As September turns to October, we’re continuing to do all of our favorite fall activities like going apple picking, attending autumn festivals, and admiring the vibrant colors of the changing leaves. But this month brings a whole slew of new Halloween-themed activities like picking pumpkins (and baking pumpkin-flavored treats), getting lost in corn mazes, going on hayrides, and getting spooked in haunted houses. And it all culminates in the ultimate October activity: dressing up in a Halloween costume.
Personally, we’ve been planning our Halloween costumes since approximately November 1st of last year. We love dressing up in wild outfits, wigs, and accessories and pretending to be someone else for a night at a Halloween party—and we wish that trick-or-treating wasn’t just for kids. But if you’re not big into Halloween costumes, that’s okay, too. You can still get in the spooky spirit with a pair of Halloween socks.
This month, we’re sending our subscribers Halloween socks decked out with cartoon ghosts. Are they scary ghosts like the girl in The Ring, or friendly ghosts like Casper? That’s up to you to decide. The socks also have a surprise underneath: They say “Boo!” on the bottom. So, when you put your feet up, your friends will get an extra little scary surprise. They’re so spooky, they’ll scare your, well, socks off. Put them on for a scary movie marathon, to hand out candy to trick-or-treaters, or to tell corny Halloween jokes.
Speaking of corny Halloween jokes, here are some of our favorites you can borrow:
How did the farmer mend his socks?
With cabbage patches!
What kind of socks do you need to plant flowers?
What do you call an animal with no socks on?
Halloween is the main event this month, but it’s not the only holiday to look forward to. October also marks Do Something Nice Day (October 5th), National Dessert Day (October 14th), and National Candy Corn Day (October 30th)—three things that we can absolutely get behind, though we understand that candy corn isn’t for everyone. Plus, October 17th is Wear Something Gaudy Day, and at the very least, we’ll be wearing wildly mismatching socks. If you think about it, pairing a bunch of different pieces together is sort of like pulling a Frankenstein, and what better month to do that than October?
