Pumpkins (and pumpkin-flavored things) are everywhere, the leaves are changing, and Fall is Here. Halloween is here, too! Find a Halloween horror night, consider a face painting, or throw it old school and just go to the pumpkin patch for a pumpkin. Here are more ideas for fun dates during this holiday season!
Six Flags Fright Fest
If you love Halloween and you love roller coasters, carnival games and rides, and bad, expensive food, Six Flags is your ultimate Halloween destination. The people there aren’t haunted house, escaped mental patient creepy but they are dressed the part. There are zombies, bloody-looking baby dolls, and witches among the employees. All of them are dressed in fright and have their faces done, too.
Netflix and Scare
That is, scary movies. Name some good ones, 90s, 80s and older. Halloween movies are the best way to celebrate this holiday and season. You can fin them everywhere on TV, Hulu, Netflix, Amazon and more. Hocus Pocus is a favorite and people are always posting about it being on TV or watching it. There are the killer kind of movies like the Halloween series, the super gory blood-bath flicks like the Saw series and more. Plus, you can always throw it back old school into the 80s and before with movies like The Shining, Pyscho, Amityville Horror, and The Exorcist.
It’s cliché, but people love haunted houses. Haunted houses are everywhere in the month of October. You have until the end of the month to find and visit some scare palaces, so start looking today! Find a good one. To up the scare factor, find one that makes you go in, one by one. Also when real people are involved ,it’s more unexpected and also, real people pretending to be creepy, are creepy. So, there’s that. I was also once at a haunted house where they first piled you all into the back of a hearse. I remember laughing but it could have been a nervous laughter…haha.
“Trick or Treat” for Decor
Ok, so it’s really not trick or treating. You don’t go up to anyone’s house or get any treats. Instead, you walk around neighborhoods, scoping out awesome decor and admiring Halloween decorations. Like window shopping but for Halloween decorations.
Make Halloween Cookies
And gift them. People love sweets at Halloween, and not everyone has kids or goes trick-or-treating. So spread some love, by giving cookies. Or keeping them. Or bringing them to work. Whatever reason you have, Halloween cookies are sweet and fun. Sugar cookies and frosting are fun to decorate and style. Add orange and black sprinkles or get icing and write ‘boo’ or ‘ahh!’ You could also get cookie cutters for seasonal shapes and really get creative. Either way, baking together will be a super fun Halloween activity.
Halloween season is the perfect time to visit the pumpkin patch. There are goodies to eat, activities to do, and pumpkins to pick. Not only can you get pumpkins but other seasonal fruits and vegetables, too. And make sure to get carving pumpkins and pie pumpkins. If you get the small “pie” pumpkins, you can make your own pumpkin puree. And for the regular pumpkins, take out the innards and carve the outside. Typical triangles for eyes and a smile works just as well as an intricate design or some text for your pumpkin. Fun all around! Pumpkin patches sometimes feature live music or a hay ride. How better to get into the Halloween spirit?
There are corn mazes throughout the states to visit and get lost, I mean, go through the maze. Just me? Mazes are fun with groups too, and who doesn’t love a great group date? The point is to get in and out of the maze the fastest, or to follow your friends around and make them question their sense of direction, ha.
Getting out and about and going on dates is the best during October, it’s all about Halloween. What are your favorite date night ideas to get you into the Halloween mood? Happy (almost) Halloween!
