Halloween – Bwahahahahaha!!!

 

The end of October draws near and whether you celebrate the “dark half” of the year as the Celts did or if you celebrate memory of All Souls day the first of November, one thing is certain; there will be darkness and lots of spirits in the air on this chilly and Hallowed Eve.

So click on the next link and cue up some devilishly fun music in the spirit of this spooky holiday. Hit the play all button and return to this page while you take in the sights and sounds of this holiday.

Halloween Fun

It’s not just the spirits that are making mischief around these parts.  We have some witches brewing up some evil stew as they chant their verse:

Double, double, toil and trouble;

Fire burn and caldron bubble…

 

This is NOT your grandmother’s vegetable stew.  Beware!

 

Some will spend the evening in sheer fright

 

Others will brave the chilly, scary night in search of tricks or treats, all dressed up in costume.

 

Still others will steal away for a romantic moment in the moonlight under the stars.

 

But beware, as with any group that is out and about in festive celebration, you are bound to encounter a few that just can’t seem to control themselves, as they imbibe in those “other spirits” that wreak havoc and torment upon their soul in a very different way.  So… take heed now and make sure you don’t whoop it up too much this festive holiday, for you wouldn’t want to wind up like these poor souls…

 

Happy Halloween to all !!!

    Hi Phil,
    the day of Nikki’s Halloween Guestbook Event is finally here.
    You don’t have to be scared.
    I only wanna bring you a selfmade pic to say ‘Happy Halloween’

    Because I don’t had much time to make another one, I brought a second pic made by Nikki, with me.

    Now my job is done here, so I’ll jump on my broom & fly to another friend 🙂

    Have a nice Halloween-day!
    Hughs & x-x-x

      Thank you for stopping by BabyEvelyne. I had fun scooting all over the world last night posting on everyone’s blogs. Interesting experience for sure.

  2. October 29, 2011 at 9:22 am

    That last picture is a hoot! Veggies can have, er, be fun!

    Halloween is a big deal for lots of people. I’m not one of them. Sure, I’ll pass out candy so my little condo doesn’t get egged or toilet-papered by the sweet little children, but that’s as far as my enthusiasm goes. Don’t get me started on Thanksgiving… 😉

    • October 30, 2011 at 11:02 am

      I’m not usually a big Halloween fan either, but every once in a while, I indulge my “joiner” impulse, curious to see where it leads me. I had fun doing something outside the box of what is normal for me. Well, then again, I’m never quite sure what is normal for me anyway. We’ll need to discuss Thanksgiving. I’m a bit skeptical about the “friendly” atmosphere between the settlers and the natives…

    Love this post Phil,
    Just dropping off my spell.. as I head down the list of Nikki’s Halloween event..

    It was upon a Hallowed night that once upon a time
    A visitor came out of the wood to say her words in rhyme
    She leaves her charm and means no harm to those she greets with Glee
    For she spied a Guestbook With Nikki’s special plea
    That all who walk the Spiders web whose name is written down
    Must visit each and leave their trace of spell in vision bound.
    So here I come with Picture Gift on this All Hallows Eve..
    So my charm my magic spell I now bring and leave..
    HAPPY HALLOWEEN.

    Have a great weekend Phil..
    Sue Dreamwalker
    Love the Music too…. 🙂

    It is fantastic what can be created with a pumpkin and a few sharp tools!

    • October 30, 2011 at 11:04 am

      Yes Margie, I love the creativity some folks show, and if it’s laced with a bit of humor, all the better! Thank you for stopping by.

    How about you?
    X

    • October 30, 2011 at 11:13 am

      My wife and I will be giving out candy and I’ll carve a few pumpkins for the stoop, and play some spooky sounds from the outdoor speakers. We don’t have as many kids now in our neighborhood as in the past, but it’s still fun for the little ones who do venture up our street.

  13. October 30, 2011 at 10:48 am

    PUMPKIN, I mean.

    • October 30, 2011 at 11:11 am

      I knew what you meant, but I’ll be happy to pour you another cup of espresso or cappuccino if you like! 🙂

    Hi Phil,
    Flying by with Halloween Guestbook Event greetings.
    May your Halloween be filled with spooky frights
    and sweet delights.

    spooky-fright> http://i169.photobucket.com/albums/u205/nh07/HH-003fromNikki.jpg
    sweet-delight> http://i169.photobucket.com/albums/u205/nh07/HH-4fromNikki.gif

    I noticed you could hyperlink your gift to people, I saw that in someones page a minute ago. I’ve tried to do it and cant, dont know why because it used to work on msn but not here, can you tell me how you do it? thanks Phil xo

    Happy Halloween!!
    Big hugs, Nikki

    • October 30, 2011 at 11:55 am

      Hi Nikki. Happy Halloween to you too!

