You may have one or you may have seen them around but no doubt about it, The Elf on the Shelf is most definitely a holiday tradition for many families. Our family has had...
Fandango Family Halloween
We are movie lovers in this family. We see several movies each month and often meet other family members to see movies together. That is something that my family and my husband's family loves to do. It was great that we had this in common!
One of the fun things about Halloween is dressing up as your favorite movie character. This year, we are all going as Ghostbusters.
Beginning today, families can share their movie-inspired costumes in Fandango Family’s “My Movie Costume Contest” for the chance to win one of four prizes, each consisting of $500, plus a year’s worth of Fandango movie tickets. To enter, families can post their costume pictures on Instagram with one of four costume categories for Most Original, Spookiest, Best Superhero and Best Animated Character.
Costumes will be judged by Fandango Family bloggers Raijean Stroud of swa-rai.com, Stacie Connerty (me) of thedivinemissmommy.com, Mitch Chaitlin of gaynycdad.com, and Vera Sweeney of ladyandtheblog.com.
