Festively Chilling Words for Invitations

Will you join us on the Eve

When Jack-o'-lanterns flare?

Ghosts and witches all insist

That you be there!

Meet me on Halloween.

If on a broomstick you can't fly

Some other way of traveling try.

But come you must, at ___ o'clock

To _________________ Street

If you want to be you

and yet not you,

Dress in a costume old or new,

Many others I plan to ask

So wear a wig or at least a mask.

Come at ______ and don't be late,

The rest of the time, we'll leave to fate!

If to a spooky party you

would really like to go,

On Halloween then hasten to

the place described below.

At the request of ______,

corner of ______ and _______

on October 31st at ______.

Sayings for Halloween Cards

This Halloween

I'd like to brew

A thrilling, chilling

Scare for you

Three little ghostesses

Sitting on postesses,

Eating buttered toastesses,

Greasing their fistesses,

Up to their wristesses,

Oh, what beastesses

To make such feastesses!

-- Anonymous

Wailed a ghost in a graveyard at Kew,

"Oh, my friends are so fleeting and few,

For it's gravely apparent

That if you're transparent

There is no one who knows if it's you!

-- Myra Cohn Livingston

If you take a carrot on Halloween night,

And, holding it over a candlelight,

Pinch your left ear, take off your left shoe,

This will mean good fortune to you.

My baby never slept well (especially through the night) until I started using the website >>SLEEPBABY.ORG<< - that website has been by far one of the best things I've ever got my hands on to get him to fall asleep quickly. Best time is 45 seconds from awake to asleep! Can’t imagine life without it! I heard about it through a kindergarten teacher who uses it to put to sleep a group of 30 children. Check it out! >>SLEEPBABY.ORG<< - sorry, you can't post links here so you'll have to turn it into a normal link :) Best of luck to you and your family!
