Halloween Terminology

Halloween 2017 is on the way! To help those who may be “Halloween Challenged”, I have composed a list of common misconceptions to assist your Halloween vocabulary.

The idea came to me after watching several different LuLaRoe Live Sales. It seems the majority of LLR consultants have no idea what the patterns they are selling actually represent. Never fear, the King of Halloween is here to help.

PUMPKIN vs. JACK O’ LANTERN – these two words are not interchangeable. Pumpkins are a variant of the squash, technically a berry in the fruit world. That’s it. You can eat them raw, make them into pies,  carve them into… Jack O’ Lanterns – or pumpkins with faces. The reason you cannot use both terms synonymously is that Jack O’ Lanterns can be carved out of anything, like turnips for instance. And pumpkins without faces are JUST PUMPKINS.

TEETH vs. FANGS – Specifically in humans, these are not the same thing. Natural homosapien teeth are generally not very threatening. The Halloween portrayal is commonly in reference to vampires and werewolves. These are fangs, elongated Canines. Sometimes, like the classic Nosferatu, these are extended Central Incisors. I know, I know, a lot of people call them “Vampire Teeth”.

SKELETONS and their FACES – this is more of a joke, but I am sure some people confuse this. We all know what a skeleton looks like. The ‘face’ of the skeleton is part of the head, commonly referred to as the SKULL. Calavera for you Spanish speakers. This is not referred to as the Face of the Skeleton, LOL Kait.

FRANKENSTEIN and HIS MONSTER – I’d bet these misnomers have been an issue since Mary Shelley published The Modern Prometheus in 1818. The story that most of the world knows by this time is about a guy – a regular human guy – named Victor Frankenstein. That’s his last name. He created a monster (but nobody wants to see Marshall no more, they want Shady, I’m chop liver). The monster was never named, but commonly referred to as Frankenstein’s Monster. THE MONSTER’S NAME IS NOT FRANKENSTEIN.

So there you have it, now you know what you are talking about when you mention some of these Halloween things. Remember, those beetles you see on leggings are Scarabs, Bats are not “Flying Radar Mice” and if you want to pronounce ‘Dracula’ all cool and Carpathian-like, say it like “Dra-Kool-Yah”.

Happy Haunting 🙂  — The King of Halloween
