Monster House is a great movie taking place in common suburbia on Hallow’s Eve. All the kids in the neighborhood are ready for trick or treating – with two exceptions. DJ’s parents have left for vacation and he’s home alone with his ‘sweet-on-the-outside-sour-inside’ babysitter, Zee, who would rather hang out with her slacker boyfriend, Bones, than actually do her job. Luckily DJ has his best friend Chowder with him, as the two are on a mission. They’re convinced that the run-down house across the street is going to have its own tricks and treats this Halloween.
A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens Ebenezer Scrooge has one love, money. He loathes all things that bring cheer and happiness to others, so naturally, he despises the whole Christmas season. One Christmas Eve, Scrooge is visited by a deceased friend and partner, Jacob Marley. Marley has been dead for seven years and was just as selfish as Scrooge.

On past Halloweens, the local kids have broken windows, and worse, so I need someone to stay there the whole night to make sure no harm comes to my building. I will pay $3000 for anybody willing to do this, but I must be completely honest and disclose the fact that previous house sitters have run out of the house in the middle of the night because they were convinced the house was haunted by ghosts. Some of them were so scared that they went completely crazy and had to be committed to a mental institution. If you have the courage to accept this job, please call me. –Dick Shore, 917-555-1221 Finish this story.
The Headless Horseman One Halloween night these 3 boys named Michael, Astrid, and Dante were at Michael’s house. They were telling dreadful stories of the past.

Meanwhile, the festival of the Lupercal (a big party where people run around in goatskin g-strings in the middle of February) is in full swing. Caesar is chilling at the festival with his entourage when a soothsayer runs up and says "beware the Ides of March" (meaning, "hey, watch your back on March 15"). Caesar looks at the soothsayer and is all "whatever man." While Caesar parties with his fans, Brutus and Cassius huddle together and talk trash about him.
