Yes. Finally. Halloween is right there. It’s right. There. I can smell it, just like the witches from The Witches can smell kids. If you, like me, celebrate Halloween by watching a bunch of spooky movies and want to know what to eat or drink while watching them, rejoice! Flop on the couch, flip on the screen, and drink (and eat!) to the best day of the year:
