We put out a bowl filled with lollipops for the trick-or-treaters.
We carved our jack-o-lanterns.
And….I made the Halloween chili!
Every year since my children were very small I’ve made chili for dinner on Halloween.
I started because it was easy to keep warm and we could eat a bit before taking the kids out or if they were too excited to eat a good dinner, we could eat it when they came back home.
For some time now, I’ve been following the Waldorf custom of giving each day of the week a specific colour.
Sunday -White (or silver)
I change the dish cloth that hangs on the stove and the candle on the kitchen table according to the day.
Even my husband often refers to the days of the week in colours now.
