Happy Halloween! + Three Ways To Celebrate

Happy Halloween! + Three Ways To Celebrate

Happy freaking Halloween, witches! The spookiest day of the year is finally here. What are your Halloween plans? 

We’re going to snuggle up on the couch with a pad thai and The Shining, and pretend we’re not home when trick-or-treaters come knocking. 

It’s not like I hate trick-or-treating, it’s just that come 5pm, I’m usually in some form of pyjamas and in full relaxation mode… a.k.a. I’m in no way presentable enough to answer my front door. Sorry, kids!

But what are you getting up to this evening? Are you going trick-or-treating with your family, or are you spending it at home like me? Or, maybe, you’ve got a better social life than us all and are heading out for a Halloween party?!

Lemme know so I can live vicariously through you!

In case you have no plans for tonight – I’ve got you boo. Here are three ways to celebrate Halloween if you’ve left it to the absolute last minute.

WATCH A SCARY MOVIE AT HOME

Whether you’re a Scream fan or are after something with a little more haunt-factor, there’s sure to be something you can watch at home. As I said before, we’re going to watch The Shining {a.k.a. two and a half hours of terror!!}, but if you’re not into that, I recommend IT, the Scream series, The Silence of the Lambs, Hush, Halloween, When a Stranger Calls, Get Out, A Quiet Place, The Ring, Texas Chainsaw Massacre, One Missed Call and Prom Night? They’re all of my go-to films when I want to be spooked!

WATCH A SCARY MOVIE AT THE CINEMA

Okay, this technically piggy-backs off the last idea, but hear me out. The final Halloween instalment is out in cinemas RIGHT NOW, and any vintage horror fans will tell you that it’s such a brilliant film. We went and watched it over the weekend with an armful of popcorn and way too much soda, and it was such a fun experience. I used to shy away from seeing scary movies at the cinema, but this is one that you just *have* to see on the big screen. I’d recommend securing your tickets online, though, because everyone will have the same Halloween evening plans!

READ A SCARY BOOK BY CANDLELIGHT

After we’ve finished watching The Shining, I’m going to head upstairs, light a bunch of candles, and read a spooky book in bed. My top contenders for this evening are A Stranger in the House by Shari Lapena and The Caller by Chris Carter, however I highly recommend The Snowman by Jo Nesbo, Final Girls by Riley Sager and The Chalk Man by CJ Tudor. 


I hope I gave you some ideas on how to celebrate Halloween! Make sure to let me know your plans in the comments below, and keep up with all of the spooky content I’m sharing over on my instagram right now.
