We Have a Happy Halloween Adventure with the Accountant in Wonderland
Happy Halloween! We try to keep the spirit of Halloween (ooh – spirits! scary!) alive year ’round here at Andrews Accounting. I mean, have you seen the mountain of candy we keep on our coffee table? But on October 31st, we go whole hog.
Every year we vote on a theme for the office. Then we all dress up to match the theme. Past favorites include the Addams Family, and the always popular Death. Next, the night before the anticipated Happy Halloween (All Hallows Eve Eve), we all make homemade treats. This year those included Jeri’s raspberry bars, Taryn’s chocolate chip cookies, Les’s chocolate-dipped macaroons, and Diedra’s black-and-white cupcakes, among other goodies.
Then we go door-to-door to our neighbors and play “Treat or Treat.” Yup, the idea is to GIVE treats instead of ask for them. And, well, you know, show off our costumes.
This Year’s Theme: Alice in Wonderland
This year we chose characters from Lewis Carroll’s classic children’s book, Alice in Wonderland. So on to the costumes!
Now, you might expect the first photo to be of Alice. But not when the Red Queen (Jeri) is around!
Now we have little Alice (Diedra), who didn’t drink anything suspicious this time, and stayed just the right size.
Next up is the Cheshire Cat (Taryn). She hasn’t disappeared to her smile yet – first she has to flash her claws.
Then of course the guy who wears a hat all the time has to be the Mad Hatter (Les).
The Dormouse (Debra) is ready for a nice tea party.
The White Rabbit (Cat) may be late, but only fashionably so.
But WE were late getting to the Caterpillar (Kela) – she’s already turned into a butterfly!
Did You Have a Happy Halloween?
Let us know in the comments. But if you didn’t, drop by next Halloween – we’ll save some treats for you!
YouTube has the oldest film version of Alice in Wonderland, made in 1903!
