I thought I’d post something a little different today. As I have mentioned in my past posts, I love anything gothic or Halloween related. Halloween has always been my favourite holiday of all time.
As a kid I would pour over books about witches, vampires and Goblins.
My mum and dad always used to throw us Halloween parties where we would dunk for apples and play other Halloween party games.
It was on Halloween when I met my boyfriend, so again another happy memory.
These days Halloween is extremely important to our household because for the past four years our house has been converted into a Halloween Haunt attraction. We build five extra rooms down out driveway all decorated in their own individual themes and open our house up for the general public. We are now known all over the north west.
So what makes us want to open our home up for complete strangers? Charity.
We don’t make a single penny from the haunt with every last pence goes to Cancer research.
It’s also worth seeing so many children enjoy themselves. It’s a safe environment for them to come and walk through get a little spooked and at the end of the attraction we give out goody bags.
It’s such a fun night for everyone involved.
Last year we raised £1700 for cancer research all in one night, and that makes us very proud of what we do.
I wrote this blog post because I am going to start blogging about the Halloween process.
Showing you the props, events and hard work that goes into building a successful haunt.
I hope you enjoy the posts.
