No Kids This Halloween? Here’s How to Celebrate.
5 ways to celebrate Halloween without kids and without a party this year
How do you celebrate when you’ve grown out of Halloween party hopping, don’t have any little gremlins to take trick-or-treating, or are an empty-nester trying not to think about the crazy party your college student is attending? Sure there might be an age-appropriate Halloween party to attend, but not all of us love putting together the perfect costume and socializing with masked individuals until all hours of the night. So here are 5 great ways to still make the most of this wickedly fun holiday.
1. Netflix your favorite guilty-pleasure Halloween flick
Or prepare ahead of time and rent something, old-school style. Think Halloween Town, The Addams Family, Edward Scissorhands, Hocus Pocus, or The Nightmare before Christmas. Halloween without kids also means you can choose to watch a true horror film. Try something like House of 1000 Corpses, The Changeling, The Amityville Horror, Pet Sematary, or Poltergeist.
2. Apply a soothing yet terrifying face-mask
Celebrate your Halloween without kids by multi tasking with this amazing Murad face mask; it looks like a costume when you answer the door for trick-or-treaters and is so good for your skin, it’s scary!
3. Relax with a hot fall beverage
4. Light fall scented candles
Being without kids on Halloween means extra relaxation. Create a spooky ambiance by scattering candles around the house and turning down the lights. Choose fall scents like pumpkin spice, apple cinnamon, or candy corn to really set the Halloween mood. Or get crafty and make your own fall candle decorations like these!
5. Enjoy a fun Halloween-themed snack
You don’t need a party or kids to enjoy these fun snacks. Whip up these white chocolate covered strawberry ghosts, black bean pumpkin soup, pumpkin cheesecake truffle mummies, and yummy mummy empanadas for a few fun favorites.
How do you plan on spending this Halloween? Relaxing, trick-or-treating, or dressing up for a costume party?
