Hi-ho and happy Friday, friends. Thanks for dropping in and saying, “Hey!”
Here we are, on the top of the heap of the holiday chain gang. Suddenly it’s ghouls and goblins. Soon enough, it’ll be talk of the Mayflower, turkey timers and who wore the pilgrim hats best, that will lead directly into the whirlwind of holiday parties, eating too many of Santa’s cookies and clinks all around to ring in the new year.
Whew. Take a deep breath. Relax.
If you let it, it could almost feel like the holiday season is over before its even begun. But let’s do this instead. Let’s revel in the joys these next few months are sure to bring and embrace our festivus-es.
So why not start now, and let’s kick off the whole shebang with this week’s list of Friday Faves…
Since Halloween falls on a Friday this year, I’m sharing a few faves now so you can plan, and maybe use a few, for later. Because it’s going to be a big weekend folks.
I don’t think I’ve ever laughed so hard at other people being scared out of their gourds in the video below. If that’s wrong, I don’t wanna be right.
First things, first: The costumes!

These face paintings—and the history behind them—celebrating Day of the Dead aka Día de los Muertos, are stunning!
And now: Let’s party!
The 25 best Halloween horror films streaming on Netflix. But where’s Jamie Lee Curtis in Halloween? A major omission in my book.
We need tunes…Thriller…obviously. But did you remember AC/DC’s Hell’s Bell’s and Charlie Daniels Bands’ Devil Went Down to Georgia? The ultimate Hallloween playlist.
Toothbrushes and noisemakers? I’ll take a pass. But these ideas on what to hand out besides Halloween candy are right on target.
I like this strategic plan on how to dole out the kids collected candy and hopefully prevent them from going on that stratospheric sugar binge high.
Who doesn’t love a dog dressed up for Halloween? These are the cutest!
Okay, okay, here’s some costume winners for you cat-lovers too.
