Though I firmly believe that holiday-themed movies are for year-round viewing (and I'll stand by that belief), there's absolutely no doubt that Halloween movie watching picks up each fall as the sweltering heat of the year's middle months gives way for the crisper, cooler days of fall. For millennials, Hocus Pocus is a perennial favorite. The movie, in case you haven't seen it, is about three witch sisters brought back to Salem, Massachusetts to wreak havoc on Halloween. Though it's not about parenting, there are a lot of Hocus Pocus quotes that fit parenting experiences shockingly well. You love your kids and all — and they love you, too — but, let's face it: sometimes you're the Sanderson sisters and other times they are.
You might not think that a movie about sibling witches causing trouble in a town on Halloween would really be all that applicable to parenting, but I'm here to tell you that you'd be mistaken. Anyone who's interacted with a hungry, over-tired kid, a stressed-out mom, or a dad at his wit's end recognizes that everyone has the capabilities to wreak a little havoc every now and again. There's a troublemaking witch inside of everyone and these Hocus Pocus quotes prove it.
