As a society we are obsessed with games. We love to watch them and cheer for our favorite teams. We love to play with our friends. But sometimes, the fear of losing will make you so desperate you will do whatever it takes to win. Even if it means risking your own life and taking down everyone else around you in your fatal games.

If you're listening, then you are one of those people who loves a good scare. And that means Halloween is your tie of year. It's ours, too. We get a thrill from losing our breath as our blood pumps extra fast through our veins. We delight in stories of witchcraft, fairies, and other mythical folklore. Knowing, praying deep down that the tales we hear may be real. But the reality is when we're faced with these things in real life, that good scare, may scare us to death.

There are two kinds of people: those who avoid being scared and those who are drawn to terror. These people won't be afraid to venture into an abandoned house, or head deep into the woods. But when you go looking for trouble, you might just find yourself amongst hazardous hauntings.

Zombies, werewolves, and vamps, oh my. These three staples of halloween have become so mainstream we almost forget their origins. We forget the deep in the shadows lurk blood suckers pining for a taste of you to survive. Broken boned beasts with an instinct to kill. And mindless bodies ready to eat your brains. Never forget that these are the monsters of the night.

Satan, beelzebub, el diablo, the devil has many names. But in the present day we can be so metaphorical with our language. We will call anyone we disagree with, "the devil," or say anything that makes us uncomfortable is like being in hell.

We've all heard the tall tales and urban legends around the campfire. Some passed down from generation to generation, yet never with an actual eye-witness.

We make assumptions about the things that scare us: a stranger, the darkness, even abandoned hallways. We presume that they are inherently dangerous. But the truth is, they're just the unknown. You may be surprised at the protection you'll get from a stranger, or the peace you'll find in the dark. As with many things, the answer isn’t always clear cut - instincts can be wrong. That inherent danger you’ve been taught to fear, may have been trying to save you all along….

So often when we know we are surrounded by people we can trust, we let down our guards. In the company of family, co-workers, or care-givers we feel out of harm's way. But when ghosts, spirits, or even evil entities become involved, no one is safe.

Anything that is worthwhile in life typically requires lots of hard work and sacrifice.

We often believe the stories we are told because they comfort us. These stories can explain the mysterious, the inconceivable, even deadly disappearances. But sometimes stories are used deceptively to hide and obscure the truth. To avoid horrible realities that are staring at us right in the face.

Life is filled with pain and suffering. Thankfully there are many different ways we learn to cope. We let things roll off our backs, we toughen up and face problems head on. We can rely on good friends and family help. But when none of that works, the people who suffer in silence will enact their revenge on those who have caused them pain. And there's nothing anyone can do about it.
