5 Things That Have Actually Gone Wrong On Halloween

Halloween


There’s a running joke between our friends that whenever my wife and I have a Halloween Party, something bad happens.  I guess it is sort of true.  In the past few years, we’ve had a bit of bad luck when it comes to Halloween Parties.  In 2008, on the night of our party, my wife was rear-ended on her way home from work and had to stand on the side of the road in her costume for over an hour.  In 2010, I had to make a visit to the emergency room the day before our party for a problem with my leg.  And, the piece de resistance, in 2009, I DROPPED  OVER DEAD in the middle of our Halloween Party, had CPR done on me for 20 minutes,  and then had to be life flighted to a hospital, where I stayed until Thanksgiving!  Yeah, that year wasn’t so good.  Hopefully, we have no problems this year.  We are not alone with our troubles on Halloween, though.  Here is a list of five other groups of people who had a really bad All Hallow’s Eve!

Halloween DeathsEverybody dies.  However, except for a few dozen notables offed by a teenage-killing madman in the movie, Halloween, most people don’t go on the scariest night of the year.  Maybe it is that we just don’t pay attention to the other days out of the year.  Last year, I, unfortunately, joined the ranks of these five below, but was lucky enough to be “brought back” from the brink of death through CPR and fast response.  Here are five of the most famous people that decided to pass over on the darkest night.
