While I love horror and spooky goodness all year long, there’s a handful that I enjoy watching close to Halloween time to bask in all their delicious glory. While I may watch plenty of other horror and Halloween-y movies around this time of year, this list is my top favorites, in no particular order:
There were a lot of ups and downs to 2015. Being unemployed for a few months really ruined some travel plans or me. But there were definitely a lot of great moments over all! I’d like to look back on some of my favorite things of the past year:
Ian McDiarmid aka Emperor Palpatine
Star Wars Weekend 2015 at Walt Disney World:
While I fully plan to do an actual full post on the insane coolness which was this event, I do need to spoil it some now. In May last year, we took my nieces for their first ever trip to Disney World and Universal, and strategically planned it so the girls could go for Star Wars Weekends. Well, long story short, my nieces were picked to be in the opening parade, in which they’d be dressed as Jedi Padawans and given lightsabers and some quick training from the Jedi Academy, before leading the celebrity guests in that were riding in the parade. And they needed two adults to walk the parade with the girls… I WALKED IN THE STAR WARS PARADE WITH EMPEROR PALPATINE!
I’ve been to Disney several times, but an especially fun time of year for me is Halloween time, when the decorations change up for the season. I’m very passionate about Halloween, and love to attend what events celebrating my favorite holiday I can. So, for the first time last year, I went to Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party. I enjoyed it quite a bit, and when they announced the special Sanderson Sisters (Hocus Pocus) show earlier this year, I was ready to buy my tickets and go.
