October, October, October! ๐ŸŽƒ

For most people, their favourite holiday is in summer when they get to go to a hot country, or Christmas time where they get to cosy up on the sofa with hot chocolate and a film. For me, undoubtedly, it’s October.

Autumn really starts kicking in, the brown, red and orange leaves begin falling. It’s so beautiful. The best films come out (IT recently hit the cinema), Jigsaw releases on the 27th October. You get to binge on the best old films; Scream, Hocus Pocus, Halloweentown, Nightmare Before Christmas… Need I say more.

I always say October is Christmas for the weird and wonderful. Pumpkin carving, all the amazing fancy dress costumes begin to release and the creepy activities appear – York Horror Mazes, Halloween at Thorpe Park, Escape Rooms with a creepy twist.


It’s possibly everything I could ask for rolled up in one month. Pumpkin Spiced Latte, Pintresting my future child’s terrifying Halloween costume(s), more excuses to watch the classics; Nightmare on Elm Street, Halloween, SAW, Friday the 13th.ย Ah! And this October has a Friday the 13th!

October for me, work wise, is pretty hectic.ย I’ve had a continuous 5-day headache, a butt load of work (a butt load is an accurate form of measurement) and a strong case of social anxiety approaching a big work conference…


Admittedly, I have been letting this get the best of me recently but with my positive cap on and all my favourite things just around the corner, it’s hard to not be excited. I’m spending Halloween in Oxford (a new place for me) and plan on discovering all of the creepy nooks and crannies it has to offer.

What’s your favourite time of year?

  1. I am definitely an Autumn fan! I love all the pumpkin related food and drinks and wearing cozy hoodies. Also, October is when I go on holidays for 3 weeks!
    Unlike many people, I dislike summer ๐Ÿ˜‰

      1. Well, I live in Europe too (the Netherlands), so Halloween isn’t big here either, unfortunately ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

        As for the job, I actually just quit it, haha.
        In the NL we get 25 holidays as a minimum, but some companies offer a bit more, but then the salary is a bit lower apparently.
        I am fortunate enough to have 40 days off.
        How’s that in the UK?

      2. Ah such a shame! Less pumpkin things for us ๐Ÿ˜ž
        I actually recall a conversation we had recently about them explaining things to you like you’re a child, despite being a qualified engineer (apologies if I’m wrong). Probably worth quitting if they weren’t treating you right! ๐Ÿ˜

        That’s really awesome, 40 is a lot! In the UK you’re allowed 28 days, but 8 are national holidays. So 20 days to take whenever you want!


      3. Yes! true, that was me ๐Ÿ˜‰

        That is very little holidays. Honestly, I applied for some jobs in the UK, but hearing this. I don’t think I could reduce so many days off ๐Ÿ˜

  2. I love July (coz of the rains) and October because its my birthday month and of course Halloween!
    Even though, Halloween’s not much of a thing here in India, but its fun to celebrate with the people who do celebrate it.
    Also HALLOWEENTOWN!!! I NEED TO SEE THAT MOVIE AGAIN !! Thanks for bringing back the memories!
