Halloween soon! What are you looking forward the most in Halloween?

Recommended Posts

Oh boy it's going to be Halloween soon!  One of my favourite Holidays.  I sure hope you guys love Halloween too!  If not, that's ok no biggie.

I look forward to trick or treating my neighbours and grabbing a handful of candy from them, because I love delicious (heart-attack inducing) candies.  I think I will just be wearing my Devils Horns and tricking people with my Devils Fork.

Do you guys look forward to Halloween as well?  What costume are you going to wear on Halloween?

Looking forward to my kid filling a bucket with candy that I get to stuff my face with.

You eventually reach a point in life where its no longer appropriate for you to go trick or treating. Then you reach a point in life where you can force your kid to do it for you.

Also...watching Nightmare Before Christmas AS MANY times as possible. Aaaand little dude is gonna get to watch it and probably enjoy/be scared of it for the first time ever this year. Prior to this year he kinda wasn't...aware enough to watch movies.

House has been decorated for this since the middle of September. Only thing I enjoy more than Halloween decorating is Christmas decorating.

I'll totally shamelessly send a pic later.

HeheThat's a good idea ?? using your kid as a mule, nice tip when I reach parenthood.  I do not frequently watch movies so I will add a to-do list to watch Nightmare Before Christmas, since I never saw the title before, I hope the film adds more atmosphere before Halloween ?.  Are you prepared to hand out candies to other children as well?

Honestly our first year living in our house we were super excited, bought a bunch of candy to hand it out, and literally got zero "customers"

We even got a pirate costume for our puppy so he could greet kids at the door. We were super bummed.

So...we just go get candy from others now.

And yea, if you've literally never even HEARD of The Nightmare Before Christmas, definitely give it a watch. Its a classic. Your welcome.

? Who does not want free candy from a nice neighbour?  I will definitely watch The Nightmare Before Christmas (1993), thanks for recommending it to me!  Also, have you seen this horror film called Annihilation (2018) from Netflix?  That is my favourite horror fim, what is your favourite horror film?

What is your trick for your neighbours if they refuse treat?  A fake syringe ? ?

I hope everyone will enjoy Halloween this year, especially the joys of fear and horrors around the corner, and probably will go smoothly for everyone ?!

I know that feel, worse here, as the past few years winter encroaches on Halloween, making it even less appealing for parents to want to drag their children outside. This year will hopefully be ok, as we are projecting warmer than average weather for the last end of October, but we've been hooped before.

Asking which horror film is my favorite cuz its such a loaded question for me cuz like...if I wanted to pick which one I think deserves the most "respect" and hence deserve my vote, it would be Alien or The Shining. If I wanted to pick which movies I'd always sit down and watch over and over again its the Friday the 13th movies. If I wanted to pick which one SCARED me the most, and this is based on the age I was when the movie came out, I'd say The Ring. I feel like The Ring coined the whole "horrifying little girl with supernatural powers" that has been used in SO many places since.

Staying indoor can be fun too in October!  Have you played the board game called 'Betrayal At House On The Hill'?  If you want some idea what the board game is about, it is like the film 'Cabin In The Woods (2012)', a lot of dark omen items for survivers to trigger the haunting event.  Worth a try!

That is a good point, I guess one can never really choose one favourite film in a genre, as it would imply one cannot love two things equally in the same genre, which is not true!  Annihilation is one of my favourite horror film because I enjoy thriller and mystery, and I also find Cabin In The Woods (2012) to be my favourite horror film because it makes fun of horror cliches.

We don't really have a strong Halloween tradition here, no one trick or treats. We do have a pretty big day of the dead Zombie Walk, but it's been years since I last went to it. 

We do have some costume parties thou, mainly an Anglo Halloween influence. I used to go to them a lot back in the day when I was married, because my wife loved them. But I haven't gone to one since my wife left.

Since someone mention it, I'm really looking forward to Christmas thou. All my family get together, eat good food, best holiday of the year. I think the Americans do that on thanksgiving for some reason, but here we do it on Christmas.

Ring was indeed pretty good, I remember when it launched people would prank call their friends right after they watched it, saying seven days and hang up, people kinda knew it wasn't real but would get scarred as shit. 

As a bonus, me rocking a Frank'n'Further costume (from The Rocky Horror Picture Show (1975)) :

I think it would be a good idea to go out with your friends in the middle of a week!  Of course, if you are going to be busy next day then maybe invite your friends over to your home (or meet them online) to celebrate Halloween by watching scary movies and/or playing scary games together.  Perhaps try out this boardgame called 'Eldritch Horror' made by Fantasy Flight Games, it is based on H.P. Lovecraft's Cthulhu Mythos.

Being with family is the most important thing, and any time is a good time to be with them. 

I never saw 'The Rocky Horror Picture Show (1975)', so I will now add it to my to-watch list.  Also, WOW ? You are amazing for your commitment in dressing up the part!  Did you have fun in that costume?  What were the reactions from other people?

I never tried carving a Jack O' Laterns.  Is it usually difficult?  How many Jack O' Laterns will you be making  ? ?

In the USA its actually traditional to get together on Thanksgiving AND Christmas b̶e̶c̶a̶u̶s̶e̶ ̶w̶e̶ ̶a̶r̶e̶ ̶f̶a̶t̶.̶

Thanksgiving definitely my favorite food Holiday tho. OOF. THE FOOD COMA. Glances at the calendar. IT APPROACHES.

But honestly for me, between Thanksgiving-New Years is just a month plus of friends and family getting together to have fun and eat. Can't fit it all into just 2 days so we spread it out over the month.

Back to Halloween...in my youth the kids would just run around on thier own. Due to times changing, there is a NEW tradition where parents tend to tag along now, and the funny (and best) part about that is its not uncommon for the parents to have bottle of wine or a 6 pack as they stroll.

BTW, kudos to @Bread1...the conversation this post is generating is fantastic, and you started it. Getting me really psyched for the holidays. Morso than usual.

Gloves will do the trick!  ?  Or is it not just using your hand to scoop its content out...?

? I did not know it was common for parents to drink while they stroll with their kids, but I guess parents must have some sort of fun too?.

I am glad that my fondness of Halloween is making you ready to enjoy your holiday!

Common is a relative term...but maybe like...one out of every 4-6 groups of people there are drinkers...and in my neighborhood there are literally some people who give candy to the kids and shots to the adults.
