Attention Halloween enthusiasts, gourd fanatics, white girls, and Starbucks devotees:
PUMPKIN SPICE SEASON IS UPON US!
Starting today, Starbucks is officially beginning it's seasonal run of the unbelievably popular Pumpkin Spice Latte, which to me marks the unofficial end of summer and beginning of the beginning of HALLOWEEN SEASON. It may still be hot, but this is the first sign of better and cooler things to come.
Look, seriously. Even if you don't drink coffee, or Starbucks, or whatever, most of us will take any excuse to start celebrating Halloween early. If you're too into it like us, It is a great time to begin planning your Halloween activities, making your costume, and taking your decorations out of storage.
To help you get into a mood, my friend Lee Anne Moore (@Jedi_Scum) helped me by creating a list of 13 Pre Halloween Movies. These are the kind of movies that you can start watching now, that will put you into the spirit gradually without ruining the specialness of our favorite Fall holiday.
1. Donnie Darko
2. Ed Wood
3. Shaun of the Dead
5. The Craft
8. The Crow
9. Practical Magic
11. E.T. The Extra Terrestrial
13. The Addams Family
Honorable Mentions: Coraline, Corpse Bride, Pans Labyrinth, Monster Squad...
What movie are you going to start watching way too early because you can't wait for a respectable time to start celebrating Halloween?
Thank you to Lee Anne for helping me create this awesome list. You can follow her on twitter at @Jedi_Scum.
