Happy Halloween! How about a few jokes, some eery tricks and a bit of Halloween history from ModernMom’s favorite Manny –
A few Halloween jokes your kids will love:
Q. Why can’t the boy ghost have babies? A. Because he has a Hallo-weenie.
Q. What do you call a witch who lives at the beach? A. A sand-witch.
Q. Where does a ghost go on Saturday night? A. Anywhere where he can boo-gie.
Q What did the skeleton say to the vampire? A. You suck.
Some eery Halloween tricks I learned along the way:
* If you are looking for that old haunted mansion vibe, keep those dying flowers in the vase and use this as your table centerpiece. Add some long sticks and twigs from your yard to give it that added creepiness.
* To serve your world famous goblin eye balls and fingers use different colored plates and sizes. Miss match everything. The weirder the combinations the better reaction from the kids!
* If you are bobbing for apples throw some random fruit in there as well. An orange is a bit harder to bite into than an apple.
Did you know?
The original Jack-0-lanterns were actually a carved out turnip to help ward off evil spirits.
