Do you have any Halloween parties planned?

How do you usually make conversation at a Halloween party?

Today we’ll tell you what to say to get great conversations started at a fall party or a Halloween party.

What happens at a Halloween party? There is usually a lot of laughter.

People are often complimenting each other on the creativity and cleverness of their costumes.

When you get invited to a Halloween party it can be stressful.

You might have trouble figuring out what to dress up as especically if you are a procrastinator, but not knowing how to start conversations can be worse.

We empathize with you so that’s what we’ll focus on today!

 Here is a question from our listener:


Hi Michelle, Lindsay, and Jessica,

I am a new listener. I have just found your podcast about a month ago. I am really into it!

I am very interested in Boston Adventure and really want to join you but this October one. Could you let me know when the next adventure is so that I can rearrange my schedule ahead

of time. What is included in that price? If you could give more detail, it would be great.

I have a favor to ask. My neighbors are going to throw a block party for Halloween. It is the first time for me to be in this kind of party. I don’t know how to start conversation with them. It is really hard for me to get into their conversation. I feel nervous and don’t know what I should do. Could you give me any advice, please?

Thank you sooooo much for your fantastic job! You guys rock!!!
