Break out the Tim Burton and candy corn, y’all — the most magical time of the year is here! For me (and all the other Halloween obsessed weirdos out there) that can only mean OCTOBER. Halloween basically started yesterday at my house, and won’t be over until November 1st. I’ll be celebrating all month long with candles, scary movies, and plenty of freaky synth-ed out jams. But don’t be scared — for those of you who don’t plan costumes all year long, I’ve got some fun non-Halloween ideas for you, too. Scroll down for ten fun things to do in October, and at the very least, wear something black.

Be the first to hear Molly Burch’s dreamy new album, First Flower, when it drops on October 5th.
