Theme think Zombies or Mummies because July is full of them
July 4th (American holiday)
July 14 Bastille Day (french holiday)
July 7 - Festival of the Handmaidens (roman) - This was the maids’ day out, when the maids of Rome were beyond the control of their mistresses.
July 10 - Day of Hel - The Anglo-Saxon and Norse Goddess of the Underworld is honored annually with prayers, the lighting of black candles, and offerings of rose petals. This deity is simultaneously half living woman, half corpse.
Day of Knut the Reaper - Knut is possibly the original Grim Reaper he enjoys commemoration with the goddess (Hel) the shade of the underworld. ( both "holidays" Norse)
For the mummy lovers out there rumor has it ( based on the ancient Egyptian Calendar) July 27 is Osiris' B-day, July 28 Horus' B-day and July 30 Is Isis B-day.
Last but not least we have July 29, the Festival of the Norse god Thor. The great thunder-God was honored on this date with prayers for protection of the crops against destructive storms.
Now for the how to:
Post in this thread if you wish to exchange Red, White and Dead greetings with other Halloween Forum members. Indicate if you have a mailing limit for the number of greeting you wish to send out and where you're willing to mail to... USA, USA & Canada, Everywhere and Anywhere.
Your card can be a letter, greeting card, postcard or note - handmade or store bought, a little of both. We love them all! - SOOOO TRUE
Then exchange addresses via private message with others who wish to exchange greetings and have fun!
In the hopes of getting our greetings out by July 4th I'll say a mailing deadline of June 30 will give us plenty of time to shake out the cobwebs, pat ourselves back into some kind of human shape, get our dead butts off the couch and STOP binge watching Shudder TV and become a little creative again.
Ready... Set.... Zombie WALK.. - ! Buwaa ha haaaa!
