The Days of the Dead

day-of-the-dead

The Day of the Dead falls on November 1 and 2 of each year, coinciding with the Catholic holidays All Saints’ Day and All Souls’ Day.

Although November 2nd is the official date for Day of the Dead, it is celebrated between October 31st and November 2nd. Usually the preparations (and some festivities) start even earlier than that. So really, the “Day” of the Dead can also be called the “Days” of the Dead, because the holiday spans more than one day.

Traditionally, November 1 is the day for honoring dead children and infants, and November 2 is the day for honoring deceased adults.

I Love Halloween

i-love-halloween

Reasons I love Halloween:

  1. Costumes – I love seeing the types of costumes people come up with.
  2. Candy – It reminds me of my youth when my friends and I would plod along small country roads waiting for the next stop of candy.
  3. Jack-O’-Lanterns – I really enjoy seeing how creative some people get with their carving.
  4. Black Cats – Well I just love all cats.
  5. Hocus Pocus – The movie, although not scary, is an all time favourite.
  6. Scary Movies – Don’t know why, I just like them.

Obsessed With Zombies

the-walking-dead

With season 7 of The Walking Dead starting tomorrow got me thinking about why we are so fascinated with zombies.

Zombie movies.

Zombie TV.

Zombie games.

Zombie books.

We can’t get enough of them.

But why?

What is it with zombies?

Why is “The Walking Dead” such a smash hit? Why are kids obsessed with “Plants versus Zombies”? Why???

Monster Mash

♫ The zombies were having fun
The party had just begun
The guests included Wolfman,
Dracula, and his son ♫

♫ The scene was rockin’, all were digging the sounds
Igor on chains, backed by his baying hounds
The coffin-bangers were about to arrive
With their vocal group, ‘The Crypt-Kicker Five’ ♫

♫They played the mash, they played the monster mash
The monster mash, it was a graveyard smash
They played the mash, it caught on in a flash
They played the mash, they played the monster mash ♫

 

Michael Myers

 

 

m-myers

“I met him, fifteen years ago; I was told there was nothing left; no reason, no conscience, no understanding; and even the most rudimentary sense of life or death, of good or evil, right or wrong. I met this six-year-old child, with this blank, pale, emotionless face, and the blackest eyes… the devil’s eyes. I spent eight years trying to reach him, and then another seven trying to keep him locked up because I realized that what was living behind that boy’s eyes was purely and simply… evil.”

-Dr. Sam Loomis talking about Michael Myers
