HalloweenSpooks hover here! This merry section of the forum is dedicated to talking about our ideas, plans, thoughts and observations of a great day of Fall that just happens to lead right into the Christmas season.
No real plans yet. On Saturday or Sunday we will carve our pumpkins and maybe make caramel apples. We go over my Mom's for pizza Halloween night... my best friend and her Family come over too. We take pics of the kids dressed up and then go trick or treating!

I always take the last 2 weeks of October off to go leaf peeping around North Carolina and Virginia. I always am home by the 30th though,and we have literally hundreds of trick or treators on my street,mostly from the local kids but also the kids that live out in the sticks come to our Neighborhood because we are the closest one to them I guess..so it is so much fun buying the bags of candy and setting things up in the house for the kids,watching scary movies all day then as it gets dark I always just stand in our doorway and hand out the candy for a few hours.It always falls around the Ga/FL football game so I always have my Gabulldog shirt on and always gets asked by the parents "who is winning the game" ahh I can't wait!

Oh yes, we have plans! We're 'those nuts down the street' that go all out decorating the house and yard for Halloween. We have a cemetery in the yard, and ghosts in the windows,and skeletons, and all sorts of neat stuff. Our neighborhood is considered 'safe' for trick-or-treating, so we get all sorts of kids coming in from other neighborhoods. We get visits from four or five pickup trucks pulling big wagonloads of kids (wagons lit for Halloween, of course), plus all the walk-up kids from the area. We get 250-300 Trick-or-Treaters every Halloween, and we love it. If you haven't guessed, I'm one of those people whose parents took her for rides to 'see the decorations' when she was a kid. I always wanted to live in one of those houses that went all out decorating for the Holidays, and now I do!

I think it's just a teensy bit early for the Christmas flavours (hate to break it to you but not everybody is as nuts about the season as we are ) but not to fear, I am on the case and will report as soon as I have something to report!!!
