Cakes, candy and goblin eggs! Did you know that every third Tuesday of the month you can join institutions participating in the National Digital Newspaper Program in highlighting and sharing articles and images found in Chronicling America in a Twittter-based #ChronAmParty? Each month the NDNP participants nominate and select a theme for that month, usually related to a heritage celebration or nearby event or holiday.Â The day of the â€śpartyâ€ť each institution decides when and how to tweet their discoveries using the Twitter hashtag #ChronAmParty to link them together. This month the theme was #HalloweenTreats which produced some interesting and fun highlights including jack-o-lantern treats, recipes, decoration ideas, ads and more. Sixteen different institutions tweeted their selections throughout the day resulting in 85 tweets overall! Next month, follow along using the hashtag #ChronAmParty and retweet or tweet your own! But watch out or the Goblinsâ€™ll Get You! Read more about it!Â
This year got historians and archaeologists all hot under the elbow patches.
