I love the pagan customs, harvest blessings, and air of anticipation around this season. For whatever reason, Halloween season makes me giddy. There’s so much to do before winter sets in! I, like many others, am a fall-ophile. The crispness of the weather, the changing colors, pumpkins (freaking adorable gourds!), apple picking, bonfires, and cozy nights with a good book. So for such a beloved time of year, here are some AMAZING resources for your Halloween party, which should feature cartoonish treats, harvest wreaths, and fabulous costumes.

Then of course you need something to read, so here are my picks for Books that go Bump in the Night! And because I do enjoy a good cozy mystery, I need to feature my ‘Solving the Yarn’ craft mysteries list and ‘I Read a Latte’ culinary mysteries list. Can’t forget the kiddies, so here’s a Kid’s Halloween list. Last, but not least are some freaky movies with the American Horror Story video list.

Enjoy the witching season with some good reads and watches. Happy Haunting!
