Halloween Gifts of Tricks and Treats

Holiday gifts, photos, smells, music and fun has always made me smile! Halloween candy, trick or treating with friends and fun for kids all day long.

Halloween is a contradiction of a holiday though! Filled with sweets, treats and adorable witches, black cats and pumpkins don't blink because suddenly the night is filled with scary, frightening monsters, goblins and evil witches on broomsticks!

What's really scary about Halloween this year is the economy! How will job losses and home foreclosures affect how much we can spend on Halloween costumes, trick or treat bags and candy for the neighborhood trick or treaters. Moms and Dads are finding new and creative ways to keep the fun going without breaking the bank. Say Boo to the recession and don't be scared to celebrate the holidays this year because there are lots of ways to have an awesome Happy Halloween and keep it within your family budget.

What's up with Halloween, is it a trick or treat? Keep the holiday simple and keeping your family and friends safe is the greatest gift of all.

Scary Fright Night Halloween DVD's

I know it's part of the "tradition of Halloween" but I just don't get why people love the really violent, scary decorations, masks, terrifying blood curling costumes and oh, those scary Halloween movies!

You can check out these movies at Amazon, enjoy but don't look at me, I'll be home watching something even scarier like the Evening News!

Halloween 4: The Return of Michael Myers (Special DiviMax Edition)
Halloween 4: The Return of Michael Myers (Special DiviMax Edition)

This fourth installment of the series takes place ten years after the original and finds the man in the William Shatner mask in a coma and being transferred from Richmond Mental Institute to Smith's Grove. However the van gets into a horrible accident skidding off the road and exploding. Predictably Myers' body is nowhere to be found in the wreckage alarming both the skeptical police and the indefatigable Dr. Loomis (Donald Pleasence). Soon Myers is spotted back in Haddonfield and it becomes obvious that his next target is his young niece Jamie (Danielle Harris). His return has whipped the town into a frenzied mob which proves to be unfortunate for the Halloween revelers who have chosen the popular "Michael Myers" mask as their costume. Often considered the best of the sequels THE RETURN OF MICHAEL MYERS is a return to form for the series after the debacle of HALLOWEEN 3.Format: DVD MOVIE Genre: HORROR Rating: R

 
Halloween II
Halloween II

"You can't kill the boogeyman," explains John Carpenter in Halloween, and to prove it he brings Michael Myers back in this handsome but grisly sequel. Jamie Lee Curtis returns as Laurie Strode but spends most of her time cowering in a hospital gown, and Donald Pleasence runs around like a maniac as the panicky doctor desperate to hunt down Myers before he kills again. Carpenter writes and produces with partner Debra Hill, and together they replace the mystery and uncertainty of the original with an exponentially bigger body count and some strange tales about the Druids and pagan ceremonies, and the now-familiar family ties between Michael and Laurie. First-time director Rick Rosenthal (Bad Boys) paces the film at a brisk jog and directs it with a clean, crisp style, taking the murders out of the dark to display them in all their nasty detail. --Sean Axmaker

 

Halloween History

History In Case You Were Wondering!

Halloween costumes are all the rage from newborns to senior citizens, but why do we wear them and how did the tradition get its start?

One story says that, on that day, the disembodied spirits of all those who had died throughout the preceding year would come back in search of living bodies to possess for the next year. It was believed to be their only hope for the afterlife. The Celts believed all laws of space and time were suspended during this time, allowing the spirit world to intermingle with the living.

Naturally, the still-living did not want to be possessed. So on the night of October 31, villagers would extinguish the fires in their homes, to make them cold and undesirable. They would then dress up in all manner of ghoulish costumes and noisily paraded around the neighborhood, being as destructive as possible in order to frighten away spirits looking for bodies to possess.

Isn't it great how something so creepy turned out to be so much fun!
