7 Awesome Things About Halloween Time



true.  but there's certainly a lot of other reasons to love this holiday.

the excuse to watch hocus pocus on repeat.  amuck amuck amuck amuck.  it never gets old and despite the fact that that movie came out in 1993, yeah, 20 years ago when i was 8, it's relevant year after year. don't even try to tell me you don't still watch it constantly.  and i happen to much prefer halloween music to christmas music.  i love both, but halloween music is actual songs from real bands, not just one hit wonders or jingles that have been around for years.

the spiders are fake and not real, extra large hairy things hanging out in your window.  although fake spiderwebs are just as gross to walk into.

leftover halloween candy doesn't have calories.  moms, take note.  also, jen and i used to charge 'big sister tax' when we took her sisters trick-or-treating.  free, fun sized candy doesn't count as calories.  it's science or something.  (you can even use whatever you have left to make into cupcakes with vodka.)

this is also the perfect time to eat candy at every opportunity.  candy for breakfast!  only acceptable on halloween and easter.

it's easy and enjoyable.  i'm all for easy holidays.  there's no stress about the perfect gift for halloween.  candy, you give them candy.  you can hang up a creepy jason mask or a friendly casper and make the holiday whatever you want.  no perfect christmas tree pressure.  no perfect turkey or ham or side dishes.  just candy, pizza decorated like candy corn, maybe a hot dog wrapped like a mummy in some bread sticks.  there's also no demands for your time - none of your family expects to see you on halloween like they do for thanksgiving.

post halloween sales.  pumpkin shaped reese's and orange paper plates work just as well on november 1, thank you very much.

costumes let you do what you want.  a couple halloweens ago, and maaaybe again this past friday, it was totally fine for me to drink a lot and not be able able to walk in my shoes and have runs in my fishnets.  because i was ke$ha.  when i was a child and it rained during trick or treating, i demanded my mom drive me from door to door.  it was fine, i was a princess.  or a maybe a devil.  either way, just plan your night and pick a costume so you can behave accordingly without repercussions*.



*unless you're going to act really terribly, in which case wear a kick ass costume and call me, because i love watching the front of the police station on halloween.  seriously, it ranks in my top 10 favorite activities.


there's a reason it's my favorite holiday!  happy halloween!

  4. you guys have huge racks. had to be said #notsorry.

    the ONLY thing i don't like about halloween is that on EVERY channel, a horror movie is playing or they air commercials about horror movies without warning. so one second i'm watching a commercial about toilet paper and bam! scary face plastered on TV. warn a bitch next time!! sheesh!

  7. Pumpkin shaped reeses are everything to me. I prefer to spend my Halloween eating the entire bag before trick or treaters come knocking at my door.

    1. I haven't handed out candy in so long, you just don't get trick or treaters in an apartment building in a big city! I'd love to do it though, it's fun to see all the costumes.
