We set at home waiting for the trick or treaters. I love to see the kids dressed up.
Most of the kids around here go to partys instead of trick or treating though.

in 2002 I worked at Busch Garden's Howl-O-Scream as a slider. We were given heavy shin pads, knee pads, and steel toed boots. our job was to hide in the bushes and when people passed by we ran out, dropped to our knees and slid by them at about 40 MPH screaming at the top of our lungs!!! hehehe
My team was legendary, and I was dubbed the slider with the paintball mask!!!
No kidding, they pay you good to do this night after night, and if it wasn't for my full time job I'd still be doing it.
Here's a pic of me in costume.

Oh yeah, the special effects goddess Kristeen gave me a split throat for good measure. Nothing like a ton of blood down the front of you for that added "special" touch! ;D

The costumes are all made by the costume dept at Busch gardens, and Kristeen was a professional special effects make-up artist Busch Gardens hired to do make-up for a zone called Grisly gardens... She told me her last job (before HOS) was doing make-up for 3 seasons of Babylon 5 (the GREATEST Sci-FI series ever done).
And I could write pages of stories about the people we scared... lol! I still can't believe they pay you for having that much fun! I'd have done it for free!

I don't celebrate Halloween. I find it annoying when Europeans celebrate it. We have our own traditions. It's fun for the kids but I like that there's some things that are special to America.

I believe the origins of halloween trace back to druidic rituals in dark ages england when they'd go around collecting human sacrifices. (they weren't much on candy.)

Now it's a holiday for adults to get drunk in silly costumes and children to solicit candy that parents have to check for tampering when they could go into walmart nov. 1st and buy bags of the stuff for 50% off.

I was a ritual to remember those that all had passed on, and they believed that the spirits would come and visit the people. It was also the Scottish that believed it. But there are so many origins of different things for Hallowe'en.
