15 Signs You’re A Halloween Mom

Of all the various arbitrary and stereotypical “mom types” out there, from crunchy moms to sanctimommies, Halloween moms are my absolute favorite. You ladies are the best and don’t let anyone who can’t appreciate your candy corn cupcakes tell you otherwise. Halloween is the BEST holiday and Halloween moms who go all out with their decorations, baking, costuming, and makeup greatly contribute to that fact.

I happen to work alongside the ultimate Halloween mom, my associate editor Eve Vawter, who has been counting down the days since summer. I’m not sure what her house looks like yet, but I have a feeling she goes beyond a simple pumpkin on the doorstep. Bonafide Halloween moms will recognize the following signs that they are batshit for Halloween.

1. You can identify repeat pins in Pinterest

    What are the yellow, orange and white things? Are they a type of sweet? I’ve never come across them before!

    • Rachel Sea

      It’s an American sweet. They’re basically dyed sugar shaped like maize kernels.

      Oh my God, I don’t know whether I should feel sorry for you or be delighted for you. You should probably order some online just for the experience. They will arrive all stale and hard. Don’t worry, that’s how we get them, too. :) Seriously, I have to eat a bag every year to remind myself that I don’t really like them all that much…

      They’re disgusting. It’s part of the American Symbol for Halloween (That and pumpkins) but they taste like wax and their absolutely awful.

    I love candy corn. It is my unhealthy addiction. I probably eat my weight in it.

      Me too. I LOVE Halloween, but I HATE candy corn.


  • AnonyMouse

    This is me. I am this person. I’m also one of the weirdos that likes candy corn, but don’t tell.
