Move The Halloween Date? Win $25 Gift Card (3 winners)!

CONTESTS | | October 13, 2009 at 8:50 pm



Congratulations Nicole, Jessica and Beth!

Halloween on a Saturday? Always a Saturday! Make that the last Saturday in October? Easier to remember, or not? Although I do have a passion for October 31st as a date the guys behind this fun movement,  Spirit Halloween, have a point to make.  Still not convinced? How about these tit bits to make you ponder:

· Trick or Treating with the kids is more fun on a Saturday when you know you dont have to get up early for work or school the next day. Now seriously do you need more convincing than that?

· You can let the kids sleep out their sugar comas the next morning instead of dragging their still painted and still costumed persons out of bed

· Halloween parties are more fun and can last longer when Halloween is on a Saturday. Get a babysitter and you can make Halloween your party time.

Wondering where do you sign up? Well you can sign the pledge or get more information on the Spirit Halloween fan page (and if it flaps your wings then become a fan)

Are you like me and still hunting for a perfect costume for your little one? Although I have one costume set I am still on the hunt for another costume for my 2 year old. Luckily I am getting a $25 gift card to Spirit Halloween to get me started. In this tough economy it really helps. What? You could do with one too? Well Mommy Niri always takes care of her readers. You can win a $25 Gift Card here at Mommy Niri.  To make it even more special there will be 3 winners.

    Let me give you some background on my favorite costume. My hubby’s birthday is ON Halloween. So one year, pre-kids, for his birthday I took him out to a romantic birthday dinner, while there, my mom and a whole bunch of family and friends came to our home and went in and decorated for a surprise costume party. After our romantic dinner out, I said to him, lets go check out the halloween party at our friends home. He was like yea, but it is a costume party, and we aren’t dressed… I had a fix for that, I had a clown costume in the trunk of the car for me and a WOMAN (lol) costume for him to wear, complete with wig, heels, dress, and MAKE UP!!! We went to our friends home, slipped in the back door and then got dressed up in their bathroom (you see the friends party was a skeme just to act like they were really having a party, just so he would dress up) we then left (and they snuck and followed) to go home where everyone was waiting for us, for HIS BIRTHDAY COSTUME SURPRISE PARTY. We went into the house, it was dark, he was dressed like a woman still. When we opened the door, a “monster” jumped out and they all yelled “Surprise” He was so shocked he pushed me toward them (some man right, but I give him a break cause he was a woman that night, heheeh) and he screamed and ran. Then he realized it was people we knew. THEN he realized he was a WOMAN !!! so I “punked” him too. It was so hilarious!!! All of his college friends acted like they were making passes at him and all, they told him he makes a hot chic, hehehe so this by far HAS to be my favorite costume. My hubby dressing as a woman. ;)

    I took the pledge. I like the nerdboy costume in the youtube clip. My favorite alltime costume was a punkrock look where I had makeup professionally done by Lena Kaleva from the cult 80′s film Liquid Sky. It was a fluke opportunity and I’m glad I sprung for it.

    My favorite Halloween costume has to be the one my toddler will be wearing this year. He is going to be an official NASA astronaut and is absolutely adorable in the outfit! We are going to take him to Kennedy Space Center all decked out in his orange suit once the weather cools down here in Orlando, Florida.

    My favorite costume on the Spirit Halloween You Tube video was the wonder woman type outfit (I used to love that show as a kid).

    I agree with you. I prefer to celebrate it on Saturday. It is easier to remember, easier to prepare.
    In my side, I don’t know how to do and how to wear on Halloween. I have no time and my budget is limited. I prefer upload my own picture and send it out to friends and family with a message as a greeting on Halloween at Halloween 2009
