Halloween came from a pagan holiday called Samhain. Witches say the window to the other world of the dead is wide open on this day making it easier to cast spells and the best time to communicate with the dead. The holiday was originally more of an adult holiday but has changed over the years to be mostly about children getting scared and eating candy. I have compiled a collection of Halloween software programs that can be downloaded and enjoyed by the entire family to celebrate this day of the dead. These programs are either free or available at a nominal cost.
Halloween 3D Magic Mahjongg
The traditional mahjongg game with Halloween theme tile sets. This download also contains tile sets for other holidays so you can use it again for the upcoming Christmas season.
Halloween Coloring Pages
Children are so excited during this time of year. Anything you can find to keep them occupied and quite is a real treat for the parents. You can download and print these Halloween theme coloring pages keeping the kids at bay and happy for hours.
If you need to add more atmosphere to your Halloween party or candy handouts you can download Halloween MP3s and print out CD covers to make your own music CDs. This software download has a low price tag and carries a seven day money back guarantee. A great collection of sound tracks that may be what you need to finish out your preparations and works good for haunted houses too!
Having a Halloween party and need to send out invitations? Make your own by using these scary fonts. Use them to make signs, labels or anything else your dark imagination can cast. One good idea is to buy some scroll paper and print out your own scary story. Just unroll the script and read to the children, it will really add to the atmosphere and make them scream.
Halloween for your iPod
Don’t forget about your iPod during this year’s Halloween. This software contains iPod Halloween wallpaper and videos that will turn your iPod into a very scary device. Anyone that sees this will want it for their iPod too.
Halloween is a fun time of the year and it is very pleasant watching the children have such a good time, laugh and be frightened but adults can have fun too and seem to enjoy it as much as the kids. You need to keep a close eye on the children during this time of year and remember safety comes first but being scared and having a good time comes second!
