Halloween is just about 3 weeks away and it’s time to get into the spooky spirit (if you haven’t already). Here are ten ways you can feel festive and celebrate the upcoming holiday.
1 – Pick out some pumpkins and carve them. Put battery-operated candles in them to make them last even longer. Display your pumpkins on your porch, patio or balcony.
2 – Have a scary movie marathon. Whether you like the horror movies like A Nightmare on Elm Street or the silly cult classics like Hocus Pocus, carve out (see what we did there) some time this weekend to watch your favorites!
3 – Watch a Halloween-inspired baking show (like Halloween Baking Championship on Food Network) and test your novice skills baking a Halloween dish!
4 – Head down to your local costume shop and pick out a costume. Even if you aren’t attending a party this year, it’s fun to dress up to hand out candy to trick or treaters.
5 – Speaking of trick or treaters, get in the spirit early by picking up some fun-sized treats to hand out at your door. Feeling really crafty? Try putting together some fun mini gift bags for your neighbors who will be visiting.
6 – Throw an impromptu costume party! Invite a few friends over and get dressed up in your spooky-best. Hand out awards for the scariest, most creative and silliest costumes.
9 – Have a pet? Help them get festive by getting them a Halloween costume this year.
10 – Last but certainly not least, take a trip to Salem, MA! You will certainly feel in the Halloween spirit by visiting the Salem Witch Museum or attending Salem Horror Fest. While you’re in town, visit our friends at Princeton Crossing and say hi!
