How Many Days Until Halloween?

Idk. Let this page do the counting for you!

2018-10-11 update

Hey ghouls! It's been a few days since I've been on here, but I have not forgotten. I caught my first cold (or flu) of the season so I've spent the past few days catching up on sleep. I hope to be back up and running over the weekend. Then I'll get started on reviewing the very spooky additions you all have made to this project.

Thanks for your patience!



In the spirit of Hacktoberfest, I posted this project to GitHub with the purpose of giving developers a place to practice write coding and working with Git / Github. You can read my blog post or my AMA on open source for more on how this project came to be.
