I just realised my favourite holiday of the year is coming up. So I wonder if anyone loves HALLOWEEN as much as I do. :D

For a horror movie, it was pretty good, only I wish Michael Myers had been stalking a middle-aged redhead who breaks into song a lot and is famous, because I could have made a fortune playing that part.

I don't mind at all as my fears was over already :) I watched the movie in few months ago as I obsessed with Stephen King and I find out IT based by him so, I watched it ;)

Michael Myers breaks into my dressing room and I give him a thorough tongue lashing and a dressing down. He leaves, almost in tears. Jamie Lee's got nothing on me! Plus, I could attack him with part of my Calder mobile, that's way more deadly than wire hangers.

Apart from movies, it's a great holiday. Half the men in West Hollywood dress up like me, and the other half like Neely, and they run around wig grabbing.

Michael Myers is scary. :bolt: But what I don't understand is, how can a clown be scary? :haha:

I hate Halloween (the holiday). It's an American phenomenon with NO roots in Europe so why should I be celebrating it?

it definitely has roots in europe.

maybe you are confusing halloween with thanksgiving.

Ok, I realised it had roots in Europe after I posted it. Fact is, we hadn't celebrated it for ages (or at least in the Netherlands we hadn't), until the hype came from America to Europe, and we certainly didn't celebrate it this way. Halloween as it is hyped in the shops and everywhere nowadays has nothing to do with the medieval feast you're referring to with the roots it has in Europe. Halloween as it is today is American without a single European feature.

And I wasn't confusing it with Thankgiving either :lol: I'm not that :silly: you know

I like Halloween, but I think it lost a lot of it's appeal when I got too old to go around and get candy :ras:

Thanksgiving is good, all that food and finally almost a year since I had turkey. Christmas is even better, snow, at least usually good enough for snowboarding, and all that Christmas fudge I get to make. ;)

A very freaky thing happened at my sisters (and my ex) high school at Halloween two years ago. The kids were celebrating Halloween and a few days later there was a scandal all over tabloids that they were actually participating in a Satanist ritual. :rolleyes:

This tradition that comes from the usa is now in France for a few years and I admit I don't like.
I prefer mardi gras, bit it doesn't have the same impact because of halloween.

I love this holiday! because its on my birthday MY B-DAY ALSO! :wavey:

As a kid I got extra candy when I told people it was my b-day. As an adult there was always a huge block party in downtown Orlando on Church Street. Now we have a bunch of religious freaks saying it's SATAN's day...blah blah blah ...

I kept my costume from when I was the Tooth Fairy in When Darkness Falls. Should I dress up like her for Halloween? I'm going to a party at Mary McFadden's and I want to be the center of attention. I think this will do it.

What's thanksgiving? How do you celebrate it? We don't have it here. I used to think it was just the american name for christmas, until I realised it was in november.

It's a US holiday that celebrates when the Pilgrims from England landed at Plymouth Rock and the Indians helped them with food and the like. The Pilgrims and the Indians made friends, the Indians showed them what to eat and they broke bread together. Apparently, they ate wild turkey and so it's traditional to have a turkey for Thanksgiving. It's the last Thursday in November usually. It's hard to explain Thanksgiving to non-Americans because after the Plymouth Rock landing, Europeans coming to American basically obliterated the Indians, took their land, and destroyed their culture. Now they live on dumpy reservations and have tax-free casinos. Wow, it's been a long way since Plymouth Rock.....
