I'm working on my list and will post it tomorrow. I'm going to be one of the few (if not only) who is going to be balls to the wall Christmas with my likes list. I love Halloween but (cover your ears!) when it's over, I love Christmas just as much!

I am the same way Spookyblackcat.I know i am in the minority here, but I am big into sparkly Christmas! I obviously love Halloween , but once it is done, bring on Christmas, so you will not be the only one with a all Christmas likes list.

Ok, so I will probably edit this later on, but here's my list!

Halloween Likes:

Our party this year was a hit, so we plan on having one next year as well. No defined theme (might focus on pirates?), but I do plan on doing 2 of the 3 main rooms in blacklight. So anything Glow in the dark or that would glow under blacklight would be awesome. We only have one blacklight strip as of now, so bulbs or light strips would be amazing. :D :D

Cauldrons, witch/wizard hats, potion ingredient jars/bottles. Spell books, Brooms, wands. I would really like some good potion recipe pages. One of those "DANGER witch seen in the forest" signs would be cool. The only think witchy that I don't like is the crashed witches and the curly toed witch shoes.

Black cats, ravens, owls, bats, spiders, skulls/skeletons (human or animal),

Hocus Pocus movie:
I love every bit of that movie! I would like a pillow case with a movie quote on it, A framed image of the sisters, my own Book… Anything really.

The Addams Family (from the TV show specifically):
I adore Gomez and Morticia. I would love a Thing or Cousin It.

Fortune teller:
tarot cards, jewelry, scarves, runes, palmistry hand. fortune teller sign. I love gypsies in general, so anything gypsy related is good.

The Classic Monsters:
Dracula/Vampires (not twilight). frankenstein and his bride. werewolves/wolfman. I would love to have framed portraits of the classic monsters as well as family photos of the Sanderson sisters, Addams family, and the Munster family. Or any creepy/spooky portraits/paintings/pictures.

PIRATES!: We love pirates and the boyfriend is a sailor, so anything nautical is used year round!

candlesticks, candelabras, lanterns, string lights, Black lights!

creepy plants:
eye ball plant, fly traps, etc

I like all ghosts. even cutesy ones…

bust statues:
I once heard someone mention a hall of ancestors and I love that idea and would love some busts to start my own 'ancestor' collection

Graveyard: headstones, spooky trees (love trees!), pumpkins/gourds/jack o lanterns

Zombies are okay.

I would like to start collecting specimen jars or oddities, as of now I have a shed snake skin wired up as a "ghost snake" and he's lonely without any freaky friends. haha

Colors: Black, Purple, red, lime green, orange

dragons and venetian masks. Not just at Halloween, i always have my masks and dragons out

I can always use more creepy cloth.
I'd like white sheets to put over our couches/furniture for a haunted house vibe.
i'd like small brains for my "bat brains" apothecary jar. I can't find any.
Anything with antique or old looking is great. homemade things are awesome

Halloween Dislikes:
babydolls, gore, cutesy things, clowns, serial killers, and i don't dislike it, but i'm not a huge fan of nightmare before christmas.
NO outdoor decorations please! I am afraid the neighborhood kids would just ruin them.


I'm in to happy, glittery, shiny, traditional christmas decor

Animals: Owls, penguins, polarbears, reindeer, regular deer, mice... pretty much all animals look good in santa hats...

From Movies:
LOVE cartoon Grinch
rudolph, frosty, Santa clause, Jack frost, The year with out Santa claus, Santa claus is coming to town, White christmas, It's a wonderful life.

Love snow men

Santa, Mrs. Claus, Elves, reindeer

Love glittery/shiny decorations

Colors: red, green, gold, silver, and baby blue


Vintage cards/decorations



need a tree skirt

clear ornaments


Nativities, Religious items, Nightmare before christmas (sorry!), A Christmas story, Neon colors, mulicolored light strings. Elf on a shelf, 'rustic' decorations

I like glitter and sparkles

We love baked goods, sweets, cookies and candy

Someone mentioned a "Halloween props I want" board on Pinterest and I thought that was a great idea. It's kind of my to do list. It definitely does not mean you have to make or buy anything at all on there. It's just fyi

no snakes please, I don't care for Elves, elf on a shelf, creepy babies, gore,religious items, day of the dead, window clings and I don't prefer bright modern or neon colors for Christmas. I like good ole traditional Christmas colors
Please don't think you have to make or buy anything specific that I have listed it's just to help you learn about me. Making stalking easier, haha...

saki, i know...i'll tell a quick story...i had this huge coffin we made for a prank for a setup on year, i could store all my skellies and pumpkins in that monster...well it got rickkitie and i told my husband he could haul it to the dump after halloween, he was estatic, getting rid of something..lol....i had it by my drive in a little wooded area and kept it there and decided to put my jack and sally xmas blowups there and make it a nbc xmas scene for one of my xmas set ups..i do a huge yard scene, each area in kinda themes...it was so cute, with the purple and green lights a xmas tree and so on......so after xmas, i gave my husband the go ahead, haul it off and he was on his way to the dump......when he got there, no one was really around and he had to try to shove it in a raised crusher for wood, halfway in it got crowded and he had a crowd watching...as he shoves it in he turns and goes.........." well grandma couldnt afford a big funeral so she had to go economy"
he was so proud of himself....
Every house needs a nbc area :)
