When I was little, I joined in on all the Halloween hooplah because the candy was delicious and the Disney princess costume options were endless. Now that I am almost 20, I have fallen into the category of someone who is "not a Halloween person".
I don't love dressing up in costumes and I don't really have a good reason besides just being un-creative in the fashion department to throw something together. I also am not crazy about consuming large amounts of candy...I'd really rather have a smoothie. Is that weird?
I'm really excited to be co-hosting this #galpalholiday link-up with Classy Cathleen and Seashells and Sparkles and wouldn't you know it - the first post is Witches, Gouls, and Goblins.
So, for all you non-Halloween people, I've devised a list of 31 ways to celebrate if you're not a total zombie lover. Enjoy! Be sure to check the end of the post and see all of the other posts involved in this linkup (a.k.a some great Halloween-inspired recipes, the dish on scary movies, and some costume ideas, too!) And don't forget to visit Rachel and Cathleen's blogs!
So here you go ya'll - 31 ways to celebrate if you're not partying or trick-or-treating:
- carve pumpkins
- watch a romantic comedy instead of a scary movie
- put on a face mask and declare it your "Halloween costume"
- bake something festive
- wear Halloween pajamas around the house
- paint your nails like candy corn
- watch a Disney channel Halloween movie (Twitches is pretty scary, yeah?)
- hand out candy to trick-or-treaters
- be a designated driver for your friends (wear your vampire fangs to be extra festive)
- invite all your other "anti-Halloween" friends over for a movie night
- wear a really nice all-black and edgy outfit to dinner out
- take advantage of deals going on at restaurants for the holiday
- START DECORATING FOR CHRISTMAS
- watch Elf instead of a Halloween movie
- go buy the on-sale candy and stuff your face
- light all your fall candles and soak in a bubble bath
- do your homework and declare that letting your GPA drop is pretty teeth-chattering, scary stuff
- call your grandma and have a nice, long chat
- do a good deed such as baking some Halloween cookies for your neighbors
- watch fall Youtube tutorials
- organize your closet and say you were just making sure the boogeyman wasn't in it
- perfect an at-home pumpkin spice latte
- go to the gym and do a treadmill sprint workout (pretend to be running from zombies)
- start scoping out what you want to get at the Black Friday sale (you can never be too prepared)
- go to Panera and get one of the fall soups and a pumpkin cookie
- go to a pumpkin patch or apple orchard
- make healthy fall treats
