Time is ticking closer to Halloween...for 10 years I lived in an area that never got t-r-trs...only 1-2 kids from my complex if even that. The candy was selected by moi due to this expectation of 0 attendance on All Hallows Eve...well, someone had to eat the candy.  ;D

A recent move to a different neighborhood and current Global Health Situation has me thinking that despite this... two bags of candy are in order. Ya never know.
I'm looking forward to a stroll in my neighborhood in October to see how folks will decorate their yards.

The decorations will still go up in the house...but of course. Yay! Can't wait!

There will always be a Halloween in some shape or form... tynhrt

Everyday is Halloween in our household.
Me and about 10 friends will gather regardless and have a bonfire on Nov 1.
Everybody needs to believe in something , I believe I'll have another beer!

Yeah, I knew it was happening.  It's just sobering to see it made "official".

Now it seems they've flip-flopped and said, while it's not outright banned, it's just not recommended.
My thanks to whoever lobbied in favor of saving our Hallowed Eve!

A couple thoughts for this upcoming Halloween:

1) For those who are in a locale where there will / may be Trick-or-Treaters ... I am planning on making a "chute" delivery system.  Michael Myers (me!) will be up on the porch of the Myers house with pre-packaged bags of candy.  As the kids arrive, I will deliver bags of candy down the chute to their waiting bags ... a no contact candy delivery system!

2) For those who have trick-or-treating cancelled (that could be me!) ... what if we have a scary movie watch party right here on the UMA forum?  We could set up a schedule of movie start times (or just use TCM, I assume they will have a slate of scary movies again this year) and watch together while commenting on a dedicated thread.

We'll just have to make lemonade out of the lemons this year!  :-)

Hey, Wolfman...why Sept. 18?
I always do it on a Friday, and thought this was a good day to do it. Also, I always play the original Monster Mash to kick things off. Lol

Suddenly dawned on me how I want to decorate my window.

Graveyard:   Trick-or-Treaters, heads bowed, standing around a gravestone.  Engraved on the stone is the single word "HALLOWEEN".  (This should be an editorial cartoon. *)

Then, I'll put a "Sorry, No Treats This Year" sign on the door.


At least I'll be warmer this year.  I always set near the open door until after midnight.

I don't know about anyone else, geographically.  But in my area,Walmart, Michael's, Spirit, Halloween Express and Party City are selling their Hallowe'en decor and costumes quite well.

Halloween is bombing at the cash register:

Because of the Leap Year, next Halloween is on a Monday.  If much of the C-19 concern lingers then, things will be grim 2 years in a row.   Some of the less dedicated among us may lose the habit of blowing big bucks on decorations and costumes.

Personally I'm looking forward to the sales of unsold Halloween candy on November 1st. That's the silver lining to this cloud!

Collecting! It's what I do!
