5 Tips to get in the Spooky Spirit 🎃
FALL HAS ARRIVED! The most gorgeous time of the year when the leaves are an array of deep red, orange and yellow tones. The weather is starting to cool down and the crisp fall air is upon us, but the holiday season is just starting to heat up. If you’re still mourning the end of Summer, just follow these top five tips and you’ll be in the trickery and ghostly spirit in no time!
Some freaky and frightening decor is essential to creating all of your spooky vibes! Nothing chills our Halloween hearts like pumpkins, spider webs, ghosts and ghouls, and gravestones on every street. It’s just like Christmas! Decorations get everyone pumped up for the big day, and who doesn’t love seeing all the different ideas neighbors and businesses come up with!
2. Horror Movies
My favorite part of the spooky season is the excuse to watch a cauldron full of horror movies! All of October is an excuse for movie marathons and you can’t go wrong with the classics like The Poltergeist or Carrie (no remakes allowed!). If you don’t have time for a movie marathon, Netflix and Thrill with an episode of American Horror Story or the X-Files.
3. Pumpkin Patches
There’s nothing like a field of pumpkins, corn mazes, and a little hot cider to get you falling for Fall! Pumpkin patches are the perfect way to get in some quality time with friends and family. Taking a hayride through the rows and rows of corn, search endlessly for the perfect pumpkin to carve, you can really make a day of it! And don’t forget all the noms too- roasted pumpkin seeds, apple cider donuts, hot chocolate… all treats and no tricks at the pumpkin patch!
4. Haunted Houses
Ahh, haunted houses! They’re to DIE for! Whether you prefer the one in your neighbor’s garage or the scariest theme park fright night, they’re all terrifyingly awesome! Everyone loves a good spook and pranks are definitely welcome during this time of the year. What better way to get into the Halloween spirit than getting the spirit scared out of you!
5. Pumpkin Spice
As soon as the fall season starts, the pumpkin spice comes out! From coffee to marshmallows to chips to hummus to Oreos, America is in loooove with Pumpkin Spice. I actually think my caffeine intake triples when the season comes around just because of that yummy pumpkin spice coffee! Next time you find yourself face to face with pumpkin spice, take the plunge and flavor blast your Fall season!
Whether you do a few or you do them all, the haunts are upon us and its time to celebrate! Tis the spooky season 🎃
