9 Reasons Why I Love Halloween

Halloween has always been by far my favorite holiday, don't get me wrong I love Christmas and Easter but there is something about Halloween that just gets me so excited since I was a child. Maybe as a classic Scorpio with a moon in Aquarius im just naturally draw in anything dark and mysterious anything sinister and forbidden. Halloween has a long tradition and it is been celebrated for centuries, some even say that it was around before Christianity. So there you have it. The day of the All Hallows Eve is sacred as it's the day that dead comes back to life. To avoid being recognize by the ghost people wore masks and costumes so that's why we dress up every Halloween. 
But why Halloween is one of the best holidays of the year.


1)Dress Up
It's the time to let you creativity flow. I always been more DIY person especially in Halloween, what's better than creating your own costume and doing your own crazy make-up. Get creative.

2) Express Yourself
Unleash your inner freak, wear whatever you want no one will judge you. You wanna dress up as a banana with heel go for it. Express yourself, be as creative as you can and have the time of your life.

3)Be a child again
Halloween is one of the few holiday that is not just for kids but for adults too. Re-create your childhood memories.

4) Prank
I love pranking people so this time of the year you have it coming. Prank your friends, family, housemates. Give them the fright of their life it' Halloween.

5)Sexy
Even though I always go for scary I like to know that sexy is still an option. It's the only time of the year to put on that sexy leotard with a pair of knee high boots and kill it on dancefloor. Any other day you will be mistaken for drag queen that lost her way through soho and ended up in Mayfair.

6)Horror
I am a massive horror fan so I cannot wait, to watch as many horror movies possible. Tell ghost stories and maybe visit any haunted mansions

7)Party
It's the only holiday where you can spend it with your friends without feeling that you bailed on your family. Party with your mates until the sunrise. It's only once a year anyways.

8)Dark
Halloween is the celebration of the paranormal of the forbidden,no one really knows it's origin there many myths around it, but nothing for certain.

9)Sweets
It's the perfect excuse to eat as many sweets as you please it's halloween after all.


Happy Halloween
Have a scaryyyyy one!!!

  7. Oh yes, Halloween is full of fan! It's a pity that it's not that popular in Europe. People don't dress up and it doesn't feel the same here. I've spent a few Halloweens in Las Vegas and that has been so fantastic!

  31. I also like Halloween, I like getting all dressed up and wearing a witchy make-up without anyone turning their heads after me on the street. Unfortunately this year I'll be in Spain on holiday for Halloween so I won't be celebrating.
