Halloween Fest

Oh how I wish I had a Halloween party to go to so I could indulge in a fancy costume and spookily decorated house. In the meantime, I thought I would acknowledge this day with an ode to my favourite things about the spooky season.


Halloween in particular reminds me of the 90’s. Goosebumps books, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Halloween Specials on TV (The Simpsons and Wishbone come to mind) and my favourite horror movies. Sleepy Hollow, Nightmare On Elm Street and Scream, just to name a few.


Fields of pumpkins, crisp autumn air and spooky trees. Bobbing for apples, plastic buckets of candy and orange icing on cupcakes.

The small part of my childhood spent living in the US must have really rubbed off on me. I will always always associate Halloween with fall leaves, decorated pumpkins and the smell of cinnamon.
