Um...studying? Haha, I miss the days when I could dress up and go out collecting all that fine candy! I still dress up though, I think it's fun! But I'll probably be either working or doing homework! :(

Halloween seems to be more an American tradition (Canada too! :D ) Dunno why... Over here we get kids making a half assed attempt at dressing up and demanding money off people.

Really? It's not as celebrated in the UK? Usually as soon as labour day is over, there are Halloween advertisements up, decorations up, and costumes to be bought in the stores. It's a HUGE deal over in America...I think it's because America loves to celebrate and make a load of money off of crass commercialism. Seems to be working too! ...

Last year I dressed up for the first time. I went to work dressed as a witch. I went to work on the bus. It was really funny, because I was handling customer issues in a call centre - I was thinking "you know how much I care about you, I'm dressed as a witch."

You know how people with similar characters do similar things? Out of mine and the other team who were in training together, it was me on my team and my friends Kelly and Lee on the other team who dressed up. Me and Kelly ended up in the company magazine, lol.

I didn't go out last year or anything though. This year I'm going to a house party. I know my clubbing friends will be going out, but I've been invited to this house party by another friend, and besides I know I'll be celebrating New Year with my clubbing friends.

I don't celebrate Halloween as it is a Pagan ceremony and I am a Christian!

It's how you celebrate a holiday really. Even though Halloween is considered to be Pagan by some people...it doesn't mean that you have to actually participate in the 'ceremonies' that go along with it. Perhaps it is different over here, but all that Halloween consists of over here is children being able to dress up and go around and get as much free candy that they want for a night. That's all there is to it. I'm sure there are some who might take it a little bit more seriously then that, but on the most part...that's all it is. Pagan's, I'm sure, celebrate Christmas. They don't celebrate it's meaning...the birth of Jesus Christ into this world...but they celebrate being able to get and give a lot of gifts.

I don't agree with all the commericialism that goes with all these things.

No one I know has ever really celebrated halloween. Although I was over in Florida in an October and there were decorations everywhere.

Do you know there is even a Grandparents day - all the card companies trying to make more money if you ask me!
