From our marriage & parenting contributor, Mary Carver.
When I was little, I started having nightmares. My mom eventually realized they were caused by something she’d allowed me to watch on television. The terrifying show? Scooby Doo.
I’m no longer scared by a silly cartoon, but I could only watch one season of Buffy the Vampire Slayer before I got too scared.
I don’t see horror movies in the theater, I don’t read Stephen King novels, and when our local amusement park starts playing its “fright night” commercials every year, I lose my mind because HOW DARE THEY?
Suffice it to say, I’m not really here for the scary parts of Halloween. But the candy bars and costumes?
Oh yeah, that’s my jam.
I love dressing up my kids and seeing other kids’ clever and cute costumes. Sometimes I even dress up with them.
And, obviously, I’m in it for the candy. And the pumpkins. And don’t forget It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown! (where to watch It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown full movie)
But luckily for scaredy cat couch potatoes like me, that’s not the only Halloween fun to be found on TV.
