Halloween used to be one of my favorite times as a child. I loved going to haunted houses. I loved Halloween parties. I loved Trick-Or-Treating. I loved the quick adrenaline rush of getting scared. Some things never changed. Tonight I’ll be going to Halloween Horror Nights in Orlando.
Exciting, right? But only if you love being scared…which, oddly enough, I do! Now I’m not much for horror movies, but I love haunted houses. In fact, we decorate for Halloween most years. Here are a few pictures of what you find around my house.
This lovely lady hides under my SUV and has a motion sensor. When someone walks past, the sensor is triggered and she starts crawling out at you.
Here is one of our zombies coming up from the ground…
This beheaded vampire stands at the front of our overhang near the front door, a warning to all…BEWARE, all who enter!
Who better to meet you at the front door? And he has a motion sensor, too…he swings that chainsaw!
Yeah…Halloween is fun. I have been known to still don a costume, even now. (I don’t like the scary ones for myself…Mostly I’d be Pocahontas or a Hawaiian girl or I’ve even been known to dress up as a China Doll) Hubby likes to get scary. I remember one Halloween he did his makeup a little too well. We showed up to the hospital we worked at, through the ER and they thought he’d been in a horrific accident. They were running to get a gurney for him when he busted up laughing and told them it was all makeup. That was my Pocahontas year. Dang, I wish I had pictures from that time. It was awesome.
Oddly enough, with my love of all things Halloween, there is one thing that is still on my wish list of things never done. I haven’t gone to a Halloween costume ball. I’d love to do something like that. Doesn’t that sound like amazing fun? (not to mention the naughty trouble that could ensue…masked man…sigh…LOL!) What about you? What things would you love to do? What things haven’t you done?
Me, being me…well, I just felt the need to also share my favorite Halloween songs…Feel free to share yours, too!
The first scary movie I ever saw was The Exorcist. Hated it. Movies that mess in religion tend to creep me out. Personally, if I want to watch something scary, I’d rather watch Supernatural or Vampire Diaries or Teen Wolf.
So what gets you in the Halloween mood?
