We’re getting ready for Creepmas – are you?
The 13 Days of Creepmas are upon us and the call is out to any/all blogs and websites that want to participate! Launched in 2011, Creepmas is a way for Halloween-lovin’ folk to get back at the encroachment of Christmas into Halloween by posting spooky fun holiday stuff during December. Read more about it at http://www.creepmas.com!
Just in time to kick off The 13 Days of Creepmas, Paul Cheekyboy / Monster Mashup UK have created a killer 6-song mashup EP called Merry Creepmas – get it at http://www.monstermashups.co.uk/ FREE!
It was inevitable. Every year, as Christmas has spread its holly-branched tentacles further and further into Autumn, October and Halloween, we Pumpkinauts have grown increasingly irritated at the invasion. Now, we are preparing to launch a counterstrike – CREEPMAS! The Cult of the Great Pumpkin has signed on as a major participant in The 13 Days of Creepmas, a celebration of the Hallowdays set to happen December 1 – 13, 2011. RUN, don’t walk, to http://www.creepmas.com to find out how you, too, can HORRIFY THE HALLOWDAYS!
Sick and tired of seeing Christmas decorations replacing Halloween decorations in early October and being subjected to Christmas carols on November 1st, artist and Cult of the Great Pumpkin supporter Chad Savage recently tweeted: “The incursion of Christmas into Autumn has me seriously considering leaving my Halloween yard decor up until January. Christmas scarecrows!” Shortly thereafter, he tweeted again saying his awesome wife gave the thumbs up to keeping the scarecrows out.
And with one tweet, the revolution was started.
“Every year, Christmas makes its way into stores earlier and earlier and I say it’s time we have retribution! Creepmas should be an in-between celebration mixing (or mangling) elements of Christmas with Halloween and/or horror but not necessarily gory. Sort of like Nightmare Before Christmas.”
We at the Cult of the Great Pumpkin are totally behind this idea. Stay tuned for further developments. In the meantime, read more about CREEPMAS!
