Our Halloween Watch List

It’s Halloween Week!! And our daily theme posts for Year Two may be finished, but we’ve got some frightfully fun surprises in store - starting with our Halloween Watch List!

When Witchy Comes to Town

What are some of the ways you celebrate Halloween? From decorating to dressing in costumes, Halloween is a holiday rich in tradition and history, dating back thousands of years. And for the residents of one small town, Halloween means they’re about to be paid several visits by one of their most mysterious citizens: a witch who lives in a little stone cottage and brings the spirit of Halloween with her each time she comes to town.

The Haunted House

What comes to mind when you think of a haunted house? An old, run down building inhabited by a ghost or two? An evil place where bad things happen to innocent people? Or is it simply a building that’s stood the test of time with echoes of the past playing out in the present? This is the story of one such house, as told by the spirits who still walk its grounds when the veil between the worlds of the living and the dead is thinnest. For even though a house may be abandoned, it’s never really empty.

The Trick or Treaters of Shaded Oak Lane

There’s something special about trick or treating. Dressing in costume, going door to door, and embracing the spirit of Halloween - it’s nothing short of magical. And everyone knows that so long as a house has its lights on and its pumpkins are lit, they’ve still got treats to hand out. But as the night goes on and more porches go dark, what’s left for those still out searching for treats? For Sport, this was the perfect Halloween, but a mysterious group of trick or treaters are about to arrive, and nothing will ever be the same.
