Special Ways to Celebrate Halloween With Your Spouse
Halloween is one of the most underrated holidays ever. Mostly people think this holiday is meant only for children and therefore don’t give much thought into celebrating it. But what they don’t realize is that Halloween can be really fun, especially for married and cohabiting couples. This is the only holiday where people don’t have to travel and deal with their relatives. For those couples who have children, Halloween is the best time to get some time off from parenting duties. While their kids go trick or treating, they can have a romantic date night.
Here are some fun ideas to make your and your partner’s Halloween special:
1. Watching a horror movie together
What is more exciting than clutching to your partner and watching a scary horror movie? It is scientifically proven that watching a horror movie is exhilarating and creates a feeling of arousal. This happens because our brain releases a feel-good chemical called dopamine in our bodies when we get scared. Be it the theaters or your bedroom, watching a horror movie with your partner can be really set a romantic mood and can make your Halloween very special.
2. Dressing up and role-playing
Halloween is the one day in a year when you can wear crazy outfits and not be judged for it. You can dress like the superhero or the sexy actress that your partner finds very attractive. Or you could fulfill your partner’s fantasy by dressing up and indulging in some exciting role play.
3. Go to local haunted places
Every neighborhood has some creepy locations which are rumored to have ghosts and paranormal activities. Visiting these so-called haunted places is surely going to be thrilling. You and your partner can try exploring these locations on Halloween’s night.
4. Buy candies for each other

5. Give each other presents
Halloween can be another occasion to give each other presents, but with a twist. You can give your partner spooky gifts or play pranks on them and freak them out. Sure it will not be as romantic as Valentine’s day but you can definitely create some fun memories which you both can cherish later in life.
