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.

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.
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?

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.
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.

children’s Book bunnicula-the-vampire-bunny & the only title I can remember reading as a child!
I was already going to the ‘dark side’, but then I guess when you are an infant and Frankenstein tells your mom ‘Leave the Child’ well THAT must have been the ‘Baptism’ initiation whatever yu want to call it into the darkness.

(if either of the links don’t work I am so sorry; the site they were originally on closed & they transferred so I’m trying to juggle fixing those sadly the site hates me as it never wants to work right so It’s been a slow process and one reason I am writing this page as there’s a version on hubpages! but it’s messed up.)
Day 5 October 27
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.
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.
