On the international radio program “Christmas Across the Lands,” Christoween “Creep-ator” Wally Wingert voices a character called Wally the Elf. He’s a character at the North Pole that host Randy Sherwyn consults for special bits of Christmas trivia. In this year’s show, Randy allowed Wally the Elf a quick plug for the Christoween website and story series! Have a listen here!

At the recent L.A. Comic Con, Christoween(R) “Chill-ustrator” Patrick Owsley was busy creating wonderful art at his table for fans. He also took the time to spread the word about “Christoween Capers(R)” by handing out promotional schedule cards. That way fans and friends will know which audibles will drop on which of the 13 Weeks of Christoween!
We’re so proud to be able to donate a book to this worthy cause! Well done, Marcos!

In the “spirit” of the old Flat Stanley books, we created Puppet Donnie. That way the hero of our capers could be photographed enjoying certain sights at this year’s Son of Monsterpalooza in Burbank, California! Puppet Donnie posed for all sorts of photos and some free Christoween® character patches were given out.
It’s always great catching up with our old pal Rossiter!
And what would Monsterpalooza be without running into the Monster Party podcast crew?
DragonGirl118’s posse selected free Donnie patches!

Halloween and Christmas are tied for “favorite holiday of the year.” Why choose? Let’s celebrate all season long with Christoween® – a hybrid of the two!
