I celebrated with half a bag of Snickers and some soda. Go me.

I <3 that film.

I had to dress up for work, so I spent the entire afternoon/evening in the most ridiculous vampire costume I could find. I got free wine though, so it's not terribly bad.

Thanks,(to Taliesin, too). I'm a bit disappointed this year though. We made a point to go pick our own pumpkins from the supposedly best patch in the Twin City area paying a premium price, only to have them start to rot the day after I carve them. Usually they last at least two weeks. Of course, usually it's below freezing instead of in the 60's, but still. They looked terrible by Halloween night. :(

Sorry nobody came to your house. Our bell rung less then a dozen times and three of those times it was my own kids. You'll just have to eat all that candy yourself... or mail some to me. I can help. ;)

Almost all gone. We have never gotten a trick-or-treater, and with only 2 dozen houses on this 6 mile road, I doubt we ever will. Not enough volume.

And on that note, I need to poll the audience and perhaps prolong this discussion. In Oregon it seems that it is okay to go business-to-business begging for candy. It also seems that various neighborhoods organize their times of operation so that kids get more candy. Some places have Halloween from noon to 3 on Sunday, and some 5-8 on Wednesday.

Does this happen in more places, or does Oregon just suck?

Perhaps both are true. ;)

Or at least, I was going to say that, because it's hard to resist, but I am filled mostly with feelings of fondness for Oregon.

So true, Salmy. My mom had to spend a lifetime at the bank waiting for all the little kids to pass through and get candy. I just trick-or-treated traditionally, though. My block gets no trick-or-treaters, so all of the houses were like, "Take more handfuls. More! Please, we don't want it!"

I didn't want to disappoint them.

My friend and I got nine-and-a-half pounds of candy total. Why can't you people reap the benefits of this wonderful day? Oh, riiiiight. Man, I always forget how young I am.

Ditto. No one came to my house, so I ate the candy and watched Harry Potter with a friend.

This was the first year I didn't trick-or-treat. Unfortunately someone else at the video rental got to Nightmare Before Christmas before we did, so we watched Dawn of the Dead instead. The best part of the movie was the explanation why zombies were in a mall. "It's what they did in life. They don't know why they're here, they just are." We thought it described the vast majority of non-zombie shoppers. :P
