I realize that Halloween is a big night for keikis in the USA, but I am curious. Those of you who read me from the rest of the world, how do you celebrate this non-holiday event. Or are ghosts, goblins and things that go bump in the night strictly an American custom?

For those from America, what is your fondest or scariest memory of Halloween?

Wil, it's not a custom in Oz. Occasionally, some kids will try it on but I tell them it's not our tradition and to bugger off. Actually, I don't answer the door!

While visiting friends in Oregon, we helped cut out pumpkins but had to fly out the day before.

I used to be big into Halloween, dressing up every year, and throwing a huge pumpkin carving party the Friday before Halloween. Haven't done that since I divorced, have smaller quarters, less money. :-) I still visit a local haunted house every year though...sit at the back door and watch people scream as ax-murder clowns chase them out of the building

It only really became a big thing around 15 - 20 years ago, the kids go door to door, but try asking for money before sweets(candy) (no chance).

Unfortunately, it just seems to be another reason for the shops to sell you a load of junk you don't really need and will only use once a year - hang on a minute, am I talking about Christmas or Halloween??

I love Christmas and I don't mind Halloween, but it is really for the children and if it makes them happy who am I to criticise.

Up here in Scotland - the kids sometimes refer to going out "guising" instead of trick-or-treating. They will sometimes carve turnips (rutabaga) instead of pumpkins. In any case, our village has a really nice Halloween party for ALL the kids in the village and then the bigger kids go door to door. It is a lot of fun for all. The other thing is that the kids still have to do something for their sweeties - sing, recite a poem or most often, tell a joke.

Halloween is my favorite holiday. My mom also likes it better than Christmas. Her rationale... there are no expectations. You can do as little or as much as you want and just have fun with it. This will be my first in my own house, so I took the night off and plan on spoiling the neighborhood kids rotten!
