TV Squad presents its list of spooky television treats for Halloween 2007
That time of year is upon us once again! The days are getting shorter, the nights are getting colder, and your local Wal-Mart/Target/Dave's Discount Depot is filled to the gills with delightfully sweet treats for children and adults alike. Of course, I'm talking about Christmas. Yes, that wonderful holly, jolly holiday that brings smiles and good cheer to everyone. That special time of year where . . .
I'm sorry, but did you say that there's a holiday before Christmas? That can't be! I mean I'm seeing nothing but Christmas trees and decorations in the stores these days along with costumes, fake blood, and trick-or-treat bags. What? Those are actually things that are sold during Halloween? Holy Bejeezus, how did this happen?
Rampant consumerism fueled by greedy corporations? Brrr, how creepy!
I guess it's time to put together a comprehensive list of Halloween-themed programming that will be airing from 6:00 am on October 31st into the wee hours of the 1st of November. So, before you go out and chop down that Christmas tree sit down in front of the DuMont to watch some of your favorite (and not so favorite) spooky movies and shows. Only then will you be able to begin decorating the outside of your house for Christ--
Huh? You mean there's another holiday before Christmas? Thanksgiving? What is this world coming to!
