Halloween


Halloween is confusing for little kids. Just when they were beginning to make sense of their world, everyone looks and acts different. Words change along with costumes. Is that a real pumpkin? If I am dressed up like a pumpkin, am I a pumpkin? Some toddlers don’t want to wear a costume. It it’s as they are afraid they will really become the strange thing that is the costume (a pumpkin or witch? Batman or Princess Elsa?). It helps to talk a lot about the words: real and unreal, reality and fantasy. It takes a lifetime for some of us to understand the difference.
