Celebrate Halloween with The Switch Witch

The Switch Witch
The Switch Witch is an interesting concept. If you feel that your children have too much candy after Halloween trick or treating, why not employ a Switch Witch?

For the uninitiated, the Switch Witch is a good witch who visits homes with children on Halloween and trades candy for gifts…a bit like the tooth fairy.

At bedtime, your children leave a predetermined amount of their candy with the Switch Witch and in the morning ** poof ** that candy has turned into a special gift.

Mother Barbara on SheKnows.com says, "This is an especially good solution for kids with allergies, medical or dietary requirements that may be restricted from having candy, chocolate, nuts, food dyes, etc." However, Parents.com elaborates that "it isn't about taking the fun out of Halloween but rather that it's about helping kids to understand that fun doesn't have to mean food." Indeed, a lesson for all of us.

Included in each set is a Switch Witch doll, cauldron and book.

Celebrate Halloween with The Switch Witch

The Switch Witch Book

The Switch Witch Book

Here’s how it works:


Watch for the Switch Witch on the October 23, 2015, episode of ABC's Shark Tank.

My children are grown but I love the idea of a book to share with your wee ones and of the log to record each year's costume and Switch gifts. I would be sure to add a photo of your child in costume, too. What a great Halloween memory book you would be creating. Using a Switch Witch is sure to become a family tradition just like the Elf on the Shelf is for many families. My children would have loved the idea especially if the candy magically became a Lego set, a coveted book, a trip to the movies, which is, I believe, the secret to using this idea successfully. Make sure the exchange is fun and will make your children's eyes light up.

Be sure to leave us a comment below and let us know what you think about this Halloween idea.

Happy Halloween!

Burger King's Halloween Whopper

Burger King's Halloween Whopper
I’ll admit. It made me smile. Burger King’s new Halloween Whopper, that is.

Being released for Halloween 2015 and for what we assume is a limited time only, this burger includes what you would expect and a bit more.

A quarter pound hamburger patty, cheese, tomatoes, lettuce, mayonnaise and A.1. sauce, more sauce, pickles and onions. All loaded on a sesame seed bun. A black bun that is, infused with A.1. flavor.

Here's the official video from Burger King:



It looks pretty tasty, don't you think? I am not sure if I would eat one or not but I do think that the idea is fun for Halloween given our love in North America of Halloween. Of course, it is also a great marketing idea because it has us all talking about Burger King.

The small print? This burger packs in 710 calories and 43 grams of fat, which means that I will probably pass on this monstrous creation. How about it? Will you be trying one of these Halloween monsters or will you be passing? Be sure to 'lettuce' know.

Happy Haunting!

Donald Trump Halloween Pumpkin T-Shirts

Donald Trump Halloween Pumpkin T-ShirtsDonald Trump Halloween Pumpkin Pie T-ShirtCelebrate Halloween 2015 with this 2016 presidential themed shirt that features Donald trump as a jack o'lantern and reads Trumpkin. Or choose the second pattern, which features Trumpkin Pie, a piece of pumpkin pie with Donald Trump hair and whip cream. They're a simple way to show a bit of spirit this Halloween. If you are not wearing a costume, you might like to pull on this t-shirt instead. This pattern is also available from Zazzle on a host of products including buttons and stickers but I think the t-shirts are the most fun.

Five More Zombie Coffee Mugs

Share Your Love of Zombies With A Zombie Mug...


Zombie fans beware. I have uncovered a small but horror-iffic selection of Zombie coffee mugs. I've gathered them together and displayed them on this page and on other pages within this blog. Let me warn you that while I have included a few cute Zombie mugs I have also included a few not-so-cute Zombie mugs, given the true nature of this brain-eating creature.

Bet you would never have guessed that there are such, ah, interesting choices to be made when you go looking for a Zombie themed mug. Here's to the zombies...

Infected Zombie Mug


Here's a perfectly horrible zombie mug for your zombie. This one declares on the outside"Infected Zombie Mug" and you get to see the real zombie revealed when he lifts up his mug for a sip of coffee or serum.

This mug (or maybe it is the contents) will bring you back from the dead.

If you mugs go missing at work, you might not want to choose this one because every one will have their eyes on it! Order your infected zombie mug from Amazon by clicking here.




Zombie Serum Coffee Mug 


Does your zombie need his zombie serum every morning? Does it bring him back to life? If so, he'll appreciate this green on the outside and black on the inside Zombie Serum coffee mug by Lorrie Veasey and Our Name is Mud. It reads, "Zombie Serum. It Brings Me Back to Life." Kind of a handsome mug, don't you think? It is no longer available on Amazon, but you might find it on eBay by clicking here.

