Boo! Halloween is simply a scream, isn’t it? As a child, my mom always helped me create the most elaborate Halloween costumes I could imagine, from Viking princesses to robots made out of cardboard and tin foil, and I’ve carried that enthusiasm for the holiday well into my adulthood.
I’ve been in the spooky spirit since mid-September, so I’m very excited to share why I love Halloween as much as I do. Once you’ve scrolled through my top 10 list, make sure you add the reasons you love Halloween in the comments below!
1. Tempting Treats
No bones about it, a Halloween-themed spread at a party is simply to die for!
Sharing an idle threat in demand of candy might be a strange tradition, but it has a delicious outcome!
3. The Creepy Concoctions
This one is for the adults who go to Halloween parties “for the boos” — I know I’m one!
4. The Animal Costumes
Whether they’re wearing a costume with hatred or indifference, most pets know if they endure it for one picture, they’ll get a treat themselves.
5. The Crisp Fall Weather
Trick-or-treating isn’t complete without the sound of leaves crunching underfoot.
6. Watching Scary Movies
Grab the popcorn and try not to scream!
7. Carving Pumpkins
Anything involving knives and fire is fun. (With adult supervision, of course!)
8. Haunted Houses
As long as it’s not too freaky, I’m there!
9. Halloween Music
From the “Monster Mash” to “Thriller,” Halloween hits always get people moving.
10. The Memories It Creates
Halloween festivities allow family and friends to get together and have fun, and isn’t that what it’s all about?
