This Year's Participants


If you want to know which houses are giving out the good candy this year, then look no further than the list below. Remember when you stop by to say thank you by leaving them a comment for all the hard work they've put into making Halloween the greatest holiday of the year.

All sites are listed alphabetically. Keep checking back as updates will be made all month long. It's never too late to join in. Just email me to let us know you  would like to be included and send us a link to your blog(s) that you'd like to have included as well as the name(s) you'd like your blog(s) listed as.

IMPORTANT NOTE TO PARTICIPANTS: It's nice to see a lot of new faces this year as long as many returning participants. If you don't see yourself on this list, or would like a blog added, removed, or renamed on this list, or if a link is broken, or incorrect, please leave a note in the comments section below. Every effort was made to contact everyone who participated last year, but a number of last year's participants did not have any contact information attached to their blogs. If you are one of those people then please email me so that I'll have your contact information for last year. 

If I've counted correctly, we have 219 people participating as of this year's launch and anticipate more will be joining us as we go. While we've lost a few participants from Countdown's past, you'll notice quite a number of new participants joining us for the first time this year, and I hope they'll find the experience enjoyable enough to come back next year. 

Now that that's out of the way it's time to put on your masks and start trick or treating. Happy Halloween!

And let's shamelessly plug my own blog now: please visit it guys and gals, I already blogged a lot about Halloween.

Guillaume said...

And where did you get that picture? I think I had a similar Jack O'Lantern basket as a child.
