Halloween Links From the Cookie Jar

Looking for something to do? Click your way over to some of these sites to scare yourself up some Halloween fun!

1. Boo-ography: at Biography.com, you can read about people who were born (or died!) on Halloween, take a monster movie quiz, chat with the oracle, read about some of your favorite spooky people (like Stephen King, Wes Craven, and Dracula). Feeling like a bit of history? You can also find out how Halloween got its beginnings.

2. Looking for Halloween haunts to visit in your area? If you live in Canada, the Halloween Project offers links to haunted attractions, as well as reviews.

3. Don't want to settle for a man-made haunt? Visit the BC Ghosts and Hauntings Research Society for actual accounts of hauntings in British Columbia. Live in the USA? Try going to Haunted Houses.com. Who knows, you could be living next door to a ghost or two!

4. For a little bit of lighter fun, check out M&M's Bright Ideas site. You'll find printable Halloween party invitations, games, free e-cards, and some great recipes (Those Vampire bites really look like something I could sink my teeth into)

5. If haunts of the theatrical kind are more your style, Reader's Digest has a list of their top 20 best Halloween movies-10 for the kids, and another 10 for you to watch when they are all in bed from a night of trick or treating. Break out the popcorn!


6. Of course, it's not Halloween without the Great Pumpkin, which celebrates it's 40th anniversary this year. Drop in a send some e-cards of Snoopy and the Peanuts gang, play a little trivia, and laugh at the cartoon of the day.
Now if they just had some tips on how to resist eating all the mini chocolate bars I bought for the trick or treaters, we'd be set.
