Halloween is on Monday. You can make Halloween whatever you want to make it to be. I know it is fast becoming a very politically-incorrect holiday, but I don’t care. I love it! It’s a time to be silly. It’s a time to dress up and play. You can play with your food, your drinks and just have some fun.

Have an issue with candy? We have a dentist in our neighborhood who gives out toothbrushes every year. I love it! We also have many local dentists who give kids money in exchange for their candy by the pound. Another dentist donates the money and gives it to our local elementary school.

Several families I know donates the candy collected to the Ronald McDonald House. Costco sells this little bags of spooky pretzels. You can give away pencils, stickers, plastic rings and other trinkets.

You can also keep your house dark and not participate. Ain’t this country great?

This year we will have our street blocked off. We started this tradition last year due to a grumpy neighbor down the street that likes to speed down to their house, in the dark, on Halloween night while kids are walking about.

Now we have a permit, barricades and a night of fun – safe fun for our friends, neighbors and children. We share food, we laugh, the kids enjoy frolicking in the street.

And then we go trick-or-treating.

Need some fun halloween drinks to put you in the Halloween spirit? Then try this dye-free all natural Purplicious Potion. This is a concoction my husband developed last year during our great pomegranate experiments.

You see, when you combine pomegranate juice with pineapple juice you get the base to this drink. You can keep it this way or add some extra-goodness, as we did in our recipe.

Need another dye-free spooky Halloween drink? How about my Kiwano Margarita? It’s naturally green! Full recipe here.
