Halloween is an annual holiday observed on October 31. It has roots in the Celtic festival of Samhain and the Christian holiday All Saints' Day, but is today largely a secular celebration.
So, I would have looooved to have gone crazy, put some contests up for y'all to win some 'treats' but I don't have anything good to give you, except a promise that this time next year I will do a rocking week of treats running up to Halloween. This year (this week) is just going to be random convos of the 'spooky-ish' kind.
So to kick start this week lets talk about what everyone is planning on doing for this halloween.
I will be having a scary movie night with my family (slightly dull I know but it's kind of a tradition). Although it is very hard for people to sit through a horror movie with me, I tend to give a running commentary on any and every film since a lot of them are daft in one way or another but most of the time the family just love laughing at me due to my comments so... fun for all! I don't actually have a fave scary movie either which is pretty bad.
Sometimes we do dress up, but it seems daft to do so when you're just sat watching a film, so we stopped doing that. The best part of Halloween though is getting to eat candy (I loooove candy!) and you can so get away with eating loads, because hey, it's Halloween, the one time you can eat candy for breakfast, lunch and dinner.
(Trying to do the 'scream' voice) What's your favourite scary movie? - And what are you doing this year? Hopefully something a little more exciting than me.
