Maintain Your Childlike Spirit

Halloween is almost here, and many of us can still remember the thrill of dressing up in our costumes and walking the neighborhoods with our friends trick-or-treating. Though this holiday may not be our favorite anymore or feel the same as it did when we were kids, we can still maintain our childlike spirit through this and other holidays.

Some of us maintain it by taking our own children out for Halloween while others throw costume parties or hand out candy to the excited children who come to their door.

Though collecting candy is the highlight for kids and a concern for many parents, it doesn’t have to be totally unhealthy.

Check out this post from The Official Spark Blog for some healthy ideas.

Watching the Peanuts characters by Charles M. Schulz always brings a smile to my face and gets me in the holiday mood.

Maybe you have a happy memory of Halloween that does the same for you?

  1. Instead of handing out candy my parents dragged the grill out … fired it up and handed out hotdogs. Eventually, parents with kids that were too excited to eat dinner planned their route to finish at our house.

  2. Thanks so much for stopping by Gallivance to read Those Bodacious Baltic Beasties. We really enjoyed the Art Nouveau animals and are happy that you did too. And we really love this post and your ideas on maintaining a childlike spirit. We totally agree!
    All the Best, Terri and James Vance

    • It is always interesting to learn about other places, and hear what is or is not celebrated. Blogging certainly bridges the distance as I see from your blog that you are in South Africa! Thanks for your comments.

  3. My husband and I watched a few episodes of Tales from the Crypt. They are like classic scary fables. Enjoyed it a lot! And then our condo complex fire alarm went off at midnight…booooo πŸ™‚ Hope yours was better!

    • Hi Irene! Wow, that had to be jolting to have the fire alarm go off, especially after watching all those scary shows. We spent most the night handing out candy to about 60 kids who came to the door. It was fun. πŸ™‚
