Express Yourself: Scary Places (Wooooooo)

Happy Tuesday. :) The Cover Girls, aka Jackie @ Bouquet of Books and Dani @ Entertaining Interests provide these fun questions for us to get to know their readers a little better and vice versa. Feel free to join in and comment their posts with the link to yours.

This week, they ask: Where would be the scariest place to spend Halloween?

Anyone else live in a town or state that has an old, prominent family in it? Ours are the DuPonts, and my cousin got married in their Bellevue House (which was turned into a park by the DuPont children), which is a replica of James Madison's Montpelier. My sister saw a crawlspace in the women's bathroom. We saw a hidden door in the room where the ceremony was, and I was able to pull a piece of the fireplace's broken brick out to peek inside. I'm sure had I moved the rubble, there would've been a secret switch or something. We even took my mom up to the DuPont estate Wintherthur for her birthday last year (it's so big, it has its own zip code).

Old, scary houses, especially mansions, always bring old ghosts to mind (like the awesomely bad movie The Haunting). One day, I'm going to start writing a ghosts-in-the-mansion story, but it would need to be really original. lol


Where do YOU think the scariest place to spend Halloween would be?


  1. I think an old, abandoned prison or insane asylum would be scary.

  2. I'm with Alex on his choices.

    I'm also too much of a chicken to go to those Halloween Horror Night type things a lot of amusement parks put on.

  3. I don't think I would want to go anywhere scary for Halloween! I'm just way too easily startled.

  4. Old houses like that would be such a freaky Halloween destination, for sure! I absolutely adore ghost stories, so I think it'd be cool to see you write a ghosts-in-the-mansion one someday! :)
