How are you spending your Halloween?

I know that lots of people have very different traditions for celebrating the holidays, so I was wondering how everyone was spending their Halloween. My family and myself usually indulge in a variety of activities such as festivals and church activities. This year we will be taking the children trick or treating and then coming home and watching scary movies as a family. We all also dress up...Even though I am 30, I still get a kick out of trick or treating, so I still trick or treat with my kids, plus, I don't feel comfortable sending them up to some strangers door alone...

That sounds like fun, I think we have a parade, but I am not sure where!! How sad is that, I have kids and I have no clue where the parade is, but I could tell you where every haunted house is in the city!!

haunted house sounds fun. are they really scare or just lame? i think the amusement parks like disneyland and knotts berry farm probably have haunted house events for halloween.

nothing really special. we might take our daughter to the mall or perhaps just stay at home. she's gonna be a princess and she's really excited to go trick or treating in our neighborhood.

I'm not sure what we're doing this year. I know for a fact we're watching the live ghost hunt on TV from Ghost Hunters. That's become a tradition for us in a way. We also discovered a place here in town that kind of caters to college students. It's a place that bakes cookies and brownies and delievers them late night to students so we're thinking about ordering some cookies, brownies and getting a Halloween goody bag from them as well. Other than that, I'm not exactly sure what we're going to do. I'd like to do a lot of things that night but I doubt we'll get to do much.
