Your Halloween Season Checklist: How Many Boxes Can You Check?
If you don't complete the list, did you even Halloween, bro?
As we get closer to the big day, I'm realizing there are quiet a few traditional things I haven't done yet. Now that Halloween is coming up next week, I'm starting to feel a little stressed. I think this is one surefire way to rob yourself of the joy of a holiday. What's funny is that every year, I tell myself it's going to be different.
Needless to say, my Halloween checklist is very un-checked.
What's on the list, you ask? Well, it's a combination of Halloween traditions on Mental Floss and things that I typically see on social media this time of year. It's like a witch's potion of tradition and whimsy.
