Raise your hand if you LOVE Halloween? We certainly do and when we realized that Hotel Transylvania 3 would be released on Blu-ray™ and DVD on October 9th, it inspired us to get into the Halloween spirit. Want to join us?

6Do the Monster Mash

Who doesn't love a good dance party? Remember the first time you heard Thriller by Michael Jackson, or Ghostbusters or Time Warp by the Rocky Horror Cast? There are so many great Halloween songs out there, you'd be remiss not to have a dance party after you've gone through all the trouble of getting dressed up, even if that party includes no one other than you and the kids.

One of the great things about the Hotel Transylvania 3 Monster Party Edition is that it includes a number of sing-a-long dance tracks.

Turn up the music and show those monsters who has the best dance moves.

7Carve a Pumpkin

As it gets closer to Halloween, don't forget to save a night for pumpkin carving and/or decorating. Carving pumpkins is a traditional part of Halloween and fun for all ages! Whether you want to use a decorating kit to keep it simple and gut free, aim for the standard triangle eyes and toothy grin, or challenge yourself with an intricate design, you'll certainly feel the Halloween spirit when you're done.

8Devour ALL of Your Candy

Finally, the number one reason that kids love Halloween: CANDY! Buy and eat as much as you want. Tell everyone that you're going to hand it out for Halloween. Egg your kids on as they go door to door. Encourage them to eat as much as they can when they finish trick-or-treating and then hoard the rest for yourself (kidding, not kidding). Life is too short to deprive yourself of candy so have fun and enjoy.


In all seriousness, Hotel Transylvania 3 is now available on Digital and arrives on Blu-ray™ Combo Pack and DVD on October 9th! Be sure to pick up a copy so you too can fully get into the Halloween spirit!
