All Hallows Ten

Ten Things to Help Celebrate Halloween

HGTV.com has some Halloween Ideas for making costumes, pumpkin-carving, party-planning and decorating.

Better Homes and Gardens has some interesting ideas for Halloween Decorations Outdoors.

To keep the guests busy, Party Game Central has a bunch of Halloween Party Games.

If you're having a Halloween party and are looking for some interesting recipes, here are some to check out: Knorr Spinach Dip (to serve this one, I hollow out a 1- or 2-pound round pumpernickle loaf, put the dip in the center, and chop up the bread I've removed into bite-size pieces. Also wonderful with raw veggies); Cooking Light magazine's Haunted Eats page; and Simple Halloween Recipes from ReadersDigest.com.

In case Charlie Brown needs a hand: How to Carve a Pumpkin (with lots of helpful graphics) from HowStuffWorks.com.

Carve your own designer pumpkin with How To Carve a Fancy Pumpkin with a Dremel.

If you're really going to get into the power tools, you have to stop in ExtremePumpkins.com and read How to Carve Pumpkins with Power Tools.

Naturally, there is a Halloween.com, and they've got plenty to offer, including a page with Last Minute Quick Costume Ideas.

Also from ReadersDigest.com: if you're concerned about what you're handing out to the trick-or-treaters, check out Chandni Jhunjhunwala's healthy alternatives in The Best and Worst Halloween Snacks for Kids.

Need a classic Halloween read? Bartleby.com has archived the complete original text of Washington Irving's The Legend of Sleepy Hollow.
