Episode 69: Being Creeped

Updated: Oct 25, 2021

It’s that time of year again, the best time, Halloween time! I think part of Halloween’s appeal is how it can be a mix of Disneyland with Las Vegas but with lots of candy. We decorate our homes with things that, any other time of the year might be deemed “macabre”. Excuses need not be made to act wild, silly or child-like. Costumes of clothing we would never dream of wearing around our friends and family become totally accepted. Rules become obsolete and the line of expected behaviors begins to blur. Today I’ll be telling two stories of lives lost on Halloween. A pair from Alaska and a teen in British Columbia. All three victims having held out hopes for an enjoyable Halloween night while falling victims to the horrors the holiday can bring.
