With the day almost upon us, here are some more Halloween themed distractions and tidbits to keep you amused while waiting for trick-or-treaters to show up at your door:
Online Interactive Pumpkin Carving
If you’re trying to come up with the perfect design for your pumpkin, this site can give you the opportunity to test out all kinds of designs without having to get slimy with pumpkin guts. Then when you’re finished, you can adjust the background and send it to a friend as an animated e-card.
The History of Halloween
Did you ever stop to wonder where this holiday came from? Or why a holiday supposedly devoted to the spooky and supernatural happens to condone begging for sweets? The History Channel takes a look at the origins of the holiday, and it goes back probably further than you think.
The Unmuseum has an interesting article explaining the science behind our perceptions of ghosts and hauntings. However, if phrases like “make the eyeballs vibrate” disturb you, this article probably won’t make you feel any better.
Still need a way to pass a little bit of extra time? Here are some Halloween themed games you can play online between trick-or-treaters.
