Poll Time!

Happy early birthday to lucybun, baka_kit, gabrielle_h, onegoat, mbranesf, and roo2. May you all have wonderful days and terrific years to come.

At the rate at which the weeks are flying past, October will be here before we know it. Since I'm the anal, pre-planning sort, and I have an action-packed fall season before me, I thought I'd look ahead and post this poll.

FYI, for those of you who don't know, for the last six years I've had a tradition of turning this blog into a month-long celebration of Halloween, posting a "spooky post" every day in October. You can see my past October posts here.

(Note: If you're not on LiveJournal and can't vote via the ticky-boxes, you're welcome to leave a comment!)

Poll #1859646 Ye Olde Octoberish Poll

Should I revive my "daily spooky post" tradition this October?

I don't expect the election to be quite that dramatic. . . .

It would not be a real Halloween without your party each year
I live for your fun and spooky stories each Halloween season. Please give us a treat...
Has it really been six years?

I just want to say that even though I've never been a huge Halloween fan, I look forward tremendously every year to your October postings. It really is something which brightens my day every day. :) And I like Halloween better giving out candy on my front porch than I did even as a trick or treater! :D

Please, please make Halloween month as awesome as you always do. I know it must be a lot of work, and if it's too much I understand, but if you post I definitely will read. :)

Love,
Febobe :)

YAY!!! Your Halloween celebration is the treat I look forward to each year! It just makes my fall! And I anticipate each day's spookiness and, when I read your posting each morning, the thrills and chills make my day! Thanks for all the work in advance and for your perfectly awesome Halloween blogs! Hugs:)
