So, it’s THAT time of year…..yeah we all know what I’m talking about…..HALLOWEEN!!!
I absolutely love EVERYTHING about Halloween….yes, it’s my favorite holiday.
Why, you ask?
There are SO MANY reasons, but here are a few.
I love all of the scary movies and Halloween specials
One of my favorite things to do during the Halloween season and on Halloween is to sit on my couch with my friends (or by myself, it depends) and watch Halloween specials and Halloween movies. Some of my favorite Halloween specials are Pretty Little Liars and Modern Family (which are both not coming back this Halloween…I know, it’s really depressing). In terms of movies, my favorites range from childrens movies to drop-dead-from-a-heart-attack horror films. Nightmare Before Christmas, Hocus Pocus, Trick r’ Treat, Insidious 2, Scary Godmother, and Monsterville (new on netflix!) are just a few.
P.S. if you can’t stand a little bit of gore, I wouldn’t suggest Trick r’ Treat (not that much gore but it does have a little bit)
I love participating and being a part of Halloween fun
The Halloween parties, trick or treating, candy swapping…I LOVE doing anything related to Halloween. I mainly just love dressing up in Halloween costumes (look out for a post on costume ideas this week). My sister and I used to go trick or treating, and when we got back we would dumpy all of our candy on the floor and start swapping. Then we both ended up with candy we liked and none that we didn’t
These two reasons are things about Halloween that I love….
But the core reason why I love Halloween is….
The general spirit of Halloween
It’s the fact that you can dress up, no matter how old your are, and not be weird. It’s the scary-fun feel that you get when you go outside and you know it’s Halloween because you see a carved jack-o-lantern in front of every house. It’s the fact that everything under the sun now comes in pumpkin flavor (shoutout to Dunkin Donuts who has the best pumpkin latte with soy milk IN THE WORLD). You can be anything you want on Halloween.
Plus, I love the cute little things you can get in stores for decoration
Those are the reasons why Halloween is my favorite holiday.
Keep a lookout for my next Halloween post (hint: it’s about costumes)
