Building up fun traditions every Halloween

There is nothing that quite ties a family together like a film night.  A chance to shut the world away, squash together on the sofa and stop the bickering.  Whether it’s watching a film that you have all seen time and time again.  One that you are sharing with the children for the first time.  Or even one that nobody has seen (sometimes the best option so nobody gives away any spoilers!).

Halloween is a great time for spending some quality time together and building up fun traditions. From attending pumpkin patches together to find just the right pumpkin to carve and showcase outside your home ready for Trick or Treaters.  To walking around your neighbourhood seeing the Halloween displays that your neighbours have created (and competed against to have ‘the best’ display).  Once you’ve collected your Halloween candy haul, what better way to finish off the night with a Halloween family film night.
