Halloween Friday Five

1. What was your first Halloween costume?
Native American Brave. Had the headband with feather. Face paint. The shirt with the fringes on the sleeves. Plastic bow and arrow.

2. What was your best costume and why?
Never had many Halloween costumes. I like the unicorn, although that's been worn more to cons than for Halloween. It's cute.

3. Did you ever play a trick on someone who didn't give you a treat?

4. Do you have any Halloween traditions? (ie: Family pumpkin carving, special dinner before trick or treating, etc.)

5. Share your favorite scary story...real or legend!
There's this story where a bunch of young filmmakers were making a documentary about a local legend. Then they got lost in the woods and got really scared and cried with nostrils illuminated by a flashlight. And then they came across an abandoned house in the woods and while exploring the basement, a dark fuzzy arm swung down and ended the documentary. Wasn't that a movie or something? ;)

Anyway, the local legend in this state is the Jersey Devil, a supernatural bat-winged horse-headed being that terrorized South Jersey in the 19th century. Funny thing about it today is while theres a big sign just outside Leeds Point about that place being the home of the Jersey Devil, no one in that town will talk about it. Closer to home, there's Clinton Road, which is reputed to have ghosts, cult activity and strange beasts. I've driven all the way along that road though and it doesn't look terribly unusual. Just another road going through a wilderness area.
