Halloween: A Day of Treats

Knock Knock.

Who’s there at the door?

Is it a Ghost?

A Goblin?

A Witch?

A Frankenstein Monster?

Maybe it’s a Werewolf, a Vampire, or a Princess?

Halloween is one of my favorite holidays. You can step outside of yourself, outside of your everyday life, and be whatever you want to be. Even adults can wear costumes and carve pumpkins. We’ve seen a number of them on the CashCrate Forum:

Halloween Costume Contest 2013

Halloween Pumpkin Carving Contest 2013

I think it’s the kids that enjoy Halloween the most. Moms and dads take the kids shopping well in advance to find the perfect costume at Walmart, Target, Kmart, and a host of other stores. Talented parents may actually make a costume for their little ones. Excitement builds for weeks.

Families carve pumpkins and put them on display. Some put up Halloween decorations in the yard, on fences, trees, and on the side of the house. You’ll see some porches decorated with monsters and fake cobwebs. Some even play scary music to add to the effect.

When Halloween night finally arrives, the kids put their costumes on. Rain or shine, it’s time to look for candy and to knock on doors where the outside and porch lights are on. If you hand out candy, you never know what mythical creatures will be ringing your bell or knocking at your door. A child in costume never knows what candy they’ll get, but they’re hoping for something that they like. It’s Mom or Dad’s job to check the candy before the kids dig in.

At CashCrate, we love Halloween. We have Halloween themed contests: A big monthly cash contest, and costume and pumpkin carving contests on the CashCrate Forum. We don’t give out candy, but we do give you the opportunity to earn cash.

Be sure to stop by and check out our Halloween festivities.

Have a happy and safe Halloween.
