It’s still August, but as Halloween enthusiasts know, it’s never too early to celebrate spooky season. And given that next month marks the highly anticipated return of everyone’s favorite fictional sisters (Winifred, Mary, and Sarah Sanderson, of course), what better way to get in the spellbinding spirit of Halloween than with a “Hocus Pocus”-themed advent calendar.

The long-awaited sequel to the beloved 1993 classic doesn’t land on Disney+ until September 30th, but you can get your hands on the Hocus Pocus: 13 Frights of Halloween advent calendar right now — the toughest part will be waiting until October to uncover each surprise.

Already an Amazon bestseller, this adorable calendar provides tricks and treats for Halloween lovers of all ages, with each of the 13 windows offering spooky surprises such as recipe cards, stickers, keychains, and more. And yes, it seems like you’ll get your very own mini-sized version of “the boooooook,” so you can cast spells aplenty this season.

Nearly three decades after its debut (!), “Hocus Pocus” continues to charm fans new and old whose love of the film continues to — ahem — run amok, amok, amok. Of course, you can catch the original anytime on Disney+, or if you prefer to wait until October proper, you’ll likely be able to catch it daily as part of Freeform’s 31 Nights of Halloween. (Yes, they’ve been known to play it each day during the month.)

Disney fans can also get their hands on another fun themed countdown calendar with the Disney Villains: 13 Frights of Halloween calendar ($24.96), also available on Amazon. Enjoy daily haunts courtesy of Ursula, Maleficent, Cruella de Vil, and other fan favorite villains, with scary surprises such as  stickers, games, holiday decorations, and themed recipe cards (poison apples, anyone?) to carry you through until November.
