Sisters, look! Satan has married Medusa! See the little snakes in her hair

I love to wear costumes. It usually takes me several days to think of a clever costume because the ones in the store are either way to slutty or stupid. Generally, I end up making something ridiculous out of a cardboard box or a unicorn and sporting it around for several nights until it gets destroyed or the Unicorns neck is severed. At that time I retire the costume. This year I decided to go with a “box turtle”. I thought it was an appropriate memorial to Ketis who disappeared one year ago today. However, you will only see it if you are in St. Simons for the Georgia Florida game. GO DAWGS!

-Why are Orange and Black Halloween colors? Orange is associated with the Fall harvest and black is the color for death. Those were the first colors I got for rubber bands on my braces in the 3rd grade.
-Jack o’ lanterns started in Ireland. Originally they put candles in turnips to scare away spirits.
-Pumpkins also come in blue, green, and white. I saw one the other day and it looked sickly.
-Tootsie Rolls were the first wrapped penny candy in the US. Now you only get them for less than a penny at OK Cafe.
-Candy sales for Halloween average about 2 billion annually. Right behind it is Christmas. Go figure, I saw red and green M&Ms in the store yesterday.
-Snickers is the #1 candy bar for trick-or-treaters. You work up an appetite running from house to house.
-Think you know a werewolf? Look for a unibrow, hairy palms, tattoos, and a long middle finger.
-There are still vampire clubs with people claiming to be real vampires.
-THe largest pumpkin ever weighing in was 1,446 pounds.
-Samhainophobia is an intense fear of Halloween
