“Halloween shadows played upon the walls of the houses. In the sky the Halloween moon raced in and out of the clouds. The Halloween wind was blowing, not a blasting of wind but a right-sized swelling, falling, and gushing of wind. It was a lovely and exciting night, exactly the kind of night Halloween should be.”
Halloween/Samhain Is one of my favorite times of the year. I have many yearly traditions around this time of year including carving up Jack O Lanterns,attending the midnight showing of Rocky Horror Picture Show and watching loads of spooky movies!
The air fees and smells magical. Autumn colors are all around and it’s time to start dragging out jeans,comfy hats and hoodies.

Makeup becomes vampy and dark 🙂
And all of the best movies are on! Do you have favorites you watch around this time of the year??
And don’t forget the special shows! My absolute favorite is Roseanne!! I watch them on repeat every year!!
Ohh glorious candy!!! What did you wish for as a kid?? I always loved Milky Way bars and Kit Kats! Themed treats at parties are always so much fun this time of year! Starbucks drops it’s Pumpkin Spice and Salted Caramel frapps and we all go insane! They also usually have one Halloween themed drink as well,like the Frankenfrap!
“Autumn is a second spring when every leaf is a flower.”
As someone who costumes on the regular Halloween is no exception for me! Here’s some of my favorites over the years that remind me of great times!
Carving the pumpkin is one of my favorite yearly activities. These days we take pumpkin decorating to a whole new level tho! There’s carving of all kinds still but also shaving and painting!
“A pumpkin lives but once a year
when someone sets its soul afire
and on that night it stirs up fear
until its flame is snuffed.
But e’en one night of eerie light is fright enough.”
