5 Things To Do On Halloween


No kids? No problem! Halloween is my favorite holiday and I like to always do something to celebrate this day. As it is marketed towards children, I feel like sometimes adults grow out of it too quickly. But if you are in the spirit to spook, then these ideas are for you:

1. Binge watch any of these movies: It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown, The Addams Family, Hocus Pocus, Edward Scissorhands, and The Craft.  

2. Eat candy: Why not invest in your favorite treat this day? These are my favorite. Bonus points on the cute box it comes in for the season. Now these are for you so go all out! You can give out something else, which leads me to my next point...

3. Give out candy: I don't fear the 'trick' if I don't give out candy. But the thing I looked forward too the most when I bought my house was giving out candy on Halloween. I just love seeing all those kids dressed in adorable costumes high on candy and natural excitement. So pull out a chair, get a giant bowl of candy ready, and...

4. Dress up: No, you are not too old for this. You are never to old for this. It will add to the excitement of the day. Plus kids love seeing you all dressed up as you fill up their baggies. 

5. Listen to an original broadcast of War of the Worlds: As your night winds down, curl up with your favorite blanket and listen to an original broadcast of Orson Welles War of the Worlds. I love that when it first broadcasted, many listeners believed this was actually happening. It wouldn't happen in today's society, but just put yourself in that frame of mind. Sip on some hot cocoa whilst listening and the mood is set!
