My birthday is over.
While usually that makes people sad, I get so excited. It means I get to celebrate my favorite season: Fall. Yes, capital F because it’s that important.
There are plenty of reasons to love this time of year, and I have another blog (here) with my favorite things for Fall 2020, but we aren’t here to talk about those things. We are here to talk about the movies.
I only allow myself to watch them from August 15th – November 1st. It’s like the absence makes my heart grow fonder. I get that night before a vacation feeling during the days leading up to when I allow myself to watch them.
Now, let me warn you. I don’t do scary. That’s not my thing. I love a light-hearted, fall aesthetic movie. If you’re looking for a list of scary movies, you will be sadly mistaken. (However, I did think Hocus Pocus was a scary movie up until I was about 20 and rewatched it to figure out it isn’t scary. It’s fine. I am a chicken. Don’t worry about it.)
In no particular order, here are my fall favorites:
- Hocus Pocus
- Addams Family
- Now & Then (This is more of a summer transition into fall movie, but it’s so good, it makes the list.)
- Harry Potter (series)
- Halloweentown (series)
- Twitches (series)
- Teen Witch
- Double-Double Toil and Trouble
- Practical Magic
- The Craft
- Death Becomes Her
- The Witches
New additions (2020)
- Teen Witch
- October Sky
