Something Is Afoot! #countdowntohalloween2023

Boils and ghouls,

Have you noticed things are afoot here?  (See what I did there?) The theme this year is a take on "Graveyard Smash." We will be excited about what you come up with for the theme or of course, your own things too.

*The new 2023 t-shirt is ready for purchase. Again, it has been created by Chad Savage and all proceeds will be going to charity. You can find the link at the top right of this page to order.

*Chad once again created our fabulous badges based on the theme. You know how much we love those things on our blogs. Make sure to link them back to the Countdown blog.

*Hmm what else, what else? Oh, have you been checking out our Instagram all year long? Dex has done an amazing job of posting content to it. If you want something featured to it, contact him. You never know what kind of monster will show up there. Links on the sidebar to the right.

We are just a few days away from the Countdown's beginning. Are you ready? If you haven't signed up make sure you do. I will be adding links this coming week to the sidebar. Also, please ask your friends to join. They can join via Instagram, Blogger, TikTok, or YouTube.

See you soon!

Crypt Keeper, Michelle

Our theme this year is old school Graveyard Smash!

Mr. Chad Savage, who designed our first Countdown shirt last year, has volunteered again to help us out and we'll be posting more about that in the coming weeks.
In the meantime, here's a couple of things to get you (more) into the spirit.

It Isn't Over! #Creepmas #CountdowntoHalloween2022

IT CAN'T BE!: Well, here we are on day one again. Yes, we have to wait another 365 days until our houses are full of candy again. But you and I both know, this is not the end for us. Some of you have Halloween all year long and some wait patiently. Either way, we  are here for you. BOO!

CREEPMAS: So, since it is November 1st (crypt keepers cry), some of you will be looking forward to Creepmas. Last year, Chad and Dex decided to forgo the official delight but many of you did it on your own. I have not heard from either of these two creepers about it so maybe they can chime in. This crypt will be kept open for a bit to allow for this event if it happens.

OFFICIAL SHIRTS:I hope you all ordered the shirts that were available. They have even been on sale. I don't know if you saw Dex decked out in his on the Instagram page but it was pure awesomeness. I ordered one but believe it or not, it never got to me on time nor have I received it yet. Disappointing but still a good cause and of course no matter when I receive it, you will see me in it. Did you get one? Share a photo in comments!

AN APOLOGY: So, as I mentioned to you earlier. All heck broke loose this month for me. Even yesterday was just ugh! Because of this, I did not get around to all of you by yesterday. I wanted to at least throw some toilet paper at your house but noooo... I do apologize for that not happening. Instead of treats, I got tricks this year!! Side note: I even got a  ticket last night. Oy! I will get to all of you, it is just going to be way late!

THANKS: A BIG SHOUT OUT TO DEX who has kept things going when everything went arry for me. You are the best crypt keeper. I appreciate you running Instagram too. There is always something fun over there all year long. Thanks also creepers for your awesome content year after year. As long as you keep doing it, I will keep hosting.
