Halloween as an adult means grown-up drinks, passing out candy, and a movie marathon of my favorite spooky flicks — and I have a blast every year. But the Halloween celebrations of my childhood haven't been forgotten, and these GIFS will make every '90s kid say "Me on Halloween." We might all be different, but there's one thing many of us have in common: Our obsession with All Hallow's Eve. Amiright?
We may have passed the torch on to our younger counterparts, but I'd bet there's still a '90s child somewhere in most of us, watching Casper Meets Wendy and devouring boxes of Nerds, begging the parentals for a later bedtime. Don't let adulting rain on your parade, because life isn't all about paying bills and meeting deadlines. No matter what your age is, it's still fully acceptable to enjoy the magic and spirit of Halloween.
From candy to costumes, from parties to haunted houses, the end of October was always the best time of the year as a wee one (and let's be honest — it still is as an adult, too). These GIFs will take you back to your childhood and remind you why Halloween in the '90s was always your favorite day.
