My son's birthday is in October and we do not do a Halloween theme each year, as tempting as that is. This year we are having his party the day before Halloween at Chuck E Cheese's. We invited parents to have their children wear their Halloween costumes if their child would like to. This is the first time we have done that. I won't make it a habit. The only reason is in my town people are trick or treating on Saturday and not on Sunday. Since they will be wearing their costumes anyways a few hours later....why not for the entire day? It just worked out that way. I asked my son about this last year and he was not really fond of the idea of every year sharing his birthday with Halloween themes. He deserves, in my opinion, his special day that is just for him. Special because it is his day, not because it also has another meaning.
