Remember the fun of donning costumes and ringing doorbells for treats as a kid? It was the highlight of the year as a night when running through the neighborhood to get as much candy as possible, except maybe Christmas!
As the evening before All Saints' Day, the name Halloween has roots in the Old English 'hallowed' meaning holy or sanctified. As the eve before the religious day, it was contracted to the more familiar word Hallowe'en.* For me, Halloween harkens the fun fast ride through the holiday season. The best thing is that you can get that trick-or-treat feeling all week long.
Try This: Take a Wickedly Fun Break
Consider being a kid again with doing fun things like carving a pumpkin, dressing up to hand out treats, baking pumpkin cookies, or watching a scary movie? Here are some other ideas to explore all week:
- Read a new book.
- Watch a funny movie.
- Take a walk out in nature.
- Have coffee with a girlfriend.
- Get a manicure, pedicure or both.
- Go out for yogurt.
- Ride a bike.
- Do some gardening.
- Dance to your favorite song.
Get your wicked on for Halloween and then treat yourself all week long to a fun break.
