Halloween bucket list

Halloween is my favorite holiday, and I personally like to celebrate all October long.

(Okay, I have to admit that sometimes I even start getting into the Halloween spirit in September!)

There’s just something I love about the atmosphere around Halloween, from the chill in the air and the crisp October weather, to the vibrant colors of fall leaves and pumpkin patches.

I go all out during the month of October: listening to Halloween music, doing as many Halloween activities as I can, and of course finding every excuse to dress up in a Halloween costume!

While I already created a list of fall bucket list ideas, I thought it would be fun to share 50+ MORE bucket list ideas that are specific to Halloween.

If you’re as obsessed with Halloween as I am, these are fun ways to celebrate the holiday during the entire month of October.

Bring on the Ideas!
