Mom and Me Halloween 1983Hello fellow Halloween lover, my name is Danielle, and I started this website over 11 years ago (as of 2023) to share the schedules for my favorite Halloween programming events. I grew up during the 80s when we didn’t have cable TV, DVR or even DVDs. During the holidays, I’d watch commercials carefully hoping I’d catch the announcement for when my favorite Halloween movie would air on TV. If I missed it, that was it. They only aired it once. You couldn’t set a reminder on your TV to record it or buy it anywhere in stores. You were simply out of luck until next year.

When I became an adult, I would send out the schedules every year by email so my nieces and nephews wouldn’t miss their favorites. I’d print the schedule and hang it on my fridge and encourage their parents to do the same.

My Uncle 1982In 2008, my only Uncle (who was always more like a brother to me), fell very ill. The doctors warned us he would not make it, and he spent months in the ICU and later rehabilitative care. I was devastated. He was more than an uncle; he was my friend. And he loved the holidays just as much as I did. Fortunately, he did survive but he was never well again and was mostly home bound. After he was released, I would send him the schedules and we’d discuss all of our old favorites. I wondered to myself, maybe there are others out there who would be interested in these schedules. Where you could see them all in one place. I decided to build that place. My uncle helped me compile my A to Z movie lists. It was a lot of fun, and he was a faithful follower of my websites and Facebook pages until his death in 2014. (Websites plural, I also run a Christmas themed website similar to the Halloween site.)

After his death, I debated whether I should keep the site going or shut it down. Some of my regular visitors may have noticed my lack of participation and regular updates for a few years. It was a real struggle. But I decided to keep it going, working on it helps me feel close to him and brings back good memories of our times together during the holidays.

Today we live in a time where most people have cable tv with program guides, or access to streaming services where you can watch It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown any old time of the year you want. DVDs are available for so many of the old favorites, and you can download and watch online even more that are not. So why take the time to still do this? Aside from feeling close to my uncle, I do it out of tradition. I feel like I am helping to preserve a part of the past. Of my past.

So there you have it. I just really do love the holidays. The decorations. The lights. The sounds. The commercials. The tv specials. It stirs up nostalgia. I truly appreciate the comments I receive each year from visitors, and I look forward to seeing posts from familiar names, friends I’ve never met.

I hope you enjoy the site and have a Happy Halloween!

  • Hey Danielle,
    Love your story! Would love to chat with you about your sites and how we can help you earn increased ad revenue. Is there an email you can share to discuss?

    This is a really fantastic story, Danielle.
    I’m sorry for your uncles death, he sounds like a blessing and I’m incredibly happy that you got to do all this with him.
    Since 2017 I’ve always checked on your Halloween updates for your schedules and it always brought me joy (I’m obsessed with Schedules lol. It’s always fun making them and looking through old schedules)
    Every year to this day I find it a great tradition to see your monstober updates and more! I’m so happy you still do this and I look forward to seeing more from you in the future.

    Do you think you could help me create a website like this?
    I’ve always (6 years now) wanted to make a schedule like this but can’t seem to know where to go or what to do, it’d be a blessing if you could help me?!

    Thank you for reading this! Stay ghoulish lol.

        I have always used this website to find my next option to watch during the month of October. I have came across a new schedule you might want to add and has already been released. It’s called Sevngoolie’s Halloween BOOnaza on MeTV. It’s mainly for the weekends during October. It has a ton of old shows and their Halloween episodes. Like m*a*s*h, Alfred Hitchcock, Twilight zone, Carl Burnett and friends, Big Valley, etc…

          Thank you! Will definitely include it next year. Happy Halloween 🎃
