What's Your Take on "Haunted Houses"?
by Marcy Singer from The Stitching Hour
I've just learned that a haunted house called the Horror Emporium is going into the space next to my shop for a month. I'm not entirely thrilled. I mean, how will having screaming teens beside my shop affect my evening classes?
I mean, Claude and Priscilla Atwood seem nice. Eccentric, but nice. They even gave me and some of the other Main Street shop owners a sneak peek at the haunted house. Between you and me, I was surprised at how good it actually is. One of the Horror Emporium’s feature attractions is called the Lair of the Serpent, and it’s guaranteed to make even the bravest visitor get goosebumps.
Back to the question I asked you in the title of this post—do you love haunted houses or hate them? I’m fine with haunted houses, and I think they can be fun. I don’t think I’d ever want to visit a haunted corn maze. If something or someone is chasing me, I want to be able to find my way out! Nor would I want to be a performer in a haunted attraction. I don’t want to get punched out by a frightened adult! Or child, for that matter.
So please leave a comment below on whether or not you like haunted houses, or what you do like about them if you’re in the pro category, for a chance to win a signed paperback copy of The Stitching Hour. International readers will be entered to win a digital copy of The Stitching Hour. Good luck!
