5 Cute Halloween-Themed Date Ideas

Fall is finally here — the leaves are changing, apple cider is brewing, and ghosts are getting ready for their annual jaunt into the realm of the living. If you want to get into the spirit of the season, it could be fun to take a girlfriend, boyfriend, or new love interest on a Halloween-themed date. It's o much more interesting than going to dinner again. Here are five cute Halloween-themed date ideas!



1. Carve pumpkins!

If you want to do something Halloween-themed but neither of you are into spooky stuff, Pumpkin carving is a perfect date idea. It’s active, fun, and adorable. You have time to talk, but you also don’t have to — if you’re feeling tongue-tied, just concentrate extra hard on your pumpkin masterpiece. Best of all, you come away with a jack o’lantern to put on your doorstep!



2. Watch a scary movie!

If your date can handle it, try watching a scary movie together! It’s fun because you can snuggle close and hold hands during the scary parts. Halloween and Scream are perfect movies for the season. Don’t forget the popcorn!



3. Visit a haunted house!

If you want to take the scare factor up a notch, go to a haunted house! This is a perfect date activity because you get to chat while you’re waiting in line, then hold hands when you’re in the scary house together. You’ll be so full of adrenaline when you get out, you’ll be on top of the world for hours. It’ll be a date to remember, for sure.



4. Conduct a séance!

If you and your date really want to get into the spirit of the season, why not contact some of the season’s spirits? Get some candles and a Ouija board and get ready to connect with the afterlife. If you’re really lucky, maybe one of you will get possessed!



5. Promise your souls to the Dark Lord Satan!

For the true Halloween devotees out there, there is no better occasion to promise your soul to Beelzebub himself! And what better bonding activity could there be for a couple than one that seals your souls together in a destiny of eternal damnation? All you need is a baby goat to sacrifice, 100 milliliters of fresh blood from each of you, and a sincere and deep appreciation for our one true King, the Devil!
