My Halloween Must List

I've been working on a story for my column in the Valley Planet.  I'm trying to develop a list of Halloween activities for people in North Alabama in the month of October.  I have had a wonderful time coming up with this list.   However,  as I made my list I realized I won't be able to everything I want to do in October.  So Valley Planet aside.  I'm making a list of things I just want to do during my favorite time of year.    It is a long list, but what the hell, Halloween only comes once a year and then its on to frantically buying presents and stringing the world with bright lights for Christmas.   I can use help with this list,  so if you all want to add to the list, please send me the must do's on your October fun list.

1.   Go to the Nashville Zombie walk.    I have always wanted to do one of these and there is no time like the present.  I'm dressing up like a zombie and looking for brains this year!

2.  Diabetes Association Halloween Fun Run.  What's more fun than dressing up like a zombie and walking?  Dressing up like a zombie and running a 5K for charity.    I hope my make-up doesn't do all the running in this event. 

3.  Go to the Ghost Walk in Chicago that I missed last time I was there.  I'm booking this one tonight instead of waiting to the last minute.

4.  See The Last Exorcism:   I don't know why I missed this in the theaters but I want to see it now.

5.  Go on Huntsville's Cemetery Walk  I wanted to this last year but was too busy

6.  Go on Huntsville's Ghost Walk-   I've been putting this one off for months

7  Finish Reading Johannes Cabal the Necromancer.  I've been trying to get through this book for over a week and I will finish it because I love its dark humor.  

8.  Read Clive Barker's Imajica:  Why haven't I done this yet?  Who knows?

9.  Go to Murder and Ghosts on the mountain:   This is a ghostly murder mystery night in which we get to participate in figuring who murdered the ghost.  I really want to try this.

10.  See Suspiria:  One of the best horror movies of all time and I have never seen it.  What is wrong with me?

11.  Go to at least 3 of the 10 haunted houses I've found in the area:

So that is my list so far, but I'm open to suggestions.  I love Halloween and I'm going to enjoy this one as much as possible!

Zombies sound fun! We have a cemetary walk I plan on going to missed last year. Love the history too! I haven't seen Suspiria something must be wrong with me too!

I would like to go on a zombie walk too. I believe that Tempe usually puts one on. I will have to ask our buddy Autumnforest. I am going to try and hit as many Halloween events here and do some posts on them. You have a great list and hope you will be able to do all or at least most of them.

Zombie walk is on my list too. The murder mystery thing--I did that and I really enjoy it a lot! I'd add--pull a Halloween prank on someone. I usually do makeup to create a fake injury and creep someone out or hide a severed body part somewhere they'll find it. Hee hee

magikalseasons... nothing is wrong with you I just try to keep up and I can't keep up as well as I'd like.

Thanks Above the Norm. I hope you make a zombie walk and post pictures. I love to see how people look as zombies.

Autumnforest... I'll take your prank advice. I like that.

That all sounds like fun!!! It makes me tired just thinking about all that stuff....but lots of fun. I never pass up a ghost walk, one of my favorite things to do!! Let us know how it goes.

oh....and I am a huge Clive Barker fan....read that book. It is one of my faves!

Cheers!

I always mean to go on one of those Ghost Walks, but never seem to manage it.

Imajica was fun. Barker fans should enjoy it.
