It’s finally Halloween! For those who celebrate, Happy Halloween! I hope you have some frightening, fun, and safe plans for today. I’m sad to report that October Fright is officially coming to an end *queue disappointed awws* Tomorrow my blog will go back to normal which actually makes me a little sad. I’m actually going to miss the spiders. So in celebration of this creeptastic day, I’m making a little recap of this month’s Halloween-themed posts.

Villains can be the kind of characters that you just love to hate. They can also be the kind of characters that make you want to hide under a blanket and hope to could disappear.

October Fright would not be complete without a true ghost story. In my post October Fright: Local Urban Legends, I tell two tales I grew up with, one which had me headed to an abandoned insane asylum!
