I believe that any holiday is an excuse to celebrate and Halloween is one of my very favourite occasions for enjoying some family fun. Carving pumpkins, making decorations, choosing the perfect treat for trick-or-treaters…there’s so much potential for fun. That’s why each year we set up an elaborate display of Halloween decorations to help spread a little bit of extra spooky spirit.
We created the decorations when my oldest son was just eight months old. From plywood tombstones with fun names to a large prize wheel for kids to spin to giant bats created with garbage bags and pop bottles to a giant spider that dominated the front yard, the total effect was just fabulous.
Of course, with such great decorations, we had to have great costumes to go with it! That year we dressed up as a witch and a ghost with Zackary as our adorable little Tigger. And it goes without saying that we took a lot of pictures!
I think most people have a favourite Halloween that stands out in their minds and this year, Nestle is asking Canadians to share photos of their favourite Halloween for the chance to win delicious Nestle Chocolate for their entire neighbourhood! Just submit a picture of your favourite Halloween on the Nestle Canada Facebook app page by October 8 and a team of judges will choose ten finalists. Then the voting begins! The finalist with the most votes will win $2000 of Nestle chocolate to provide their neighbourhood with tasty Halloween treats!
And as if that wasn’t sweet enough, entrants will also have the chance to randomly win daily prizes for entering! So take a look through your photo albums and find a photo from that special Halloween for a chance to win a delicious chocolaty prize. It’s a great way to make Halloween even more full of family fun!
