Boo!

Today is one of my favorite days of the year. Halloween!

I love hearing ghost stories, watching scary shows on TV (not movies - more like the Ghost Hunter and/or Most Haunted shows), getting the kids ready for trick-or-treat, handing out candy, eating my favorite candy out of the kids' stash, the cooler weather... it is just a great day.

What is your favorite holiday and why? Christmas is fun, but Halloween... it's the best.

I like any holiday that springs the kids from school. KC loves Hallowe'en, it's her fav holiday. I like Christmas, but Easter is nice, too. The promise of spring, the melting snow...
Are you dressing up? Is Dozer?

Happy Halloween!

I am a Christmas freak. The lights, the trees, the decorations, the food, the fireplace blazing, and presents. My number one reason is the built up excitement. I get excited and the kids are even more excited.

I love Halloween! There's nothing like a day that mandates you dress up, act silly, and stuff yourself with otherwise forbidden candy! :)

Happy Halloween! I LOVE those ghost hunter shows too. TAPS is my favorite. The EVPs give me chills.

Me...Thanksgiving....no pressure, cooking [mmmmm oyster stuffing] watching the parade beginning at 8 am with a pitcher of mimosas while the turkey bastes....

Going on 20 years of cooking for the whole crew [our families] and it just never gets old....

I love Halloween too, because I get to sew [great passion] and my kids are always so happy to be in a costume no one else has....very appreciative....oh, and I love the wee little ones that come to the door!

I like your little friend..is that you under the sheet Marni...is it?...Nice feet!

Happy and safe Halloween!

My favorite is christmas. Not because of the gifts but because of family time. We read the retelling of the birth of Christ from the Gospels, open presents, eat, laugh, play games, eat, laugh. No pressure day filled with love and happiness. Being self employed those days of "vacation" are precious.

I like Halloween because I like any excuse to eat chocolate but Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday. Why? Turkey, cornbread dressing, the jellied craberry sauce that comes out of a can, my mom's green been casserole, sweet potato casserole, pecan pie and the nap that comes after dinner.

happy (late) Halloween. I still love Christmas the best...that's when the family gets together and we have a good ol' time...food, wine and song! Who can beat that?

Well my favorite season is the Fall. I love Halloween when I am creative enough to come up with a costume orget one that I like. My favorite costume was SpongeBob. I made it myself, and I have to admit it was very good. One year I went as Jambi (not sure of the spelling) you know the jeannie from Pee Wee's Playhouse? I'm very good with boxes for some reason. Stinky diver was pretty funny, but when I got hot, the chocolate with peanuts and corn started melting. It wasn't pretty.


I like the idea of Christmas, but since my sister moved out of state (with nephews) and my father passed away it's just not much fun. My mom doesn't like to cook big meals for 2 (me, her and my brother) so all the fun stuff for Thanksgiving and Christmas are kind of dull. I do enjoy giving gifts though, just wish I had more money every year.
