Everyone loves to dress up.
Children can do it every day, or at least on a weekly basis. For us, “adults”, we usually have the opportunity to do it once a year (Halloween, Purim or other annual holidays – depending on your religion). When your kids are young you don’t have time to think about yourself. You dress your kids up and invest the time make their costume really stand out, but for you? you just grab some funny glasses from the $2 shop, wear them and TAADAAA – you have a costume.
Nayyyy. That’s not how you should do it.
Well, now that my kids are a bit older, so I have the time and energy to make an extra effort for that special holiday. And I have to admit: I really like it. No one can refuse to an offer to be someone else for one day.
I would love to be someone else for just one day. On that day your face are going to hurt from laughter. it’s fun to see the people you know and their kids, all dress up in all sorts of funny or scary costumes.
I take advantage of that day, a day that I can masquerade, be more extrovert, laugh more (maybe a drink will help:) ) and the most important thing is I relish from my family’s joy and happiness on that day. I’m going to get the most out of it!
I recommend that you will do that too. You better collect memories – not things.
