12 Reasons Halloween Is Way Better As An Adult

It's getting spooky in here! Treat yourself to a Reese's Peanut Butter Cup this Halloween and have the time of your life.

1. Now that you're a grown-up, you can totally splurge on the costume of your dreams from your childhood...

"Don't even try to stop me, MOM!"

2. ...and wear punny stuff that other adults will actually get.

"Who's the third wheel?"

3. You can even walk out into the world in spandex with no shame, if that's what you want to do!

Because grown-ups are better at holding knives. That's just science.

7. You finally recognize that your favorite "spooky" movies from when you were little are actually hilarious.

And are filled with jokes you're just now getting.

8. And the ones that scared you as a kid are just as scary as you remember.

"Doesn't matter if I'm 15 or 25, Michael Myers is terrifying."

9. Speaking of, scary things now give you more of an adrenaline rush than nightmares, and that’s kinda fun...


10. ...especially because you know how to use this tool to scare the heck out of other people!


11. Seeing little trick-or-treaters will melt your heart and give you flashbacks to that one Halloween where you scored the most candy on the block.

You'll feel a little bit old, but that's OK.

12. And the best thing of all: You don't have to share your treats and can eat them whenever you want!
