    We do decorate our shop window for Halloween, kids go trick n treating and we normally have a pumkin outside at home. It is now getting more common in the Uk than it use to be.

    I'm usually working Halloween--it's EOM (end-of-month to all the non-accounting people of the world!). So I don't really do anything.

    We used to decorate a bit and my mother loved handing out candy to the little ones. It's usually quite nice out that time of year (typically 80 to 100 degrees in the early evening), and she used to sit outside the garage and chat and hand out candy. It was a social event for her. :)

    We don't decorate at all and I've not seen a single house around our way that does decorate! I guess Halloween isn't a big occasion around here.

    We do get quite a lot of kids coming to the door for their treats and DH took it into his head a couple of years back to try and give the kids a fright as he opened the door. This has gone down with mixed results

    So, he puts his Dracula teeth in swings open the door really quick to a group of kids and shouts RAAAAHH at the top of his voice. The boy shouts back "Na na, ya didn't scare me." Then the little girl dressed as a witch says quietly "you scared me and I've just peed my pants."

    The year before he does the same thing to the Avon lady and I haven't seen her since

    ROFL, too funny. We go all out decorating for fall and Halloween, why I don't know because we live on a very steep hill and have never gotten any trick or treaters! We use pumpkins and huge pots of mums, cornstalks and special flags, cobwebs and grave stones, skeletons and witches and so on....

    It's not REALLY that big here to be honest. But I love decorating and I'm going to do it this year lol..
    It's Aaron's birthday on the 30th too so we normally have a few friends round anyway :)

    Just do pumpkins, spider webs (shivers), skeletons and just other decorative bits inside too :) I love it lol xx

    Nation to Nation, All the world must come together. Face the problems that we see, then maybe somehow we can work it out.
    I asked my neighbour for a favour she said later. What has come of all the people have we lost love of what its about?
    I have to find my piece cos noone seems to let me be. False prophets, cry of doom, what are the posibilities?
    I told my brother there'll be problems times and tears for fears. We must live each day like its the last.


    Michael, u r my life. I love u so much.

    Can I hire your DH--I have a couple of bill collectors I'd like frightened away!...Then maybe my monster-in-law...

    Great story! (Poor little witch.)
    Love isn't about finding someone you can live with.
    It's about finding someone you can share a lifetime with.
