Needless to say, Halloween has always been
our favorite holiday. My wife is my Morticia to my Gomez personality. In fact, it should come as no surprise that my
wife and I were married on October 31st. 1984.
At the time, we managed a video
rental store and were so short staffed that we unable to take any time
off for our wedding.
Immediately after the wedding ceremony, we went
straight home, where my wife
changed out of her gown and I out of my suit, and then into our
zombie costumes and makeup.
years later my wife and I decided to create a web based magazine
that would be a central resource of Halloween related
articles, information and suggestions, that was as professional in
appearance as it would be informative and entertaining.
And so, in October of 1994 Halloween Online
aka the Halloween Online Magazine, slithered it's way onto the
Information Super Highway with the mission of providing high quality information to everyone
with an interest
in this wonderful holiday.
At its core, the Halloween Online is a how-to
guide for helping people get the most out of their Halloween celebration
and festivities. It offers a
broad spectrum of content, providing information for everyone no matter what their level
of interest in Halloween.
Whether you want simple idea's, suggestions and direction for
haunting your home during the Halloween season, or are what we call a "Halloween pro-consumer" that
takes Halloween very seriously,
help make your Halloween experience as frightful as possible.
Today, Halloween Online is now the Internet's
leader and single largest resource for quality Halloween information and instruction, both
in content and its readership. We are continually expanding and developing new content to insure that Halloween Online
continues to keep Halloween enthusiasts informed and entertained.
While we write the vast majority of articles
in-house, we also receive information from a variety of other sources including our
readers, original authors, and Internet Resources. Articles not written by the Halloween
Online staff are always given full credit when the original author is known.
