Countdown to Halloween

August is only now halfway  over, and I’m sitting here like:


I’m getting antsy for the holiday, so I thought it would make me feel better to think about what I have to look forward to between now and October 31.

August 26: Don’t Breathe premieres in theaters.  This movie has great reviews on both IMDB and Rotten Tomatoes.  I’m going to watch this one in theaters for sure.

September 1: By this date, a lot of Halloween stuff should be out.   I already posted about TJ Maxx, and I’m pretty sure Michaels has their merchandise out, too.  I asked Party City when their items would be on the shelves, and they told me that everything should be ready by September 1.  Target and Walmart will probably drag their feet to get the most that they can out of back-to-school sales, but they’ll follow suit shortly.  I’m sure Spirit and Halloween Express will not disappoint me.  I even think (*fingers crossed*) that Spirit might actually be opening much earlier.

September 1: It’s only 60 days until Halloween!

September 14: The 6th season of American Horror Story starts!  Who the hell knows at this point what this season is about, but I can say the promos for them have piqued my interest.  I’ve read that some of them are red herrings, but they haven’t disappointed me yet, so I’m excited.

September 16: Universal Studio’s Halloween Horror Nights begins.  I won’t get to go to this, but I like reading about the new stuff they have and watching videos of the creepy attractions.  Someday I will make it to the actual event.

October 1: Duh.  It’s the beginning of October, so the season is in full swing.  And I get to decorate my yard!!!  I’m pretty regimented about my decorating.  It’s got to be up on October 1st and down on November 1st.  Otherwise, I might keep it up all year.

October 16: My favorite Halloween tv event premieres tonight:  The Simpsons: Treehouse of Horror XXVII.  That’s a lot of horror.

Those are the big things on my countdown right now.  If you need a little bit to help you through the impatience of waiting on Halloween, write out your own list.  It helps.
