Day Twenty Eight: Trick or Treat – Trick Edition
I’m 28 days into my 31 day challenge and I just realized I haven’t covered much Hijinks during my Halloween Hijinks series. While I enjoy the treats and the dressing up and the feeling of getting scared during the Halloween season, I also like the mischief involved as well. While I’m not condoning the mean-spirited pranks that happen on Devil’s Night (especially in the Detroi area), there’s definitely no harm in a little bit of Halloween mischief (or hijinks) amongst friends. In fact, one of my favorite Halloweens ever (until I got to share the holiday with my daughter that is) had to be the year I dressed up as the T-800 (battle damage and everything). I looked all over the house and I couldn’t find it. I promise though, when I do – even if it’s not the Halloween season – it will be on this blog. Anyway, that Halloween. My friends and I decided that instead of Trick or Treating, we were going to create a haunted house in one of our front yards and scare all the younger kids. One of us climbed up a tree and jumped down every time a group of kids came, one of us acted like a scarecrow on the porch, and I hid inside a wooden box. We had so much fun popping up and scaring everyone – it was great.
It’s with that spirit of Halloween and the “trick” part of Trick or Treat do I give you the following YouTube videos.
Also, if you want to pull a few pranks of your own, you’ll find three oldies but goodies (two featuring Linda Blair from her role in The Exorcist) after the break.
