It's nearly that time of the year that all of the spooky obsessed people have been waiting. Halloween is approaching quickly. To people like you, Christmas isn't the most wonderful time of the year, it's Halloween. You can be your true, creepy self during the Halloween season and no one can judge you for it. You probably spend the rest of the year wishing it were Halloween. You probably have a storage closet dedicated to your Halloween décor, if you even put it away during the rest of the year at all. To those of us who are dedicated to this diabolic holiday, here are things you're sure to know:
You're psyched for the seasonal movies.
You know them all, and you love them all. You wait patiently all year on the classics like Hocus Pocus, The Rocky Horror Picture Show, The Nightmare before Christmas, the Scary Movie franchise, Trick R Treat, Halloween Town, Monster House, and of course the movie series that share its name with the holiday Halloween. Although, let's be honest, you probably watch some of these during the rest of the year too.
You go all out for your costume.
You've probably been planning your costume for months. You may even be coordinating costumes with friends, significant others, or family. You may have spent more money than you intended on it, but you just know it's going to be awesome.
You go all out on decorations, too.
You might have broken the bank making your house look fabulous for Halloween, but it's worth it. After all, it only comes once a year. If your space isn't spooky enough, you feel like it needs more effort. So go ahead, make and buy all the skeletons, ghosts, and pumpkin decorations your heart desires.
You hoard candy.
It's the time of the year when you can eat as much candy as you can (until it makes you sick.) No one can judge you because it's Halloween time. And who can blame you for stocking up on candy when all the supermarkets are full of it this time of year?
You have a Halloween playlist.
You have all the quintessential songs of the Halloween season in a playlist like the Monster Mash by Bobby Pickett, and I Put A Spell On You by Screamin' Jay Hawkins. You also probably have a few songs that aren't really considered Halloween songs but you can make them fit like Monster by Kanye West and Nikki Minaj, and Monster by Lady Gaga. Let's be honest, you listen to this theme song all year round.
No matter what your favorite part of the Halloween season is, these things are all a real part of your life if you're shamelessly spooky. Your bank account may not thank you, but it's all worth it. Keep it creepy, my friends.
