I heard of a funny costume over the radio just yesterday. The man was saying to wrap yourself in duct tape with the sticky part out and roll around in fresh cut grass.

And you'll be an instant Chia Pet. lol!!!

I was thinking about starting this topic in a few days when it grew closer to Halloween. ^^

Anybody who plays WolfGame will have seen mine already. If you aren't a player, then I'll give you 3 guesses. wink5

hehe lol yes, i'll go around my neighbours houses demanding candy? lach2

I mean i would have loved it as a kid. Ah well.

It's getting a bit popular here, but more with the decorations and such. there is no trick or treating here.

we have something else "st. maarten", then children go around with lanterns and singing, and getting candy. That's only in northern part of the country and I missed that too. Why do i always miss out on the free candy things lach2

Halloween's so confusing. Only in the last two or three years have kids started going around trick or treating where I live, and we always have to turn them away because nobody in my family knows when Halloween actually is (and we don't eat much junk food in our house)! It's not advertised here at all on the news...

pasQuale, we also have 'drie koningen' (three kings?) on 6 January (I believe it was on 6 January, not sure about that) We dressed like kings or queens or something like that and then we went around houses asking for candy and/or money. The money we got was for a good aim and the candy we could keep ourselves ^^

it only took off over here, because of all the american TV programmes.
years ago it's used to be just a night for private parties... but now we have trick or treating (which is a pain)

Halloween is pretty confused where I live too.
Most people don't even know the exact date, and some confuse it with another holliday called "all saints' day" which is sometime between the last week of october or the first week of november, so kids come by my house asking for candy every day for like 2 weeks. Most of them don't even wear costumes.

Same here, some kids in Poland try to trick or treat, (too much TV tounge2), but its still not to popular here. But i think American movies will make they job wink5 (no offense please smile ). We have "All saints day" too. Its a day free of job's and school (thank god), and usualy most people go o the cementary, "visit" theyre family. I think its a great day.

to many crack houses, whore houses, gang houses, and far to many meth labs for anybody to send their kids out trick or treating anymore... or at least thats what everyone thinks of their neighbors... year before last i bought a big bowl of candy to hand out, had the vampire teeth, and a nicely carved jack-o-lantern mischieveous illuminating my front porch...
nobody came! not a single soul, so i'm not doing such things any longer.
a few local churches will have a *trunk or treat* were all the young kids dress up and go from car to car in a church parking lot, everyone dresses up.. decorates there car trunks.
there is also a very large number of hispanic imigrants (rate of growth is arround 134%) in my area, so the "day of the dead" as i believe it is called is gaining popularity.

personally, i'll pop in a set of vampire fangs and goto work, just like any other day. (going to work that is, not the fangs! ;o)

In Swedish, easter is traditionally the time when kids go around collecting candy.
On this milder version of halloween, instead of dressing up as anything and go trick or treating, you dress like some kind of witch called "påskkärring" (litterally easter-***), draw crappy "Happy Easter" cards and go to peoples' houses and trade them for candy.
With the confusion of halloween in recent years, some kids have started doing this in october/november too.
