*walks in wearing a witch costume* 

Hello my fellow spooky NMGers! 

Welcome to the NMG Spookyville town! I bet you didn’t know this place existed, it’s been dormant since 1932. This is where ghosts roam freely and witches fly their brooms un interrupted. I stubbled upon it without even realizing. 


Now that the introduction is out of the way I can tell you what’s going on. 

Halloween is approaching and I was think about how I could bring trick or treating to life on NMG. And I came up with Spookyville! 

How it works: 

Anyone who wants to can open a house (by making a message board) which will be open to certain number of trick or treaters (amount of trick or treaters will be limited to how many the owner of the house wants). People will sign up to be trick or treaters all throughout September and October. The deadline to become a trick or treater is decided by each individual house owner. 

The house owner then makes Halloween related goodies for their trick or treaters (like drawings, stories, poems, etc). The house owner can either do one gift for everyone or a bunch of different gifts. 

You can be a trick or treated at as many houses as you like. 

And then when Halloween rolls (October 31st) the trick or treaters go to the houses and say “trick or treat!” And the house owner PMs them the gift! 

You can make your house any time you want! Make sure you tag it ‘Spookyville’ and feel free to draw a picture of what your house looks like!

If you have any questions or if I missed anything please let me know.

  • I have noticed some of you have already done your gifts. Which is totally fine you can do what ever you like. But I guess I didn’t make myself clear, my goal with this was that everyone would have a “basket” full of gifts on Halloween. If you want to give your gifts early that’s awesome too! So the trick or treaters can enjoy the gifts throughout the Halloween season. But you can also wait for October 31st
  • Ah this is so fun! I'll try to make a house, but I might not manage to :(
  • oh this is REALLY cute!! I'll try and make a house soon :)

Sleeping Over at a Friend's House

When I get invited to sleepover parties, I always end up wanting to go home before bed. Now that I am a rising 8th grader, I am starting to worry that my friends may find it babyish that I can't spend the night. Any advice? -Anonymous      I’ve had experience with this same problem before! When I used to often have sleepovers with my friends, I’d nearly always call my mom to pick me up when it came time to go to sleep.
