The Debut of the October Calendar

The October Calendar

Hey fellow ghouls! This year I decided to create a Halloween advent calendar just for fun. I wanted something to help remind me of all the cool things to do during my favorite month. I’m calling it The October Calendar. You can click on each day and a surprise will be inside. You might find ideas for activities, food and treats or spooky Halloween quotes. Let me know what you think of it.

Happy Halloween 2015

Chernobog Pumpkin 2015

Hello all you ghoulies out there! Happy Halloween 2015! Well the big day is finally here! Last night on All Hallows Eve, Eve we carved massive pumpkins and set up the decorations for our yard display. It was our dry run test to see how things would look when the trick or treaters arrive on Halloween night. Get a load of that Chernobog pumpkin my brother carved. Pretty awesome, huh? That was just one of about 4 or 5 pumpkins we carved this year. Keep reading and you’ll see a sneak peak of our yard display and the spooky eyes in the bushes effect.

I’ll give you a little sneak peak inside. Continue reading
