Celebrate National Dessert Day with Boo Treats

After watching a few Halloween movies, I discovered that to break a spell, which could have been cast on my family, friends, or even neighborhood, I would have to say the original spell backwards. For example, if the spell was one word “Trap”, to break it I would have to say “Part”. Once I discovered this, I realized this may work in real life as well.

How? Let’s say that I am very unprepared for the Halloween season. Party Planning, invitations, candies, food, costumes, and all the other details are looming over my shoulders and I am a basket case filled to the brim with stress. It turns out that we can use what I learned in a few Halloween movie to change my stressed day into something more enjoyable. Why? Because “stressed” backwards is “Desserts”.



So in honor of National Dessert Day, I think all of us stressed people should utter our current spell backwards and claim dessert day as our own. Grab a sunday, a banana Split, a cookie, or even a small chocolate bar. Savor it…relax…and let the stress disappear. Cancel the negative on this National Dessert Day. Just don’t go too overboard because too much of a good thing can turn bad.

This National Dessert Day, I thought I would share one of the cutest Halloween Desserts I have ever seen, the Halloween Boo Treats found on www.orientaltrading.com.
