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.

Here’s the link: The October Calendar

Enjoy!

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. We have a lot planned for Halloween including a daytime costume carnival and evening of trick or treating and yard haunt fun. It will be the first time I use my self built laser vortex effect. I’ll be posting all of that good stuff soon. Until then, have yourselves a magical Halloween night everyone! Continue reading

I mean, the leaves are turning beautiful colors, the weather is starting to cool off, and kids are back in school which means NO MORE CROWDS! It is the perfect time to get away so I’m going to do just that. For the next few days I’ll be exploring the city of New Orleans.

  1. Take a voodoo tour.
  2. Visit the spooky New Orleans cemeteries.
  3. Explore the swamps and bayous in a small boat.
  4. Stroll down Pirate’s Alley.
  5. Check out the mansion of author Anne Rice.

I’m hoping to do these things and more! I’ll be posting updates while I’m in New Orleans so stay tuned. As I was making this list, I began thinking of other creepy travel destinations I’d like to travel to. I also thought of some creepy places I’ve already been that you guys might like to visit someday. So I’ve put this Halloween travel bucket list together to get us inspired to travel like the Halloween enthusiasts we are. Continue reading
