It is August and in normal years I count down to October 31st. I love Halloween, because the season changes, the spices smell of sweet cinnamon and vanilla aromas. Every year since the 90’s they have had Halloween themed fun houses. Halloween Horror Nights, which is a fan favorite event will be taking a year off. Since our favorite holiday is going to be like no other this year, lets make new spooky traditions.
There are Candies for the kiddies
This morning I was getting eggs from Ralph’s and noticed the new end caps of candy. There is a new kitkat in town: ‘Witches Brew.’ It is a sage green color, flavored with marshmallow cream. Hersey’s is bringing the Halloween goodies straight to our taste buds. They know people are desperate for some sense of normalcy. They will buy candy to give the children that are being ripped off from a normal life. Candy and donuts can fill a void. Candy can make you happy and fat. It is part of the Halloween tradition in America.
Then there are the movies
Horror movies are my jam when it comes to October 31st, or even August 31st, I have been craving my own personal Blockbuster scary movie night. Lets throw out some Netflix movies for your Freight Fest nights: Carrie, Insidious, Hush, The Invitation, In the Tall Grass, The Princess and the Frog, V is For Vendetta, Silence of the Lambs, The Babysitter and Paranormal Activity. Those will be a great start to a very interesting 2020 Halloween.
Then there is Stranger Things
Stranger Things is my comfort food on Netflix. I love homages to the 80’s and Stranger Things brings me closer to my 1980’s Halloween time warp. I wish Season 4 was coming out soon, but with COVID19 everything is postponed/closed. I’ll have to re-visit season 2, which is a Halloween party to remember. It was originally released October 27, 2017.
