5 Fandom Friday: Things I Love About Halloween

The last two weeks have been crazy busy for me so I almost felt too tired to prepare my 5 Fandom Friday post for this week… until I remembered that it involved Halloween.  Since I don’t really have any specific traditions I figured I would shake up the topic and talk about the 5 things I love most about the holiday.  What are you most looking forward to this year? Any costume ideas yet? Once Andrew and I have our own place I am committing to a yearly over the top Halloween BASH.


1) CANDY! – This is clearly the best part of Halloween, no contest! Last year, we did a 5 Fandom Friday post about our favorite Halloween candy and my previous ranking still stands.  I hope my day is full of Take5’s, Reese’s Pumpkins and Cadbury Screme Eggs.


2) SCARY MOVIES! – All of the Halloween plans Andrew and I were invited to this year ended up being in other states and since we’re saving for a wedding / commuting 5 days a week, the idea of traveling just wasn’t appealing to us so we’re going to spend the day relaxing together and marathoning Halloween movies and eating candy.  I’m also planning on baking a pie.


3) COSTUMES! – I love seeing what people come up with for Halloween costumes.  There are always some really creative ideas circulating the internet and I love perusing through photos when I have the time.  I also love seeing what kids are dressed up as when they come around the neighborhood trick-or-treating.  Last year, we had a TON of Elsa’s so I’m curious what “the” costume is this year. Kids dressed as comic book characters get extra candy.


4) PUMPKINS! – In addition to pumpkin flavored treats, I also love seeing everyone’s homes adorned with my favorite seasonal food.  We went pumpkin picking and painted our own pumpkins last weekend (mine is Harry Potter and Andrew’s brother Joe painted a flawless Bob from Bob’s Burgers) and Andrew even carved a classic Jack-o-Lantern for the porch.  


5) IT’S ALMOST CHRISTMAS! – As much as I love Halloween, which holds second place for best holiday of every year, the day has nothing on Christmas!  Once November hits, even the grumpiest people seem more open to putting up with my overly enthusiastic Christmas cheer so I look forward to that every year.

    Love carving pumpkins as well! I wish I had a bigger stoop or I’d have way more than three.
