I won't dress up as I usually don't do that anymore, but I will probably hand out candy and watch "Its the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown" and "Mad Monster Party" on DVD.

I added a fog machine to my Halloween room.

It does add more spookiness to it.

Here is a photo...

Now that the children in my neighborhood are all grown up and gone I get no more trick or treaters on Halloween. It's sad because I loved handing out candy and seeing some really interesting costumes. I remember 1 year when a little boy came to my door dressed as Wilson from Home Improvement. His costume was a picket fence covering half of his face and a fishing hat. It was hysterical! How I miss all of those kids!By the time that trick or treating was about done at 8 PM that's when the teen boys would show up. I always gave them all of my left over candy. They loved me! They were always very polite and I loved hearing their low teen voices at the door!
Now days on Halloween night I pop in "The Haunted History Of Halloween"dvd(produced by the History channel). I still decorate my home for Halloween too.

I won't be dressing up. Usually here in NYC the parade and crowds can get so crazy I pass on it. But this year I may watch it - some of the costumes are really a hoot - some cute ones I remember from past years, teams of people dressed as Emelda's shoes, McDonfald's French fries. And that couple dressed as Albert Einstein and the plutonium bomb. Who would pause and bow to each other. Some really clever and outrageously good costumes!

I'm afraid this is one American tradition from which I find difficulty in deriving the remotest source of pleasure. I suppose one cannot begrudge children dressing up in costumes and having parties where youngsters indulge in cinder toffee and candy apples(though Agatha Christie's Hallowe'en Party springs all too readily to mind),yet my own personal anecdotes are those of frightened seniors afraid to show any chink of light in their homes reminiscent of their experiences during the London Blitz,and their rubbish bins overturned should they not concede to the blackmail of offering chocolate titbits to mollify the hardened adolescent in what may be among most an innocent outing to partake in a modicum of fun,so lacking in the urban jungle society has now become.

I would only ask that participants in this annual celebration of the supernatural manifest a modicum of respect and restraint for this Celtic festival with Pagan roots to remain a benevolent experience for all concerned.

Hey, don't be a party-pooper! For many, it's a very fun holiday. In fact, I shiver at the thought of what it would be like if there was no Halloween.

Think of it this way... many people (including myself) set up elaborate displays of which can take weeks to complete and hand out candy for free. When you think of it, it's a very generous holiday. And, again, fun!

Let's keep the Halloween "spirit" alive!

I've already practiced the face make up that I'm doing. Since Halloween falls on a Wednesday this year, I'm going to school like this too. Putting temporary black dye in my hair, which is actually a lot shorter now, so that part will be pretty easy.

If you were in the same school district I went to school in you'd be sent home (South Redford in Redford, Michigan). Halloween was BANNED in the schools after an Incident that happened during Homecoming in 1975. Since Homecoming was scheduled for the weekend before : Halloween the theme for the homecoming was "Haunted Homecoming" and the event began with a parade that went three miles to the school. The parade began at the corner of Inkster Road and West Chicago Road, and went east to Beech Daly Road, there, the parade went north for 1 1/2 miles until it went to Glendale road, which led a half-mile to the school.

The fun began at the corner of W. Chicago and Beech Daly. A Funeral Procession was heading north on Beech Daly when it encountered the roadblock. The Junior Float (A Cemetery) was turning the corner. The Police Officer, seeing this and the Procession, thought they were part of the parade and let them in! (If an entry, such as a float got delayed from making the beginning of the parade they were instructed to go to the corner of W. Chicago and Beech Daly, where the Officer would let them in). Those who watched the parade from that point on CHEERED LOUDLY at the Procession as it passed by. My thought was some students had a connection with a Funeral Home and arranged to borrow a Hearse and some Funeral Flags to stage a "Mock" Procession, with the Cemetery Float in front of it it fit in so beautifully. Little did we know.

After the Parade came the Football Game. Since this was Homecoming the Halftime Show featured all of the elements of the parade. As each unit passed by we were ordered to cheer, the one that got the loudest cheer got the award. When the Procession failed to appear people began questioning what happened to it. That's when it became apparent that this was not a Mock Procession staged by some students, it was THE REAL DEAL. The Participants of the Procession weren't students, they were mourners. To this day I have no idea who the deceased was. Was he or she young or old? Did they die unexpectedly, or were they battling a long disease? Heaven only knows.

Needless to say the School Administration was PSSED OFF! . Halloween-Themed Events were BANNED for any School Festival.

As for the Football Game, Never mind for whom the bell tolls, the final score was Livonia Franklin - 45, South Redford Thurston High School - 3

Great makeup Miss Lisa! When I was in school I would always wear a Halloween shirt.

I've decorated my den like I do every year. Nothing as awesome Fleet's Halloween room. Just cutesy pumpkins and black cats. I would totally dress up if I had a party to go to.
