I know Australia doesn't...it has gained some popularity recently but we don't have people coming to our door and what not. Halloween usually goes by un-noticed over here. We've got Labor Day instead.

Halloween is more like a kid's holiday in Colombia. You don't really see anyone past 12 dressing up.

Heh, Halloween always makes me think of the Halloween episode (funny that) on the Simpsons where Marge sees Homer in a tatty outfit complete with broken stovepipe hat and says 'Homer, you're not going as a hobo again?' to which Homer replies 'Going where?'

I love it.

Plus I'd dress up a carton of milk with a missing person on the side.

I stopped trick or treating years ago, but every other Halloween or so I decide to dress up when handing out candy. But, this year a friend of mine is forcing me to go trick or treating with her, LOL. I'm either going to be a thing wearing a monk's rob with a random monster mask, a vampire, a hippy, or a vampire-hippy. :-P

I'm going to have a little costume party with my friends, so I need to prepare materials for it( i.e. the ones we could find out around not to spend much money). Oh yes, we'll have sweets and snacks and anything we like...
p.s. in my country we don't have custom of "trick or treat" nor celebrate Halloween in general. So, if some people want to do anything, they usually do it among them.

*grinds teeth*
Hallowe'en (I insist on the apostrophe) is another Pagan tradition taken on by the marketing arsehats to make money. I don't like the idea that 364 days of the year it isn't okay to take sweets from strangers but on this one day it's all right, and I also don't like that you're encouraged to go round strangers' houses demanding treats just because it's Hallowe'en.
And it may have some sort of American traditional/cultural significance but it sure as buggery doesn't here, however said marketing arsehats try to make it so. I don't like NZ becoming so Americanised (not to say anything against all of you!).
Thank the Goddess we live down a back section with a long, dark, tree-lined driveway so we hardly ever get them. Maybe this year I'll withhold the sweets unless they can tell me what Hallowe'en's really about. That'll show 'em :-)

If you are observing this night from a Pagan standpoint, Halloween is the most sacred night of the entire year.

It is the Pagan's "Christmas" per sey....a holy night. It is not "evil" at all...that is where it has been twisted by marketing over the years. I live near Salem Ma and it is famous for it's high volume of real witches and wizards living there. Every year they hold a huge month long event honoring every aspect of the Holiday. On the actual night, it's more of a celebration of the harvest ( both physical and psycological sense) and a time to be thankfull for that which you have reaped this year. In ancient times, the Druids and Celts considered this time of year to be when Summer ended and Winter began.

Okay...enough speiling....if you really want to learn the "real story" behind All Hallows' Eve do some reserch via Google or whatnot. It is interesting...and makes you rethink the way it is presented to society as a whole now.

I love Holloween! I am thinking of going to a college celebration... I think I'll go as Meat Loaf.
