When the dead rise up, you don't want to be caught unprepared. You also don't want to be in one of these 10 cities, according to real estate website Trulia.com.

One great trick is to make a hand-shaped piece of ice to throw in your grog. All you have to do is fill a nonpowdered, nonlatex surgical glove with water and freeze it. Important note: Make sure the glove is not latex; some people have latex allergies — that would really make your party scary. You can get them at local pharmacies and drug stores.

10 c. cranberry cocktail

3 c. orange juice

1 c. lime juice

Sugar to taste (optional)

Vodka, tequila and/or rum to taste (optional)

Mix all of the ingredients in a large punch bowl, hollowed-out pumpkin or kettle. Serve chilled (make ice cubes from one of the juices or apple juice.)
