How Do I Love Halloween? Let Me Count The Ways

The cool crisp air whistling through the trees along quiet, moonlit neighborhoods; the scenery like abstract paintings in hues of orange, yellows, and reds; the crazily comfy sweaters that wrap you like a warm hug. Yup, it’s official. Fall has arrived and it is graciously accompanied by the ever-exhilarating all Hallows Eve, and a spirit that spreads like a virus through die-hard Halloween fans everywhere.

Twisted souls from all walks of life suddenly begin to assemble frightening displays of evil-doings and massive maniacal miscreants. Immortal beings by the hundreds flood the once serene communities’ homes, roadways, and lives. Establishments everywhere host cult-like gatherings for the earthbound dead, the criminally insane, the bewitchingly beautiful, the outrageously originals to come together to worship their sacred occasion.

Yes, the moment the heat breaks and the first leaf falls, it's go time. Here are just a few of my favorites, enjoy!

1. A whole month of horror!!

Old horror, new horror, blood & guts galore. Even my favorite shows feature spooky special episodes. Yes, I spend a lot of time with the lights on and the blankets up to my eyeballs, but it's totally worth it.

2. Candy, Candy, CANDY!

It's a good thing it's sweater weather because around now I start eating candy like it's my job!

3. "Cuz this is Thriller"

Classic! Every single person in America should know it and break into dance the moment they hear it.

4. Jack-o-Lantern-ing

Who says it's not ok to have fourteen carved pumpkins scattered about your front yard?
Oh the possibilities......

5. Harvest Festivals & Hayrides

Apple Cider & Pumpkin Picking

6. Haunted attractions

The wet your pants, scare the sugar out of you, and scream like a little girl kind of fun.

7. Pumpkin Spice EVERYTHING!!

Wait......are those condoms and tampons?!?

8. Indulging my Inner Child

I don't care how old you are, dressing up for Halloween is pure awesomeness!

9. It's a Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown

10. Gorgeousness everywhere you look

11. The. Walking. Dead.

...and Daryl <3

12. Home-front Haunts

It's not hard to figure out who the Halloween freaks are and aren't.....

......and we wouldn't have it any other way!

It’s everyone’s favorite time of year. Christmastime is a celebration, but have we forgotten what we are supposed to be celebrating? There is a reason the holiday is called Christmas. Not presentmas. Not Santamas. Not Swiftmas. Christmas.
