Haunts From The Headless Ones
Have you ever wondered how headless haunts get around? How can they see? Or do they carry their head with them? The headless horseman did - or was that a pumpkin he was caring around?
********** The Headless Man:
Buster's growl make them all stop in their tracks. "What is it, boy?" asked Alex, trying to see what had upset the little dog.
The last of the rain clouds were slowly drifting away on the night sky. A big full moon now bathed everything it touched in a pale, ghostly light. Alex looked hard in the direction Buster was staring. So did Shelby and Toby.
"Wow! What's that?" cried Toby, loud enough to be heard all the way back at Grandma's house. "Somebody's down there by the big oak tree!"
Shelby punched her cousin's shoulder hard enough to make him drop the jar he'd brought for catching fireflies. "Be quiet, will you?" she whispered. Buster growled again. continne Headlesss Man

Watch Out For The Black Cats
If you're looking for something easy and quick, you'll love this recipe. With only two ingredients, you can't go wrong. Don't skimp on the barbeque sauce. Look for a good brand, pick one of your favorites. A cheap brand will not turn out as well.
1 can of peanuts
Up to 1/2 cup of BBQ sauce
Combine the peanuts and barbeque sauce until the peanuts are entirely coated (not too heavy.) Spread them out on a foil-lined cookie sheet.
Bake at 300 for about ten minutes. Times will vary depending on how thickly coated the peanuts are. Check frequently and remove from the oven when the peanuts appear to be covered with dried blood.
Let sit until completely cooled. Transfer to a serving bowl.
Scary and spooky Halloween treats for all ages. Swamp dip? Bleeding gums gumbo? Or how about some anti-vampire popcorn? Don't forget to garnish your table with plastic bats, spiders and cobwebs for the full effect! Amputated Fingers

Frozen Hand and More
Frozen Hand Recipe
Don't use regular ice cubes to keep the Halloween punch chilled, creep-out your guests with a frozen hand in the punch! There are 2 simple options to this recipe:
Frozen Hand Recipe #1
1 rubber glove with no lining
1 qt. water
Food coloring -- This can match the color of your punch, or stick out like a sore thumb (Pun intended)
1 bread twist or rubber band
Add the food coloring to the water, mix, and pour into the glove. Tie it off tightly with the twisty or rubber band. Place on a flat surface (that will catch any drainage) and freeze the glove until it's solid. Remove the glove and place in the punch before serving.
Frozen Hand Option # 2
This option is simple but it's going to match the color of your punch -- because all you need to do take some actual punch and freeze it in the glove. This option is tastier than recipe #1 since the punch will not dilute when the hand melts.
Another variation of this is to simply freeze some Squirt or Mountain Dew into the glove, which adds a more realistic look to the hand. Make sure the flavor compliments the punch.
Cup of Worms
* Clear glasses or cups
* Chocolate pudding
* Candied jelly worms
* Cocoa powder
1. Here is a playful party treat perfectly suited to preschool humor. Make the pudding together and spoon it into clear cups before cooling it in the refrigerator.
2. Top it with a few candy worms and sprinkle with a little cocoa powder (dirt) on the top for a very playful snack of dirt dessert.
* Add worms to the sides of the clear plastic cups before adding the pudding so you can see the worms underground.
* Add some grated coconut for baby worms.
Words such as these struck terror into the hearts of Salem townspeople in the early spring of 1692 as hysterical young girls called out names.
By summer, 180 people had been accused and imprisoned - defenseless against accusations of witchcraft in a society driven by superstition and fear. The court, formed to try the victims, acted quickly. Bridget Bishop was tried on June 2 and hanged on June 10 thereby setting the precedent for a summer of executions.
The Salem Witch Museum brings you there, back to Salem 1692. Visitors are given a dramatic history lesson using stage sets with life-size figures, lighting and a narration - an overview of the Witch Trials of 1692.
Our new exhibit, Witches: Evolving Perceptions, examines the stereotypical witch, aspects of witchcraft in the 17th century, modern witchcraft and the phenomenon of witch hunts. Do you believe in witches? Don't answer until you visit us.
