    It's October once again. What are your Halloween plans this year?

    Dressing up? Party plans? Going to one of those fright-themed amusement parks? Staying at home and just eating candy? Some people ignore Halloween, but does anybody actively dislike it?

    If you have a Halloween-themed desktop, post it the Halloween desktop thread.

    Stay up late enjoying myself with others if possible... it's my birthday the following day. ;)

    Think I'll take a few days off work this year.

    I'll be in the Greenwich Village Halloween Parade, for sure. If weather permits I will only be wearing a rainbow towel, just as I did last year. Otherwise I'll find a nice warm costume :).

    Oh! The last time I was there was about 10 years ago, and I just went as a goth chick, how original. Now that I think about it, that was the last time I celebrated halloween. Is 31 too old for trick or treating? I could use a big bucket of candy :D

    For those of us not planning to host or attend a party, I suggest an online Halloween party, post your costume etc. :D

    Either pics of selv in costume, or avatar in costume.

    I'm dressing the dog up as Yoda.

    Rumor has it one of my colleagues throws our students a Halloween party every year that involves hanging donuts from light fixtures. Am only imagining where the "party" goes from there ...

    Hopefully there will be a concert going on. If not then I don't have a clue.

    Eating the candy that we won't be passing out because the neighborhood kids' parents think Halloween is Satan's birthday and won't let them go out to participate in such a ghastly demonic ritual.

    I've lived in this house for six years now. Kids used to come by until three years ago. Nothing since then.

    I think Halloween started to lose its appeal when you started having to x-ray your kid's candy at the police station to check for razor blades and whatnot.

    I'm pretty sure the honors college is having a halloween party. I may go to it. If I don't, I'll rent some scary movies with a few friends. :)

    I love Halloween! By far the best holiday.

    I will spend most of Halloween Day decorating the house, only to take it all down within a matter of hours. :( ...Halloween really should last a least a week. :D


    That reminds me, I've got to start searching iTunes for this year's Halloween music.

    If it's chilly, just go for the extra-plush rainbow towel.

    I'll be at the parade dressed as a tomato.
