A Haunting Halloween at Disneyland
For Halloween we spent the first half of the day at Disneyland before returning home to pass out candy to trick or treaters, or rather checking in on our bowl out front, refilling it as necessary. For our visit to the park, I wanted to deviate from the classic orange and black, and opted for a Haunted Mansion inspired look, with a dress similar in color to how some of the ghosts appear inside the Haunted Mansion. We spent the day drifting around New Orleans Square, eating gumbo and beignets, and riding the Haunted Mansion (which is all gussied up with its Nightmare before Christmas overlay) and Mark Twain. Also, despite it being Halloween, New Orleans Square had already received the Christmas treatment!
This was the first year we were actually home on Halloween, in the past we’ve spent the evening at theme parks, and last year we drove around looking at the homes that were decorated for the local decoration contest. This year we felt a need to stay home and pass out candy as we decided to decorate the yard this year, and we actually ended up running out of candy! Is greeting trick or treaters part of your Halloween tradition? Or do you keep the porch light off?
This week I worked to taking down Halloween decor and plan to do a deep clean before hauling in Christmas! Also I need make decisions about my Dapper Day outfit, as that is in a little over a week!

Enchantingly beautiful ensemble. Mint is a magnificent hue on you.
Handing out candy is one of my very favourite elements of October 31st. Despite (or perhaps because of, given that people have had relatively little to even just quasi-safely do in public for almost two years now) the pandemic, we hit a new record for trick-or-treaters here at our current home.
The kids started arriving earlier than usual (by a good hour or more) and continued on until nearly 9 pm. When all was said and done, we got about 118 – which tops our previous record at this address by around five trick-or-treaters. Love that – and am already counting down until we get to do it all over again next year (hopefully with less pandemic concerns than this year and the last).
