How about some Halloween spirit around here? Or at least some Halloween avatars?

@OmSigDAVID,
Haha! Now, why would I do that? Very Happy Wink

And who are the powers that be? Shocked

Are they watching us?

Can they hear us?!

Oh gosh!

I'm scared.

(great David. My Halloween days just started and I'm already freaking out!)

Here is Antonio’s pumpkin. Of course I carved it and let him do the dirty work by cleaning it out, he enjoyed that part.

Here, gracie, trick or treat:

Though in Michigan, where I grew up, we always yelled "Help the poor" at people's doors, rather than "Trick or treat"--apparently people only said that around Detroit.

The people who make candy corn have done an incredible snow job on the American public. Do you know how hard it is to find pictures of Halloween candy that don't include candy corn, altho it is almost universally the least favorite or second least favorite candy among both kids and adults, widely regarded as fit only for throwing at your brothers or sisters. My favorite was always homemade popcorn balls, tho nobody seems to make them anymore.

I tend to spend Halloween at a folk club in Cambridge, and usually get a bunch of candy for a bowl of trick or treat goodies for everyone--this year Tootsie rolls, caramels, Dove chocolates, Hershey's kisses, and gummy skeletons and pirate skull lollipops, mixed in with anatomically correct plastic cockroaches and houseflies, in the spirit of the season. everybody got a candy and a roach. Not everyone took the roach, but a surprising number of people did--there may be some very surprised coworkers at lunch tomorrow in various company cafeterias in the Boston area. Adults really seem to get off on getting Halloween candy years after they passed 15 and aged out of the door-to-door. Hope everyone of us had a tooth-rotting good time.

@tsarstepan,
When we finally get around to more visual customization (themes, colors, flair etc) they are going to be dedicated to you, you know. It will be known in the skunkworks as the project to deliver a more colorful life unto the Tsar.

@djjd62,
I've just been to Asda, (part of Walmart) all of the Halloween sweets are still in the same promonotional displays, but Halloween sweets has been changed to Bonfire sweets.

I have never actually blushed (as far as I can remember) to anything I have ever read on an online forum, to now. First time for everything. Embarrassed Smile

Oooo! Thanks Monterey Jack! I know Halloweens over so you really don't need all that Candy.It's just not good for you. But hey, I'll
be a good friend and take all of it off your hands. No need to thank me, I'm happy to help.

Now just hand all the candy over to me...

Very Happy Laughing
