I went as a friend, and he went as me. :P
It was funny.

Nothing. But if I could have been anything, I would have been Krusty the Clown.

Well, I'm too old, I just played Guild Wars, and I see no point in Halloween anymore.

Halloween is meant to be a scary holiday, where horror films are released in the theaters, for adults to enjoy a scary evening, but there hasn't been any plus now a days I see is this cute crap, where it's meant to be a holiday for scaring and candy. I just stayed at home as I always did. How many Trick or Treaters you guys get? I got none again this year, so it was nice and quiet.

We got around 90-something. Of course, we had 115 pieces of candy to give, and we had only 25 pieces left.

Toothache for all, hahaha. Well, I think it was last year mother had this large box of lollipops, and I'm not a candy person but I did eat a few and gave me a stomachache since chocolate/candy isn't really my thing but I was playing WoW that night, (I love the game wish I could play forever without any fees), so it was quiet last year, quiet this year. When I was at the other house, we had a few not a lot but a few. The house I was at where I grew up at (I was 14 there), we had loads of trick or treaters, and on the windowsill we'd have about 5 bags left so my mother and me had whatever was left, but sweets don't agree with me stomach and it causes nasty pain, but I still eat candy if I feel the mood to.

That just demonstrates the oddity of Haloween: it is mostly an American thing. Europeans (like you, Yami) usually have the occasional pumpkin on the porch, the occasional skeleton decoration, while us Americans go crazy over Haloween.

I didn't make a Jack-o-Lanturn this year. I used to when I was younger.

We didn't get any trick or treaters. In fact I don't think we ever have.

I find Halloween so blown out of proportion. IT IS SUPPOSED TO BE A DAY TO SCARE SPIRITS, PEOPLE. NOT TAKE CANDY AND DRESS UP AS CUTE LITTLE PRINCESSES.

We Americans are great at discarding holiday traditions and creating our own. Look what we've done to Christmas.

I so agree with you Brocco. I mean it's meant to be fucking scary not cute as Foamy the Squirrel says. Obey the Squirrel! Seriously, it's a a scary holiday, not a cute holiday. We're just as bad here, where good horror movies would come on TV, Sky Movies, but now we get total crap instead. Christmas sucks because we don't get any snow here in England, Halloween sucks here, so what else is going to be ruined in the years to come.

You're lucky. Last year, when my mom gave some candy to one of the dozens of trick-or-treaters, they said 'Is that all?'

Consequently, we didn't give out candy this year.

We had none to give out as I knew there wasn't going to be any trick or treaters again this year.

More than likely the reason we've never got trick-or-treaters is because we live a good ways out of the way of town. We live on a dirt road about a quarter mile off the main road. Not a lot of people would walk that far out of the way.

Honestly, I saw a lot of scary costumes this year, then there was the fairies and the Sherlock Holmes people.

In fact, my friend went as Sherlock Holmes.

I love Halloween, its my favourie holiday.
I went to my cousins house who set up little graveyard and I dressed as a Werewolf. The kids all got a scare out of me. X3 Two of my cousins friends dressed as Vampires and handed out bags of candy, then told the kids they could get more candy from me if they dared to try. >:3

Sounds like you had a blast, Naitekiakki. Guild Wars sucked for me again, bastards have messed with the AI and I lost the Survivors Title yet again. ¬¬

I respect the scary origins of Halloween, but where I am it's so watered down that there's no point in being scary at all. The entire thesis of the holiday has been degraded to begging for candy, and one gets more candy with non-scary costumes. I like candy, so I went as a fish (not scary.) It worked; I got extra candy for having a homemade costume. In essence, I would try to be something more scary, but a) if I did my parents would probably have a heart attack when they saw my true personality and b) I have a weakness for massive Snickers bars. Still, it sounds like you all had some fun, so it's not completely gone.

Are you kidding? A fish is terrifying.

Sharks are. I didn't go as anything other than myself. I'm 21, too old for halloween and it's been watered down too much.

Like Wa, I realize that Halloween has been degraded by society (just like Christmas), but a giant-sized Three Musketeers bar is a giant-sized Three Musketeers bar. *smiles lazily as he chews on said bar*
