    One of my favorite holidays is Halloween, and one of my favorite things to do is dress up and party with my fellow SW fans. Both in person, and on the boards.[face_pumpkin]

    So what has everyone got planned? And what should we do here? I cannot resist a sock party. [face_skull]

    I can't stand Halloween. Stupid teenagers coming round with a binbag tied round their neck expecting me to give them cash. They can **** off :p

    ...where do you live, Hal? [face_worried]


    There's got to be something completely legal you could do to scare them to death. :p

    i love Halloween! I always go to a local con with my fellow ff'ers and we have a great time. Typically, we volunteer our costumed services to a non-profit or two as well. :)

    Hal, you should move to Germany. There aren't many kids running around and wanting sweets at Halloween, but you'll find some decorations. :p

    And you should think about doing a nice holiday in the beginning of November (around the 11th), because then the German tradition of 'Sankt Martin' starts, which includes kids sining songs and getting candies for it. It's nice. :D

    Oh, and do you enjoy carnival? That season starts on the 11th of November as well, but the main time of it is in Feburary mostly lasting almost one week. But then no one will come to your doors, but you can't go anywhere by car (without planning carefully) because of the many parades. :p

    Aside from here, I don't know that I'll be doing anything. It's Dad's favorite holiday so I usually help him pass out candy (he's the Grim Reaper and scares little kids) but this is my first year away.

    I have to go play in the band for my high school's home football game. For some reason, it is on Halloween. :rolleyes:

    Our FF Halloween party will be the weekend before Halloween.

    I'm looking forward to actually have trick-or-treaters this year. I bought my first house in March, and I live in a neighborhood with kids for the first time in years.

    You look a bit frozen, Mike, you should turn on the heater. ;) :p


    I wonder if there will be kids for 'Sankt Martin' (around 11/11). Last year there weren't any and I hoped for some. So I don't think they will come to my home this year. :(

    one of our FF members is having a costume party on the 18th, no star wars costumes allowed... I'm going as Mother Earth, wearing a crown of flowers and a toga.

    This week my husband and I are going to Nightfall, which is I guess like a Halloween festival.. I've never been, they have haunted houses, trails, and scary,comedic skits from what I can tell from the website.

    Then on Halloween night my husband and I are invited to a major party that doesn't start till Midnight on, but it's not associated with FF at all, we are going though and I am gonna force myself to Karaoke [face_blush] . My husband Karaokes four songs a week but I'm a [face_chicken] , I have Karaoked once in my whole life and it was in Vegas where no one is ever gonna see you again... unless you count with my kids at home. My luck the young folks at the party are gonna laugh me off the stage.. but I gotta grow some ***** and get with it!!

    So far no one else in our FF has mentioned any FF ideas. Would be fun to get together earlier in the night and hang out with FF folks though.

    anyway.. that's a lot of Halloween plans.. jeesh 8-}

    I'm hoping that it won't rain on Halloween which it usually does. My gf and I are talking about going on a haunted hayride in the historic district of a city not far from here.

    I hope it won't rain as well, because we (some friends and me) want to go to a Halloween party. But I don't know what I should wear. Any ideas? ;)

    Getting closer with the pirate costume. I spent ALL DAY yesterday working on one darned spat for the boots (ok, I did other things in between). My machine and I weren't seeing eye to eye. It's new still and finicky.
