Halloween Thoughts From The Shoppe Gals

Halloween is here and I thought that I would share with you some Halloween stories and thoughts from our Shoppe Gals.

I have to admit that Halloween is one of my most favorite holidays of the year. Not to mention that my Birthday is two days before. That just makes it even more fun!

Enough about me, let's hear from The Shoppe Gals!.

What do you love most about Halloween? 

Decorating the front yard!!  I turn the yard into a giant spider web nest!!!!

What is your favorite Halloween memory? 

My entire cul-da-sac used to meet up and take a group photo of all of the kids dressed up and then we would all go trick-or-treating together.

What do you most look forward to during Halloween?

Seeing the decorations, the costumes and raiding the kids candy for my favorites!!!!

What do you love most about Halloween?

All of it! Decorating. The costumes. Parties. Trick-or-treating with my kiddos and all of our friends.The laughter it brings with all of the silliness and shenanigans. It's such a fun holiday. I just love watching how much my children get into it too. They are so awesome! Also, who can resist all of the little's that come to your door with their sweet little costumes on. They just melt my heart.

What is your favorite Halloween memory?

This is a hard one for me, I really do have so many. I think it has to be one from my childhood though. I must have been about 10-years-old. My Mother was a Jehovah's Witness, so I didn't get to trick-or-treat as a kid. One Halloween I went and dressed up in some of her old-timey clothes, a hat and shoes. I went out alone on our block just before dark and went trick-or-treating by myself. I remember crossing the street all dressed up and feeling so proud of myself. Ha! I went to 5 or 6 houses closest to our house. I had so much fun!

What do you most look forward to during Halloween?

I have to say the costumes and the parties. I started having a Halloween/Birthday party each year since the age of 24. They are always so fun and so different each year. The past 3 years have been the first times that I haven't had one every year. I need to make more new friends here in Apex and change that. ASAP! :)

What do you love most about Halloween?

What I love the most about Halloween is watching old Disney Halloween movies, seeing all the fun costumes and carving pumpkins! 🎃

From our, Shoppe Gal Martha...

What do you love most about Halloween?

Halloween is my favorite holiday! My family goes all out! We decorate our house outside and inside while listening to Halloween songs, and watch Halloween movies all month long. We fully embrace all the spooky, kooky, and festive fun of it from October 1st through Halloween. My favorite part is the afternoon and evening of the 31st. We eat dinner early, and then start getting ready. We like to go all out with hair and makeup to match our costumes. Then we head out as a family to trick or treat together. 

What is your favorite Halloween memory?

My best memories include going to downtown Apex for Trick or Treat on Salem Street all the years since we moved here 11 years ago. October is the best month and Halloween is just so special to my family. 

Happy Halloween from all of The Shoppe Gals at The Doodling Bug. Have a fun and spooky day!
