My favorite holiday (BOO!)

Happy Halloween!

Yes, Halloween is my favorite holiday. I'll be printing out fun graphics to tape to my door (pumpkins and fancy decorations don't last long around here, lots of teenagers). Every year I hand out way too much candy. This year I have two megabags I bought at Sam's Club.

I love watching a scary movie and contributing to juvenile tooth decay.

What are your Halloween plans? Is Halloween celebrated in countries other than the US? I can't picture it without the fall leaves blowing around.

Hi Doug,
My Halloween plans?.. Pitza, couple of beers and a night in front of the tele.
The Premiere of Wes Cravens Dracula is showing on sky Movie Max tonight in England, that will do nicely

I thought about dyeing my hair red, white and blue, and spiking it. But I gave up on that idea. I'll just wait for the goblins to show up, and I'll help the tooth decay movement.

I use it as a means to exercise for my weekly quota. All that jumping out of my comfortable arm chair to answer the doorbell for spooky little candy gobblers is a huge work out.
Down here in Florida you actually get to see the whole costume. When I trick or treated in Michigan growing up the only part visible under my snow suit was my mask.

As is usual for my area, it is snowing out. I think we've had snow on Halloween for 12 out of the 14 years I've lived here! I feel so sorry for the kids - they're all bundled up. So much for costumes! (One kid was dressed as a ski bum - now THAT's the spirit! )

I had planned on carving a cat face into a pumpkin, but it wouldn't be seen through the snow anyway. At least I remembered to buy the candy...

Jeanie,
Down in Florida we get to see all the cute costumes but if we carve a pumpkin it had better be on Halloween because it will rot by the following day. By the time the holiday arrives the pumpkins that have been on sale in the outdoor pumpkin patches are pretty much rotted. Nothing worse than carving a cute face on your pumpkin only to have it look like Grandpa with out his teeth the next day.

Bummer about the pumpkins DJ. We had some beautiful pumpkins this year. I still want to carve mine so I can take a picture of it! (How's that for a pathetic excuse?)

No fall leaves here Doug, just lots of snow and cold (about -10 C) as for Plans, I worked tonight, then came home and ate leftover candy
