I love Halloween . . . dressing up, getting candy and especially telling stories!
If you feel the same way, you won’t want to miss the Brilliant Bookworms, a youth storytelling group from Winchester Thurston School, telling (slightly) scary stories Tuesday, October 29, 7 pm, at our annual Halloween Costume Party and Bring-Your-Own-Decorated Pumpkin Contest. Come in costume and join the trick-or-treat parade after the stories!
Here are some of my favorite stories for Halloween:
“The Strange Visitor” piece by piece, body parts come to the woman who is at the fireside; she finally asks what they’ve come for and the surprise answer is . . . YOU! Find it in any one of these sources–
“Ghost with the Bloody Fingers” never trust anyone that says a room ISN’T haunted; this scary (but funny) story will make you think otherwise–
“Heckedy Peg” always do as your mother says and never let in strangers–
“Dark Dark Tale” you never know what you’re going to find in a deep, dark corner–
“The Ghoul” a deliciously, frightful poem that will have you shaking in your shoes–
“Yellow Ribbon” no matter what the color, don’t ask anyone wearing a scarf to remove it–
