Tired of tricks and treats? Do you have a bad case of costume ennui? Then celebrate in a slightly different manner this year. Instead of stuffing yourself with fun-size chocolate bars, get back to the roots of the holiday by starting your own family tradition.
Since Halloween's origins focus on the coming Winter months and their darker nights, why not start a bonfire in your backyard, and welcome in the change of seasons at your house? Don't forget to tell some spooky stories while you're at it! Even if you do go door-to-door this year, ending the night in front of a backyard bonfire is a great way to finish the evening.
