11th annual Hipville Halloween

11th annual Hipville Halloween... Double, double, toil and trouble. Fire Burn and Cauldron Bubble!! Come on over & get spooked, Halloween items for sale too, lots of photo props, cuddle areas...Most of all just enjoy yourself.. ; ) 


Yes, Fall is here and we are ready for it too. The colors of Fall are ever so beautiful and Greg and I decided to go and explore some Halloween sims and we stumbled up The Hipville Halloween. This is a fun place to walk around in and the hunt will give you some neat and different items you can use for your Halloween decor. We enjoyed it. The sounds seem kind of loud as well as the music but I just turned it off and it made it enjoyable. Stop by and check it out when you can.
Greg had to bob for apples. Apple bobbing, also known as bobbing for apples, is a game often played on Halloween. The game is played by filling a tub or a large basin with water and putting apples in the water. Because apples are less dense than water, they will float to the surface. Players (usually children) then try to catch one with their teeth. Use of arms is not allowed and often are tied behind the back to prevent cheating.


I was thinking this may have a meaning because I read up about bobbing for apples and here is what I found: 

The tradition of bobbing for apples dates back to the Roman invasion of Britain when the conquering army merged their own celebrations with traditional Celtic festivals. The Romans brought with them the apple tree, a representation of the goddess of fruit trees, Pomona. During an annual celebration, young unmarried people try to bite into an apple floating in water or hanging from a string; the first person to bite into the apple would be the next one to be allowed to marry. So go ahead Greg, keep biting, Hahahahaha.


Oh well, he is strong in other ways. He can lift me with one arm and balance on a ball. Freaky in its own way. Who needs normal anyway?
