I personally am not a fan of the “holiday”. I find it kind of weird, morbid and strange...call me crazy, I know. Even as a child I was not fond of it. Justin on the other hand, never participated in the holiday as a child due to religious reasons.
Now don’t get me wrong, we are not complete party poopers. Instead of focusing on the one day of this wonderful season Mother Nature blesses us with, we choose to focus on the entire fall season.
We have enjoyed apple picking at an organic apple orchard, we have hit the pumpkin patch, carved pumpkins, roasted pumpkin seeds, collected fall leaves and made a fall wreath, played in the leaves and spent a lot of time on the hiking trails. We love this season and enjoy celebrating it. We just choose not to do Halloween in its typical form.
