No Orbs Here....

I didn't get to take a lot of pictures this morning during our Second Halloween festivities, but I did document the Houdini shrine we built for him in hopes of his making an appearance. Houdini was dedicated to debunking those who claimed to speak to the spirit world, but after his mother passed away he tried in vain to contact her. He made a pact with his wife that if he were to die, he would do everything in his power to reach out to her from the other side. If it could be done, the master escape artist was sure he would do it. Halloween was designated to be the day he would reach out, and for years and years seances were held in attempt to do so. All of them were unsuccessful.

As far as we know. nobody has ever tried to contact Houdini on Second Halloween, so we gave it a shot this morning. We left a microphone open for him - just in case he wanted to join the conversation. We also offered him his favorite food, "Farmer's Chop Suey".

We didn't hear a peep from Houdini this morning but we had a blast. Thanks to all of the trick or treaters who joined us in the studio - and for all of the great Second Halloween requests. Shyboy Tim has a bunch of photos that he will share soon, so check back for more.


UPDATE:  Here are Shyboy Tim's photos!  BEST.  SECOND HALLOWEEN.  EVER!

Thanks to all the Trick-Or-Treaters that stopped in to make this the best Second Halloween on record.  It's just a shame that it only rolls around every four years!  We didn't have any luck contacting Houdini, but there's always next Leap Year.

Cool side note:  Second Halloween was mentioned on somebody's Twitter feed!
