Goodnight Elizabeth wrote:Great question, Nova. My favorite Halloween movie truly is The Nightmare Before Christmas. My cellphone wallpaper is TNBC. I like that I can use stuff from the movie twice. "Kidnap the Sandy Claws" is one of my Christmas ringtones. I watched E.T. the other day, and I still love it. Hocus Pocus is another one that I love.
Ditto on TNBC, and Hocus Pocus! How I love the latter. I am an admitted HUGE WIMP, so TNBC is the 'scariest' halloween movie I can handle. And Hocus Pocus always makes me laugh, especially with SJP being all ditsy and wonderful. Also, proof of my wimpiness - I have never seen ET all the way through. I just get really scared when it shows his hand reaching for the candy....ahhh!..... it's just too much for me.
As for Halloween in general - it's my favorite holiday, too! Hands down. It has more 'magic' for me than even Christmas. (I hope that doesn't mean I'm hell-bound, lol.) I've dressed up every year since birth. Literally. I have the pictures to prove it. I stopped trick-or-treating in high school ... because, like mentioned before, that is obnoxious. And seeing all the little kiddies in their costumes!! I could die from cute-overload. When I worked at the daycare as the toddler teacher, I absolutely MELTED when it was carnival time. Little dinosaurs, cowboys, princesses - it did not help with my baby-hungryness. HAHA. Cutest day of the year, though, hands down.
Also, there is something innately sexy (bringing this topic back down to the gutter
) about Halloween... Dressing up, costumes, masks, masquerading as something you're not... it's a thrill to get to live a seperate role, even if it's just for one night! It allows my alter-ego (one that's much more risque & wild) a little free reign.
