Okay, so... with ghost hunters in my castle it's definitely timely to think of what we'll do for Hallowe'en this year... but I'm torn. I live in a castle... a big, old castle where a couple of murders have occurred, one memorable recent one while I was having a freaking Hallowe'en themed party!
Do I really need to emphasize that by decorating and hosting a seasonal event? But I can't just ignore the season... Wynter Castle is a popular spot for the locals to cruise by Halloween night anyway. They are going to come by anyway, even if I do nothing.
So... consider that I own a property that is already considered haunted, where a murder occurred during a Hallowe'en party just a year ago. And right this minute I have a big group of television ghost hunters (who are driving me absolutely nuts, making ME want to kill someone this time!) doing their thing, wandering around the castle in the dark with beeping meters that light up when a 'ghost' is near... when they're not arguing or fighting, that is. We'll be lucky if we get out of all of this sane!
And the whole town of Autumn Vale is in an uproar over the ghosthunters. Some of the locals are telling them tales of hauntings at Wynter Castle! Just what I needed, right? So once they're gone, and Halloween is here, I need to figure out how to handle it this year, get in front of it so I don't have cars full of teenagers egging the place or something.
What would YOU do Halloween Night if you were me and owned Wynter Castle?
A) Turn all the lights out and pretend we're not home Hallowe'en Night?
B) Turn all the lights ON and give tours, proving there are no haunts in the house?
C) Say to heck with all that, let's sing Ghouls Just Want To Have Fun and PARTAY?
Tell me... what would YOU do?
