This or that tag: Halloween 2021 πŸ§›β€β™€οΈβœ¨

Hello and hey to the pumpkins that spice up my day a latte! πŸŽƒ Happy Halloween people!! πŸ§Ÿβ€β™‚οΈ Are you excited? I’m excited!! (And that was definitely not one of those moments where someone asks you how you are just so they can tell you how they are….or was it?? 😏🀣). I hope you’re all having a fang-tastic day and that your Halloween doesn’t suck (I couldn’t waste those puns πŸ™Œ) and I’m here to add to that so it ends up being spook-tacular! Back in 2019 I shared the This or that tag for Halloween and today I’m going to be revamping it to see what I get different in 2021!! ⚑

At the end I’ll quickly tally up what I got the same + what has changed since 2019 so park your broom and sit for a spell 🧹✨ let’s trick, treat and creep on….. πŸ•·οΈ

Creepy dolls or murderous clowns

Creepy dolls and that’s HUGE for me because Pennywise is my arch nemesis and I know for a fact that I went with murderous clowns before (I begged my family to go see IT in the cinema and didn’t sleep for over a week afterwards and don’t even get me started on a trip to the circus when I was little πŸ™„πŸ˜‚). I think what makes creepy dolls that bit more spine-chilling is that I once heard they hold the spirits or ghosts of people that you wouldn’t want lingering on earth 😳. Do you see why they win now!? I’m easily terrified and when it’s justifiable I’m more able to head in that direction 🀣.

Pumpkin pie or pumpkin seeds

Pumpkin pie all the way altho I’ve only had one before and that was when I made this pumpkin pie recipe! πŸ˜‚πŸŽƒ I don’t think pumpkin seeds can compare because they wouldn’t be very filling on their own, a pie leaves you feeling satisfied and not having to take another roundtrip back to the kitchen (I’m all for not going on loads of jaunts to that part of the house if one can do the job even better πŸ˜‹πŸ€£). Tbh I don’t think the two can compare, a pie is a dish and seeds are a snack πŸ€”. I didn’t question it this much before but I’m only just realizing the difference now!

Haunting or home invasion

A haunting seeing as some nights I can’t shake the feeling that our house is already haunted even tho it couldn’t possibly be, we’re the only people that have ever lived here! Up the road from where I live there’s a home that’s said to have been built ontop of a graveyard which AMAZES me because who would want to be in that scenario?? I’m praying the same doesn’t go for us and we just don’t know it yet πŸ˜‚. A week or so ago we thought there were alien lights in the sky as it was so weird how they were moving about so I’ve also prepared my mind for the possibility of an invasion…..but then it dawned on me that it was the start of midterm and also clubs or pubs (I don’t know which it was) were allowed to open back up so what we were seeing must have been strobe lighting at some party 😐🀣.

We live far out into the countryside so a part of me was like NO, that’s not possible! The lights are directly above us!! But yeah, I’ve got to try be more realistic about these things or else I’ll never be able to sleep ever again πŸ˜‚. For those of you that are curious, here’s a picture of the lights I saw in the sky (there was one main beam that would break off into 4 and shoot across the sky before moving about some more and coming back together as one…..which does sound like a planned thing now that I mention it 😀).

I swear it was clearer to see on the night πŸ˜…

Big cozy sweaters or big cozy scarves

Big cozy sweaters because you can’t not!! I’ve never heard of someone feeling completely warm because of a scarf, you’ve got to layer up and a sweater would come first! ❄️πŸ”₯

Scary costumes or funny costumes

Scary!! I’m becoming better at not being so freaked out when before if I’d tried to wear something scary I probably would have frightened myself more than anyone else….not that I can really remember being more than a ghost tho but we’ll let that slide, I’m growing!! 🀣

Fairy lights or candles

Candles!! Especially seeing as I built up my Coraline collection last year, I’m good to go! There’s nothing like having a candle lit as the days gets darker, it just feels so welcoming! πŸ•―οΈ Only when we started lighting candles again did I realize how fast the year has gone by!! It feels like only yesterday it was Winter at the beginning of 2021 and now it’s Autumn, slowing seeping into that same season πŸ₯Ά.

October or November

November! I feel bad saying that in a post that’s about Halloween but tough luck for it because my birthdays in November πŸ€£πŸŽ‰.

