With the coming holiday season, many Americans are seeking new ways to celebrate traditional holidays in fun and interesting ways. Because Halloween kicks off a series of exciting American holidays, The Huffington Post recently published a piece which details ways that people can engage in holiday activity in innovative ways. The article lists places of interest to those who celebrate Halloween as well as places that should be avoided by those who do not engage in the spooky activities. The article also listed areas that would be family friendly during the coming holidays and areas that groups with small children should avoid.
In one particular instance of holiday points of interest to avoid, the Huffington Post article described the festivities that will take place at local Burger King restaurants across the country. According to the article, the restaurant chain is offering free whoppers to the first 500 customers who visit the franchise location dressed in traditional clown costumes. The restaurant chain featured an advertising campaign at the beginning of October that featured a spooky clown figure who resembled the McDonalds mascot, Ronald McDonald. After the clown was chased down a street, it arrived safely in a well lit Burger King facility and offered free whoppers to the chain’s first 500 customers on Halloween night.
The franchise represents one of several Halloween points of interest that may not be suitable for groups that include small children during family outings. Other points of interest include several haunted houses and events. The Huffington Post article stated that families should visit events that are approved for families such as Halloween and Fall festivals and local fun houses that will be open to the public leading up to Halloween night. The article also featured unique ideas that families could use to celebrate the coming Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Years Holidays.
