Just so we don't have fortyseven different threads open up for all of Hex's weird goat sacrifice days.

You guys have any holiday plans coming up?

I have a HUGE bucket of candy to hand out tonight, and a box of Halloween themed Cheetos too! I'll post pictures when I can. I don't know how i'm going to dress though. I wasn't able to afford a new costume this year :( but I have some good ones from previous years.

-Female Edward Scissorhands
-and a bloody surgeon. I was this in the haunted house I was in on saturday. My boyfriend did it last year, and he wanted me to be in it with him this year. He got his own room and dressed as a psych patient. He did amazing! I get anxiety around people really bad, so I was more of a prop. I was all bloodied up and laid on the floor, slowly trying to crawl away.

In all seriousness I would love to celebrate Halloween in some way but I'm going to be on that company boat trip so chances for that are nigh.

At least I managed to get this done in time: http://www.screwattack.com/news/month-fr...-halloween

I hate Halloween. I hate kids coming to my door, and I hate sharing my sweets.

I love Halloween. The rest of this I agree with. Now give me your sweets.

But... But... if you move to the country, you never have to deal with trick or treaters! And there are many other advantages!
But, I'll avoid all festivities again and save myself from the headache.
I stream occasionally...

*This is Squad Alpha over, proceeding to target.

"Alright Alpha, stay cautious, we've heard reports of hostile activity near this house,"

*Copy that.

"Alright men, its time we begin Operation Trick-Or-Treat,"

Hallowe'en here in France was fairly quiet. People know about it, but still few in my area practice it. We had two groups of kids come by in total. Lots of surplus sweets :)

Today is more important for us. On the 1st of November, we go round various cemetaries to say hi to our departed relatives and place nice bouquets of chrysathemums everywhere.
That's where we're going now. Photos to come, if I don't forget.

This is my favorite Holiday. Nov 1 is Half Off Candy day. The local CVS will have left over candy and since they want to get rid of it to stock up on X-Mas stuff, it will be half off.

I love Halloween! I love seeing all the kids in their costumes, all excited with their trick-or-treat buckets!

We had a shit ton of candy too :) (I was Lady Scissorhands. My hands weren't on in the photo.)

I love this day. I've never participated though (yet). Do you have drinks and picnics with your departed? Some cultures do.

If I remember rightly, the whole picnic thing is a hispanic tradition. We just go to the cemetaries, pay our respects to our family, and walk around listening to the older folk talk about who is where.
In one cemetary, there was a section for people who had died in hospital and hadn't been claimed. I felt sad, so stayed there for a while wondering about who these people were.

So many flowers though !