      In order to make the hyperlink in the comments section, you need to use HTML code.

      Type the following but replace the left and right parentheses with the less than and greater than symbols :

      (a href=”http://i169.photobucket.com/albums/u205/nh07/HH-003fromNikki.jpg”)Spooky Fright(/a)

      and once it posts, you should see this:

      Spooky Fright

  16. October 30, 2011 at 7:25 pm

    Thanks for your help Phil, I’ll try this code next time.
    I love your halloween post, a touch of humor and lots of cool stuff, vomiting pumpkin is hilarious! I kinda like that celtic term about there being a ‘dark half’ to the year, it seems the perfect term for it! My city is all rain and fog and mist and gloom now til next spring. They film many scary movies here because of our gloomy spooky weather for half a year…the dark half.
    Big hugs, Nikki x

    • October 31, 2011 at 6:52 am

      I’m glad you enjoyed the post Nikki, and it was no problem at all to help with the code. Whereabouts do you live to have such gloomy, dreary weather? Pacific Northwest?

  17. October 30, 2011 at 7:26 pm

    And one more gift for you, I didnt try the code just yet though…

    Thanks for being a part of my first ever guestbook event!
    It’s been so much fun thanks to all of you, my wonderful friends.
    Here is a little participation award to thank you for completing the Halloween event.
    I appreciate so much all that each of you has done, it made this event very special!
    Hugs and kisses, Nikki

    • October 31, 2011 at 6:55 am

      Nikki, the thanks belong to you for setting this up. I had fun visiting all the different bloggers’ pages and stumbled upon a few that appear interesting enough I’ll be certain to return to again for more reading.

    October 30, 2011 at 8:17 pm

    You’re definitely getting into the spirit of things, Phil! And I’m jolly glad that my emetophobia is lessened or those pumpkins would’ve set it off! 😉

    • October 31, 2011 at 6:58 am

      Val, I just had to look up emetophobia, and I’m extremely grateful you didn’t have any ill side-effects. I was aiming for a chuckle or two, not an upchuck or two… 😉

  19. October 31, 2011 at 12:52 am

    Double trouble here I come: One for you, one for me. Never let it be said that a trouble shared is a double halved. Ask me and get the formula. Make mine Munch’s THE SCREAM. Till stifled. And if you can’t hold your drink then don’t turn into a pumpkin. Disgusting.

    Overspill, and happy Hallo to you too,
    Weened,
    U

      You certainly do have a way with words, Ursula! I hope you have a most memorable Halloween, one that won’t involve too much in the way of screams…

    This is so fun. The puking pumpkins were my favorite…well-earned emesis, it appears.

      Thank you Victoria. I’m glad you found it fun. And thank you for giving me another interesting word to add to my vocabulary.

      Thank you Jen. I trust you had a classic and goth Halloween in Whitby, and that it met with all your expectations of fun.

    Gee, I feel like I’m lost in the fog of Halloween.

    • November 1, 2011 at 8:39 am

      I know the feeling. But it’s always a treat to have you drop in. Soon the fogginess will lift. As soon as I can think of something to write about…

        No biggy, I know you’ll come up with something thought-provoking.

        • November 1, 2011 at 10:51 pm

          Gee Tots, now I feel pressured… 🙂

      Uh oh… I hope you are now fully recovered from the flu. At least the pumpkins had a little bit of fun before becoming ill. Not so with the flu…

      Thanks for stopping by Tracey. I had fun doing this.

    Hi Phil,
    Wow that’s a good guess you had, how did you know? do you live in the PNW too? either that or you’re just super smart;) I live in Vancouver, it’s really beautiful here even though we all like to moan about the rain and dreary weather for half a year, but on the flip side we have wonderful spring and summers with tons of sun and very mild winters, if and when it snows it never stays long, and it rarely dips below -10c at it’s coldest day, so not so bad, although I would move to some place warm and sunny all year long in a heartbeat!
    I’m so glad to know you enjoyed the halloween event, maybe there’ll be another one day:)
    Have a wonderful day, Big hug, Nikki

      I used to travel a lot on business, and spent many a night in Washington State along with Oregon. Never been to Vancouver, but it’s definitely on my “to see” list. So when exactly should I plan to see it – Spring or Summer?

      Stay dry!
