Interesting Facts About Halloween!

Hello Earthlings!

Like many souls out there, Halloween is my favorite holiday of the year. I love everything about it, from the scary movies, to the decorations, and the legends… and, of course, the candy! Halloween brings back memories of my middle school years, when we used to dress up as actual witches to go trick or treating! These days, adult Halloween costumes have gotten a bit too short, won’t you agree? But – I am not here to talk about Halloween costumes, I’ll leave Party City to tell you about their top ten female costumes.

Ready to spook the neighborhood children? I am ready to steal candy from my nephew’s trick or treating bag!

As one of the best days of the year approaches, here is a list of interesting Halloween facts that will keep you on the verge of your seat!

  1. Halloween is the second highest grossing commercial holiday after Christmas!
  2. Samhainophobia is the fear of Halloween.
  3. Ireland is typically believed to be the birthplace of Halloween
  4. Halloween has been around for 6.000 years
  5. A full moon on Halloween is extremely rare – though a common trope in horror movies and Halloween decorations with witches flying across the full moon. This will not occur until 2020. We’ve got some time, folks!
  6. Chocolate candy bars top the list as the most popular candy for trick-or-treaters with Snickers #1.
  7. Halloween was brought to North America by immigrants from Europe who would celebrate the harvest around a bonfire, share ghost stories, sing, dance and tell fortunes.
  8. Orange and black are Halloween colors because orange is associated with the Fall harvest and black is associated with darkness and death.
  9. There really are so-called vampire bats, but they’re not from Transylvania. They live in Central and South America and feed on the blood of cattle, horses and birds.
  10. “Halloween” was made in only 21 days in 1978 on a very limited budget.

Pet – Peeves @ Parties – Part 1

  1. Mr. Know-It-allSo there you are! You are out at a house party, drinking wine, or beer *hopefully with one of our awesome koozies* and Mr. Know – It- All suddenly approaches you. And oh boy! You are in trooooooouble! This guy, walks around the room, thinking he knows it all. He is nosey, wants to know your business – So where do you work?  He finds ways to plug in his opinion, or as he calls it “wisdom”, on your life. Dude – nobody asked you! Chillax. But — nay. He knows everything. He has advice on you work, love, family, Tinder life. Listen, if I were you, this is what I would do… And you are just standing there, holding you beer *protected by our awesome koozie* shaking your head in disappointment.

 

2. The Beer – Pong maniac 

Beer pong is played across millions of college dorms by millions of drunken 20 years olds… it is a fun way to get drunk. You line up red cups and begin shooting balls, drinking cheap beer and tada. The thing is, a lot of people take this friendly and fun game of pong seriously. Sorry to break the news this way but Beer Pong ain’t a sport. I doubt someone will hand you a trophy, maybe a koozie but defintely not a trophy. You kicking my ass in beer pong doesn’t mean anything AT ALL. So – please, chill.

 

 

3. People wasting beer…

It saddens me to watch perfectly good beer go to waste. Ever had those annoying guests walk around the house, holding their beer a bit too tight? Well –  not only are they LAME – but they clearly do not know that their grip makes their beer warm! As the night progresses,  you watch the same guests grab more beer and send their perfectly good Corona down the drain because their beer is too “warm.” Ugh!!  Between you and me, I do not want to see beer go to waste! It hurts my wallet! Either drink it all, or don’t drink it at all.

 

The good news, we can stop this crazy nonsense with our awesome beer insulators! If you ever attend one of my parties, you will automatically be given a koozie. As I said, I do not like to waste beer. Beer is holy. We don’t waste beer! Therefore, the best way to keep your beer cold, and you friends’ beers cold is by holding your beer with our personalized koozies <3

 

Dress your beer in style with our koolies <3

FRIDAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Ladies and gents of the internet world,

IT IS FRIDAY!!!!!

Today is the 23rd day of the 10th month of the year 2015.  HOLY LADY GAGA! This year flew out of our hands, didn’t it?  Did you do all the crazy things from that crazy bucket list you wrote last December? Technically, you still have time! We have 2 months to prepare for that marathon, lose 10 pounds (or however many you’d like  to lose), and do all the crazy things you thought you were going to do right now.

My plans for the weekend are as follow:

1. Clean my room — you should see the damn thing. Actually – never mind. You should not come near the premises of my place. It looks like WW3.

 

 

2. Take a nap after cleaning my room – because let’s face it, I will probably be really tired from cleaning my little room.

3. Ride my bicycle!

\

 

4.  Watch Netflix – anyone out there obsessed with documentaries? Raise your hand

 

 

5. Maybe go on a date with some cute bearded manboy. 

 

6. Go to happy hour, somewhere in the city.

 

 

7. Drink beer. A lot of it. Like tons of it. 

 

And of course, I will have my go – to koozie ready for me. In fact, I will be carrying it around, while everyone else’s drink is hot, my beer will be cold and awesome.

 

I hope you have a great weekend!

 

Drink responsibly 🙂

Worst Advice Ever Koozie Edition

The first day of spring is next week, so that means it’s that time of year again!  Daylights saving time: Spring forward.  If you follow Rob Ford, Mayor of Toronto, on Twitter I hope you didn’t follow his advice.  He told his followers to set their clocks back an hour (aka fall back) instead of SPRING forward.  In light of the worst advice ever, so far this year, I’ve complied a list of the worst Koozie advice ever.

Worst Advice Ever Koozie Edition

1. Keep your koozies in the bathtub. Neoprene koozies are made out of the same material as scuba gear!

2. Quit your job and frequent bars that giveaway free koozies.

3. Customize a koozie your wedding, but spell your last name wrong!

4. Legally change your last name to Koozie

5. Cuddle with your favorite koozies at night- they keep your drinks cool, but your bed hot and steamy!

What’s the worst advice you’ve ever received?

As always comment & share!

Koozie Inventions

I like shortcuts.  I like driving shortcuts, keyboard shorcuts and cooking shortcuts.  Because I’m such a shortcut oriented person, I often think, “Hey, someone needs to invent a thingy for this-or-that.”  Last night, a group of friends went out to dinner.  I gave her, what I think is, two really funny gifts.  I gave her koozies (duh!) and a tea bag squeezer. It’s a shortcut for drinking tea and a neat invention.  Maybe even more appropriately, a gadget to make your life easier.  Who wants to touch a gross tea bag?  And if you want to get the most out of your money (and your tea bag) squeeze the crap out it!

Koozies are beverage gadgets that make your life easier.  Luke warm drinks are a huge pet peeve of mine!  Koozies are a really neat invention!  What’s even better?  There are plenty of koozie inventions.  Koozies come in all different sizes, so you can enjoy the invention with your favorite beverage.  The small can koozie fits Red Bulls cans.  The large energy can koozie fits Monster cans and Arizona Iced Tea cans.  There are even koozies that fit your mason jar and water bottle!

If only we could invent a koozie that fits a Ben and Jerry’s ice cream container….
