    Well to my surprise being here for the first time in the last 14 years on Halloween Australia now celebrates it Its like walking around the shops there now with all the Halloween dress ups, buckets garden statues and the lollies, but as I am going out for dinner I will not be here to open the door.

    I dont blame you. I have always disliked halloween even when i was kid.
    We sit outside with a fire, my husband hands out candy and I get drunk, eat most of the candy and play with Ruthie and brutus. I mostly sit out there to show off my dogs in their costumes LOL. I'm more impressed with the dogs that come around than i am kids.

    I've thought of that but I'd have to leave the bowl of candy on the porch and the stomping of kids back/forth will make the boys go nuts . I'm leaning towards leaving the lights out and buying Halloween candy at 50% off the next day for my own consumption...yes, call me the selfish-Halloween-Scrooge-lady.

    I don't think you're a scrooge at all, we live in L.A. and you really need to watch what you're doing especially when people are walking around in disguise. We had 8 different parents (!!) actually trick or treating WITH their kids last year, I couldn't believe it. We had children the size of basketball point guards trick or treating. We're not passing out candy and if you're a scrooge then we are right there with you , it's a Friday night too and the Kings will be on TV lol, you can't DVR sports! GO KINGS GO!!!!!

    Where in the heck do you live in LA? Yeah I lived in LA for 9 years. Well when I lived there it was chains and knives. As time has passed so has the weapons of choice changed.
