I wish I could come celebrate Halloween at your house. We haven't done anything!

Nope, I celebrate it all week, if not all month! I miss the days of halloween parties and parades in elementary. My favorite part is definitely the parties and the candy corn involved. :)

Also, this post reminded me that I've GOT to find someone with a copy of Hocus Pocus.

To be honest, my favorite part of Halloween week is my birthday! I was born on Halloween and love all things Halloween!

I swear I was about to write "it's good to be busy!" Then I remembered how stressed out I am about school and thought I would feel like a hypocrite... School work is not too fun when it's too much. Movie watching is, though!

I wish I had Halloween to celebrate. It's hardly a holiday here. Also, I want to taste candy corn.

i do not think a week of halloween is strange!

i think i am a little bit strange for wanting to do the free month of netflix trial offer just so i can order nonstop halloween movies blockbuster doesn't carry. i have some issues, clearly.

I usually give it a the entire weekend but I love the sounds of a Halloween week! But I love getting into my costume and frolicking around. Its the best!

Excellent movie selection!
I give it a week too :) My nails are orange and black leading up to the day!
I plan on making a ton of Halloween cookies this week.

elise-elementary halloween was THE BEST, i can't wait to live vicariously through my children! haha
D'Rae-what good day to be born! my niece was born on halloween too and she's obsessed. i love it!
Johanna-i feel sad for you! someday you should come to the US in october and celebrate!
e.day-you and i are cut from the same cloth! that is so something i would do. do you have any movie suggestions?
S-lucky! i wish my nails were orange and black. i just took off some chipped maroon and now they're just yucky yellow!

If you add Practical Magic and The VIllage to that list then we'd have the same list - Alice in Wonderland, but I like the suggestion! The costumes in The Othes as well as the sets are just as good as the suspense, Rear Window too!
I hope you feel perfectly healthy soon, Happy Halloween!
