I love love love Halloween...I like the weekend before because the wife and I usually cook a meal and say up late and watch scary movies...fun.....

On Halloween night, we have a tradition over the past five years of going to Mom's, eating Pizza, and giving out candy. It's just kinda a kickoff of the season to me....

Not a lot of decorating, though.....save that for Thanksgiving and Christmas...

We decorate the outside ... organge lights, fall leaves garland, hay stacks with pumpkins and scarecrows, purple lights, 3 light up blowmold pumpkins, 2 different halloween pumpkin inflatables ... We carve pumpkins a day or 2 before halloween.

Inside I have various types of pumpkins - that I decorate through out. I am thinking about adding ornage ligts and fall garland to the inside this year... we shall see.

We have alot of cute (non scary) halloween movies that we sit and watch with the kids during the month of Oct.

Hubby will stay home to hand out candy.. some years he will dress up if he feels up to it and the weather ... I take the kids around our neighborhood.

We used to drive them all over to friends and family but that got to be too much .. now we only drive them my dads, hubbys dad and a friends after they go trick or treating through the neighborhood.

Our kids are already thinking of what they want to be for halloween. Trying to talk one of them into letting me dress them up as a Christmas Present but so far its a nope.

After Halloween ... the pumpkins come down and the inflatable turkey goes up outside.

My family loves Halloween! I decorate the entire house with pumpkins and such. I have to keep it pretty kid friendly for now, maybe when my kids get a little older they'll be more into the spooky stuff! We love to go trick or treating and we always go to Seaworld to check out the haunted forrest. I make chocolate chip pancakes for breakfast and bake all kinds of goodies. I'd say it's defiantly my second favorite holiday! I'm looking forward to it this year.

I love Halloween. We do a lot of decorating inside and out. We always have a lot kids come for trick or treat because we're in a safe, quiet neighborhood.

I loved reading all of your replies. Halloween is one of my favorite times of the year right behind Thanksgiving and Christmas. To me, as it was mentioned here, is the kick off to the Christmas season!

I know some like the gory stuff but I don't care for that side of it. I know it's part of the Halloween tradition for some, just not for me. I do decorate with witches, ghost, Frankenstein, etc. but they are not the scary looking ones, more folksy looking. I have a lot of scarecrows too. I decorate the outside with pumpkins, Halloween wreath, lights and an inflatable haunted house. If I am at home to pass out candy I play scary sounds on my CD player. That's about as scary as it gets at my house. =)

I take my grandchildren to the Halloween carnival at the elementary school I use to go to every year. I have so much fun and it brings back so many memories when I was a kid.

It is an absolute MUST to watch, It's the Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown, numerous times in October. I watch it even when the kids are not at my house. =)

I wish it was that time of year already!
