What DO you do after Halloween is over? I'll tell you what I do... spend lots of time trying to avoid those obnoxious pre-Christmas sales! There are Christmas trees up and Christmas music playing in the stores already, I HATE that!!! At least have the courtesy to wait until the day after Thanksgiving! Anyway, as I was saying... Back in 2011, I found out about "The 13 Days of Creepmas", and had a total blast with it on my old LiveJournal blog. I missed it entirely last year, but I don't want to do THAT again, so I'm getting ready early this year. :-)
Here are the rules from the latest 2013 13 Days of Creepmas blog post:
"Following the methodology of the Countdown to Halloween, The 13 Days of Creepmas is open to any blog that posts spooky content from December 1 - 13. While the primary focus is on permuted and subverted holiday imagery and traditions (i.e., giving Christmas the Jack Skellington treatment), Creepers (blogs who sign up) are welcome to post *any* spooky material to qualify as participants. The main thing is to bring that Halloween Spirit into the first 2 weeks of December, just as every store in America has brought Christmas into October.
If you'd like to add your blog to the festivities, either leave a comment or tweet the Cult of the Great Pumpkin (they're helping us out with this) with your blog link. Easy peasy!
The usual disclaimers apply: No porn, no hate, no idiocy. This is about how YOU are getting creepily creative for the Hallowdays, not how you can ruin it for somebody else. Any blogs found to be engaging or promoting sabotage, vandalism, etc. will be removed."
I won't be participating "officially", but I will be posting "creepy" Christmas stuff here for our mutual edification from December 1st through the 13th. It'll be fun to see what strange things I can find to post for 2013!
