Everybody loves Halloween! We know that because the spooky holiday keeps spreading every year, infecting people all over the world with the trick-or-treat bug. But what exactly are our reasons to love Halloween? We took the time to make a short list that you can find below. Oh, and you can also find a Halloween gift that will make you love it (and us 😉 ) even more!
1. Dressing up as your favorite character
Most of us wait a whole year for the opportunity to dress like Harry Potter, Marilyn Monroe, or Fred Flintstone. Some of us take Halloween even more seriously and prepare horror costumes, such as Hannibal Lecter or Ghostface. Halloween is a time when we happily give up any feeling of social awkwardness and live the lives of our favorite characters for one night. ?
2. Decorating… everything
Everybody knows Christmas isn’t the only time when we’re allowed to go crazy and decorate our house with all sorts of things, to give it a seasonal feel. Halloween decorations are also very fun to display and to make on your own, if you have a little bit of time on your hands. Carving your own jack-o-lantern can be very rewarding, even if the final product is nothing like what you had in mind in the first place. ?
3. Trick or treating with friends
Come on, everyone knows this one. There’s no Halloween without at least a little bit of trick-or-treating. No spooky party can start until you’ve earned some candy or played a trick on someone. Age is not a factor here. Babies enjoy trick-or-treating as much as their grandparents! ?
4. Scary movie marathons
Have you seen ‘Saw’? Or classics like ‘Friday the 13th’ and ‘Chucky’? Well… Halloween is the best time to catch up with the newest or oldest horror movies. Stay inside, draw the curtains, and let the movies play. Don’t forget to lock the door and unplug the phone. Who knows who could… RING? ?
5. Season’s treats
That pumpkin pie is D-E-L-I-C-I-O-U-S! But so are the gummy vampire teeth, the spider cupcakes, and Dracula’s blood punch. Besides, candy is the most popular Halloween treat, as one quarter of all the candy sold annually in the U.S. is purchased during this time. Halloween is definitely a sweet holiday… ?
