        My earliest nightmares were evil clowns, no lasting damage done I was a clown for the Special Olympics a couple years when I was younger. Be noisy & bright… move a lot to keep some of the more seriously mentally handicapped running in the right direction. Still creepy clowns are about the creepiest things I can think of.

    Arguably since Halloween is technically a lunar event, it’s most likely that we celebrate it about 20 days off it’s actual date.
