Religious Conservatives Believe There’s A “War On Halloween,” Somehow

In case you haven’t heard, there’s not just a “war on Christmas” now – there’s also a “war on Halloween.” Good lord.

Sexy Kim Davis, Sexy Ariana Grande’s Donut & More Stupidly Sexy Halloween Costume Ideas

Ask for, nay, casually mention something and the internet delivers.

Of Course There’s A Sexy Pizza Rat Halloween Costume

For the last few years, Yandy.com, an online Halloween costume retailer also popular with the Burning Man set, has gifted The Frisky staff with the costumes of our choosing, so I’m intimately aware of their ability to sex-ify every possible person, place or thing imaginable.

Ever Thought You’d See A “Halloween”-Themed Proposal?

Today in kitschy marriage proposals I would never, ever want: Kelly Canipe is a huge horror fan. So much so that she runs the podcast Boys & Ghouls, and, apparently, owns a near-exact replica of the costume Jamie Lee Curtis wore as Laurie Strode in “Halloween” that she just whips out if sheMore »

Aside from trick-or-treating, dressing up in costume and carving pumpkins, Jimmy Kimmel has created my favorite, newest Halloween tradition that I truly hope will last forever.
