spooky halloween story tradition

My girls love holiday traditions. Even if it's a tradition that I have just recently started, my girls are quick to jump on the bandwagon. I am determined to start this one immediately in anticipation of Halloween.

At bedtime, gather in the living room, light candles and ready "spooky stories" in the flickering light. At the end of the stories, let each of your children blow out a candle. I may also end it with a couple of candy corns for good measure.

Click on the image below for some favorite "spooky story" suggestions. Happy reading!

For the past three years we have lit a candelabra and read by it's candle night for the week leading up to Halloween and my children absolutely love it! Just yesterday I was in the library looking up Halloween books but it is hard to find them in the catalogue without having their names! This list is fantastic to have! I printed it out and will save it. Thank you so much.
