Today was just another Thursday. I got up, had a cup of coffee, took the boys to school, and dusted the igloo. You know, Thursday. And then it hit me. Today is the beginning of Club Penguin’s Halloween Party. I need to buy some candy, and possibly little, cold fish.
Here’s the official word from Club Penguin:
Beware! Club Penguin’s Halloween Party has more tricks and treats than ever…. Members can get ready for Halloween with tons of costumes in Penguin Style and new spooky igloo furniture. When the party starts Oct. 17, [that's TODAY!] everyone can trick-or-treat around the island and collect candy! Members may discover special, cursed candies which will give them the power to transform into howling werewolves, flying puffle vampire bats, and zombies who release ghouls from the ground. Members who get the jack-o’-lantern igloo item will be placed on an exclusive Trick-or-Treat igloo list that’s displayed for other players to see. Will you haunt the island or hunt for candy this Halloween in Club Penguin? Join the party Oct. 17-31. If you dare.
If I dare? If I dare? Of course I dare! I laugh in the face of cursed candy, and then I eat it. Wait, cursed means high-fructose corn syrup, right?
Needless to say, my boys will be doing quite a bit of virtual trick-or-treating this month, and no zombie is going to waddle in our way!
Will your little penguins be at the party?
Note: Paid membership required for most extras.
