The way I see it, the excitement of Halloween follows a bell curve.
When you’re a baby… you don’t know what’s going on, but it’s about to get fun. OK.
When you’re a kid, you dress up and get candy. Heck yeah!
When you’re a young adult, you dress up, go to parties and get drunk. I could do without, but I understand it’s awesome for many.
When you have kids, you get to dress up with your family. Double the people, double the fun. This is the best.
When your kids get older, they go on without you. You’re stuck distributing. It’s all downhill from there.
One of the best things about social media is sharing cute family Halloween costumes, whether you’re a parent or not (my case). I can’t help but think it’s the pinnacle Halloween experience.
To get AND give candy with your mini me? I know it must be tiring, and it’s probably a pain to find and get into the costumes.
But there is no arguing: The results are ridiculously adorable. Just look at these rockin’ fams.
