Things to Do… On Halloween!

16 10 2009

Right now, I’m anxiously awaiting the 31st of October. My costume is sitting neatly folded in my closet and I’m ticking down the days with bated breath. Think about it; what other day of the year has an atmosphere so delightfully eerie and dark, when freaks are celebrated and an extra appendage or two is a good thing?

  • Catch a pet spider, the bigger and hairier, the better. (Let him go after a day or two, though!)
  • Go to a really old graveyard. Pay attention to unusual names, take rubbings of the headstones, or take a total ’90’s goth-weeping-on-a-tombstone picture for your Myspace.
  • Be the cool house that hands out full candy bars.
  • Conquer a fear. Scared of snakes? Go visit an exotic reptile house. Terrified of heights? Rent a luxurious hotel room on an upper level.
  • Create your own drinking game to play while walking around. For example, everytime you see an eleven year old girl showing more skin than Pamela Anderson, take a shot!
  • Turn all the lights off and watch the scariest movies you can find alone. Sleep with one eye open, if you can at all.
  • If your hair is usually curly, straighten it, and vice versa. Always blonde? Try some temporary brown dye. You’ll feel like a stranger is in your mirror.
  • If your pet is good-natured, let them join in on the fun.

  • Make pumpkins work for you.
  • Carve something to sit on your porch that’s unusual. Watermelons in particular look stunning.
  • Do something kind for a younger one. Take your annoying little cousin to her school’s carnival, give your candy to the neighbor kids, whatever. The holiday has extra magic for them.
  • Embrace an alter ego. Don’t just dress up, become your character; use your imagination, devise an interesting backstory, hell, hand out brochures detailing your adventures.
  • Write everything with a quill pen and deep red ink.

The cat rules. We don’t celebrate Halloween here. It’s more of an imported holiday.
