October! What happens in October that you love? For me it is 4 birthdays – my son, Grandson, a Grandnephew and my sister. It’s Thanksgivings [in Canada] and the best thing of all its Halloween and my favourite song The Monster Mash.
This song done by Bobby “Boris” Pickett was first introduced in 1962. This song is now 50 years old and still gets a lot of air time every October.
This challenge is for you to check out the lyrics to the Monster Mash . Choose your favourite line from the song and depict it on an ACEO or three!
