Every year, until this one, my wife and I would hold a Halloween party. Halloween happened to be our wedding anniversary, so it was always a combined ‘Halloversary’ party (or ‘Hallowversary’ to some). Obviously that wasn’t going to happen this year. Nevertheless, I gave some thought to holding a Halloween party anyway. I went back and forth a little on that, but eventually decided I just did not have the headspace for it this year.

Luckily some friends stepped into the breach and held an awesome little party with games, costumes, prizes, and fantastic Halloween decorations. It was nice, at least for this year, to be able to maintain the tradition of a Halloween party without me having to actually hold the party (and likely break myself to do it).

Plus, I’m now even more inspired for holding a party next year.
