Celebrating Halloween as an elder doesn’t have to be like most people believe it to be. While you might not be as young as you were 20-30 years ago, Halloween is one of those ageless holidays you can enjoy regardless of how old (or young) you are, as long as you maintain a youthful mind.
For elders who like to go all out on Halloween, decorating the home and having a scary movie night can be a great way to start off the celebrations on All Hallows’ Eve. You can pick out the movies yourself, and invite your friends, neighbors and family members to have a real blast.
If you live in an active senior living Denver community, consider helping out with the decorations. Most likely, the work will be accompanied by cheerful social time with the other residents, so you can definitely have a lot of fun in the process.
Another great thing to do on Halloween as a senior is to dress up in a great looking costume. You won’t find an activity that will bring you back to your youth more than this one, and the best thing about it is you can have a contest with the other residents and with younger visitors – including your family and friends – on who has the best costume.
