My Favorite Halloween Moments

Welp, it’s Halloween which means that my birthday month is coming to a close. The presidential debates did a great job of taking the attention off of me and ruining my 25th birthday month. I’d like to close this October with a holiday-themed post. The following are my favorite Halloween moments from movies and TV. And by movies, I mean movie because I only named one.

The Hilarity of a Clever Costume: On How I Met Your Mother, the main character, Ted, dresses up as a hanging chad for a Halloween party. When I first saw this episode I thought, “Wow this is show is so funny!” And it was…for the first couple episodes. Then it was just the same thing over and over. How many times can someone laugh at Neil Patrick Harris saying “Legen–wait for it–dary!” I mean, come on. But yeah, the hanging chad costume made it all worth it.

* In case you don’t know what a hanging chad is, it’s the term for a voting ballot that hasn’t been punched out all the way. People used to punch a hole in paper to signify who their vote went to. I know, archaic. Al Gore kind of started the whole hanging chad thing right around the time that he invented the internet.

Realizing It’s Mandatory to Dress like a Skank: In Mean Girls, Cady learns the hard way when she shows up at a Halloween party in a costume that’s actually somewhat scary. I’ve never been a total fan of slutty costumes, although I’m sure if I had a super hot bod I would. I mean, if you got it, flaunt it! What I’m saying is that I can understand why it’s fun for girls to dress that way. It’s fun and exciting and you get tons of attention. Nothing’s better than that, right?!….

Home-Made Costumes That You Can’t Move In: Sue Heck from The Middle is one of the saddest characters that I’ve ever seen portrayed on a show. And I don’t mean that she’s emotionally sad, in fact Sue is genuinely a happy person. She’s just one of those people that you feel bad for. When Halloween rolls around, Sue decides to go as a single die. Unfortunately when she arrives at a party she is bumped into, overlooked, and used as a tabletop to hold her peer’s drinks.

The Fun of Dressing Up with Your Friends and Trick-or-Treating: This is really what Halloween is all about. The boys in Freaks and Geeks are some of my favorite characters ever. There is honestly nothing better than rocking an awesome costume and going out with your friends. Even if one of your friends dresses as The Bionic Woman.

    • Yes, Freaks and Geeks was awesome! So sad that there was only one season! Sue Heck really is painful to watch sometimes, but she’s definitely my favorite part of the show!

  1. The Sue Heck costume reminded me of a picture I saw on Pinterest yesterday of a woman dressed up as a potted plant (did I even need to qualify that with “I saw it on Pinterest”?) Maybe a good idea, until you want to sit down or make out with someone at the party.

    • Hahah omg Pinterest. There are so many good things on that website and so, so many awful things. Yeah, sitting down is my number one favorite thing to do at parties, besides making out of course. Actually, my number one is finding and talking to any of the host’s pets…

  2. I’ve never seen a single episode of any show mentioned here and I only saw Mean Girls because it was on TBS one weekend and it was 2007. I did a lot of weird things that year.

    I’m not sure what my favorite Halloween moment is from a TV/show or movie. I liked the Modern Family episode in season 2. It was one of maybe 4 good episodes the entire season.

    • Really?! Freaks and Geeks is so good, you would like it. It’s only one season long so it doesn’t take much to watch it.
      Mean Girls is really good, but I’ve seen it way too many times. Tina Fey is in it too much.
      Modern Family has gone so downhill. I feel like we’ve talked about this before. How I Met Your Mother is actually funny in the first couple seasons, but it just gets overdone after a while. And the title of the show is so annoying to type out.
      Oh and the MIddle is good. I like it way better than Modern Family.

    • Yes! The Middle is awesome! I feel like it gets so overlooked because of Modern Family’s success. It’s so underrated! Sue is so great right? I feel like I had a bit of Sue in me during middle school and then I just became really mean after that. Thanks for stopping by HF!
