Halloween is one of the most exciting times of the entire year.

Does anything sound better than that? If you ask me, it’s never too early to start planning for Halloween. There are countless things to do around Halloween. There’s haunted hayrides, pumpkin carving, scary movies, apple picking… and that’s just naming a few.

Start Shopping For Decorations
One of the best parts about Halloween is getting to see all the houses decorated in your neighborhood. Planning ahead means you will have ample time to pick out the spookiest Halloween decorations that you can find. There is only one time a year that you can deck your house out in cobwebs, pumpkins, and ghosts, so you might as well go above and beyond with it! Not to mention that Halloween decorations are much cheaper when you buy them out of season.
There are a plethora of Halloween movies out there for every type of person, whether you’re into scary movies or funny ones. No Halloween is complete without spending a night binge-watching movies with your friends and eating candy, so to plan ahead, take some time and queue movies you want to watch.
