A quick Halloween joke

I’m not a big Halloween fan, but my kids love it. I’d much rather just skip over it and get right to Christmas.

In honour of my kids, here is a quick church-related Halloween joke:

Why don’t skeletons play church music?

They’re missing their organs!


Why don’t Mormons wear masks for Halloween?

I’m a little late in posting this question, but better late than never.

A month or two ago in our BYC (Bishopric Youth Committee) meeting, we were planning the youth and ward Halloween parties. One of the youth spoke up and reminded others not to wear masks, and another youth asked why. One of the adult leaders spoke up and said that many of the people in the mob that killed Joseph Smith wore masks, so the Church encourages people to not wear masks. Is that true? I thought it was just because masks are creepy and we like to know who we are talking to.

Thomas S Monson pumpkin carving

Last year I came across a web site that showed a picture of Gordon B Hinckley carved into a pumpkin. This year, I’ve come across someone else who has done one of Thomas S Monson. Below is just a thumbnail. Click on through to Jay Ball’s web site to see a larger version.

Brett Nordquist, a member from Seattle, is good at carving pumpkins. He even carved one of Gordon B. Hinckley:
