Halloween Treats

 
 
Reply Thu 27 Sep, 2007 11:45 am
What are everyone's favorite treats and decorations for Halloween? My family loves this holiday so each year we make lots of goodies, carve pumpkins, and get in the festive spirit. We love candy apples and we always decorate cookies. This year I found some great food and decorating ideas on better.tv and I'm planning on making the ghost cookies they suggested. Who else likes to get in the Halloween spirit??

It varies dramatically by where you live. In more conservative parts of the USA, you'll be hard pressed to get a trick-or-treater at your door. I personally love Halloween - being a non-religious day of the dead kind of guy.

One of our favorite things to do was to invite our apartment and more rural dwelling friends over to our house on our very busy street for a Halloween potluck. It was truly one of the best days of the year.

One guy in our town who worked for Pixar spent $150,000 on his display. There was no candy handed out. The animatronic display repeated its choreography four times an hour....

I used to take a few slices of bread and cut them into little cubes. The cubes are wrapped in aluminum foil, colored when available. Now dump them into a big bowl and present them to the little ones. Now, imagine the looks on their faces when they get a block away and unwrap them under the street light.

How long did it take to clean up the toilet paper and candle wax the next day?

Haha, I'm sure the kids loved it when they opened those candy treats! I enjoy having the kids come to the door and giving them candy. Seeing the costumes is so fun! I do not normally do very much decorating besides pumpkins but this year I'm thinking of getting more creative. I want to make this Spooky Tree that I found and possibly a few other decorations for the front porch. Halloween will be here before we know it!

I love it when people make the rice krispy treats - much better than the store bought ones.

I also like the candy pumpkins, and candy corn. I know, everyone hates those things, but I can't get enough!

Definitely home-make treats for Halloween. We recently baked some cupcakes and decorated them all Halloweenish. Homemade rice crispy treats are the best! Holidays brings the best foods and desserts...I love this time of year!

Trick or bloody treat, last night I was trying to watch a film of which I missed half because there was a knock on the door every 60 seconds

Not to mention it cost me about $30 in lollipops and toffee apples

If I ever meet the American a$$hole that exported this to Britain I'll strangle him Razz

I totally agree, lovejoy. That's why I went down the pub last night.

I suppose, it was a Britain who imported it here from the UK.

Can't shoot him because he's a member of the occupation troops, ehem, oops, sorry: British Forces Germany (BFG) .

Imported what, Walter? Halloween? Or the awful American idea of trick or treating?

Halloween-spooky ghost stories-dressing up-parties-bobapples = OK. Good fun.

Trick or treat-kids knocking on stranger's doors at night-possible intimidation- recent trend of criminal damage as a "trick" = Not OK. Should be banned, or supervised correctly at the very least.

Halloween. (I live in the British Zone, you know.)

The trick/treating thing is done here 11 days later: a century old tradition at St. Martin's day.

Me? I blame it on the ancient Saxons.

Now, where were they from? Very Happy

Ah, then alles ist gut, Walter.

Apart from the penalty shoot outs, that is.

Run out of happy pills, cjhsa?

Personally, I would ban most American fads that find their way to these shores.

McD's, eating with hands in public, fast food obesity, rap, gangsta, bling, love of guns, spray can graffiti, the word "soccer", incorrect spelling, math as opposed to maths.

Shall I continue?

Yeah, please do, I could give a s--t. Remember, it flows downhill...

Eating with hands in public? WTF? A bit anal?

"Fast food obesity" - is that anything like "gun violence"? Laughing!!!
