Halloween is a day that’s looked forward to with anticipation every year by children and adults alike because it’s an opportunity for almost everyone to dress up as their favorite movie, cartoon or fictional character and have fun all day long. The origins of Halloween (all hallows eve) go back centuries and this day is observed in the United States on October 31st every year.
What To Do On Halloween?
If you’re like most people who celebrate Halloween in Orange County California you’re thinking about having a Halloween party; if you haven’t had your own Halloween party before or are searching for Halloween party planning tips you should follow this simple checklist:
- Invitations – Send the invitations on Facebook (or physically) at least two weeks prior to Halloween. This will give your guests plenty of time to make plans so they can attend your party.
- Adults rule – If your Halloween party is for children, make sure that your party has plenty of adults to supervise at the party. When you mix kids with sugar, there will be a lot of very excited kids who want to have fun at your party and we all know what kind of trouble that can lead to.
- Cameras – Make sure that you keep your phone or digital camera handy to take pictures of guests as they show up at your party. If you’re so inclined, keep some photo paper in the printer so you can upload and print the pictures for them when they leave the party.
- Backup plan – Since October 31st sometimes comes with rain in Orange County California it’s a good idea to always have a backup plan. An idea that some families have had is renting an outdoor inflatable theater screen, projector and pavilion while making hot chocolate & coffee outside. This will allow you to enjoy the fresh air outside and greet those daring enough to still go trick-or-treating with a nice hot beverage.
Have Fun And Stay Safe
Remember to stay safe this Halloween, especially if you plan on drinking alcoholic beverages! The primary cause of death for kids on Halloween are cars who cannot see them. For adults, it is drunk drivers speeding the wrong way. Statistically, this happens most often in the #1 or fast lane when there are no cars in front of you.
