15 Reasons You Can And Should Still Love Halloween As An Adult
Kevin Wallace

Halloween is the most wonderful time of the year! Kids love this time of year because it's the one day parents let them eat their hearts out in all the candy they just got. They get to dress up as cool characters and have a fun night out. It's safe to say, most kids love Halloween, but Halloween is not just enjoyable to kids. In fact, adults should love Halloween just as much as the kids, if not more.

Adults have many more reasons to love Halloween, actually.

Free. Candy.

Seriously, there's free candy everywhere. Why are you not taking advantage of that?!

Or buy your own

You're finally old enough to buy your own candy as well now, so if you insist on staying in, you'd better have your bag or candy corn, or the better stuff of course.


Let's be real, no party beats a Halloween party.

Party prizes!!

Did I mention most parties come with costume contests, and those who win usually win some sort of prize.

Halloween movies

You can never go wrong with a good Halloween movie. I don't care how old you are. Seriously guys, curl up on the couch and binge watch them. You won't regret it.

Candy Apples

So if you were like me as a kid, you loved candy apples, but never had the patience to enjoy them because they were so stinky. Now, you're old enough to actually sit there and enjoy that sticky, sweet treat (maybe).

You choose when the night ends

Remember when you were like 8 and wanted to stay out late on Halloween, but your parents always said no? Yea, you make the rules now!!


Sure, Christmas decorations are fun and all, but come one guys, something about Halloween decorations makes the world a much better place. As an adult, you get to have all the fun with this!


Yes, I realize costumes are fun as a kid, but as an adult the possibilities are endless and so much more creative.

Haunted Houses

There aren't many things in life that beat being terrified to death with a group of friends, or watching said friends jump right out of their skin.

Themed foods

Sureeeee chocolate covered pretzels are great in general, but have you ever ate a chocolate covered pretzel made to look like a spider? That you made yourself? Yea those are the best.

Trick or Treating

There, I said it. Adults can trick or treat, too.

Hayrides, but minus the hay

Now you can choose whether you ride in the back of the truck with all the itchy hay, or in the cab where it's warm.

You're a pro at bobbing for apples now

Beating all those kids, one bob at a time.

You're the adult who gets to scare the kids now

You remember the days when you always were a little timid to knock on doors because you weren't sure if it was going to be the super sweet ones, or the ones who jump out in the most terrifying ensemble possible? Well congratulations, you now have the opportunity to be that person now.

Because I'm still reminiscing about simpler times.


The Christmas season is coming to an end, but it's not too late to get some last-minute movies in! Unfortunately, this year didn't look like a typical Christmas. While we can't have any big Christmas parties or family gatherings, we can still celebrate at home! Christmas is the best time for nostalgia, and we could all use some warm and fuzzy feelings as we wrap up a tough year and enter a new one that hasn't been proven any calmer, either.

As a kid who grew up in the 2000s, I can think of some of my favorite staple Christmas movies. If you're looking for recommendations or just a walk down memory lane, check out the list below.

The Wilds is the Best New Show on Amazon Prime


As we enter the new year, you might be looking for a great show to kick-off 2021. Look no further, I have the perfect recommendation. "The Wilds" was released on Amazon Prime last month and has been gaining traction steadily since then. This series of 10 one-hour episodes tells the stories of eight girls who find themselves on a deserted island after their plane crashed while they are on their way to a resort. Unlike other survival shows, there's a bit more to the story than what first meets the eye. This show is unique in characters, storytelling methods, and plot.
