Happy Halloween! Fan Scene decided to get into the Halloween spirit with a spooky new banner to celebrate the holiday. We WERE going to change David into a vampire, because, well, who can forget that classic KISS 108 interview last year when David answered the question “What’s the best Halloween costume you’ve ever had?” by saying…
When I was a kid I always liked to be Dracula for some reason. I was really into Dracula. Not blood or anything. It’s not like I was into blood or anything. Well, like, the fake blood, but it’s not – I don’t – I didn’t…never mind. I like Dracula.
But, since this is a new year…we decided to go with a different theme. David Archul ET a. Seriously. Who would make a better alien? David has a song called “ZERO GRAVITY“; He describes himself as “SPACEY“; He’s a rising STAR, and… his voice is simply OUT OF THIS WORLD! YEAH!
We know some of you are probably groaning to yourselves saying, “Ehhh, okay Fan Scene, you scared the pumpkin out of me. But couldn’t you have made David look like a cuter… more cuddly alien?”
But that would have been too easy.
And after all – this IS Halloween!
Hope we didn’t ALIENATE anyone.
Anyway…so, in typical Fan Scene fashion, here’s some American Halloween history to satisfy your intellectual sweet-tooth (since Ivan ate all the candy! ) compliments of history.com.
“The tradition of dressing in costume for Halloween has both European and Celtic roots. Hundreds of years ago, winter was an uncertain and frightening time. Food supplies often ran low and, for the many people afraid of the dark, the short days of winter were full of constant worry. On Halloween, when it was believed that ghosts came back to the earthly world, people thought that they would encounter ghosts if they left their homes. To avoid being recognized by these ghosts, people would wear masks when they left their homes after dark so that the ghosts would mistake them for fellow spirits. On Halloween, to keep ghosts away from their houses, people would place bowls of food outside their homes to appease the ghosts and prevent them from attempting to enter.”
