To treat Halloween Like Christmas

Here's a suggestion for all the retail outlets in North America. Just like there is a Santa in every mall at Christmas ,why not a Dracula doing the same for Halloween?The little ones could sit on the edge of his coffin while he rises to give them a friendly peck on the neck and his aides[wearing cute ghoul costumes] could direct the traffic and pass out treats. While this idea sounds sick,just remember that Santa is also a myth and has been used by business sucessfully for the last 50 years.

Yeah, 'cause Halloween isn't commercialised enough already.

Don't mind me,as I'm tottering on the brink of insanity most of the time I have a great slogan for The Red Cross for the season" Don't Waste That Blood,Save Some For Us" along with a photo of a vampire carelessly dropping his victim.

It's one of the reasons I always read your posts, Missile! One of your most endearing qualities!

Ooooh, can I be Dracula? Scaring the **** out of kids just happens to be a hobby of mine.

To be honest, Hallowed Eve has more spiritual meaning for me personally than Christmas, but I go with the flow and jump on the Yule bandwagon just cuz I like the fuss and fanfare.

Haven't you seen How the Grinch Stole Christmas?...He tried........it doesn't work. .........HALLOWEEN is great,.........if you do it right it can be very spiritual,...........and the kiddies love it!!

indeed........and the level of spirit.....uality (attained) is directly related to the spirits in the halloween punch.

My favourite thing about Halloween is watching the kids get older and older as the evening wears on. I especially liked the drunk teenagers last year...their friends were sitting in a car on the street making sure that they fulfilled their dare.

I just enjoy the smashed pumpkins all over the streets.The only good pumpkin is in a pie.

Christmas is supposed to be the Christian holiday,so why not Halloween for the rest of us?I don't celebrate either one,just buy stuff for the appropriate people

My daughter is officially to old to go trick or treating this year.

Which means I can either hand out candy to obnoxious kids or cute kids with obnoxious parents or hide out with the lights off..........

I think I'll hide out with a good movie on the couch with the hubby and ignore the world at large

You'll have to check the maritimes then Rev. Until I moved here I have never seen anyone decorate their house with decorations and lights on halloween. They use as many lights on the house as they do on christmas, except they're orange.

I don't get it, after much thought I've chalked it down to your typical neighbourly rivalry, mixed in with waaay too much time on their hands. Just to dig up a stereotype, it's may also seem to be a way to keep occupied when you're at home collecting pogey.

My extent of decorating on halloween will maybe be your typical pumpkin and a black light replacing the porch light. I might even do something freaky with my carvings but that remains to be seen.

You mean there's an age limit?! I can't go out this year?!!

I can still get away with it if I wear a mask, a lot of 11 year olds are as tall as I am

Just try to do my street before 8 4 hours of standing downstairs passing out treats is about all I can stand.Age doesn't matter to me,as long as the treats hold out & this year, it's pkgs of hot chocolate and the small candy bars.

Yeah, we have those orange lights here to. I've seen some folks really get into the spirit of Halloween. Some set up a graveyard or cemetary out of their front yards (just for Halloween of course) with tombstones, crucifixes ...etc)
