We're creepy and we're kooky
I heart Hallowe'en...more than any other holiday. I know there are tons of people who don't celebrate it, and I know even more who did when they had kids, but don't anymore.

I know Glenda already asked about decorating, but I have a few more questions about your Hallowe'en traditions...

  Halloween, yayy!  

1.  I always carve at least one, this year I have two.  So far.  

2.  It varies year to year, but it's never the cheap kind that people I hate give out.  ("Fun size" my ass!  Ain't nothin' fun about a fraction of a Butterfinger.)  

3.  Nowadays, I host a costume-mandatory party.  It's lame, but so am I, so it works out.  

4.  There isn't much I don't love about Halloween.  OK, maybe I don't love candy corn.  But it's ok.  In moderation.  But, I'm a horror nerd, so I love the scary movies most of all.  

5.  I always dress up.  I have two costume ideas this year.  One is completely gross, inappropriate, repulsive, and offensive.  The other is a priest with a little boy attached to his crotch.  

6.  My all-time favorite is the original Halloween (I love the whole series ... some more than others ... but the first one is my fave).

Usually will carve a couple and atleast one gets tossed away cause well i suck at carving pumpkins !

Mostly get candy bars , and anything i see candy wise that is odd and different with a halloween look to it.

I sit home and watch scary movies , used to pass out candy but now the kids have a designated area at a little park where they go to trick or treat to keep em off the streets , i think its sucks a** and kills tradition , but i guess its safer.

if i had a halloween costume party to attend i would def rock the "Bob Ross" costume !

I like the Halloween movies originals and the new rob zombie ones also , and i always get a zombie movie or two !

 If we can find some decent pumpkins, we will carve three, both kids carve one, and I get the third, which is always a masterpiece 

We buy the mini chocolate bars, rockets, candy corn, and sour gums.  I put together packages for the kids in our neighborhood.  The hell with this only hand out healthy f**king snacks, like apples and oranges.  This is HALLOWE'EN!!!! You only hand out candy and snacks that are enitrely BAD for the kids.

On the Saturday before Hallowe'en we participate in the Annual Gay Pride Dance and Show.  On Hallowe'en night, we dress up and my daughter still trick or treats (maybe) and my son and I hand out candy.  Our house/yard is already partially decorated.

I love all parts of Hallowe\en.

I still love the original Hallowe;en, as does my hubby, so we always watch it.  My kids and I love Rocky Horror Picture Show, having performed it last year, but we still watch itat least once a season.  Tomorrow will be the first time we watch it.

I usually go to a kegger + costume party on the weekend before and get too drunk to remember what happened
#10 | 917 days ago

1. Haven't carved a pumpkin since my daughter was about 12
2. KitKat, Twix, Twizzlers - things I like since I'm not going to be home for Trick or Treat.
3. Halloween weekend - bar/party. During trick or trick I'm usually at my bro-in-laws house drinking and handing out candy while my daughter and her mom and aunt take all the little kids trick or treating. I'm not sure about this year, since my daughter will still be at Ft. Leonard Wood.
4. Raiding the candy from the kids my daughter takes trick or treating.

As much as I would like carve a pumpkin, I just dont have the artistic ability to do so. I leave it up to the kids to decimate a pumpkin to put out in front of the house.

We dont get many kids out where we live so we buy the kind we each like and if we don't get any visitors it a win for each of us. Its not like we live out in the sticks and you have to take a boat to get there, its just that we don't live in a hoity toity neighborhood and for some reason the morons around here seem to think visiting those neighborhoods will get you better handouts. I heard that from a coworker and thought 'what are they handing out gold coins and hams in these places'?

This year we will probably take the kids out trick or treating then go home. ..There is a costume party the weekend before so i'll be going as  and Mrs. mojo already has this one


i like just about everything about Halloween and especially when the brown nosers bring in all the "leftover" candy. Funny how it last for like two weeks; how much fuggin candy did you buy and who did you think was coming by?

My favorite flick is Halloween and just about all the sequals. Of course when i was younger i also liked those sorority slasher/B movie flicks because they always had the gratuitous boobie shots right before they had to run nekked from the killer, then of course they die some horroible death. Did you ever notice it is always the babes with the big boobs that gets wacked.

1) I don't carve pumpkins, but Blue Moon has a pretty good pumpkin ale I like to jump on this time of year. Does that count?
2) I usually will give the Hersheys assorted minature candy bars away, well, some of them. They have a hard time prying those little Mr. Goodbars from my fingers.
3 and 4) I usually help in a festival thing I started doing when my daughters were young. I make about 6 or 7 different kinds of balloon animals, I set up a table at the festitval, and make them for three hours. It is amazing the size of a snot bubble a kid can blow while you are making a pink giraffe or blue weiner dog or red sword or a whilte rabbit...
5) Sometimes I do and sometimes I don't. My beard is growing out right now and I am apparently going around as my dad lately.
6) I like a ton of them but I still enjoy the Charlie Brown great pumpkin one pretty close to the most.

If you really want to impress those kids, you'll make animals out of the snot bubbles.

I'm kind of a nerd when it comes to all the hub-bub, but with two of my kids celebrating birthdays really nearby (daughter 28th, son 30th) I have little choice in the matter. So I try to give the kiddos homemade popcorn balls or fruit (read: nerd), and we either go to see a scary movie or stay in and watch them all night.

Not sure how well I can tie those while wearing surgecal gloves, the bubbles seem to last longer than the ballons, though.

So do I. I'm one of those "one for you, one for me" parents. So it's either fruit or booze for the babies.

I love Halloween, and the kids make it so much fun. The kids each get to carve thier own pumpkin, except the 3-yr-old who needs help. We go trick-or-treating until late, until we get so tired we can barely keep going, and I've picked all the Kit Kats our of thier bags. Then we head home, and I check all the candy out before giving them the 'green light'. We then all curl up and throw a movie in, nothing too scary, usually like Scooby Doo or something for the kids (I think this year 'Spooky Buddies' will be on the agenda). It's always a fun time for us.
