what do you all do for it if anything?

we have a 6 year old daughter so of course we go out trick or treating.

i just dig walking around checking out peoples decorations. watch a few scary movies.

we usually go to the halloween costume stores to mess around.

Looks like a fun day out with the gang. I love any occasion that gets my wife, 7 yr ol daughter and I together.

Halloween is pretty cool, but as Ive gotten older I personally dig Memorial Day and Labor day...cause I loce to cook on the smoker all day and rock 3 day weekends.

My daughter is a Chistmas geek, my wife leans towards anything old school pagan, like Equinoxes and Solstices and the like.

I do like the odd snickers or 3 musketeers so I wont kick Halloween outa the mix

When my boys were still here, I used to do a whole cemetery in the front yard, complete with glow in the dark replicas of my hands, made at my old job. Monsters and body parts everywhere.


I love Halloween. I just hate putting everything away after. Getting lazy in my old age. LOL

Now I just build a lego neighborhood, with different scenes at each house, with kids dressed up trick or treating.
I do miss being in town on Halloween, since we don't get trick or treaters out here.

Great Pics!

yeah man it just gets us out to be goofy. we go to the halloween stores and try on masks and go to haunted houses and such. its fun.

im not too into christmas except for the day itself. i like waking up and watching them open their stuff.

i try to be goofy whenever possible.

a few years back my brother was in the hospital around christmas time and they had a manger scene set up in the hospital lobby. i jumped in and propped little ole 6 lb, 12 oz newborn infant baby jesus's head up in my hands and snapped a pic.

ill see if i can find it

I despise Halloween. Of all of the holidays it's the most overrated. Plus a lot of people show their creepy side on Halloween because it's considered socially acceptable but you can tell a lot of them are really like that deep down and that weirds me out when it's someone I thought I knew pretty well.

My family is WAY into Halloween. My brother and sister in law used to run a haunted house for charity in an abandoned theater in my old hometown. My mom and dad’s house was a famous stop for decades. My mom would take a week to get individualized bags done for the annual trick or treaters on top of the candy and decorations.

She passed away in July after cancer ravaged her for three months.
We hope to keep up the Halloween spirit for her.

I’ll bet there are a lot more spirit Halloween stores now that Toys r us is no more...
Cheers all.

We used to have a Halloween costume thread pop up every year. Not sure if it is no longer allowed or if the poster is no longer with us. But I loved seeing the costumes of the members.

I remember those! I think I actually posted a pic in one of my witch costumes. They were fun threads.

I hope you did. I did not due to age and no children. Now with a couple kids under 5. I miss the opportunity to do so.

Me and some buddies got a zombie attack/Purge fest mobile show planned out for the neighborhood. Smoke grenades, graphic injury makeup, unloaded Paintballgun for the sound. Last couple of Halloween some have done the Christmas lights around the cars and playing the alert theme in their loud speakers. We want to adapt that, and then make it seem like we are dispatching the invasion. Then we toss some candy around for the spectators hope into the truck and move on to the next block.

I call it trick and treat 2018! I just hope everyone follows through. I may got eight people that said they'll participate, but you know how things can come up suddenly as the date gets closer.

Did you see the SJW and MSM outrage over advertising a Halloween costume? It got so bad Yandy had to take it down and put an apology in it's place. It may have been a little over the top but homemade should be showing up this Halloween and at many clubs.

I'm sure you'll be happy to know that Christmas starts two weeks before Halloween now.




Plus a lot of people show their creepy side on Halloween because it's considered socially acceptable but you can tell a lot of them are really like that deep down and that weirds me out when it's someone I thought I knew pretty well.


I just.......wow.
