What's your favorite Halloween movie? Do you have a favorite Halloween book, by any chance?

My favorite movie is Hocus Pocus, with Bette Midler, Kathy Najimy and Sarah Jessica Parker. I don't think I've ever read a Halloween-themed book, but I downloaded one recently that I may check out this weekend. It's a novella about the Grim Reaper finding his mate.

I know Halloween is a controversial holiday, but even though I was raised Southern Baptist, we always celebrated it. It was my mom's birthday. This is my first Halloween without her and it will be very, very different. I'll be starting my health retreat that day, for that reason.

And speaking of Halloween treats, do you have a favorite Fall recipe - maybe something pumpkin - that you especially enjoy making this time of year? I have to take a treat to my writing group next week and I'm tired of the same old thing...

Linda (lindamanthey) | 413 comments I don't really enjoy the scary part of Halloween. I have never been drawn to the horror genre. That being said, I do enjoy the children and look forward to trick or treaters, (Another first in our new home) . When I was a child we would dress up in silly costumes mostly procured from our parents closet. We would take a pillow case and go door to door all over the area trying to see if we could fill it up. We usually went home when it got so heavy we had a hard time carrying it. I grew up in Southern California so the weather was not an issue and we didn't have the safety concerns we have today. Things have really changed.
As for a favorite pumpkin recipe, my mom used to make a pumpkin pie cake that is fabulous. I will dig it out and maybe submit it to the holiday cookbook.
I love the "Halloween Town" movies with Debbie Reynolds.

I'd forgotten about the Halloween Town movies! My mother loved them. And Ray likes the Good Witch series with a actress who used to play the Colonel on JAG. He's had a crush on her for-ever. I watch them to be a supportive spouse, but my favorite is Hocus Pocus. I don't like horror books or movies, but I do enjoy Supernatural on TV. It's a not-so-secret vice. That, and the new series Lucifer on Fox.
