Spirit! Get it? Get it?
Well if you won't do it for yourselves, at least do it for us poor Southern Hemispherians. Much to my chagrin, Australia doesn't really take Halloween very seriously. Sure the supermarkets have started selling carving pumpkins in the past few years but they're stupidly expensive, and trick-or-treaters tend to be the exception rather than the norm.
We are severely Halloween deprived down here, we have to live vicariously through you lot.
But I shall not allow the lack of Halloween spirit in my homeland to bring me down. I WILL carve my ridiculously expensive pumpkin. I WILL have chocolate on hand just incase some intrepid tot finds their way to my front door in a home made Spiderman costume. I WILL wait until it's dark out on Thursday night and then watch Ghost Ship, the absolute best B-grade horror film ever made.
Seriously, if you've never seen it you have to. It's worth it for the opening scene alone. (careful though, it's pretty graphic)
No? Bit too gruesome? Oh well, there's always Hocus Pocus, I suppose. A talking animatronic cat and Bette Midler as a three hundred year old witch? Sign me up!
But whatever your spooky viewing pleasure, I hope you all have a Happy Halloween, my dears!
