I don't really get into that much. I have a witch for the front door and that's about it.

I love Halloween!! There was a time back in 2002,03,04,05 that I got so much into halloween and the fall season I got depressed when It was over,I liked it even more than christmas...I decorated my house and yard(still do) but around 2006 I really started to get into all the Holidays(thanksgiving,Christmas) I love horror movies,you name it I probably have on dvd. I think I love it so much because as a kid My mom never let us kids participate in anything to do with Halloween. So when i grew up I guess I over compensate I dunno.lol I have orange lights, fiber optic pumpkins I get at the cracker barrel restuarant...and I love handing out candy while watching horror movies...I even take 2 weeks off the end of october to take time off and enjoy the Fall!!! It's just a magical time of year that kicks off the Holidays as far as I am conscerned!!

I am meh about Halloween. I like it because I'm really in the spirit, I love weather, and I like harvest decor, but I really hate the whole trick-or-treating thing. I wish I could just buy the kids candy and call it a day, ha!

When we lived in town we "did" Halloween up right! We had between 80 & 125 trick-or-treaters, depending on the year. We lived there for 6 years & loved every Halloween there. DH decorated the porch with pumpkin, ghost, & Frankenstein lights, spider webs, flying bat, luminary Halloween bags on the lawn, a graveyard in the yard, ghosts hanging up, Halloween cartoons playing on the porch. Both sets of our parents would come over for homemade chili & sandwich & we'd just hang out for a couple of hours & hand out candy. Loved it! I think we went overboard because neither one of us had trick-or-treaters where we lived growing up.

When we moved to our home now (where DH grew up), we've had one trick-or-treater, not counting neice & nephew who came one year. Now that we have DD, we take her to Halloween in the City. The downtown businesses & churches set up tables with candy and you just walk the streets. The only house we go to is DH's great-aunt, who keeps DD after school.

In '11, I took DD to my parent's house after school so they could see her in costume (20 minutes from our house). We surprised DH's parents & took DD to see them after going to Halloween in the City (45 minutes from our house.) In their subdivision, they won't let you drive in unless you have proof that you live there. The volunteer fire department blocks the entrance. Everyone has to park on the side of the highway & walk in to the subdivision. They have hundreds of trick-or-treaters. They complain about it every year, but DH & I would love it!! We know a guy who is in the fire department & he let us drive in & park at their house.

DD has never gone door-to-door trick-or-treating. I never liked going door-to-door as a kid, so I don't think she's missing anything. I bought two costumes at consignment last year for DD to wear. She wore the Supergirl costume last year, but I'm afraid the '50's poodle skirt outfit will be too little by this Halloween. I'm sure with her big imagination, she'll come up with something good!

We love Halloween here. There are tons of trick or treaters, and the kids love to dress up. As my kids have gotten older, Halloween has become a favorite!

Halloween is our #2 Holiday. We decorate the house almost as much as we do for christmas. Usually, it will take me about a week to get all the decorations up and lit, tested and then on halloween night, I have bats flying around outside, lights lit in the yard, bushes, on the house, fog machines going, scary music/ sounds blarring and about 30 pounds of candy in a witches cauldren waiting for all the kiddies to stop by.

We have people making special trips just to see the house...Can't wait....

And It's tradition, we must watch "It's The Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown", every year....

I love Halloween, but don't decorate for it per se. I decorate more for fall. I love country decor, so I decorate for fall and have a lot of scarecrows and that type of decor. I really get into the holiday though and do a lot with my kids though. Halloween is my second favorite holiday and fall is my favorite. I can't wait!

Yeah, I like halloween more because of the season than Halloween itself. I do like me some horror movies, though!

Bellville gets slammed with kids from all over the county on Halloween because it's (trying to be as modest as possible here) THE NICEST COMMUNITY AROUND!

I'm all for making Halloween a National Holiday and that way we could have the day off and paid for it as well...
