For most of us, Halloween might look a little different this year. Depending on where you live, it may still not be safe to celebrate Halloween in the way you usually do, due to COVID-19. Just because you may not be going out to bars or squishing up against a stranger dressed in a Napoleon Dynamite getup, doesn’t mean Halloween can’t be exciting. Embrace the season like you did as a kid by treating yourself to a spooky, self care inspired night. Skip the party your friends are pressuring you to go to, and instead spend the night the way you would really like to. Keep reading for some of my socially distanced Halloween ideas.
Halloween movie marathon
One of the best parts of the Halloween season is cuddling up on the couch and watching nostalgic Halloween movies (my personal favorite being Halloweentown). Make your movie night festive by adding spooky decorations, munching on seasonal snacks, and lounging in Halloween inspired pajamas. Some of my favorite childhood Halloween memories include watching “scary” Disney movies with my sister and my friends. Even as an adult, I still love watching those movies because it brings back so many memories.
Have a Halloween bonfire
The crisp air makes Fall the perfect time for a bonfire. Enjoy Halloween night by crafting your own bonfire. Invite a couple friends and family over to sit around the campfire eating S’mores and telling scary stories.
Turn your Halloween celebration into a fun, crafty soiree by having a cookie decorating night. Grab some sprinkles, frosting, and a couple of friends to decorate cookies with. Add cool designs and festive toppings so that your treats look as good as they taste.
Make Halloween cocktails/mocktails
I don’t know about you, but I love a themed drink! There’s something so fun and exciting about making your own beverage (even sans alcohol!). There is a plethora of options out there, so no matter what your pallet prefers, you are bound to create the perfect drink for you. Make your drink extra festive by giving it a Halloween themed name like “Dracula’s Daiquiri” or “Frankenstein’s Fireball.”
As of now my plans include watching Halloweentown and devouring my Halloween themed treats! I’m hoping to sip on a spooky cocktail while decorating sugar cookies. How do you plan on spending Halloween this year?
