It’s All About the Candy: Solving All Your Halloween Problems


I’ve been very clear about Halloween, Bits and Bramblers. Mostly it’s all about the candy. I mean, sure things like Jack-o-Lanterns, costumes, and haunted houses, are fun, but…come on. It’s really all about the candy, isn’t it? Candy is usually the least stressful part of the entire holiday. It’s all the other stuff that trips you up, right? The other stuff causes drama. Leads to questions. Like, What’s the best haunted house?” and “Are there any cheap but cool costume ideas?” or “Is there a way to carve a Jack-o-Lantern without getting coating in pumpkin guts?”

Luckily, your faaaaaaaaaavorite librarians are here to solve your Halloween-related problems, so you can focus on the important stuff, like candy. First up…costumes. Need a cool costume, but don’t have a ton of money to spend? No problem…check out this website, which has a ton of costume ideas—everything from the Orbit Gum Girl or an Outlaw Poster. That’s one Halloween issue you can check off your list.

Next up, the Jack-o-Lantern thing. Like the way carving pumpkins looks, but hate the process? Let’s be honest…getting covered with sticky sloppy pumpkin goo makes it very hard to hold a knife, and can lead to Halloween-related blood loss. So why not carve a virtual pumpkin online? All the fun, with no messy cleanup (but it’s trickier than you’d think. It’s just as hard to make straight lines with your mouse as it is to cut straight lines in a real pumpkin. Still…you’re done. Easy, right?

Okay, so now that I’ve solved all your Halloween issues, it’s time for some candy! Oh, wait…the haunted house thing. Well, that’s an easy fix. Just visit your faaaaaaaaaaavorite library! Oh, there are ghosts. Don’t believe me? Well, grab some candy and check out the Great M/RCPL Ghost Hunt! In two parts!
In part one, you’ll see some old library arches, and a g-g-ghost!

And part two, where the g-g-ghost enjoys office supplies!
