Low Waste Halloween

Today’s the day after Halloween, which means a lot of things. Some of them are:

  1. It’s November 1st. We’re getting closer and closer to Winter territory.
  2. We have to wait an entire year for the next Halloween. Boo!
  3. It’s the beginning of the Christmas season.

Our family tried to maintain a low waste Halloween this year. We walked to purchase our pumpkin, carved the said pumpkin, and then roasted the seeds inside. I used a decorative candle that I already owned to light it instead of purchasing a new one. Other than the jack-o-latern and two smaller pumpkins, we did not get additional decorations this year. It was a fun and simple way to get into the Halloween spirit without indulging too much in consumerism. That’s always a win in my book.

Here is the said jack-o-latern:

At night time, we walked around the neighborhood to admire the festive spirit of other families. Spooky houses, creative costumes, and fog machines made the night feel just like how Halloween should feel like. Granted, I did get a skeleton shirt, but it’s definitely a shirt I will wear again and again. I’m literally counting the days until the next Halloween. There’s… 363 more to go?

What did you do to celebrate Halloween this year?
