Over in the US, Halloween is one of the most important holidays of the year where you'd be hard-pressed to find those not participating in the ghoulish festivities.
After the limited housebound celebrations of 2020, it's now more important than ever to celebrate. What better excuse that Halloween to get the whole family in fancy dress - whatever their age.
Firsts are always important, and they shouldn't have to miss out on the Halloween fun just because they're too young to really understand what's going on. Get your little ones dressed up to the nines in silly, scary and downright hilarious costumes for photos you will cherish for the rest of their lives. Your family and friends will definitely appreciate it.
To make things easier, choose a costume that can be taken on and off with ease for those inevitable nappy changes. It's also worth remembering that temperatures could drop at the end of the month, so add insulation if you're going out and about.
