Hello readers. I imagine that most of you will be reading this the day after All Hallows’ Eve, long after the ghosts and ghouls have departed. “Rats” you may be thinking to yourself, “If only I could have made more of last night. My fright and scare levels aren’t nearly where they should be.” Well do I have news for you, dear reader. For years, I have been celebrating a bonus holiday, known only to a select few. With this one weird trick, I have circumvented the post-pumpkin blues. And you can too, by celebrating Secret Halloween with me.
Now you might be wondering, “What’s secret Halloween? How could this possibly sate my desire for scares?” Honestly I think the name is pretty self-explanatory, but I have a word count to reach. Secret Halloween is the day after Halloween, in which you pretend that it is Halloween for another night because you didn’t adequately prepare for the first Halloween (Halloween Prime). By celebrating in the same lack-luster way you did last night, you can keep the lukewarm fun going for another 24 hours!
The best part about Secret Halloween is that you already have all the supplies you need! You’ve got some leftover candy sitting around someplace, all your decorations are still up, and those pumpkins sitting outside slowly rotting are gonna be good for at least another week. Perhaps even more integral to the Halloween-at-home experience, streaming services haven’t gotten rid of their collection of spooky movies yet.
So what are you still doing here? Get out there and party like it’s yesterday!
