Spooktacular Giveaway Hop! Over 500 Participating Blogs-it's Spooky!

"Where there is no imagination there is no horror." 
~Arthur Conan Doyle, Sr.


Halloween has always been at the top of my favorite holiday list. I can't pinpoint why exactly as there are so many reasons. One thing I do know, is that this is the holiday I look forward to all year, so I absolutely wanted to participate in this hop.

As a child, I enjoyed the traditional Halloween activities of pumpkin carving, trick-or-treating, decorating cookies, etc, but it wasn't until I began reading more and more about the history of the holiday, that I began to appreciate it for more than just picking out a great costume and sorting my candy stash at the end of the night. This year, I'll be trying out a new Halloween book by Lisa Morton: Trick or Treat: A History of Halloween.


This is a one-prize, easy-entry giveaway with multiple options to enter, to give just about everyone a chance to win. Even if you're only leaving a blog post comment, be sure to enter your info through the Rafflecopter widget--that's how the winner will be chosen!


Join the hop! Because this list is so massive, we've had to hide it in order to save blog space. Simply click on 'Read More' below to view the full hop list!

  8. We don't celebrate Halloween where I live, so it's certainly my frustration that we don't have that one day a year where dressing up in costumes is excused.
