities. Whether you just enjoy one of the fests that I mentioned or you make it your goal to go to all them. May you find the rounded pumpkin at the patch and not get too lost at the corn maze. Lastly, may you enjoy a good scare, a great Día de los Muertos, Happy Halloween, and special time with family.
Happy October everyone!
