Creative  Ways

If you wish to get creative for your spooky date then you can try a spin on scary movie night. You just need blankets, pillows, popcorn, candy, drinks, laptop, a car and your secret stash of scary Halloween movies. 

Once you have all the equipment you’ll need, you and your date and can drive out onto a back road or empty parking for a personal drive in movie theater. You just have to pack the trunk with the blankets and pillows while you curl with your yummy goodies in the back. Now you can start your movies and listen to all the night sounds. 

There are different ideas that you can try to celebrate this spooky season varying on the scare meter from scream’tastic to a simple boo.
