Is Halloween cancelled this year?!

I’ve never been big on celebrating Halloween, but this year (of all years … yes I’m aware of the irony) I’ve decided to put a bit more effort in it and let me say, just because all the typical ways to enjoy this spooky night of ghouls and goodies aren’t available, that certainly doesn’t mean you can’t still have a fun night. So, today I’m going to be sharing a few ideas for last-minute Halloween celebrations – read on if you dare mwahahahaha!

How to have the ultimate girl’s night (quarantine/isolation friendly)

Having a get-together with all of your girlfriends is definitely a significant occasion. I mean, as much as I love my boyfriend and hanging out with my other friends, nothing beats having a girl’s night in complete with movies, junk food and fun. There is just something so relaxing and enjoyable about a night like this, which makes it such a memorable and frequent event. Unfortunately, an evening like this isn’t exactly possible given the current state of events. South Africa in particular, on day 2 of our 21 day lockdown, is a place where a girl’s night in is an impossible occurrence. So why am I writing a blog post like this when it can’t be done? Well, one of my close friends and I were meant to have one of these this week – something we’d been looking forward to since the beginning of the year. I intended to write this blog post to coincide with all the fun things we would do together; I’m still writing it because as much as we can’t actually have a girl’s night in right now, you can still have all this fun at home (or facetime your girlfriends and have a virtual get-together). So, for everyone looking for some fun ideas to keep you occupied during all this self-isolation, or as something to look forward to once the pandemic has calmed down, here are a few things to do on the ultimate girls’ night in.

What to do on Halloween?

When you’re little, it seems simple what you would do on Halloween. You get dressed up in your cool costume, maybe help decorate the house in spooky attire and then go trick-or-treating in your neighbourhood. Or you and your friends have a sleepover at each other’s house, and there is just Halloween candy everywhere. However, the fun sometimes goes out of it the older you get, but that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t get to enjoy Halloween. There are plenty of things to do during this spooky holiday, whether you are young or old or doing things solo, with a partner or with a group. I was thinking of a fun way to spend Halloween with my boyfriend and maybe a friend or two. While I was researching, I actually realised there are many things to do on Halloween, even for people like me who aren’t into things that are in anyway creepy or scary. So, if you’re struggling to think of something to do this Halloween, or are looking for inspiration to spice up your group gathering, here are ten ideas for what to do on Halloween. I hope you enjoy it!
