So I just watched scary movies and gave out candy.

I finally got to see the Roger Corman/Vincent Price collaboration The Pit and the Pendulum. I didn't find it at all scary, but I'm glad I finally got to see it. I understand the films Corman made with Price are considered "classics" of their type.

Oh, and I ate candy. ...  ;D

Ack! Normally I don't post pics of my kids, but I had wanted to post one of my son in Halloween costume. Guess who forgot to take a photo? :laugh:
Maybe I can get him to throw over the costume once more.

We had friends over for a long night of card games and had a great time! :)
Thankfully, we always have the day off after Halloween for All Saint's Day.

Halloween was disappointingly quiet at my door. Exactly one pair of children came trick or treating.

Oh well, we had fun anyway. I made a non-alcoholic drik which I called Toad's blood and Witch's wee-wee, complete with frozen flies, worms and a little bat sitting on the glass. Kerstin brought sweet fingers and pumpkin soup and we also had spider-wieners. ;D

What a lovely evening you seems to have had Chrissi. Thank you for sharing. What a bummer with the photo, perhaps next year, we will see you in costume.  :)

I doubt you will ever see me in a Halloween costume. :laugh:

But lookeee here, my son put on the costume again. I guess some people will recognize the mask. ;D




And we put the hood on Tina :laugh:




Cheers!

LOL!

For being a non-American, you really go a long way to celebrate a real Halloween, Chrissi!   ;D

I didn't dress up, but Naylan did - here he is as a bat waiting for Guisers (aka Trick or Treaters) to arrive..

I guess Halloween is another form of American imperialism.  ;)  Like McDonald's and KFC.  ;D

But the little ones look adorable in their costumes, and Chrissi's party drink looks scarily yummy!  :D

Heh, the modern Halloween, is certainly very American.. but it originated in the UK! Robert Burns even wrote a poem about it!

As a child, I called it guising..

It's fun to see other countries celebrating Halloween.  ;D  It's become quite a party Holiday here, and next year it is on a Friday night.

;D
