String a bunch of your Halloween lights up!
This is my favorite blend of colors – I love seeing black and orange together. I have a black cat, and an orange cat, but I really want a black-and-orange calico cat. With my one cat’s orange fur with white spots, it makes it easy for me to turn him into the perfect Halloween kitty – just take some black spray paint and you can turn a plain old cat into a Mayoween puss!
Schedule trick-or-treat in the newspaper for your house only.
Notice that May also has 31 days? Put an ad in the paper, not for a garage sale or an open house, but for one night only of trick-or-treating at the only house in town participating. You’re bound to get a lot of kids, and probably a few aggrieved parents. Make sure you’ve got plenty of candy to feed the masses, or you might find a riot on your hands, Walking Dead style.
Deck your car out with Halloween gear.
I’ve always wanted to do this with my own car, but I’ve never had any extra money to spend on it. But since it’s not technically Halloween, there should be enough funds lying around to look for window clings and Halloween lights that plug into the charging station in your car. Throw up some cobweb around the windows (obviously being careful to avoid creating blind spots, we wouldn’t want any Mayoween accidents), and you have yourself your very own hearse.
Build a haunted house… at work.
If you work in at an office job, chances are you’re a little bored sitting around typing at your computer. Take me for example; I’m doing all of this from the comfort of my own desk. It’s time you rearranged the office a little bit for Mayoween. Make your cubicle into your very own haunted desk, and then invite your coworkers in for some witch’s brew punch and some grape eyeballs. They might think you’re a little weird, but make sure you get dirt on them – Gregory picks his nose at lunch, and Stacy steals sodas from the break room fridge.
If all else fails, keep tuning in to The Moon is a Dead World!
I’ll be here all month long, giving you more Mayoween stuff to gnash your teeth at.
