Happy Monday & Happy Halloween lovely readers!
I was in the elevator the other day when i heard this conversation between two moms.
Mom A: Oh your daughter is so cute, how old is she?
Mom B: thank you. she is three.
Mom A: what is she dressing up for Halloween?
Mom B: oh we don’t celebrate Halloween.
Mom A: oh really?
Mom B: Yes.
Of course at the point, the elevator stopped
and it was my floor and i HAD to get out.
Needless to say, i wasn’t privy to the remainder of the conversation.
Therefore, i thought i would take it to my blog.
Mr. Pancakes and i aren’t really into Halloween the way we were when we were younger.
Our families were not ones to carve pumpkins and or decorate our homes.
But we would get dressed up and participate in Trick ‘O Treating.
The festivities of the night was always fun.
And the masses of candy we would bring home was always great.
We DON’T know how involved in Halloween we will be as parents, however the conversation between the two moms intrigued me.
Why wouldn’t Mom B allow her child to celebrate Halloween when it’s all around them?
It could be religious or the commercialization of halloween or safety concerns.
Whatever the reasons, this mom and her daughter don’t celebrate Halloween.
But my question is this,
is Mom B doing a disservice to her child by not dressing her up.
The daughter is only three years old so she is too young right now to know any different,
but how about when she gets older and ALL her friends are dressing up and she can’t.
Is that a disservice to her daughter?
Children’s costumes are always so cute anyway.
Plus isn’t Halloween for the kiddies?
What harm is done if Mom B allows her daughter to dress up
and go trick ‘o treating?
I really wish i would have been on that elevator long enough to hear how the conversation eneded. But since i wasn’t, please help me satiate my curiousity by speculating some of Mom B’s reasons.
Is Mom B doing her daughter a disservice by not celebrating Halloween?
Are you celebrating Halloween?
How are you celebrating Halloween?
p.s: i don’t about Mom B but this is something
Team Pancakes can do as part of our Halloween!
