If you shed a few tears when you realized you were too old for trick-or-treating.. if you start planning your costume six months early.. if you have a full october agenda to get your into the holiday spirit.. YOU LOVE HALLOWEEN. Don’t worry, you aren’t alone.
There are only 27 days left! Start doing whatever it is that you do to get your Halloween ON.
Here are some important things that only Halloween lovers can understand:
- Watching Hocus Pocus, Nightmare Before Christmas (this one works for both Halloween AND Christmas), Halloweentown and every scary movie ever on repeat
Don’t let the non-festives get you down. Don’t feel bad about showing up late to a social gathering because you had to finish the ending to Hocus Pocus for the 300th time. This is the time to let your imagination run wild. Maybe it’s the changing weather that’s making us truly believe that we can get on a broomstick and fly away..
These movies will never get old. Grab a friend or just have a movie night ‘party of one’ and catch up on all your Halloween favs.. because soon it’s time to switch into instant Holiday mode.
2. Having Your Costume Planned Since November 1st, 2014
It’s never too early to plan ahead. This gives you 100% dibs on a great costume idea if one of your friends suddenly decides they too want to be Drunk Hillary Clinton (thank me now for this all-star costume). Don’t be afraid to go all out and dress up like a crazy woman/man. Halloween is the time to be whoever you want to be! Let boring people be boring, but you go out and flaunt your impression.. there’s always time to be yourself on Monday.
3. Getting Too Much Candy “On Accident”
“I’ll grab two.. maybe three big bags.. there could be a lot of kids this year.” Unless you live on a very busy street or love handing out handfuls of candy, you want some of the purchased candy for yourself! I mean, since it’s suddenly unacceptable to go out Trick-or-Treating.. we have to get our candy somehow. Don’t have any shame, eat all the candy you want.
4. Decorating The House In September
Was it still 75 degrees but you just HAD to have your pumpkins and spiderwebs sprawled out everywhere in your front yard? Did the inside smell of pumpkin spice and have adorable decor in every room? You are a true Halloween super fan and nobody can tell you otherwise. Halloween happens way too fast, so put your things up as early as you want! It does only last ONE day.
5. Dressing Up Your Pets
If there’s anything more entertaining than picking out your own costume, it’s picking out something for your dog or cat (and other various exotic pets). If you want a good few minutes of joy, google “pets in Halloween costumes”. Let the trick-or-treaters get greeted by your Pumpkin Spice Latte Pug or Sushi Roll Kitty. They will probably not enjoy it, but hey.. it’s almost over.
