~~~~~~ Create Your Own Personalized Halloween Traditions ~~~~~~~~
Celebrate the ‘Day of the Dead’ – Mexico style
Honor friends and family who have passed on to the other side. Host a special dinner and set a place for departed loved ones at the table. Light a candle at their seated place of honor and include framed photos. During dinner, share stories about all of the wonderful memories of your deceased loved ones.
Reach Out as a Volunteer to Help Others Enjoy the Holiday
Nursing homes appreciate volunteers to help out with holiday festivities, as do charities with fund raising events. Spend Halloween spreading the spirit of the season with others and make a difference in your community.
Gather Some Friends and Dance in the Moonlight
It’s not a full moon this Halloween, but Lady Luna will still shine bright in her first quarter. Let your hair down, light a candle, put on some music and dance in the moonlight. Need I say more? Let your inner wild child come out and play!
Explore the Supernatural World
Turn out the lights, light a candle and curl up on the sofa to listen to paranormal interviews on the Explore Your Spirit Show with fascinating guests including: Mary Ann Winkowski (on whom the tv show Ghost Whisperer is based on) Ghost Whisperer and Dr. Bob Curran on Werewolves and Brad Steiger on Real Vampires and coming on Friday, October 29th, an inteview with Dr. Bob Curran on Dark Fairies.
Give a gift to a newly married couple who is setting up their new home. Help them enjoy their first Halloween in their new home together, with a personalized pumpkin created in poly resin which will last for years. The pumpkins can be personalized with any name, up to 9 characters. Have the couple’s last name personalized on the pumpkin creating something they’ll enjoy for many years to come. Continue the tradition as each new child is born, creating a family of pumpkins one by one with the children’s names.
