  1. Gory Christmas trees?

    Off-Topic Stuff
    One day I will apply to be a volunteer to decorate the White House at Christmas...one day...& if I did have free reign (though I'm sure that would NEVER happen) I'd probably toss up trees just like these (or worse)!

    General Halloween
    Good Evening All! I'm new here and I'm contemplating starting a Halloween haunt next year. I notice many existing (and very successful) haunts use or advertise "volunteers". How can any business rely on volunteers? What's the incentive for the volunteer? Of course I need to do everything...

  7. Best Halloween Prank EVER!

    General Halloween
    Back in 1979 I volunteered to work for the March of Dimes Haunted House in Dallas. They wanted me to be The Mummy, so they wrapped me up in dirty linen and put a full Mummy Head Mask on my head. The Room Scene was painted to look like it was out in the Sahara and it had a wooden sarcophagus...
