Hallotober Blogger’s Tag – Halloween Q&A

Happy Halloween week! I’ve been neglecting my blog slightly this month, but what better way to get back in to it with a tag. This is my first one, so I’m super excited to be involved – especially as it’s Halloween related. So thank you Ellie for the tag, do check out her post too!

First up, here are the rules:

  • Thank the person who tagged you and link to their post.
  • Put the rules at the beginning.
  • You can use the tag image somewhere in the post.
  • Answer the 13 questions.
  • Tag 13 people to do the tag.
  • Delete question 13, add a new question of your own.

Let’s get to it!

What’s your favourite thing about October?

This month is definitely my favourite, I’m not sure I could pick just one thing. The colours of the leaves turning, the crispness in the air as the weather starts to cool down, the colour of the sunset skies as the darker days creep in. There’s something magical about October, for sure.

Are you a big celebrator of Halloween?

Definitely! I try to do something every year, as it’s my favourite holiday.

What’s your favourite horror movie?

Again, I struggle to just pick one. Although I would have to say… the first Saw movie has a special place in my heart – it’s the first horror that really stuck with me. It was showing late one night on TV, before I had my own DVD collection, so I stayed up. I was definitely too young and it really scared me at the time. I love the story line and I’m a bit of a sucker for gore in movies.

Would you rather a cosy night watching horrors or a big night out in a costume?

I definitely like a mix of both, I think it depends what kind of mood I’m in. As I write this, I’d prefer a cosy night in.

Which has been your most favourite costume to date?

I had a party a few years ago and dressed as a devil. The dress was an Ann Summers number that I wouldn’t dream of squeezing in to now, but it’s my make up that I’m most proud of!

Bobbing for apples or pin the hat on the witch?

I’ll go with pin the hat on the witch because putting my face in water terrifies me.

How do you celebrate Halloween?

It varies each year, but usually I’ll put some decorations up at home, carve a few pumpkins and watch horror movies. Depending on the day it falls on and other commitments, I’ll have a night out with friends in fancy dress too.

What’s your least favourite horror?

Most modern paranormal focused films… I prefer something that’s more believable because then it’s actually scary.

Do you have a favourite trick or treating memory?

Maybe not a favourite one, but an amusing one all the same! I’ve only actually been trick or treating once… when I was growing up, we lived in the middle of nowhere and there wasn’t anywhere to trick or treat. In my first year of secondary school, we’d moved somewhere much more built up so my mum let me go out with a friend. I was so excited to finally go… only to be chased home by older kids! Although I’m a lover of horror and Halloween, I’m also a bit of a wimp, so I didn’t want to go back out after that!

What’s your favourite thing about Halloween?

Although I am a self confessed wimp, I love scaring other people – is that really mean?! I love the colours and imagery associated with Halloween as well, particularly pumpkins for some reason.

Scary costume or silly costume?

Scary all the way!

What’s your favourite Halloween candy?

I don’t think you can get it in the UK but candy corn! If I ever actually find some here then I will need to stock up, for sure.

What’s the best face you have carved into a pumpkin?

This one!

I hope you enjoyed reading my answers as much as I enjoyed answering them, happy Halloween!
