Happy Halloween! While this Halloween is looking certainly different than last year, we wish you all the same spooktacular memories. Celebrating in small groups, watching horror movies, or even participating in some Halloween trivia are all surefire ways to have fun safely, and enjoy this haunting time of year! Some of my favorite light Halloween movies for the whole family are The Haunted Mansion and Hocus Pocus. Of course, you can carve pumpkins, like this cute vampire bat, or bake the classic pumpkin sugar cookies you can find at your local grocery store. However you decide to celebrate, stay safe and have fun! Challenge your family to this Halloween Trivia below…some of these are definitely more tricky (pun intended!)
