October is one of my absolute favorite months for soooo many reasons. Sweater weather, steamed maple milk with VT maple syrup (I grew up in VT, so yes, it has to be VT maple syrup), hot chocolate, Halloween (the holiday), horror movie marathons, pumpkin & apple everything EXCEPT PSL…#sorrynotsorry PSL fans. And last but not least, finding & sending the best Halloween cards!
When I was a child, Halloween was the next best holiday to Christmas (and my birthday, which I totally consider a holiday. Just ask my husband). Finding the perfect costume, trick-or-treating with my friends & later when I was too ‘mature’ for that, dressing up for parties & watching horror movies non stop was S O M U C H F U N !
I even made it on the front page of our local paper for my costume as Little Orphan (Asian) Annie. I’m really gonna have to find that but it’s packed away somewhere in my basement, never to be seen again 😱
My mom hand crocheted the red wig & sewed my red dress with the white collar a la Annie. Like completely handmade from a dress pattern. This stands out as one of my best Halloween costumes and memories, thanks to my mom.
Nowadays, I don’t dress up or give out candy (but I do decorate our mantle) because I’m an introverted homebody who’d rather be at home with my husband & pup, watching horror movies & eating candy. AND also since our house lies on the top of a valley, no one comes for trick or treating because of our long & steep driveway. Kids these days…
So for those of you who love Halloween, whether you dress up, pass out candy, or send out cards, check out our ten spooktacular Halloween cards to celebrate.
