Poll: Are you dressing up for Halloween?

by Lee Koo (ADMIN) CNET staff/forum admin / October 28, 2011 9:34 AM PDT

Are you dressing up for Halloween?

-- Yes. (What are you going to be?)
-- No. (Why not?)
-- Undecided.
-- What's this Halloween you speak of?

Please don't say "No" giving the excuse that you are too old for it. Silly

Happy Halloween everyone!

<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.

Halloween is big here in Norway. My 9yo Abigail thinks it ranks up there along with x-mas & her birthday. Grin

My youngest was born within a couple weeks of Halloween so the two have merged for him!

Any candy I buy
by JP Bill / October 28, 2011 8:43 PM PDT

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.

My Halloween
by milomilo / October 28, 2011 7:59 PM PDT

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!)

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.
