Spooky season is here; however, it’s been met with a little less fanfare this year considering reality at the moment is about as spooky as it gets. Between news headlines, the upcoming election, and the current state of the world, it seems like a month that features an event known for mask wearing (sounds alright) and traipsing around to strangers’ homes (wait, no) is not being received quite the way it used to be.
That being said, it’s difficult to resist the siren call of the fall, with its changing leaves and pumpkin spice everything. ‘Tis a time of year for fake cobwebs and ghost stories and eating a whole fun-size bag of Reese’s all in one sitting. It’s like the prequel to Hygge, served with a spike in blood sugar. How quaint!
Although the current state of *gestures wildly* everything is spooky enough to last a lifetime, you won’t find us pulling away from the traditions that have us dressing up and gorging ourselves silly on tricks and treats. And although this Halloween will undoubtedly look different, we’re still hype for all things ghostly, creepy, and spooky.

3. Welp, I think a demon must live there.
Your 12-foot skeleton and the animatronic werewolf covered in blood aren’t half as scary as your neighbor’s TRUMP sign.

4. Maybe they miss eating… specifically, ravioli and tinned beans.
Why do poltergeists always open kitchen cupboards? Like they use their energy to transcend the ethereal plane just to say BAM LOOK AT ALL YOUR CANNED GOODS

5. IT’S JUST SO LONELY YA KNOW *cries in 2020*.
It doesn’t even have to be haunted. At this point I’d pay money to go inside any house that’s not my own.

6. They’re otherworldly creatures, true monsters!

9. It really is. HELP!
Spooky scary skeletons
Send shivers down your spine
But thirsty kids awake all night
Will make you lose your mind
Shrieking skulls will shock your soul
Seal your doom tonight
Those thirsty kids will pee their beds
Parenting is the ultimate fright

10. I think I just hyperventilated, not gonna lie.
A haunted house, but one room is just a list of nine phone numbers you have to call to schedule appointments for which you're overdue and for which email or text is not an option
