Finn and Honolulu Mother have some thoughts about Halloween.
Halloween is coming up soon, a fact of which you are well aware if your kids (or you) have been watching the Disney Channel, which has been trying to turn the entire month of October into Halloween.
This year it’s on a Saturday, which will change its dynamic relative to the more common weekday Halloween.
What are you and your family doing for Halloween this year? Throwing a party? Going to a party? Treating it like any other Halloween? Hiding in the bushes with a water hose?

Do you make any special recipes for Halloween? A spiderweb cake, mini hot dogs wrapped in pastry to look like mummies, a ghastly punch? Or perhaps food traditions that may not be Halloween-themed but that you associate with it?
We’ve taken to having pizza on Halloween night as it’s easy to eat for costumed people and also is something the kids are likely to at least eat a slice of before heading out to gather sweet Halloween bounty. We’ve also made various Halloween-themed treats, both for friends’ parties and our own place. The Taste of Home website has a bunch of Halloween recipes, broken down by category (spider theme, graveyard theme, etc.). If you prefer a more upscale approach, Martha Stewart’s site is another option. A couple of years ago I made a shrimp mousse brain, similar to this one.
So in addition to Finn’s questions, please also let us know what special foods or drinks you might be trying for Halloween!