Skeletons or zombies

Zombies! This one’s been brought on by my sister who is a massive fan of The Last of Us and I must have sat through a billion play-throughs but that hasn’t put me off zombies, it’s actually made me think they’re better than skeletons! 🧟….Wait, can I say that when I need my own skeleton to survive?? 🦴 This is pure Halloween speak so I’m okay in saying zombie and going against my body! πŸ˜…πŸ€£

Caramel apples or s’mores

Last time when I did this post I don’t think I’d had s’mores before but this Summer just gone by was made of them and I’m OBSESSED 😍. I wouldn’t do them wrong and say caramel apples like that, I’ll stand by my s’mores πŸ™ŒπŸ˜‹.

Vampire or werewolf

Vampires because I’ve never really been interested by the story of werewolves πŸ˜¬πŸ™ˆ. That was some real talk right there πŸ˜‚.

Carve a pumpkin or jump in a leaf pile

I’m going to carve a pumpkin today and through being all excited for that imma have to go with it!! πŸ˜†πŸŽƒ It’s been so long since I last got to, I’ve been getting photo gallery notifications of memories from past years when I did + a friend of mine reminded me of when we both carved pumpkins together and it’s all led to this day and got me psyched to do it again!! (I don’t have any plans so I’ll probably just go at it with a sharpie first and hope for the best when it comes to the actual carving πŸ˜‚).

Bottle feed a baby zombie or walk alone in a dark forest

This is the only one I’ve really had to think about……I think I’ll go with bottle-feeding the baby zombie as if they’re a baby maybe it would be easy to convince them they’re not a zombie?? (Something tells me that’s not how it works tho 🀣). You wouldn’t catch me willingly being in a dark forest alone so I’ll just have to make the most out of it and look after a baby zombie!

Bats or black cats

Black cats and I may be taking the easy road because I’ve had black cats before but so be it! 🀣 I remember thinking, are black cats meant to be bad luck or spooky or something but I think when it comes to a life like that where they’re living with us they’re not either of those things, they’re family! 😭….sorry, I had a moment there and it won’t happen again πŸ˜‚.

Wearing an amazing but uncomfortable costume or a rubbish but comfy costume?

I think I’ll chance it and say amazing but uncomfortable because I want to see what constitutes an uncomfortable costume? πŸ€” Like just how amazing would it be? If it were incredible I’d go for it as it’s only for one day of the year and not even the whole day if we’re getting technical here. Without even looking back I know I said rubbish but comfy back in 2019, I was less difficult back then 🀣.

Party night or movie night

Movie night because that’s what I’m having later on!! My post What to watch on Disney plus this Halloween may or may not come in handy 😏 and that’s not a trick question, it will!🍿🀣

Last one alive or first one to die

Last one alive because even if that may be difficult in having to watch everyone else go first at least they had that extra person there to comfort them….unless this is a killer scenario and we’re being chased because I’d just keep on running 😊🀣.

Pumpkin spice or hot chocolate

Hot chocolate!! I haven’t gotten to try anything pumpkin spice related this year (I could be wrong on that one tho or maybe I’m thinking about a candle πŸ€”…I don’t know the difference between what I’ve eaten, had to drink or smell right now πŸ˜‚).

Trick or treat

For once I’ll go with trick because with Christmas coming that’s basically a treat period anyway with sweets and stuff. I could live to regret saying that tho! Whenever you hear someone saying TRICK OR TREAT you never do hear anybody answer with TRICK so I don’t really know what to expect, curiosity has led me to my final answer πŸ’­πŸ˜‚.

Well that was A LOT!! Out of 18 I got 12 the same (and one of those is debatable seeing as I went for s’mores over caramel apples back in 2019 because of my jaw even tho I don’t think I’d even had a s’more before πŸ˜πŸ˜‘πŸ˜). I could give myself that difference and say there’s 11/18, either way I have changed a bit I guess and that’s PETRIFYING in a good way! πŸ˜‚ It was loads of fun to go back over these and see the differences πŸ’«. SO!! Feel free to pick out any of the above and share your answers in the comments or even have fun with creating your own post so that you get to answer all of the questions – consider yourself TAGGED to take on the challenge! I have an extra one I just thought of for you:

Would you rather have to sleep in a room with a creepy doll that has glass eyes staring at you all night or go through the day being followed by a mysterious entity that could turn out to be way worse (if only by imagination). We’ll call it one day/night that this has to happen! Soooo what would you do?

I hope you have a ghoulishly amazing Halloween!! πŸ’₯ What are your plans for the day/night? As I mentioned up above, I’m going to carve a huge pumpkin and later I’ll be having a movie night πŸΏπŸ˜„ I’ll see you again soon but until then, stay Boo-tiful πŸ‘»πŸ€£. Buh-bye! πŸ’›πŸ§‘πŸ’œXx
