It’s Time To Get Into The Halloween Spirit!
Getting into the Halloween spirit means more than figuring out the most creative way to look slutty and drinking the night away while dancing with a giant penis. Don’t get me wrong, do all that too, but in the final week until All Hallow’s Eve, make sure take part in other festive activities in honor of the best holiday of the YEAR.
Pumpkin picking and carving are not just for kids and their families. I’ve seen some pretty great pumpkins glowing from dorm room windows. For instance, the person who carved this Patrick Swayze memorial pumpkin is definitely getting lucky on Halloween night by glow of Patrick’s face. Pumpkin carving is a fun group activity and just another reason to sip a few cocktails on a weeknight. Oh, and you can’t forget that picking a pumpkin means having something to throw at your ex-boyfriend’s door come mischief night. Do you know how long it takes clean up pumpkin goo? That’ll show him.
After you have your fair share of mischief, hide out at the nearest movie theater and take in a showing of The House of the Devil, releasing on Oct. 30th. Described as a “wet dream for horror fans,” you may or may not leave the theater screaming, in tears and donning some wet undies. Nothing like a mild heart attack to get you in the Halloween spirit.
Also, it would be in your best interest to Google the phrase “haunted corn maze” and see if there are any results in your area. A late night trip to a corn maze may seem lame, but believe me, it’s exhilarating, especially if you pregame it. It’s like your very own version of The Blair Witch Project, but better because you won’t be nauseated by the poor camera skills.
Halloween is like my birthday – I don’t celebrate it all in one day. Celebrations will start tomorrow night, so it’s best to throw yourself headfirst into the Halloween spirit (or a nice big punchbowl full of Halloween spirits…). Just make sure you have one costume for every night of the week.
A costume-repeat? That’s just frightening.
