With Halloween just around the corner, now is a wonderful time to get excited for the holiday. Though last month may have been a good option, too. If it is acceptable for people to be getting ready for Christmas in November, it can be acceptable to get ready for Halloween in September.

Just thinking of getting ready for the holiday is an easy way to get excited about it. For example, a few ways to get into the Halloween mood could be working on pulling together a costume or planning out what to carve into a pumpkin for your own jack-o-lantern. For Zoe Graves and Miranda Butler, the best part of Halloween is getting to dress up. Miranda is even working on two different costumes of Jack Skellington and Alice Angel; she will settle on whichever one is finished first. Their plans for the spooky holiday consist of decorating and going to Halloween parties–a bit different from the years before of trick-or-treating, carving pumpkins, and costume parties.

Sometimes even a movie themed around the holiday, or horror movies in general, are wonderful at getting people in the Halloween spirit as well. While my favorite movie for the holiday is The Addams Family, Zoe loves watching Hocus Pocus to get ready for Halloween while Miranda has her picks of Corpse Bride, Coraline, and The Nightmare Before Christmas. “I like Hocus Pocus because of the talking cat, how old it is, and the sisters in general,” Zoe said, while Miranda liked the animation and art style of her favorites.

Looking beyond Halloween, Zoe is also looking forward to taking advantage of the sales on candy after Halloween is over.
