    Hi Carmen, so sorry for any confusion! When you are drafting a post, you should see a long column on the right. The alphabetized categories listed there are primarily the names of children who have posts attributed to them. But there is one category labeled “Halloween.” You can select that, for your post. However, even if you don’t categorize your post as “Halloween,” it will still appear in “Our Stories,” which is fine too! Email me directly at, if you have further questions!
