31 Days of Halloween: Happy October Plus My Halloween Bucket List


Happy October, fiends, and welcome to the most wonderful time of the year, the October countdown to Halloween! I've participated in the "31 Days of Halloween" since 2010 (you can check out past posts here), but this year is going to be a bit different...unlike past years I won't be posting every day, but will try my best to bring you a Halloween treat as often as possible!

You can also keep up with my Halloween adventures on Instagram, Twitter, Facebook, Tumblr and Pinterest!

I also wanted to share with you my bucket list of things I want to do this wonderful season! I'm sure I've missed a few things and I know I won't be able to get to everything on the list, but here is my bucket list so far for autumn:

  • Drink fresh-pressed apple cider

  1. Watch Halloween III, listen to the Misfits/Samhain and go to as many haunted houses as humanly possible <^oo^>

  2. What a great list! I'd love to visit Roger's Gardens someday. They don't have cool stuff like that here in Michigan!

  3. I really like your bucket list! I'm not sure what's on my bucket list yet, except carving pumpkins, roasting pumpkin seeds, create some Halloween wreaths, movie nights , drinking apple cider, etc :)

  4. Sounds like a busy - but awesome - month ahead!

  5. Such a great (and ambitious) list!

  6. When you hand out Vegan candy to trick or treaters, what kind do you hand out? I'm trying to think of ideas as this is my first Vegan halloween and I'd like to hand out Vegan candy. :) I know of some but what is the easiest kind to hand out?

    1. Yay for you passing out vegan Halloween candy! That's so awesome!

      Here is a handy post that will offer a multitude of suggestions: http://www.thespookyvegan.com/2010/10/31-days-of-halloween-favorite-vegan.html

      Every year it seems that there are more and more vegan Halloween candies, so check your local health food store or Whole Foods for new vegan candies! Or you could pass out little bags of pretzels or even small toys!
