Happy Halloween!

Whether you’re partying it up, handing out candy, or shutting yourself indoors with some scary movies, I hope that you’re having a wonderful Halloween!  For any readers on the east coast, I hope that Sandy hasn’t caused too much damage in your area and that you’re able to enjoy this day in whatever way makes you happiest!

Now, I don’t know about you, but I am a HUGE fan of Dictionary.com and check out the site (and app) regularly.  They’re a wonderful resource to not only check yourself before you (eek!) improperly use a word in a sentence, but also to learn about the history of words, sayings, and beliefs.  Dictionary.com isn’t just a resource for definitions and synonyms, but also for some very intriguing cultural facts.

With that said, there have been a multitude of Halloween-related specials this week.  Today’s article, What is the precise difference between ghouls, goblins, and ghosts? is definitely worth checking out.  You might THINK that you know the differences, but, well, you might find yourself rather surprised…

And what did I learn today?  Well, I never knew that ghouls found children and corpses so irresistibly delectable.  Yikes!

Happy Halloween!

  1. Amazing blog! Do you have any hints for aspiring writers?
    I’m hoping to start my own site soon but I’m a little
    lost on everything. Would you advise starting with a free platform
    like WordPress or go for a paid option? There
    are so many choices out there that I’m totally confused .. Any suggestions? Thanks!
