Halloween is such a fun time for me as it is when fall really begins and I can break out my favorite boots, sweaters and heavy purses. It is also when we get to play dress up and troll the neighborhood for candy but no Halloween is complete without a Boo fest.
A Boo fest is when we gather around the television with snacks that I will later regret and enjoy all sorts of movies. The list of movies are endless and I was delighted to see that Verizon Fios offers hundreds of movies on demand to make things easier. Add this with the fact that we can record up to 12 shows at once and our Boo fest is going to be endless. ABC family recently announced the shows for their 13 Nights of Halloween and I set the DVR. With busy schedules watching television during the week is almost impossible.
With the Verizon Fios DVR set we can choose from scary or funny but no boo fest is complete without “Charlie Brown's Great Pumpkin” I always watched this as a kid and it delights me that the kids look forward to it every year. Now I can prepare the list of snacks. I recently watched an episode of Halloween Chopped on Demand and got some great ideas for scary and friendly treats. Let's see what I can do with these and a few other vegetables to get the kids excited.
I almost forgot about costumes. As the kids get older, the costumes get scarier. Gone are the days of Disney characters unless you count the scary Elsa. I used Zazzle to purchase some Halloween shirts that should go over very well. My son can wear his to school because the “cool” kids are not wearing costumes but who would not a wear a shirt that says “Don't Look At Me I'm Invisible” and my daughter can wear the witch decor to give out candy. It was very simple to order and we can use these and the loot bags next year (maybe). It is more likely that I will start earlier and let them choose and/or design their own.
Do you host a “Boo Fest”?
