Green Door Las Vegas Halloween 2010 Sunset Thomas Promo.m4v
When I was a teen I always wanted to go to the mall. Teens want to go to the mall. They want to shop alone, without parents, without their siblings there. Going to the mall is one of the best shopping experiences for teens. They get to hang out with their friends, talk to boys or girls. It's a way of social networking for them outside of school.
Teens want to go somewhere where they can be themselves and be with their friends. Some of the best shopping malls I know of in Nevada are in Las Vegas. The Galleria at Sunset is a huge mall, that's very sunny and open. Light comes in through the ceiling and there is a huge food court and lots of stores to go to. It's also near a Halloween store, Best Buy, and plenty of restaurants. Teens love this mall because there are so many popular stores there like The Gap, Forever 21, and Charlotte Russo. Along with tons of music and video stores and of course all the large department stores like Meryvn's, Dillards, JCPenny, and Dick's Sporting Goods. This is a two story mall which also affords the experience of running up and down escalators and stairs and yelling at each other from one level to another! Not that mall security much likes that, but it's what teens want to do. Another great mall in Vegas is the Boulevard Mall.
They have a lot of the same great stores as the Galleria, however this is a very large and long mall. All one story and on a main street in Vegas, near tons of fast food restaurants and not far from the high schools in the area. This is also one of the only malls in Vegas where you can find a Hello Kitty store that sells everything Hello Kitty along with all the other Hello Kitty friends. Some of the higher end malls that teens want to go to are at the casinos. During the day they can definitely be there, at night it's a little bit different and a lot busier. The Forum Shops at Caesar's Palace, The Venetian, Planet Hollywood just to name a few.
These malls are very cool and have a lot shops and stores in there that your not going to find anywhere else in Vegas. Teens love these because there on the strip, in the heart of Vegas and there is so much to do at the mall and the casino itself. Teens want a fun experience while shopping so they can interact with their friends and get away from it all.

When is Halloween? What do you know about Halloween?
Halloween is an annual celebration held on the night of October 31. Trick or treat is the main event in the United States.
The American tradition of "trick-or-treating" probably dates back to the early All Souls' Day parades in England. During the festivities, poor citizens would beg for food and families would give them pastries called "soul cakes" in return for their promise to pray for the family's dead relatives.
The distribution of soul cakes was encouraged by the church as a way to replace the ancient practice of leaving food and wine for roaming spirits. The practice, which was referred to as "going a-souling" was eventually taken up by children who would visit the houses in their neighborhood and be given ale, food, and money.
The tradition of dressing in costume for Halloween has both European and Celtic roots. Hundreds of years ago, winter was an uncertain and frightening time. Food supplies often ran low and, for the many people afraid of the dark, the short days of winter were full of constant worry. On Halloween, when it was believed that ghosts came back to the earthly world, people thought that they would encounter ghosts if they left their homes. To avoid being recognized by these ghosts, people would wear masks when they left their homes after dark so that the ghosts would mistake them for fellow spirits. On Halloween, to keep ghosts away from their houses, people would place bowls of food outside their homes to appease the ghosts and prevent them from attempting to enter.
People will buy some Halloween supplies before Halloween. During Halloween, children dress in Halloween costumes and take Halloween pumpkin going door-to-door to collect sweets, fruit, and other treats.
Halloween is commonly celebrated in the United States, Canada, the UK, Ireland, and it is now becoming popular even in Australia, New Zealand and the Philippines. Some Western European countries like Belgium, France and Spain have also recently started celebrating Halloween. Halloween gadget is necessary for Halloween. Halloween gadgets will make Halloween more interesting.
Halloween art involves death, magic and mythical monsters. Halloween characters include ghosts, ghouls, witches, vampires, bats, owls, crows, vultures, haunted houses, pumpkin men, black cats, spiders, goblins, zombies, mummies, skeletons, werewolves, and demons.
Pumpkin carving is a popular part of modern America's Halloween celebration. Come October, pumpkins can be found everywhere in the country from doorsteps to dinner tables. Despite the widespread carving that goes on in this country every autumn, few Americans really know why or when the jack o' lantern tradition began. Or, for that matter, whether the pumpkin is a fruit or a vegetable.

As a fan of ghost stories and supernatural thought I would write about some of the ghost stories best known in the city of Chester, England. There are stories of George and Dungeon Pub in Chester being chased by the spirits of the Roman soldiers. A French restaurant occupied by the Old Fire Station is also haunted by the spirit of old fireman and many visitors say they have seen. Below is a list of Hauntings others:
Church of San Juan
The site of a ghost haunting by a monk. This spectrum only began appearing after the partial collapse of the great tower in 1881. That prayer has been heard, and it seems so real, it was held only that he was not a real monk when he vanished in the air in front of witnesses surprised. A monk, quite possibly the same, going to and from the Church for approval of age that runs through the side of the tower west and river. This ghost has also been described as follows another route, over the river, through the bars of the present chapel, and along an underground secret passage that connects the Anchorite Cell with the church. It has also been described as crossing the bowling to the cell of an anchorite.
The Glory of This - Northgate Street.
In 1642 the English Civil War began between forces loyal to King Charles and Parliament. In this Chester was once an important sea port city and was a realist.
In 1645 the Parliament's army attacked the city to make the port facilities Tues away from the King.
Many soldiers were in Chester to defend the city and the houses were used for housing officers. One such officer was placed in Blue Bell and fell in love with the daughter of the owner. One day she went home to take office on the walls of the city, but never returned, he was killed during an attack of ... Your loved one can not face life without him, so she committed suicide in the basement of the glory of the East. To this day his ghost walks from the basement to the upstairs window where he used to look for his return
The Boot Inn - Eastgate Street
Built in 1643 the owner worked as a barber-surgeon and his wife as a "lady" with his group of "ladies of the night." Sometimes at night, when all is quiet, soft sounds of laughter and the murmur of conversation off in empty rooms can be heard. From time to time even the front door is to be blocked
The Falcon Inn - Bridge Street.
Built in the early 17 as the town house of the Baronet Grosvenor, which was later sold to a gentleman. The new owner used an angry servant who was soon deposed and expelled the house. Homeless on the streets of Chester died. His ghost has returned to his place of employment and places of the house became an inn only makes a few years.
A building has been maintained on this site at least 700 years, the Falcon is a traditional "construction of Chester" with a black and facade white frame within the original 13th century stone piers that once formed the front of the building can be seen.
The building was the headquarters of the Grosvenor family for the time of the Civil War, during which time he had a servant named Molly. It is alleged he was fired and expelled from the house during a bad snowstorm, had nowhere go and was found dead the next morning in the snow.
The Falcon staff say they can feel a presence, but a very nice feeling and are often talking to it. Things often move or disappear. Staff often say they feel someone touching them on the shoulder.
Only there has been a sighting in recent years, but is also a photograph of a staff member took a wedding in the pub, the figure of a woman appears on the back of the photograph that nobody recognizes.
The Old Kings Head - Street Bridge

The story of a beautiful maiden who lived at home. Her bedroom is now 4 rooms in the inn. Two young people fell in love with this beautiful sylph, but I knew it could only have one. A double is organized, the survivor would take the hand of this maiden. Unfortunately, both died and today any young girl asleep in the room 4 is awakened by the presence of two ghosts slender young and handsome.

For an urgent call, the Count, who was called to Shrewsbury, which was at a distance of 40 miles. Away for many days he forgot all about the young man who died alone in the room. At night you hear crying from the room was locked and died in.

Also seems to be a lot of activity in the managers floor where the windows opened by themselves and strange messages are left on the answering machine.
