Last year my girlfriend and I were at her house giving away candy to trick or treaters, and maybe 17 groups in all stopped by. This year I see few decorations, few costumes in stores, no horror movies on TV, etc. It depresses me at how such a fun and unique holiday has such small interest now, apparently.

I live in Las Vegas too.... You'd think it would be pretty popular around here.

On the other hand, at least I finally found some Count Chocula.

whatr serendipity, as I was goinna post about this inthe other hallween thread.

Halloween is a holiday for CHILDREN. It always has been, but due to the near-omnipresent infantilization of american adults, it has been converted into just another reason for adults to get drunk.
fear tactics and endless hyperbole and horror stories have made many parents afraid to trick or treat, cuz "anyone may be a KILLER!" even though the only kids ever hurt by candy were poisoned ar given dangerous shit by close relatives.
every year less and less kids come by trick or treating, instead they set up halloween "parties" at people's work, at the malls, at the schools, etc.

I love seeing kids dressed up and loving halloween, but when more than half the kids that ring the bell are 14 and wearing regular fucking clothes... that shit is just stupid.

personally, Halloween is boring to me, ever since I was around 14 or so. I do not see why adults get so into it.

oh well. party pooper.

Halloween, round my parts, has always been about wandering around, egging people, starting fights, getting pissed and so on. This year, I'm playing music at a murder mystery event, which will be much more fun than sitting in a darkened house so it looks like you're out.

I enjoy being with my friends but something about costume parties seems so desperate-for-fun to me. they always devolve into ogling the sluttiest costume. That is cool for about 5 minutes.
this year we are all gonna go on a walking halloween pub crawl. that should make for some good fights.

I would gleefully spend the rest of my life chained to a wall, with a plastic hose bound to my mouth, force feeding me nothing but Count Chocula, and 2% milk, and die the happiest man on the planet.

Yeah, dead as fuck. I remember when I was littler, there'd be a huge groups of kids trick or treating. Now you'll see a few houses with lights on. Then again, horror movies are quite dead too. Um, actually, nearly everything is worse now than it was, say, 10 years ago. So...

I want candy!
Bubblegum and taffy!
Skip to the sweet shop with my sweetheart Sandy!
Got my pennies saved so I'm her sugar daddy!
I'm her Hugh Cronen, she's my Jessica Tandy

I want candy!

it's definitely dead around in these parts.
I try my darndest to make it exciting for the kiddies that actually DO trick-or-treat these days. adults make it impossible for kids to have fun. now instead of wandering around in the dark going to stranger's houses, we have "safe night" where you go to a "safe" location (like a high school, YMCA, etc) and give kids lame candy like fucking popcorn balls (okay that shit is good, but still) and it's just generally boring. I remember back when I was a kid they showed fucking ROCKY HORROR on tv... now those were the days.

since those days are gone I go all-out with decorations and theatrics. I'm gonna hide in the bushes next to my house and grab ankles of any kids that go to my door. MWAHAHAHHAHAHAHHAHHJEFKJLFKJGHGHGHG

dead around here too, just as you mentioned. We were just talking about that today too. first it felt like the holiday slipped up on us without a care and probably a great deal in part to the fact that nobody is participating, decorations and all that. It might have a lot to do with the economy.

I've seen people around here go in debt with decorations, parties and all. this year no-one seems to care.

I love halloween so much. I love the smells and the sounds and the creepy bits of october. Nobody has a do a thing right around now for that creepy scary fucked up feeling to happen. I already feel it. The people around me are acting all jumpety and defensive and spooked, too. It's so awesome. Thats why halloween was made, not the other way around. It's nature.

I'd love to get a house. I would be so scary and have patches and burn wounds and all kinda shit all over me, and have someone in the garden to the side in a leaf pile to jump out at the kids when they came up to the door.
