6 Ways To Get In The Halloween Spirit


Halloween has soon become one of my favourite times of year as there's so much to do and a great excuse to get together with friends and family as it appeals to people of any age. So I thought I would share my favourite things to do at this time of year.

1. Carve Pumpkins
Every year I look forward to carving into the biggest pumpkin I can find and making it look terrifying even though mine always ends up looking slightly cuter or cheeky I don't know why! But never the less gets me in the spirit. Plus just the feel of scooping out the squelchy insides is enough to feel gory! (Or is that just me!) 

2. Dress Up
Unless your going to a party or fright night this is probably a bit harder as I'm definitely not suggesting dressing up as a vampire or zombie on Halloween and going to do your shopping - unless that's what floats your boat obvs - but I am a massive fan of the t-shirts and jumpers that highstreet stores release with the cute little puns. I got mine from NewLook with a little ghost that says Boooootiful which I thought was proper cute! There are loads available and can easily be styled to suit whatever you may be doing even if it's just a day at college!

3. A Halloween Party 
I can't remember the last time I went to a proper Halloween party but I ALWAYS have a little gathering at least where we eat a lot of food, have some gory Halloween sweet treats and watch scary movies. It's a great excuse to get together whilst also celebrating the season.

4. A Scare Night
This is my absolute favourite thing about Halloween! This is when farms or forests create scare mazes where people essentially jump out at you and scare you. One of the most raved about is Tulleys Farm which I would love to go to but is a bit far from where I live but there are some great ones usually close to everyone's local area.

5. Halloween Films
I don't think I have ever had a Halloween without watching Hocus Pocus which is an absolute classic. I'm not a massive fan of horror movies as I find them a bit boring even though I do watch them I much prefer the Halloween related films so you can find something to suit everyone. TV series are also great such as Stranger Things or The Vampire Diaries which never seem to fail me.

6. Halloween Baking
This is my favourite past time so at Halloween its the perfect excuse to make endless ghoulish cakes and biscuits but if you're not a fan of baking you can also get some pretty good already made ones from your local supermarket. Pinterest is a great place to look for ideas. 

Finally...

HAPPY HALLOWE'EN!!
