I got a random burst of inspiration to write this post after posting my latest Instagram, it seems a lot of people don’t really make plans for this day or aren’t that bothered by Halloween at all. And I get that as after all, it’s a very American holiday but I love making any occasion special so I’ve listed a few activities below that are fun and easy to do and give a slight nod to today.
Who doesn’t like making a mess in the kitchen? I made these sweet biscuits (above) and had so much fun icing them. It doesn’t even have to be baking, it could just be making a slightly more seasonal dinner, something like toad in the hole? I don’t know if you’ve noticed but it is freezing outside and there’s nothing like getting cosy and eating all the carbs.
Watching a Scary Film/Tv Series –
This one is kind of obvious but it’s a classic. I’m very into the idea of watching A Nightmare before Christmas on Halloween as it combines both Halloween and Christmas (which I will be fully celebrating starting tomorrow, Christmas jumper included). My Bf and I have also been really enjoying Netflix’s “The Haunting of Hill House“. It is scary, but not outrageously so and I need to find out what happened.
I’ve had a Halloween playlist on all afternoon, thanks to good old Spotify and really, you need to embrace Halloween as when else can you listen to classics such as the monster mash?
A Seasonal Walk –
When I was little, my brother, sister and I would always watch the trick or treaters from a window in our house as we loved seeing the street all lit up and everyone’s costumes! I think
I’m also a massive fan of just turning all the lights out, lighting a million candles and hiding from all the trick and treaters whilst eating chocolate.
However you’re spending Halloween, make sure you stay safe and have a good night!
What are your plans for tonight?
