11 Must-Watch Halloween Movies

Timeless movies during the fall? Halloween movies are some that are often classic and telltale of the season. Whether you're actually a child or a child at heart, Halloween is time for some good fun! Here are some Halloween movies that you need to see this season.

1. "Halloweentown"

This movie is a Disney Channel classic and a childhood memory we all can’t shake. Check it out before the Halloween season is over and it's no longer socially acceptable to sit on the couch with a bowl of candy.

2. "Buffy the Vampire Slayer"

Maybe old, but always in our hearts! Oh gosh, I sound cheesy. But really, this is a fun Halloween-themed movie that will bring memories and make the season typical.

3. "Edward Scissorhands"

This movie did freak me out until I was 13. However, it is a classic and the special effects were pretty good for this era. Wow, has time in film evolved with special effects. Nothing is quite like Halloween movies.

4. "Charlie Brown Halloween Special"

Even though this is annoying sometimes, watching the "Charlie Brown" holiday specials brings you back to when you were 5 and your biggest care in the world was what kind of costume you were going to have and how much candy you could get. After all, your friends would pick a few neighborhoods to go to in order to maximize your candy collection. Also, don’t forget to go to the house that gives out extra large candy bars!

5. "Hocus Pocus"

This is another kid classic, but nevertheless will be nostalgic and make you remember the days when trick or treating was socially acceptable. I guess a 20-something dressed up going door to door seems rather creepy. Buy your own darn candy, sir!

6. "The Legend of Sleepy Hollow"

This movie is always a little interesting. Not really scary, but gives enough spook for the scaredy cats like me.

7. "The Nightmare Before Christmas"

Anything Tim Burton is a little creepy, a little cute. This movie is a Halloween classic no one can miss out on!

8. "Casper"

This mid-1990s classic is cute and funny which will make you reminisce on your childhood a bit more. Again, socially acceptable to watch this with a bowl of candy.

9. "It"

I could never, ever watch this movie since I am legitimately petrified of clowns. However, the Halloween season does scare some.

10. "Saw"

Another classic scary movie I will probably never watch because I’m actually 5. However, if you’re in the mood for a classic scary Halloween movie, don’t forget this thriller!

11. "Mean Girls"

No, this is not scary or really Halloween-themed, but it is a classic and there is one scene where the characters are at a Halloween party, so I find it an acceptable Halloween movie (and it’s not scary -- yay!).

There you go! An interestingly well-rounded (or so I think) Halloween movie list for this Halloween season! After all, we need to get into the spirit of fall, dressing up in costume and getting our sugar fix somehow! Happy Halloween, and trick or treat!

Separation Anxiety in Pets

Separation anxiety in pets is a real thing and recognizing the warning signs is important.


Since March, Covid-19 required most of the world to quarantine in their homes. Majority of people ended up working from home for nearly five months. This meant pet owners were constantly with their pets giving them attention, playing with them, letting them out etc. Therefore, when the world slowly started to open up again and pet owners began returning to normal life work schedules away from the home, pet owners noticed a difference in the way their pet acted. Many pets develop separation anxiety especially during this crazy time when majority people were stuck inside barely leaving the house.

Exposing Kids To Nature Is The Best Way To Get Their Creative Juices Flowing

5 Simple Ways To Give Yourself Grace, Especially When Life Gets Hard

Grace begins with a simple awareness of who we are and who we are becoming.

If there's one thing I'm absolutely terrible at, it's giving myself grace. I'm easily my own worst critic in almost everything that I do. I'm a raging perfectionist, and I have unrealistic expectations for myself at times. I can remember simple errors I made years ago, and I still hold on to them. The biggest thing I'm trying to work on is giving myself grace. I've realized that when I don't give myself grace, I miss out on being human. Even more so, I've realized that in order to give grace to others, I need to learn how to give grace to myself, too. So often, we let perfection dominate our lives without even realizing it. I've decided to change that in my own life, and I hope you'll consider doing that, too. Grace begins with a simple awareness of who we are and who we're becoming. As you read through these five affirmations and ways to give yourself grace, I hope you'll take them in. Read them. Write them down. Think about them. Most of all, I hope you'll use them to encourage yourself and realize that you are never alone and you always have the power to change your story.

Were all teenagers and twenty-somethings bingeing the latest "To All The Boys: Always and Forever" last night with all of their friends on their basement TV? Nope? Just me? Oh, how I doubt that.

I have been excited for this movie ever since I saw the NYC skyline in the trailer that was released earlier this year. I'm a sucker for any movie or TV show that takes place in the Big Apple.
