This movie is the perfect little flick to watch with the family. It’s not very long and has the cutest story! It’s been a tradition in my family for years. The kids go trick-or-treating and have a halloween party, and Linus awaits the great pumpkin . We love the Peanuts characters and the story of the Great Pumpkin makes you want to wait in a pumpkin patch too.

Back at it again with Disney Channel originals. If you’re a fan of Sister Sister, than you’ll love this movie. Tia and Tamera Mowry are teen witches, born on Halloween, that are separated at birth and then come together when they are older. They  fight together to save lives and meet their birth parents. It’s a sweet family movie and brings everyone together.

Nightmare Before Christmas

Nightmare Before Christmas is both a Halloween and Christmas movie.  Jack Skellington wishes to experience a different holiday because Halloween has become boring, he learns of Christmas and loves the idea of something new. There are singing ghosts, skeletons, mummies, and werewolves that take on the idea of Christmas with a Halloween spin! There is love, songs and a mix of two very opposite holidays.
