Neither Silas nor I grew up celebrating Halloween. Neither of us regrets that. We didn't really miss the trick or treating or the scary stories. I, for one, screamed and cried in terror during The Shaggy Dog so it's probably a good thing I wasn't allowed to immerse myself in the scariness of Halloween. (Silas, like his brothers, posses the Snider pathological confidence gene. So yeah. He wasn't scared of anything.)
We do really like to dress up, though. So since we've been married we've attended Halloween costume parties. We especially like the concept of going as either historical figures or prominent characters from classic literature. Last year we went as Pierre and Marie Curie. I made Silas's vest and hat and I made my dress from the same pattern as my wedding dress.
How does your family celebrate (or not celebrate) Halloween?
