    So, why not throw a party?

    1. Invite interesting guests.

    Halloween Oreos anyone?!

    3. Clean your house.

    It doesn't have to be spotless but, come on, make it look nice. And, don't use the "I'm going with the dusty cobweb look" excuse.

    4. Don't lose your head.

    Try and stay calm; throwing a party can be stressful.

    5. Be a good host.

    Interact with all your guests, not just that super hot guy lingering in the corner.

    6. Decorations are your friends.

    Try and find cool props or whatever to give your party an edge.

    7. Themes are fun.

    I mean, yeah, Halloween is a theme itself. BUT, you could narrow it down to things such as Hitchcock films, Universal Movie Monsters, Slasher-rama, etc.

    8. Karaoke can be hilarious.

    Just get everyone smashed first.

    9. Costumes are a must.

    Create some kind of contest and make the prize badass.

    10. There should be dancing.

    Duh.

    13. And, watch the people who hate them freak out.

    It can even be more entertaining than the movie.

    14. Don't let it get too wild.

    Don't want the po-po crashing it.

    15. Try and keep people from gettin' busy on the living room couch, in front of everyone.

    Unless, you're into that kind of thing.

    16. Booze it up, but don't let drunk people drive.

    Seriously, don't.

    17. Most importantly, goof off and have fun!

    It's a party, not a funeral.

    Yep, I think you're ready!
