Hurricane Sandy has already come and gone but she left in her wake a LOT of devastation. NYC is trying to get back on its feet after the storm and many of my friends and family throughout the entire tri-state area (NY, NJ, CT) are still dealing with loss of power, flooding, etc. The amount of people who have lost their homes and are still without power is staggering. The recovery from this storm is going to take a while and many people are going to need all the help they can get.
Having lived here my whole life and experiencing a few disasters (some natural and some not), the one thing about us New Yorkers is that we’re pretty resilient. We’re never down for long. If you would like to donate to the Red Cross for Hurricane Sandy relief, here’s the link.
While Halloween is usually a BIG deal in these here parts; right now, most of us are just trying to keep our wits together. This is the first Halloween in the longest time that kids are not going to come by to trick or treat.
In the midst of everything that is happening all around, I figured a little GIF Party would help to keep things light around here until we’re relatively back to normal. So without further ado:
For those of you that don’t know, a GIF Party is where moving images come together in one post to party like rockstars.
So, once again it’s All Hallow’s Eve and you know what that means? Candy and costumes galore. For those of you outside the tri-state area who are able to celebrate, here’s our guide to making it through Halloween in one piece.
1. Decide on a costume. You can go as yourself.
or something more complicated.
2. Maybe you still like to go out trick or treating.
Or you just like to
Make sure you show off your best moves.
4. Just one more thing, stay away from people dressed up like fictional psycho killers.
Always, always look behind you.
5. Be wary of things that go bump in the night. Or friends dressed up in their Halloween gory best.
6) Hopefully, you can get through the night without ending up in the madhouse.
7) And if you do make it, congrats!
