    I think Halloween of 2012 was the creepiest one in my lifetime. Other ones were spent handing out candy, working at haunted houses, dressing up in spooky costumes, and having a blast. Halloween 2012 was extra surreal, because it was so quiet.

    It was so quiet, because just days earlier, Hurricane Sandy had made direct impact with our area. Howling winds, flooding waters, pounding rain, it was all a mixture that was so unusual, they nicknamed it, “Frankenstorm”. All the Halloween decorations were taken in beforehand, and by October 31st, what took the place of kids collecting candy was silence. It was dark, the power was out, trees all over town were broken, and the whole area was a black, creepy ghost-town. Seeing creepy ghouls and goblins walking around can be the perfect Halloween scare, but sometimes, NOT seeing those can be even scarier!

    My scariest Halloween night.

    My scariest Halloween night was probably scarier for others than it was for me. You see, a friend of mine got a brilliant idea to prank people on Halloween by appearing to turn into zombies. The year was 1998, we were high school students and didn’t realize how incredibly scary that could be for people. I lived near a college campus, so we went to campus and came upon unsuspecting college students. With a can of whipped cream in hand, I would pretend to vomit the whipped cream onto the ground with my friend consoling me. I would then proceed to attack my friend (like a zombie), as my friend shrieked in fear, all the while the college students were wondering what was happening, some of them running away unsure what to make of the situation. We’d repeat this over and over again, as the zombie apocalypse began to spread. I’m not sure I’d do it again looking back now (this was 20 years ago), but at the time it seemed like an awefully good idea and this was before YouTube, so it even seemed original at the time. I have never forgotten that night.
