CP64 - Halloweenie Tech Bag




Halloween has been, for years, attempting to edge Christmas out as "My Favorite Holiday"..
Admittedly, I have always had immense pleasure in BOTH...  but for very different reasons...
Anyone who has followed FDbyK4TT long enough - knows I LOVE me some Horror Movies...   


"Tender lumplings everywhere
Life's no fun without a good scare
That's our job, but we're not mean
In our town of Halloween"

But you can watch horror movies and eat candy 364 other days a year... Now Christmas ... somehow growing up in the mid to northeast...
Christmas has always been a "cold weather" only thing.

In the past few years, however, Halloween has edged out in front just a bit...  Perhaps because it comes first in the line up, and by the time New Year's rolls around, I am exhausted...
We'll just have to see what I am in the mood to create in the next few weeks, but currently... it's all about the Spooks & Thrills of Halloween!
