When you’re struggling with infertility, holidays focused on children can be especially painful. Those struggling with infertility want nothing more than to have their own little one to dress up and take trick-or-treating, so seeing others doing the same is just a difficult reminder of what they want but have been unable to achieve. But for those who are trying to conceive, Halloween offers a variety of opportunities to have an adults-only holiday, from parties to movie marathons. Below are three adult-only options available for those who would like to celebrate Halloween without the reminder of their infertility.

Hit Up a Halloween Masquerade Party

While there are plenty of daytime parades and parties geared towards families with small children, there are plenty of nighttime festivities for adults-only. From masquerades to block parties, there are plenty of options available in the Dallas area this year. You’ll get to dress up, enjoy some tasty themed cocktails, and dance the night away.

Enjoy a Scary Movie Marathon

Whether at home or in the theater, scary movies are an integral part of Halloween. Queue up a movie marathon of Halloween favorites on Netflix and snuggle up with your partner on the couch with some treats. Want to get out of the house? Look up what’s playing at your local movie theater. Some theaters offer movie marathons of the classics (some even offer an interactive Rocky Horror Picture Show experience!) or catch a newly released horror movie. We guarantee there won’t be any kids at the movies on Halloween night!

Host Your Own Halloween Party

Have any fellow childless friends? Invite them over for an adult only Halloween party! Put up some spooky decorations, scary lighting, and a fun soundtrack to set the mood. Set out some tasty Halloween treats and themed cocktails while you’re at it! If you think they’d be interested, invite your friends that do have kids for a night out without them – just make sure to note in the invites that the party is for grownups only.

Halloween can be hard when you’re trying to conceive, but you can still enjoy the holiday without surrounding yourself with tiny reminders of the children you long for.