School of Zombies Mug


Brains...I Need Brains. Where else would a smart zombie head besides school? This School of Zombies mug declares a zombies need for brains on the interior where it reads, "Brains...I Need Brains." Another handsome choice by Lorrie Veasey and Our Name is Mud. Find it on Amazon by clicking here.


His and Her Zombie Mugs


I'm not quite sure but don't you think these Talking and Waking Zombie Mugs by Lorrie Veasey and Our Name is Mud qualify as his and hers mugs? One says, "The Talking Dead, Don't Speak To Me Until I've Had my Coffee." The other, "The Waking Dead, No Brains Before Coffee." What do you think and which one are you? Find it by clicking right here.

Zombies...Eat Flesh


This humorous Zombies mug is a take on the Subway Eat Fresh advertising campaign and reads, Zombie. Eat Flesh. It is available in both 11oz and 15 oz sizes and is both dishwasher and microwave safe. You'll find it from the creator on Zazzle by clicking right here.




Have you chosen YOUR zombie mug? - I'm 'dying' to hear which zombie coffee cup is for you...

Zombies Calendar 2016


Zombies Have Issues…they definitely do and this 2016 calendar, featuring artwork by Greg Stones, demonstrates that fact clearly. You will have 'Ah Hah' moments when you see these zombies having problems with ordinary, everyday things and situations. Stop and think about it for a minute…how would a zombie react to helium? To a bad hair day? Piranhas? Performance reviews? Waterskiing? Dogs?  Definitely sympathetic to the zombie, the pictures on this calendar are a make-you-smile look into the world of the undead that will keep you smiling all year long.

I Love Zombie Mugs


Sometimes, words are simply not required. The zombie mugs I have chosen to highlight here on Halloween Every Day this year fit that bill. What more can I say except that I think these Our Name is Mud Lorrie Veasey zombie-themed mugs are a hoot and I believe that your zombie loving friends will like them, too.

One reads, "The Talking Dead...Don't Speak to me Until I've Had My Coffee." The other, "The Waking Dead...No Brains Before Coffee." Which one represents your situation in the morning? Maybe both you say...

You can find these mugs on Amazon by clicking here.

The Watcher In The Woods was Walt Disney's 1980 attempt to move beyond its usual type of film and into the horror movie genre.

Disneyland Halloween Decorating Videos

If you are crafty and you love Halloween, you are going to LOVE the Halloween decorating tips shared by Disneyland Resort's David Caranci in these three Youtube videos. I do.

They're fairly simple, fast and inexpensive and include a ghost made from PVC and a recycled soda pop bottle; a simple and different way to decorate a pumpkin; some candy corn made out of construction cones; a Jack Skellington Halloween tree; and some shrunken apple heads.

My only complaint about these videos is that they are TOO SHORT, LOL!

What Is A Zombie?

What Is A Zombie?

We Have All Heard of Zombies, But What Exactly IS A Zombie?


We were driving down the road today - my husband, teenage sons and one of their girlfriends - when the Zombie Love Song came on. Listening to that song and talking about it, we were soon discussing the most unusual topic (at least for me) of WHAT IS A ZOMBIE? On this page, I will share with you what I have learned about ZOMBIES. Zombies, that is, as they are related to pop culture, books and the movies.

(Please note that this post was originally written and published on another website in 2011. My sons are grown now, we are empty nesters.)

What Is a Zombie?


Well it turns out that a Zombie was originally thought to be a corpse that has been returned to life by a method such as witchcraft. However, the modern day interpretation of a Zombie is slightly different than that and is largely influenced by books, movies and pop culture.

Zombies are once-human creatures that are hungry for meat, human meat that is, and are often particularly interested in eating brains. Sometimes a cause is given for their condition but other times there is no explanation. When a cause is given, it is often tied to the end of civilization or a zombie apocalypse.

Zombies are so popular now that they can be considered their own genre of horror movie.

ZombielandThe first largely successful zombie movie was Night of the Living Dead and zombie movies continue to be released in a regular fashion. One example of a fairly recent and extremely popular moviethat has a cult-like following is Zombieland.

Wikipedia calls the word zombie a word that refers to corpses that have come back to life via a mystical manner. They go on to add that zombie can also refer to someone who is not aware of their surroundings...

WikiAnswers calls zombie a creature that is undead or that has come back to life after being dead and that appears in movies, books and games.

The Inevitable Zombie Apocalypse summed it up a bit differently by saying that if it looks and acts like a zombie and it is not something else then it is a zombie...

Do you like zombies? Are you a fan at Halloween time or all year long?
