13 Frights of Halloween
Its 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 activitiies 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!
If you haven't started already get the front door decorated at least.
Also be sure to get those yummy Treats (kids will love ya more if you get those mini Snickers & 3 musketeers etc bars.
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, and 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 looks to be a 'dandy' one this year! (the characters dressed up too funnyand some maybe slightly corny jokes but all in good fun)

10 Owls HOOTING in a dead tree
Halloween 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.

Have you a ghostly experience?
Please give me the details and I'll include it here.
as for mine....
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 soeone 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 beable 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 Elenor's (that lived in Texas) Birthday for more on Ghosts my lens Ghostly Frights
