Although Halloween only comes once a year, spooky season lasts a full 31 days. And I don't know about you, but one of our absolute favorite pumpkin holiday traditions is watching the entirety of Freeform's 31 Nights of Halloween lineup.

The lineup features family-friendly films like Casper and Hocus Pocus, as well as more frightening flicks like all three of the Shrek movies. Bottom line: There's a lot to look forward to in terms of movies, so grab some popcorn ... and brace yourselves.

Yes, you heard that loud and clear, folks — you can watch the Sanderson sisters do their witchy thing a total of 14 times over the course of October.

I won't name them all, but if you decide to tune in on any random day, chances are, they'll be airing the cult classic Halloween film.

'Nightmare Before Christmas' is showing several times as well.

Regardless of if you consider Nightmare Before Christmas to be a Halloween or Christmas movie, you can count on watching Tim Burton's holiday flick at least once. According to Freeform's schedule, it will be showing on Oct. 3, 12, 24, and 30. So you'll have a number of opportunities to check in on Jack Skellington aka "The Pumpkin King" and the rest of his creepy gang.

And note: If you're really into Tim Burton, Corpse Bride will be playing on several days, too.

Are you feeling witchy? Freeform will also be airing the original 1996 movie, The Craft.
