Commencing Holiday Season

Today is the first day of October, and the beginning of what I like to call –

HOLIDAY SEASON - (n.) the months of October 1st to January 1st where we celebrate a friggin plethora of holidays from Halloween to New Years.

Now that it’s finally October, it’s time to kick the holiday celebrations into high gear – starting with Halloween. This means it’s time to figure out my costume (I already have a list going), bake delicious themed treats (like candy apples and pumpkin pie, yum!), put up spooky decorations, and . . . read and watch all of my Halloween favorites. Here are just a few of the highlights:

Movies:
Hocus Pocus (My very favorite Halloween movie!!)
Casper
The Witches
Harry Potter
It’s the Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown
The Haunted Mansion
Adams Family
Nightmare Before Christmas
Scooby Doo
Gremlins
Ghostbusters
Sleepy Hallow
Buffy the Vampire Slayer
Dracula 2000
Nightmare on Elm St.
The Craft
The Poltergeist
The Exorcist

Books:
The Witches – Roald Dahl
The Crucible – Nathaniel Hawthorne
Macbeth – William Shakespeare
Harry Potter – J. K. Rowling
Dorian Gray – Oscar Wilde
The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde – Robert Lewis Stevenson
Dracula – Bram Stoker
Frankenstein – Mary Shelley
Gallows Hill – Lois Duncan
And Anything by Edgar Allan Poe – namely The Black Cat, The Pit and the Pendulum, The Fall of the House of Usher, The Raven

As you can see, I REALLY enjoy the holidays, and can’t wait to get into this month’s spooky spirit. So heads up, just about all my blog posts for the next month will be Halloween related. Let the spook-tacular begin, muahhahahaha!

  1. You have some of THE BEST movies on that list. (Absolutely adore Sleepy Hollow.) You should add 13 Ghosts to the mix (the remake, not the original). Or Dawn of the Dead. Also A+ horror movies. ;)
