No fancy projects to share, no printables, just a holiday greeting. I’m not into horror or any of that but you better believe that I like Halloween. I’m more of a pumpkin everything, cute colors, candy crazed, kind of person. I have an arsenal of animal headband/masks and tails for several animals to use for different Halloween needs (cats (plural, yes), lion, mouse, zebra, etc). I may have even dressed up as the mouse at work today. Really though, I like Halloween for the lighthearted fun. Several years ago I made a few knit Candy Corn with a pattern by Anna Hrachovec. I also made the Sarcofocat shortly after her book Super Scary MochiMochi came out. I have all of her books to date and decided it was time to make a few friends for the candy corn. That is how I celebrate Halloween, with a cute ghostie, candy and cheesy movies.
While we’re on the movie front, here’s a list of my must see Halloween movies;
- It’s The Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown
- Hocus Pocus
- Beatle Juice
- Corpse Bride
- Casper (the one with real people)
- Adams Family
- Adams Family Values
- Scooby Doo (either of the two movies made with real people)
- The Haunting
- Nightmare Before Christmas
- Ghostbusters 1 and 2
There’s a theme here: mostly family friendly movies that have a good amount of cheesiness or silliness. That’s my kind of Halloween. Enjoy it!
