Hanging Bats and Hissing Cats and Scary Coffins, Oh My!

Here in North Texas we recently had our first cool (not cold) snap of the fall.

halloween-1743272_1280.cropped.jpg

The dip in temperatures was brief - only lasting for a couple of days - but we recognized it as a harbinger of the holiday season soon to arrive.

The first one in the pipeline is Halloween, which comes up in a couple of weeks.

Halloween isn't as popular as Thanksgiving or Christmas.

One funny aphorism we came across while writing this post was this one:

There are two kinds of people in this world: those who love Halloween, and adults.

Two of Our Three Jack O'Lantern Assets

We don't happen to agree about adults not loving Halloween.

That said, how much you enjoy it is a function of many factors, including whether you still enjoy dressing up in costumes or have small children to take trick-or-treating in your neighborhood.

But if you are a fan of the holiday and an Egowall member, you'll be glad to know that we have more than fifteen themed assets you can use to bring the Halloween spirit to any of your living spaces.

These include:

Candy BowlCemetery Gates
CoffinFlying Bat

Scary Black CatStanding Black Cat
Happy Jack O'LanternSad Jack O'Lantern
Scary Jack O'LanternTombstone - Crumbling

Several of our boo-tiful assets are displayed on this page; to see the rest, check out our Instagram feed or our Facebook page.

Two of Our Three Black Cat Assets

In the game itself, you'll discover these holiday objects in the "Miscellaneous" section of the Furniture shopping category for each applicable living space style.

Add one or all of them to your inventory and use them to boo-tify your living space(s) for the season.

After you've done that, we'd like to see what you come up with. Share your favorite sites here in the comments.

Whether you are going to a costume party or staying home to dole out too much candy to trick-or-treaters, we hope you have a fangtastic holiday.

And don't forget to #BeTheRealBoo at all times.

How Lovely Are Thy (Digital) Branches

O Christmas tree, o Christmas tree
How lovely are thy branches.
O Christmas tree, o Christmas tree
How lovely are thy branches.

Your boughs so green in summertime
Stay bravely green in wintertime
O tannenbaum, o Christmas tree
How lovely are thy branches.

It seems appropriate that our final weekly post on the most popular images on our Instagram feed features a Christmas tree.

While flocked trees in the real world are indeed beautiful, they can also be quite messy.

Of course, that's not a problem in the digital environment of Egowall.

The Christmas Tree - White image seen at right is one of two holiday trees in our collection of seasonal décor items.

You'll also find nutcrackers, stockings, sleds, ornaments and gift boxes there. In fact, the ornaments can be easily added to the tree to make any room more festive.

Add them - or any of our digital goods - to your own living spaces by making a quick stop in our store, which is accessible from anywhere in the Egowall game.

We hope you have enjoyed seeing all of our Christmas-themed furniture objects, which we have been sharing on Instagram and our other social platforms during December.

Be please be careful not to shoot your eye out.

See you in 2017.

A (Christmas) Tradition Unlike Any Other

Christmas traditions are a big part of the fun each holiday season.

Galileo NCC-1701/7 Shuttlecraft

There are many types of traditions, including those that surround the Christmas tree - the visual centerpiece of so many homes.

And while pretty trees - real or artificial - with lights are beautiful in their own right, the addition of ornaments to those trees makes each one truly unique.

R2-D2 and a Jawa

In our house, we have established a nice, efficient process - Henry Ford would have been proud - for hanging ornaments.

My wife puts all of the traditional ornaments - many of which we have had for decades - on hooks and our two children hang them on the tree.

When they have finished, I move some of them higher, as the kids are not able to easily reach the upper parts of our 9-foot tree.

Spider-Man, Spider-Man, Does Whatever a Spider Can...

Then comes my favorite part of the exercise - hanging my own special ornaments on the tree.

Since 1973, Hallmark has been producing Keepsake ornaments, which feature classic cars, traditional Christmas themes and favorite characters from Disney, Star Wars™, Peanuts® and more.

I started collecting Hallmark Star Trek and Star Wars ornaments in the early 1990s, and continue to do so to this very day.

In recent years, I have been adding various MARVEL and DC superheroes to the mix, along with a smattering of other pop culture ornaments.

This year, I have created an Egowall public space (see screen capture below) to showcase some of my favorite pop culture ornaments to give you a bit of insight into one of my personal interests (or vices - you make the call).

Christmas Ornament Showcase Public Space

Christmas Ornament Showcase Public Space

When you visit the space, in addition to a number of our Christmas-themed decor items, you will see pictures of the following ornaments:

  • Spider-Man
  • Captain America (from Captain America: The First Avenger)
  • Iron Man (from Avengers: Age of Ultron)
  • The Road Runner
  • Wall-E
  • USS Kelvin (from the 2009 reboot of Star Trek)
  • Galileo Shuttlecraft (from Star Trek: The Original Series)
  • USS Enterprise 1701-D (from Star Trek: The Next Generation)
  • R2-D2 and Jawa
  • Beetlejuice
  • Sheriff Woody (from Toy Story)
  • Kylo Ren (from Star Wars: The Force Awakens)
  • USS Enterprise NCC-1701-A
  • Deep Space Nine
  • USS Enterprise NCC-1701-C
  • Yellow Submarine
  • Delorean (from Back to the Future)
  • The Love Bug

We invite you to do the same.

Create a space which highlights your interests - those things that help make you who you are - and share it with your friends, family, and colleagues.
