Celebrating Halloween and Samhain with this gorgeous cemetery photoshoot and my favorite things about Halloween.
Honestly the best part of Halloween is the weather. It is finally cooler outside after the scorching summer heat and humidity. The leaves are beautiful colors of orange, red and yellow. With the sun setting so early and the continuous fall breeze, it adds to the eerie elements of the holiday. Not to mention the delightful smell of dead leaves and the earth cooling.
Halloween is the only holiday I decorate for, which means I tend to go a little overboard with shopping. Walking into numerous stores and seeing all the creepy black, orange and white-colored decor really gets me going. I am not much for the gory, horror side of Halloween, but I prefer the black cats and owls!
Classic Halloween Movies
The Nightmare Before Christmas, Hocus Pocus, Beetlejuice, Halloweentown, The Craft, The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina…I could go on, but I adore creepy movies such as these. There are so many Halloween movies to watch it is hard to fit them in all in one month, which is why I watch them all year round!
