In fact, Halloween is a great excuse for kids and adults to stuff themselves silly with all sorts of sugary delights. Even if you're not that interested in candy, you might be compelled to shut off the lights and put on your favorite scary movie. Either way, if you're getting a full night's sleep on Halloween, you're doing something wrong.
If you're one of those people who can't contain your excitement about the holiday any longer, go ahead and start planning now. You'd might as well make yourself happy. There's more than enough to be done that you can easily find spooky projects to keep busy until October 31 rolls around, whether you're just planning on freaking yourself out with a spooky film or taking the kids out for trick-or-treating. Help your little one create that perfect DIY costume or head into the kitchen and start preparing those famous Halloween cookies!
You can find chocolate strawberries that have been spruced up to suit the season. These jumbo-sized pieces of fruit are hand-dipped and intricately covered with either brown and orange candies or done up to look like jack-o-lanterns. You probably aren't going to want to give these out at the door - heck, you'll have a hard enough time sharing them with members of your own family. They're a great way to get into the Halloween spirit and a unique treat that's sure to be a hit in your household.
Caramel apples are also perfect for this time of year. The weather is starting to cool down and apples are in season right now, so you might as well take advantage and stock up on them right now. They're a perennial favorite that will be sure to please every member of the family. Caramel apples can be pretty heavy, though, so you may want to share with someone.
If Halloween is one of your favorite holidays, you probably already have an idea of what you'd like to do, and there's no reason you can't go ahead and begin that process now. It'll make the countdown that much more bearable.
