13 Frights of Halloween


It’s a FRIGHTmare!

Or am I just your nightmare!

I’ve seen some Tv stations do a 13 days of Halloween and such (but none do it like the Syfy channel used to when as far as I know it first came about. Every Halloween they’d show the old black and white horror movies mixed with some of the new ones (Turner Classic movies might only show them around Halloween as well)

mainly I thought why not make activities to help you celebrate the season? (or ideas for a goofy treat bag and so on,)

but FIRST…. I have an Appetizer!! bwhahahaha

I’ve had to revise this lens a bit so some of the ‘nights’ have links for them to take you to the section. Some are still being worked on but give them a try because who knows, there might be a surprise inside!

Minding the Monsters

My dad & I LOVE Jeff Dunham. I think his material is great, and that he has more than, or shall I say his dummies have a variety of personalities. Through them he just shows all the layers of himself, Which I think is great. What we wouldn’t normally say, he projects through the characters and in that fashion can get away with it!If you like or Love his work, and Halloween this was a fun one!  The characters dressed up, too funny and some maybe slightly corny jokes but all in good fun.

the 13 nights of halloween

 or you could get the kids’ book  which I found this year (& last year wrote the 13 Frights of Halloween)

Here’s a great blog for ideas to make & decorate etc.

  natoween.com

Decorate

I’m not sure what this was made with but we still have ours

If you haven’t started already get the front door decorated at least.

Usually if there’s no decor then that usually means doesn’t ‘celebrate ie: hand out candy.

Also be sure to get those yummy Treats (kids will love ya more if you get those mini Snickers & 3 musketeers etc bars.

You can also be creative with how you give the kids their treats. back in the day if it was more than 1 or 2 treats people used to get small treat bags & put a few pieces of candy & maybe a doll or or 50 cents (that was in the 70s & 80s when there was still penny candy (literally)You can find coffin shaped box or a small sized witches cauldron & put the treats etc in even if it’s just a small trinket box that looks sort of like a treasure chest would be good!

What is your decorating Style?

10 Owls HOOTING in a dead tree     Owl and Gargoyle items 

 The Halloween Tree

The Halloween TreeHalloween for me is pretty much all tradition. I try to keep certain movies til Halloween to read as well as a few books. Sometimes however you need to change things up or just add something to it. Halloween of 2011 I came across a book called the Halloween tree….. I looked at it and scanned a few pages and realized it was a kids book, but its by Ray Bradbury… So I figured to give it a try.

I’m glad I purchased it as I had fun reading it. It’s an adventurous journey through the history of Of Halloween from the time of the Egyptians. It took you through various History and ways of celebrating Halloween, So regardless if you are an adult or a kid It should be a joy for the both of you.

“Do not lose your way in the dark, O dear sweet dead. Come home and welcome here lost in the dark but always dear. Do not Wander  Do not Roam  Dear Ones Come Home, Come home”

Day 9 October 23

Devilish Demons Dancing

 

The Encyclopedia of Hell upon opening the book (you can look inside) names of Demons, a glossary of terms,  Satan’s master plan & this is supposed to be a ‘pirated copy’ of the book it says that was housed in Rome in the Vatican.

The Insane History Of Female Demons

I have to say in the case of the book vs. movies, the book of ‘The Devil Wears prada was much better. The movie didn’t do it much justice.   friend had given me the book to borrow, it was not my type to read, but I read it and enjoyed it. I felt the frustrations the character did and my friend said she ends up going through that at work.

I thought that necklace was cute I have one but it’s just junk jewelry.

Day 5 October 27

Ghostly Ghasts

 Have you a ghostly experience?

Please give me the details and I’ll include it here.

as for mine…. (remember these are all the same location)

#1   It happened in June I forget what year maybe 2004 or 2006 come to mind.

I was at the computer working somewhere between midnight and 2am, and I hear a voice like someone is talking, as if a door is closed and the tv low so sounds like a muffled mumbling.

I turn around in my desk chair and from where I sit I can see the whole apartment but the bedroom ‘wing’ in which the voice was coming. If a tv was on I would be able to see it flicker, but that was not it. I walk toward the bedroom but here & there I would bend down and listen to the floor but nothing. Look around the corner near my room and nothing is on, Nothing on in the room I hear it coming from.

When I get to the doorway I get a ‘flash’ image as if someone is motioning their hands in frustration on the window side of the master bedroom. They were either frustrated or trying to warn the person in there I’m am sure as that is what it sounded like. I shake it off to being my imagination or that I was maybe getting a bit tired.

 I go back to sit down and try to finish up what I was doing, I hear the voice again DIRECTLY behind me as if someone standing behind my chair with an airy voice. I turn around no one is there but though I couldn’t see whoever it may be I ‘locked eyes’ with the spirit in a spot in the kitchen it was still talking, 2 clear words came out, but I didn’t actually grasp what they were so I will never know (let alone be able to guess) what it wanted.

The next morning I explained this to my mother, she looked at me really odd and freaked out.

Turns out it’s my DEAD Aunt Eleanor’s (that lived in Texas) Birthday for more on Ghosts my lens Ghostly Frights

#2 My mom occasionally hears what she says sounds like a poker game going on in our kitchen. Also swears we have a ghost pet as well as she felt something (thinking it was my cat) jump onto the bed but nothing was there.

#3 This year (well 2015 in January ) There was one person besides myself in the room they were watching tv (which was to my right)  I had my head phones on and I’m not saying that it was a spirit but all of a sudden I heard a voice in my left ear as if someone came over to me to tell me something (because I had the headphones on) but my dad who was on the couch didn’t  I asked him if he said anything or coughed or sneezed (he had a cold at the time) Nope.. he said maybe it was the TV but how when it’s a foot away from my right, and another foot or 2 behind. It certainly didn’t sound like it came from what he was watching at the time. I can’t even remember what the voice said. Sadly I have yet to be able to debunk this aside from what dad says (but it was too close, and I didn’t have anything on (if I did at all)  that would sound that way.

If you have a dark costume carry a flashlight or some sort of blinking light so cars and others can see you.

Day 1  HALLOWEEN & Samhain

Halloween Calls
Halloween Calls

also known as SAMHAIN (pronounced S-ow-en) and YES  is the name of a band  but is NOT the same

Here’s another link to read on Samhain

zis-childrens-halloween-kids-activities

Remember if you are handing out candy to leave your door a little open & a porch light (or front door light) on so treaters will know. We have a storm door so I leave that closed & locked & leave the inside door open with the light on, with the candy in sight.
Please be sure to keep pets indoors so they will not be teased or harmed (or by chance hurt someone they know because they don’t recognize them)
Go trick or treating at houses of people you know (or at least your own neighborhood)
Parents you should still check candy when the kids get home (if you do not go with them)
If you are friendly with your neighbors and the kids come to your house, give those kids something special (or a bit extra) I usually put together a treat bag for the kid next door and across the street from me.
Be safe with the costumes if you wear a mask make sure you can see otherwise use make-up you may be the costume of all that is most memorable!
