Let’s Party like it’s Halloween!

Okay Folks, we all know today is Halloween, or All Hallows Eve, which is the evening before the day of the dead or, if you are Christian, All Saints Day. Either way, saint or sinner, spooky things are about to take place tonight, and you’re invited to answer a few simple questions to gain entry into the haunted house of horror:

  • Name something you wouldn’t want to meet in a dark forest, or abandoned building at night.
  • Do you believe in vampires, ghouls, and ghosts?
  • Share the spookiest thing that’s ever happened to you.
  • How long do you think you would last in a horror movie?
  • What creeps you out the most, Freddy, Jason, or Clowns?
  • Zombie apocalypse, or rise of the werewolves?
  • Love shiny vampires or, stab ’em through the heart with a stake?

And here’s my answers:

  • There’s no way I’m running into a dark forest at night! I know what’s waiting for me in there: all sorts of scary dudes with dripping fangs, howling at the moon, and brain-eating zombies.
  • Vampires? Maybe not the Hollyweird versions, but I’m sure Vlad started the blood-drinking crazy way back when. And yes, ghosts haunt places, just as ghouls wait around a dark corner ready to suck out the soul of the unsuspecting!
  • Scotland, the late 70s, middle of nowhere farm house (or, it felt like that) winter storm no power and by candle light we see an apparition float across the room and vanish through 3 foot thick walls. Yeah, I kid you not!
  • Me, in a horror movie? You wouldn’t get me going down into the basement no way. Nor would I be running out into the woods in the middle of the night (see above). So I guess I’d be the first to go splatt!
  • Clowns man, have you seen those dudes? Scariest monster ever invented. And they are real!
  • Zombie apocalypse, of course, I just might be able to survive more than the first hour or a day. Who out-runs a werewolf? Right, I rest my case.
  • Given my answers so far, I think it’s obvious I’m a stab ’em through the heart kind of Buffy!

Over to you—share your answers over on your blog and link back to this post to get a shout out (pingback). And let’s party like it’s Halloween cue, The Monster Mash!

    Alex, your story from Scotland is so scary! I’m so glad I’m reading this post in the middle of the day he he, I get spooked so easily. What a great story to tell though!

    I have a ghost story too. Ages ago, I moved into an old family house. Every night, I would hear violin playing. I was so eerie and when my friends stayed over, they heard that too. I spoke to my dad about it completely freaked out and he calmly told me: ‘oh, that’s my grandad playing a violin, he is probably wondering who you are. Put a photo of me and you on a dresser so he gets the connection’. So I did. And the music from then on stopped… so spooky! 🙂 xx

      Three of us saw the apparition, Vera, and, to this day, I’m not sure if it was really or an illusion from flickering candles and the play of light from the storm outside. None of us slept that night I can tell you.

      And your story is another example of strange goings on. My mother had something similar happen to her … again, in Scotland. She was told it was her red-haired guardian angel, and once she cover mirrors and put family photos out, the visitations stopped.

      Stranger things!

        I’ve got chills reading it. There is so much out there that we still don’t know about.

        Strange things indeed!

          I know a lot of people fear strange things, but I take a certain comfort in the events, because they are strange, which means we don’t know everything. And that there’s always more happening than we can know or guess at.

            My cure for fear is always curiosity! 🙂 I also get a lot of comfort in knowing that all these strange things are happening and there is so much more around than what we can see and rationalise. 🙂 xx

            • November 2, 2018

              Oh, indeed, curiosity is so much better. Try and figure it out, research, learn, and always keep an open mind because, the truth is, not matter how much science we know, there is still way too much we don’t know. It keeps life interesting.

    Great questions! Horror and me don’t mix. Stephen King’s books are horror I believe. I have noticed a lot of readers on Instagram collect his books. I feel like I have to read one soon to see how scary it is. Have you read any of his books?

      Oh, horror isn’t my go to either, Jasmine. I’m not a big fan whatsoever, the movies are not my thing, and there’s always a better book to read than something scary. So no, I haven’t read any King books, they just don’t appeal to me.
