    I am enjoying the spider pumpkin from your featured image. Would you kindly send me the stencil design? I think my nephew would like to carve that.

    You should have said PRECOCIOUS not precious. Those are not what my nephew needs.

    His aunt and I have tried to help raise him (despite the exhaustive efforts of the bum that married my sister) to be a good, judeo-christian man. I mentioned Judaism because they wrote the OLD TESTAMENT after all which I think reader’s digest would do well to remember…

    Speaking of remembering, when I was a BOY, my father once took me “trick-or-treating” when we were lured into the house of a devil worshiper. I don’t remember the circumstances exactly, but my father said something like “son, I will only be a minute, I think this woman needs my help.”

    Good golly was he right.

    I can remember my FATHER walking up the stairs to her private quarters in order to help this lonely woman cast demons out of her house. I was dressed as THE LONE RANGER and I remember eating a three musketeers bar as I first heard the sounds of the demons.

    It sounded like a ghost: “OHHHHHHHHHHH OHHH OOOOOOOOOOOOH!”

    I remember the clankaty-klank of bed springs as SATAN was being expelled from the house. After a few minutes, my father poked his head around the bannister of the stairs to say “son, this is taking longer than expected.”

    I can still remember the holy GATORADE in his hands…

    Patiently I sat as the minutes slipped by. I can remember thinking that I was missing out on the TREATS of Halloween. However, when I–as a young boy–heard that wonderful scream to the heavens that I will never forget in an angelic voice: “OH GOD OH GOD OH GOD” I knew that something wonderous was about to change my life forever.

    It wasn’t two minutes later when I hear the exhausted voice of my father call to me, “son…”

    Tepidly, I climbed the stairs and cautiously opened the bedroom door. The woman–our neighbor– and erstwhile demoness was now slain and lay panting on the bed.

    My father took my by the hands and said “our work here is done, don’t tell your mother.”

    And that is the TRUE meaning of ALL HALLOWS EVE. praise jesus
