I'll be hosting a halloween party.
Halloween is not a huge deal over in the UK but my kids love it. We did a party 2 years ago, games like apple bobbing and donuts on string, it was a real laugh. This year will be a whole different bunch of friends as we've moved town since our last party, i just hope they are up for fun. The house will be decorated, we will all dress up, plenty of food and drink, and the kids can have fun without trick-or-treating on the streets as i dont think its safe.

The UK does more parties rather than Trick-or-Treating, but even having parties is new. When we were here in the 70's you didn't see Halloween costumes or decorations in the stores. I will be handing out candy at home and at work; Americans will be bringing their kids to trick-or-treat at the office. I have a really cute decoration that I'm just finishing for my door, and if I can find 3 large, plastic galleon jugs, I hope to string some lights through them and decorate them like ghosts to place near the front door.
LOL....you got that idea from FamilyFun.com didnt you? LOL...I was thinking about making them myself. Lookup spooky spider, I made one today and it is really super huge and so easy to make.

We like to scare the kids in the neighborhood. We go all out. The week before we carve pumpkins and get all the stuff outside that people can't steal or ruin. The day before, we convert the garage into a little scene. Last year it was my "house" and there were limbs sticking out of traveling cases and small baby sized skeletons hanging all around. I have a cool old chair and lamp that went in that part. We have lifelike scarecrows out that are just old clothes with a mask. My dad ends up dressing up in the same way and sitting in a different chair every year. We have a couple of hidden skeletons. My favorite is one that is dressed as a pirate up on the roof. Then there is one in a coffin. Then we put out witchs around a cauldron that we put a fog machine into so that it is smoking. At night we get a few people(mostly my brother and some friends)to sit around the house, either as dead people that wont move for awhile or just hiding. After all that I end up going to a party. Not sure what I'm going to be this year. I was thinking of a Belle costume but I still havnt gotten around to making it. Might just go as a go-go girl

My old college roomate and I meet every year (and have since we first lived together in 98) to go to Halloween Horror nights at that other park....its really really scary and sooo much fun.
Riley (2yo) is going as "Dumbo" this year....he has a really cute costume all ready to go. We will be going to WDW at some point (pass holder) but not to MNSHP (too $$) depending on the weather I may let him wear it to the park

I am going as Cartman from SP
I was going to add that, but I was hoping at least one person would think I was clever all on my own.

The little kids didn't think anything of it, but the older kids nearly jumped backward off the porch when they saw me reach through the door to hand out candy. The frame was there, and they just "thought" they saw glass. It was funny the first year, and then after that, it was the highlight of my Halloween evening.
I like scaring neighborhood children ....it is the highlight of my year. Reeks tho, we dont get any bodies back in my courtyard.(too dark and one house had problems at one time before we moved in ) Since Donnie, Meghyn and I are doing the group thing this year as Tink, Pan , and Wendy I will prob stay home next year and advertise it. I have tons of tombstones and all kinds of neato stuff to decorate with. I SOOOOO want to make at least 2 more of those big spiders. Wanted to put one on the top of the car but Donnie wont let me. Phoeey on him...I will talk him into it by Halloween. HEHEHEHE!
Had to go check out that site you mentioned Vix, love that spider! The milk jug ghosts are great too, I'll have to keep that site in mind for next year!
It is really awesome when it is done....HUGE THING! Glad I have a spacious attic to store this stuff in. LOL Family Fun has tons of cool and easy crafts to do for all seasons.
