Grab your candy corn and get comfy, friends. In this episode my friend Amy and I are talking Halloween in pop culture, starting with our favorite costumes and ending with the scary movies Amy thinks I might be able to handle (despite my tendency to be a great big scaredy cat baby). I have little kids and a low tolerance for spookiness, while she has older kids and loves to be scared. So we have a great mix of Halloween fun in books, movies, and TV shows for you. And if you notice that we didn’t mention Thriller in this list, well, just forgive us. I do have some fun facts about candy corn, though, so there’s that.
Bonus! For 8 TV series with hilarious Halloween episodes, check out this post on Amy’s site.
