Halloween Festivus Fun

My name is Kelly, and I am addicted to Halloween. This is my most favorite day, so forgive me if I squeeeeee publicly.

I have gathered here for you some of the scariest, coolest, weirdest things about Halloween. I'll also be adding some of my favorite Halloween recipes at the end.


By order of the queen.

All of us this year at the parade

The Oldest as the 11th Doctor
Do you love horror movies?  Did you know that they aren't all fictional? In fact, many of them are based on true stories. Here are 13 of the scariest.

If you love movies of any kind, did you know that there are stories about some of them being cursed? About tragic deaths that happened either on the set or shortly after the film wrapped? This list includes some of them, but doesn't even include Poltergeist - one of the most notorious movies of them all. Several of the cast members of that series met untimely deaths, some violently, others by mysterious illnesses.

Not every scary story is made into a movie though, and some of the strangest unsolved crimes will make your skin crawl. Maybe literally. You can read about them here.

If that isn't enough, there are some places that will just scare the crap out of you. Here's a list of 10 of them, but I'm going to tell you another story.  When I was in college, my roommate and I decided to go check out the haunted house on the Queen Mary.

Seemed like a good idea.

We got there and paid too much money to go on a fairly lame tour of the ship. There were a few places that we screamed when some scary character jumped out at us, but we weren't impressed really...until we somehow got separated from the rest of the group and ended up in the engine room.

I can't really describe what it felt like in there, but I can tell you that we definitely weren't alone. When we finally found a way out, we both breathed a huge sigh of relief, then promised we were never going to do that again.

Found out afterwards that there is supposedly a ghost in there. Many decades ago, when the ship was still sailing, a young sailor was killed in that room. Might have been good to know that before...

Speaking of ghosts, here is a collection of the best pictures ever taken of ghosts.

Here are a couple of my favorite Halloween recipes. You can check out this link on my other blog for all kinds of Halloween themed ideas as well. There are recipes for child and adult versions of witch's brew there.
