Some people celebrate Halloween for the spooks. It’s understandable if everyone isn’t into bloody, creepy stuff that nightmares are made out of. If you’re not into scary movies and creeping people out, there are still plenty of ways to celebrate October 31. Save the “sawed,” “broken” fingers for somebody else and try a fun manicure that will actually put a smile on people’s faces.
