Moms and Halloween!
It's creepy and it's kooky -- and it's Mom's favorite low-stress holiday! According to mom after mom, those infamous "big name" holidays—you know which ones we mean—are sometimes more headache than highlight. The pressure! The presents! The out-of-town guests or out-of-town travel, the cooking and cleaning, the expense! But Halloween—that's a different story. More than two-thirds of Mom’s are involved in celebrating with their families.
What I love best about Halloween is all the little things that I see families doing every year, stuff that's unique to their family, not part of some big commercial idea about what the holiday should be like. Whether it’s just the basics—costume, trick-or-treating, candy eating— now we've got a whole series of activities and special events that many kids totally look forward to—from roasting pumpkin seeds to making a scary straw man for the front porch. Things don’t have to be fancy, elaborate, or expensive, but it's all uniquely about family traditions and memories that kids will treasure their whole lives. Go on, string fake webs all over your porch, hang ghosts from the trees, cut out scary silhouettes and tape them in the windows, or create a cemetery in your front yard! Halloween's one time you can really go over the top with your kids. Halloween is one time even the most health-conscious moms can give in to their sweet fangs without any guilt at all.
To reiterate, we donate a substantial portion of our income on home sales to Royal LePage Shelter Foundation.
The reason is because they do very good work helping families recover. It is because of these people that many families are able to put their lives back together.
SO YOUR REFERRALS REALLY DO HELP FAMLIES THAT DESPERATELY NEED YOUR HELP
We are VERY CLOSE to our goal of raising $10,000 for the Royal LePage Shelter Foundation this year. We do this by donating to them a portion of our income from homes we sell. As you know the Royal LePage Shelter Foundation does awesome work in helping families fight through and survive nasty domestic abuse and violence. Countless families have found hope and begun a new life thanks to the many compassionate people at the Royal LePage Shelter Foundation.
