Halloween

Halloween, or Hallowe'en, also known as Allhalloween, All Hallows' Eve, or All Saints' Eve, is a yearly celebration observed in a number of countries on 31 October, the eve of the Western Christian feast of All Hallows' Day. It begins the three-day observance of Allhallowtide, the time in the liturgical year dedicated to remembering the dead, including saints (hallows),martyrs, and all the faithful departed believers.

If you would like to haunt the Library's collections to see what you can summon up in terms of classic Gothic literature, you could go to ProQuest's Literature Online.  Alternatively, if the spirit is willing, you could check out EBSCO's Journal of Folklore Research or any of our other excellent e-resources.  
Also, don't forget to check some of the fabulous spooky tales in our Leisure Reading collection, which includes such great authors as Dean Koontz, Joe Hill and, of course, Stephen King.
Let's hope your PC doesn't need re-ghosting.
