We run a positive alternative to Halloween called a Light Party. Instead of celebrating scary things, we celebrate good things.
This is hosted by Encounter Christian Centre, 495 Rosebank Rd Avondale. This year’s theme is ‘In the Jungle’. Kids dress up in theme, $2 entry and can play games and activities to win lollies and prizes.
We find this is a much more fun and safe environment for the kids. All welcome.
Treat doesn’t have to be sugary, right? I usually fold lots of Origami papers and make Halloween themed items such as witches and other monsters to give away for kids who knock my door. They love them
It’s a bit of fun for the kids and actually good exercise as we end up walking for quite a time and distance. It’s a special treat. We respect if people don’t welcome [us] though.
