Although we’ve been rather overtaken lately with horror dispatches from San Diego Comic-Con, today is a milestone that deserves a little recognition for all our Halloween aficionados out there. Yes, as of today, Halloween is just a short 100 days away. That’s hardly enough time to get all our hauntings in place before the big day!
In honor of starting our Hallloween countdown in earnest, I’d like to announce a new contest for our regular readers here at TYoH. We currently have 800 email subscribers to the site. When we reach 1,000 subscribers, I will chose a random subscriber to win a 100 Days to Halloween Survival Pack. This prize pack includes a bound anthology of Halloween poetry, a Halloween cocktail cookbook, your choice of spooky set of wine charms or earrings, and a few other ghoulish goodies hand-selected by your TYoH staff. So if you are a regular reader, don’t miss out – click the email sign up on the top left of the main page. If you’ve already subscribed, send the link to friends and family who enjoy a good scare – the sooner we get to 1,000, the sooner you have a chance to win! Just our way of saying thanks to you, dearest readers, for keeping Halloween alive all year round.
In the meantime, let our TYoH archive help get you in a marvelously morbid mood, whether you’d like to get in the spirit with a little spooky music and poetry, turn off the lights and watch a few scary movies from our horror short film vault or Halloween Guide to Netflix, or brush up on your creepy history, anomalous oddities, or other ghostly happenings that provide Halloween inspiration 365 days a year. If 100 days signals the start of your official Halloween planning, you can get started with our collection of DIY guides, from Halloween food and cocktails to home haunting how-tos, plus over 50 costume and makeup tutorials.
Thank you, my darling readers, for helping make this site such a treasure all year. If you’re hungry for more, come be friends with us on Tumblr, Twitter, Facebook, or Google+, and let’s celebrate the next 100 days together! Best of luck with the contest, and happy haunting!
