    :witch:What is everyone doing this year? Normally I'd hit pub crawl, or some huge house bash, but this year I've decided to throw a little gathering for my more subdued friends.
    What about all you guys? Whats the plan?:witch:

    Same here- normally we'de be celebrating it with a bang but this year we are taking it easy and taking/forcing the kids to go trick-or-treating. I couldn't get my son to go last year. I was like " Hey - there's free candy out there and someone else is getting it!" but he wouldnt budge. I will probably spend the evening scaring the pants off the little punks who come knocking on my door and then bed as I am old and oh so pregnoid!

    We're throwing a Dia De Los Meurtos (Day of the Dead) dinner party for about 12 friends on Friday. It's kind of a three day thing for us - Halloween on friday, the children's day of the dead (we celebrate it now because of the m/c) on sat, and the day of the dead proper on sunday (also our wedding anniversary).

    It's my favourite time of the year!

    I forget how North American this holiday can be. As a money making holiday, it is second only to Christmas here. I used to work in costuming, And that week before Halloween was way more stressful than any Week before Christmas. No kidding! Its everywhere!

    hiding in my house! There are fire walkers down town and laods of stuff happening but you dare go out in case someone bottles you or starts a fight. I may go and sit on the beach with OH and watch the fire works if i can manage a walk to the end of the road as i am totally lazy now a days.

    Handing out candy to the kids! My husband doesn't like Halloween (mostly because in our old house we had a buncha too-old kids coming by at like 10 pm to trick-or-treat) but I have convinced him to decorate a pumpkin with me and hand out candy.
