Your Halloween Plans? Answered

So, what are your Halloween plans? Are you going to a party? Going trick or treating, or just going to stay home and watch Demons 2?

This year, I'm not going to do much. Just paint my face white, and put on black lipstick and eyeliner while walking around the neighborhood. (Okay, I may go to some houses for candy =P)

Hmm... Halloween...
Trick out the house of course.

My friends and I are planning on going trick or treating, even though people would probably consider us to be too old...  Oh well, you have to have SOME fun on halloween :) If we didn't do that I'm sure we'd do something else to get the cops called, and we don't want that to happen...Again...

...people would probably consider us to be too old...

Nah!  We get trick-or-treaters of many ages, from toddlers (I'm not counting their adult chaperones) all the way up to early twenties.

The latter are usually gaggles of girls dressed St Trinians-style.

Normally we go all out and pass out candy decorate, etc. I just can't get into it this year, too much going on, so we're going to a party, I'm going as Charlie brown's ghost costume.

My plans for halloween are to boycott Halloween.  Halloween blows, and modern-day Halloween isn't even remotely close to the spirit of Halloween in Celtic times.

In Celtic times, Halloween was a ritual to scare away evil spirits.  Now it's just a way for greedy corporate executives to steal money from little children.

In Celtic times, Hallowe'en didn't exist.

"Hallowe'en" is a shortened form of "All-hallow's evening", the evening before "All Saints" ("All-hallow's"), the day of the church calender set aside to honour all the saints at once, known and unknown.

You might be thinking of Samhain, a Celtic festival that coincides roughly with Hallowe'en, but was mainly a form of harvest festival (which I guess is why pumpkins play such a prominent role in the modern celebrations).

Oh, I mistook it for something else, this was what I was taught in school, and I forgot what it was REALLY called.

It is "half term" in the UK - school's out for a week,

Highlights of the week start on Friday - trip round a brewery in the morning, then invited to a party in the evening (both of which should end up as instructables).

Saturday, we're staying in, with pumpkin lights in the window, and a bucket of sweets behind the door.
