HALLOWEEN r US
« on: October 24, 2014, 08:26:01 PM »

Halloween is just around the corner so we figured we'd see if the kids should stay away from your place...or better yet....stay away from YOU.....

You can check off as many of the items that apply to you and yours from the above listing......

All comments are welcomed as always....and maybe some have things they do on Halloween that are pretty cool or insane....  In either case, I'm sure we'd like to hear them.

So have FUN and enjoy.... :hallosign:

This year I've got a big rubber horsehead skull mask (normal net geeks just wear horse heads or unicorn heads), the lawn looks like Halloween exploded all over it (tombstones, ghosts, pumpkins, a zombie cat, a life sized skeleton and lots of lights) and we've got enough Good Candy to give a Catholic family diabetis.

I found out the year I moved to this Apartment Complex that buying 3 bags of candy was not a good thing if you don't have a back up plan on how to get rid of the candy.

I got  a total of 2 Trick or Treaters....  One was a child...the other was his mother :thud:

I use to run out of candy when I had my own house.....and had more fun scaring the kids that knocked on  the door then giving out the Candy...which earned me many a smack from the wife....

Now I buy one bag of candy...of stuff that I like....that will last the year if need be  :tearlaugh:

And yes, I still dress up....just to confuse the dog  :java:

I perform strange, dark rituals to contact the dead ancestors and seek knowledge that is forbidden to most...because you know, that's when the veil between the worlds is thinnest. One of two nights, any way. So, why would I encourage children to come knocking on my door? I might take a mind to eat them or something!!

:#1kitteh:

Seriously, I don't do that. I talk to angels instead.   :icu:

Our complex has a Halloween party for the kids at the clubhouse, so they don't really come around...which is fine by me. My door is always decorated for Halloween with spider webs...except for when they hose down the building in the summer. But then they're baaaaaack within 2-3 weeks. o.O  For some reason, they LOVE my doorway. I can't keep up with them, so I gave up. As long as they stay outside, we're good.

So 'festive' looking!

You Don't Celebrated Halloween because it's not your countries tradition
Unfortunately, in my town we don't celebrate Halloween.
At the start of 2000 years, we have many children who passed in shops, and a little at homes.
But store owners have stopped playing the game with candy after 2/3years. And there are few decorations or costumes associated with Halloween now here.
Especially the municipality installs Christmas decorations in September. So people haven't the head in Halloween celebration.

But i know that in some towns in France, Halloween is always celebrated.

It is unfortunate because it is an european/celtic festival in origin.

According to many scholars, All Hallows' Eve is a Christianized feast initially influenced by Celtic harvest festivals, with possible pagan roots, particularly the Gaelic Samhain. Other scholars maintain that it originated independently of Samhain and has solely Christian roots.

According to many scholars, All Hallows' Eve is a Christianized feast initially influenced by Celtic harvest festivals, with possible pagan roots, particularly the Gaelic Samhain. Other scholars maintain that it originated independently of Samhain and has solely Christian roots.
Christians installing their faith everywhere rushed to steal the dates of festivals, and diverting heroes and gods  for make with them saints.
It is not the subject, but on December 25 for Christ simply comes from the fact that the god Mithra was born on December 25.
And Candlemas on February 2, is originally a Celtic festival (I forget its name). A festival related to the goddess Brighid (goddess of fire), which became St. Bridget.
It's the same thing for many temples, which were become churchs.
So it's sure that Samhain and Halloween have the same roots, and Halloween is more or little divert of Samhain. The light in darkness because days get shorter; and a night of passage between worlds.
This does not prevent that we lost many things in connection with our roots in the last 3 centuries.

And that is so sad because instead of embracing their heritage, they get scared away by the boogie monster. There is so much wisdom accumulated within the collective ancestral minds that we could stop all this sickness, wars, famine. *Sigh*... Humankind definitely is not the better form of life on this planet.
When life gives you lemons, freeze them and throw them back at the bastards. :hawk:
