    We don’t do much for Halloween at home these days (we live too far from town to get trick or treaters), but last year I spent Halloween volunteering at a haunted house at a local historical attraction. I liked it that their haunted house was a lot more subtle than most – a lot of things were vaguely creepy, but only a few were really scary and none were gross just for the sake of being gross.

    It has long been a tradition for the kids from the senior class at my high school in Illinois to decorate the high school for halloween – with such items as toliets, outhouses and other such items. I believe that soon after I graduated (20 years ago) they finally ran out of outhouses. And now the just toliet paper the school. I am sure that it helps that our high school borders on the local cemetery….the joys of being from a small town in the middle of nowhwere Illinois….

    Wish we’d taken pictures last Halloween…my (now) 12-year-old son decided to be a record, with his face on the label…used up a bucket of black paint on a big circle of cardboard, and bungeed himself into it. It was far too heavy to wear for long (it was standing straight up!) but it looked like the older folks were happy that a kid even knew what a record was!

    I LOVE Halloween. It brings back lots of happy memories when I was a kid.Usually my cousins and I would dress up as ghosts and go treat or treat. We’d count all our goodies at Grandma’s house, see who got the most. Oh we didn’t have a lot of fancy things but we had love and that’s what mattered.

    The best Halloween was spent drunk at a church. No really.. one year we couldn’t decide which haunted house to go to, so we randomly picked one out of the paper, took down the address and set off. We’d been drinking for quite some time (though we had a DD!) so we knew whatever place we ended up at we would make memorable anyway. As we arrived it dawned on us that this was no ordinary Spookfest, this was a church. And to make things more interesting, it couldn’t be a bad one, the line to get in wrapped around the block. After 3 hours of waiting to get in, entertaining ourselves and others in line, we paid our $20 and the adventure began. The tour around the spectacle setup inside, in the multiple basements and even under a foundation or deck or something was a blast. Between being scared out of our minds at the smallest of things, and one member of our group being admonished by a “ghost” for pretending to do unsavory acts to an animatronic zombie dwarf, we’d never had more fun at Halloween. Unfortunately we could never remember where that haunted house was, and never found it again. 😦

      Sounds like a fun night. I love the horror houses and haunted hay-rides and all that. There are several around the tri-state area here and we try to hit them all … Portsmouth Jaycees usually has the best one every year.

    I always have to remember the Halloween when I was a kid we were having a prayer meeting at our house as it happened to be on a Wednesday night. Since we were expecting guests we had the outside lights on…..unknowingly inviting the trick or treaters. Two teenagers wearing masks, holding pillow cases were very shocked to be invited to join the prayer group. I just have to laugh when I think of how fast they got out of there. Poor kids.

    I have both of these albums, so I don’t have to be entered. But I just wanted to say that we’ll be at a Kathy Mattea show at the edge of nowhere Maine on Halloween night! I don’t find her particularly scarey, but I can’t think of a better way to spend it anyway.

      That’s a great way to spend Halloween Leeann, Hope you and Bill have a great time.

      I like your choice almost as much as mine, Patty will be performing at the Ram’s Head Tavern in Annapolis on Halloween night, and I have plans to attend. 🙂

    To be honest, I could live without Halloween. When I was 6 my sisters played a horrible prank of me. Oh, you really want to hear it? Well we were at my sister friends house, whom we were suppose to go trick or treating with, well I kept begging her to tell me what the trick part of trick or treat meant. Well finally she gave in and said she would tell me if I closed my eyes and opened my mouth. She said it would be either a trick or a treat and guess what I got. Yep the trick. My sis’s friends dog had pooped in the floor and my sister stuck some in my mouth! When I bit down, she said that is a trick. She says I threw up and was going to home to tell my mom, but she bribed me not to by saying she would give me all her candy if I wouldn’t tell. I guess I didn’t. LOL Both my sisters love to tell that story every Halloween to my family and friends. So yeah, I could live without it.

      Nice sisters ya got there. 😦

      I could live without Halloween, myself. The constant ringing of the doorbell drives my dogs nuts.

    I remember climbing up a steep flight of stairs to an apartment above a house and not even getting candy— I think they gave us an apple. UGH. They said they didn’t realize it was Halloween………..

    I like halloween. I remember going trick or treating. then knowing where the “good” candy was. changing costumes and going back. and it worked most of the time!!!

  12. Nicolas October 30, 2009 at 1:48 pm

    On Halloween, I hand out the candy at the door now because I’m too old to be trick-or-treating. And to be honest, I have plenty of candy sitting in the bowls, so I can just dip into that lol.

    I always loved Halloween!! I love to spend time with the kids getting their costumes together…but the best part is going through the loot with them after its over and eating so much candy I get a verified sugar buzz!!!

    Congrats Karin, you’re gonna love these two records! 🙂
