For a while, we had themed Halloween parties for him and his friends, but even that has passed and now, we just go out for dinner.
I know Kim made those really cute cupcakes for tonight. Anyone else doing any themed baking or dinners for All Hallowed Eve?
Practice. Do it over. Get it right.
Mostly, I want people to be as happy eating my food as I am cooking it.

and going round local houses where they were invited in to entertain
the householders by reciting a peom, telling a joke or even singing a song.
In some houses people would set up some games like bobbing for apples
and such like.
It was quite a quaint and civilized time where everyone enjoyed themselves
eating toffee apples and sweets even accquiring some some loose change
for the best costumes or entertainers. All done with the minimum of fuss
The UK has now sadly adopted 'Trick or Treating' (no guesses of the country
of origin necessary) when kids that you've never clapped your eyes on
come to your door yelling 'trick or treat' expending handfuls of candy,
chocolate and money.
If you do not answer the door or if the goodies handed over are not to the little darlings taste,
the front of your house is pelted with eggs and flour if you're lucky other stuff like gloss paint if you're unlucky.
The net result is that the traditional values have been lost in favour of levels of commercially
driven greed 2nd only to Christmas and it's related abominations.
The majority of the decent population in the UK now hate this 'festival' with a passion
and distance themselves from it.
To give you a further flavour of the way this event is going,
our local police have given warnings to householders not to react to any acts of vandalism
as they will be arrested for child harrassment.
We thank you.

Sad reflection on today's society when you can't give out homemade treats.
I suppose it's down to paranoia and little Johnny's 120 or so allergies

I just realized I don't have anything for Steve to pass out to the little spooks tonight. (I'll be at work) I guess I'd better make a run to the store. We have a few neighborhood kids, and a few kids who are too old to be out T or T-ing. If they're taller than me, I always ask them, "aren't you too old for this?" They usually say, "yes, Ma'am" and hold out their bag.
I have so many responses to this it would make your bag spin
