Last night my lady and I decorated our house with Halloween gear, before heading out to a haunted trail event.
I had a lot of fun. We need more decorations, but it’s our first Halloween together so I figure we’ll gain more ‘stuff’ as the years go by. What we have now is good enough. The main thing was doing it together and having fun with it.
Afterwards, we went to the Mongolian Grill for some wraps. I realized that it wasn’t nearly as good as I remembered it. I think the biggest difference is that my wraps didn’t contain meat, since I’m now a vegetarian.
It just wasn’t the same – still good but it just felt like something was missing.
We then went and grabbed a hot chocolate and headed out to the Midnight Village. We weren’t allowed to take pictures of the actual event so the best we could do was take a picture before we headed inside.
The Midnight Village takes place in a pioneer village. You start out in a group and you have a ‘spirit guide’. You make your way around the village and stop at different outdoor settings where actors in costume tell you a creepy story.
It’s fun and it changes every year.
Our favorite was a sort of doll-like character with one dead eye. She recounts a story about how she was left behind and how her owner murdered her husband for being late to a dancing ball.
The actor was amazing. Very creepy.
It was a great evening and I truly enjoyed myself.
