My lights are lit, including the jack-o-lanterns in the side windows, and I've ended spooky season by watching the original 1978 "Halloween".

I used to watch the 1979 version of Dracula, with Frank Langella and Laurence Olivier, but I never got around to finding it on DVD.

Technically, both are correct.  Some feel that "lighted" is more correct...

I think I would write, "I lit the candle at sundown," but "The candle was lighted at sundown."

Anyway, one thing I might add to put paid to celebrating Halloween: The unsold candy goes on sale November 1.  :laugh:

(I needed a few things from the drugstore yesterday, and while I was there I picked up a bag of Reese's peanut butter cups and a bag of candy corn at half price.  ;D )

(It's funny. I never really cared much for candy corn, but this year I had a craving for it.  ??? )
