What made you love Halloween so strongly?
Halloween is the one thing that has always been able to put a smile on my face, regardless of what else is going on. The feeling that Halloween gives me is so strong that it can cure anything that ails me. I love everything about Halloween, it just makes me feel like myself.
How did you get into Halloween ?
I have always been into Halloween, it has always been my favorite holiday. However, when I was about 12 or 13 years old, I was trick or treating on a crisp Halloween night, happier than I ever had been, and I said to myself “I don’t want this night to ever end.” And from that point on, everyday was Halloween for me J
What is your favorite things to do on/around halloween ?
I love shopping for new Halloween décor, especially now that I have my own place to decorate. Decorating the bathroom is one of my favorite places to decorate, believe it or not. I can’t wait to have a house one day and create my own haunted house that all of the trick-or-treaters can come to on and around Halloween night. I love to dress up as well, it is always a long process to decide what I want to be each year, but looking through all of my costume options gives me such excitement. Everything Halloween related is my favorite honestly lol, picking pumpkins, carving pumpkins, going to Fall festivals, handing out candy on Halloween night, watching scary movies, going to haunted attractions, ghost walks. I love it all, and I just can’t get enough of Halloween!!
Can you remeber which Halloween costume was your favourtite one?
One year I was “Frankie’s Girl,” which is basically the bride of Frankenstein, but for preteens. I loved this costume so much because it was the first time I was really able to pick out a costume I loved and my mom bought it for me. Before that, she always wanted me to be something like a princess or something “pretty,” while I always wanted to go the more gruesome route. My Frankie’s Girl costume was so spooky looking, I had a long white dress that was torn and dirty, as if I had been crawling out of a grave, and I had an awesome tall black and white wig. My mom even let me put on spooky makeup, I was truly in Halloween heaven that year.
What does Halloween mean to you?
To me, Halloween means that you can be anything you want, and not just for one night, but for the whole Halloween season (which is all year for me lol). Not only can you dress up, but you can create a world that is different than the one you’re living. You can essentially live in a haunted house, drive a haunted car, or even be a ghost. Halloween gives you the ability to be anything you want to be, and for us spooky people, nothing means more than that.
Of all the amazing Halloween candy you can get now adays , what is your favourite? ( Old Classics/ New style candy etc )
What a hard question! I am a candy fanatic, especially when it has a Halloween wrapper on it. But I’d have to say that my absolute favorite is orange Halloween Kit Kats. They are so tasty, and the orange makes it even better. I also love Reese’s cups and Take 5 bars a lot. When I was a kid trick-or-treating in my Nana’s neighborhood, there was a house that always gave out Juice boxes, and I remember loving that so much. After hours of trick-or-treating, you could finally have a nice tasty drink. I also had a neighbor who handed out Halloween shaped pretzels, those were exciting to get too. I like to pack full treat bags of Halloween goodies for the trick-or-treaters. I fill the bags with candy (of course), and other Halloween goodies that I usually buy from Party City. It is so worth it to see the huge smile on a kid’s face when they see that they are getting much more than just one piece of candy.
What Halloween food and drinks are you most excited about?
I love to make new Halloween recipes every year, but my go to recipes are Halloween cookies/cupcakes, and some sort of spooky punch or cider drink!
When do you start shopping for Halloween ?
As soon as the stores have something!! So usually around May. However, I am lucky enough to have some stores near me that carry Halloween items all year long, so I’m always shopping!
What about halloween makes it your favorite holiday?
Absolutely everything, the holiday itself is so great, even if I had no money, I could still fully enjoy the Halloween season.
Do you think it has any negative sides to it?
What is the Favorite Halloween item you have?
Wow that’s another tough one, I’d have to say it’s my Wolfman animatronic, which is the first one I have ever owned.
Do you still go trick or treating?
Yes and no. I don’t go out asking for candy usually, but I do go out on a nice walk through a heavily decorated neighborhood on Halloween night with my man, which almost feels like trick-or-treating J
Can you remember your first Halloween memory?
My very first Halloween memory was when I was probably 4 or 5 years old. My elementary school always had a Halloween parade every year. All of the kids from all grades would dress up and parade around the school, it was so much fun! My first parade was in kindergarten, and I was a pink Power Ranger
