no real reason, just not interested in the holiday beyond handing out candy to kids at the door.
I believe it is only americans that love dressing up
<span id="INSERTION_MARKER">I believe it is only Americans who dress up for everything, have different shirts for everything etc. To me it is just another marketing gimmick to get people to buy more.<span id="INSERTION_MARKER">
<span id="INSERTION_MARKER">I personally dont have the slightest interest in Halloween and certainly would not dress up for it. Yes I am too old for it. I have been too old for it since I was about 12 years old.
No, it's not only the Americans:
Halloween is big here in Norway. My 9yo Abigail thinks it ranks up there along with x-mas & her birthday.
No, it's not only the Americans
My youngest was born within a couple weeks of Halloween so the two have merged for him!
Halloween Dress Up
I'm a vendor @ a local flea market, and I'm going to be a demented "Batty" Grandmother!!!!!!! Shirt says "You can't scare me, I'm a grandmother", I have big horn type bat ears, purple hair, nails with bat and spider jewelry. You never get "too" old for fun!!!
Word on the street is
Lady Gaga doesn't know what to wear for Halloween.
Myself...I'll be giving out candy at the door
IF the kids get through the razor wire and past the guard dogs
So you have bought candy??
and are too stingy to part with it?
May your belly rumble and your teeth rot.
Any candy I buy
I end up eating it...I haven't had a kid at the door in 3 years. They don't hang around the area...too far between houses.
Not buying any this year. I don't want the temptation sitting there.
Halloween dress up
NO! But my great grand kids are.
No.I'm not, because...
...I'm an old goth, and can just dress as myself. OK, maybe I'll add a little corpse makeup for the occassion; haven't decided yet.
Not dressing up but this is interesting so
welcome to the new posters here in SE who seem to have been attracted to this topic.
we will see a whole lot more.
Lee kindly added this to his "Community Newsletter" this week.
I see the overall thinking is a resounding "No!";
Any candy I have is mine, No-one elses!
Halloween is now big in UK too. All cheapo shops full of it. I am going as a road accident victim, with clothes from a charity shop, ripped and soiled by me, fake blood and bruising faked by eye shadow. Very tasteless, in British fashion.
Milo (have a good time!)
Nope. Have to work til 9.
To quote Charles Dickens...
Just another commercial racket.
I beg to differ...
Halloween - or Samhain - is an age old European pagan festival. It was imported to the U.S., where it was somehow mixed up with the Mexican 'Dia de los Muertos' and commercialized. It was then exported back to Europe. In Norway, we celebrate Halloween, but the American commercialism is toned down. OK, so we buy more candy on Halloween, and maybe a little more weird makeup, but the effect on the economy is nil.
