Halloween for the Homebody

Halloween is full of noises that go bump in the night, costume parties, and of course, the candy. While it may seem that all your friends and basically the entire University is as Halloween-crazed as the next person, that’s just not the case. There are those of us out there that hate being scared for fun and don’t want to celebrate a holiday with blood and gore and loud music. Gasp! I know. Often you are seen as the scrooge of Halloween and deemed boring, but we know that’s not quite true.

We know that you are the girl who lives for canceled plans and loves a good Netflix binge, and that’s okay too! Your Scrooge status is no more because this is your guide to the perfect at-home Halloween celebration. All you need is, well, you!

First things first it can’t be a real celebration without food. So here are a few of the best Halloween recipes, don’t worry there won’t be any blood or brains.

These stuffed peppers are a perfect healthy option for those of you without a sweet tooth.

For a little extra spice on Halloween, make these jalapeno poppers.

For desert, we found the most adorable pumpkin rice Krispie Treats.

The next step is enjoying all of your treats with a few spooky movies. We recommend these movies and have rated the scare level too.

It's The Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown: safe for anyone above the age of 2.

Halloweentown: can be watched with the lights off and doors unlocked.

The Original Nightmare on Elm Street: we recommend keeping the hallway light on just in case.

The Conjuring: you may want to watch It's The Great Pumpkin afterward. 

If you are feeling a little more active but still don’t want to leave your bed, check out these video games for some extra Halloween scares.

Five Nights at Freddy's


Spooky's Jump Scare Mansion

There is no need to dress up since tonight is all about you but we recommend getting the comfiest PJs around and showing off how much better your Halloween is with some of the amazing new Snapchat filters! We are obsessed with the plaid on this nightshirt. 

Monday nights are for mourning the weekend and homework so cuddle up and enjoy a peaceful Halloween this year.
