Our Halloween traditions aren’t necessarily as set-in-stone as our Christmas ones are, but there are a few things I have to do every year, or it just doesn’t feel like the spookiest time of the year. Continue reading “Halloween Traditions”
Your plan was to sit at home, binge watch as many Halloween movies as possible, and pass out candy to trick-or-treaters. But then your sister texts you and tells you your niece and nephew want you to come trick-or-treating with them. Obviously you say yes (it won’t last forever, sadly) but you’re in a pinch; you don’t have a costume!
Or maybe your after work plans are still the same, but you just got notified that you are allowed to wear a costume to work the next day! Being the Festive Franny that you are, you can’t not wear one when you finally just got allowed to, so now you have to scramble and put something together!

I mean, my regular DVD’s are in alphabetical order, but again, I have an entirely separate binder for my holiday movies. That’s how many there are.
