Happy Hallowe'en! Answered

Hallowe'en has started in the UK, and, as the night progresses, the trick-or-treaters are getting older and and uglier - around dusk, we get the fairies and wizards who need their parents to reach the doorbell, as it gets later, we get the small gangs of friends, later it will be the teens who are pretending they are trick-or-treating ironically, but really they like the candy just as much...

A new twist this year - our candy has small sticky rubber rats and spiders mixed in, or you might get a plastic skull-ring around the stick of a lollypop.

As the darkness reaches your part of the globe, tell us; what's the best or weirdest costume you've had to your door this year? 

Got to go, there's the doorbell again!


LOL... I love the photo! I really hope you are dressed up like that when you answer the door. ;-P

Haha, no, that was my costume for the school disco.

It's enough to be waiting behind the door and open it as soon as they pull the string of skeletons tied to the knocker...

(Actually, the kids don't seemed phased by that, it's the parents behind them that jump.)

I had an algebra teacher that looked a lot like this

Goggles? For algebra?

(He must have been s wicked shot with the chalk!)

minus the goggles....he normally had that expression on his face though ;-)

He probably would have looked better as a chemistry teacher though LOL

So much for Halloween....

Its only 6:30 am here on November 1st and I've already got THREE em@ils about CHRISTMAS shopping!!!!!


We don't "do" Christmas until the last family birthday is past (Dec 1st), but one local supermarket has been selling Christmas decorations and "seasonal" foods since the beginning if September!

good grief... I always dread the first Christmas commercial. Once you've seen it (or heard it), expect it to come on 750 more times. :-\

Yep, late Aug. we saw the Fall/hallowe'en stuff come out, and a day or so later some of the Xmas stuff.
