October 26, 2015

image[47] Getting frightened is part of the thrill of Halloween – as long as it’s in good fun. Rational or not, we all suffer fears that send shivers of morbid terror through our bodies. Some of these fears are shared by many, others are more obscure, but we can all relate to the extreme emotions related to fear.
