    Dang it, I love Halloween and it's my favorite holiday to celebrate, but this year I will be recovering from Achilles tendon surgery and will be in a non weight bearing cast and crutches. Since my usual Halloween antics include quite a bit of alcohol, I sort of figure that alcohol, a fresh 8 inch incision, and crutches are not too good a combo.

    Bummer.

    I wish I could help, but I have no kids around here to even give candy to. =( Either that or the big pentacle on my door scares off the neighbors. :areyoucra

    Nope. It doesn't do anything for me.

    We'll buy some candy for our kids, rent a few movies and lock the door and turn off the front lights. Have a nice, quite night at home and ignore everyone else. :D

    Halloween is a Satanic holiday. It makes my heart weep when I see innocent children dressed up as demons and servants of the Dark Lord.

    I love me some Halloween. Everyone goes outside and sets fire to the neighbourhood, then the fire brigade come and put out the fires and the kids throw rocks at them. Good times, I hope it doesn't rain, hard to set fire to stuff when it's raining.

    Halloween can be a lot of fun. You'd be surprised how many costumes have nothing to do with anything evil.

    He was being sarcastic. (When in doubt, check the person's religion tag)

    Tis the season to trot out my collection of Halloween themed Hawaiian (& other island) shirts.
    No exchanging of gifts....no obligatory family get togethers...just masks & mirth.

    If I had to use sarcasm tags about 96.3% of my posts would be nothing but brackets.[/sarcasm]

    I have no idea what a Malthusian is or where you got that, but Achristian = Anti-Christian (I didn't have enough room for anti. It's a real word, though: Achristian - RationalWiki), and a maltheist is someone who believes in an evil god (Maltheism - RationalWiki).

    Oh, actually I do have a suggestion or two.

    Pick up a copy of BHG and Martha's Halloween issues. They're fantastic and full of awesome ideas.

    And, if you want to make some dessert treats, try mixing in half a can of pure pumpkin and some pumpkin pie spice into a Spice Cake mix, and top it off with some cream cheese frosting.

    We're throwing a joint birthday party for the girls at my sister's house. We're going to eat cake and then go trick or treating with the kids.

    My girls are going to be cats and I'm giong to be Juliet (Shakespeare).

    It stinks that Halloween is on a Sunday. I can't take off work on Monday so no alcohol for Dawny.

    Here's a little Halloween cheer from good ol' Landover Baptist Church! ;)

    Will Jesus Sling Little Children Into Hell For Celebrating Halloween?
    A Word From Our Pastor

    Quite frankly, the answer is, absolutely yes! The Bible teaches us that Jesus Christ is very choosy when it comes to picking people to live with Him for eternity. Why else would He refer to His followers as the chosen people if He wasn't choosy? The fact that He initially chose the Jews, who, out of all the folks on the planet, were the ones who winded up killing Him, only underscores that the Lord has learned the hard way that it pays to be even more selective in picking folks to be nice to! In fact, the Bible teaches us that Jesus and His daddy (Poppa God) are so darn picky that they are going to send anyone who isn't a Truly Saved® Christian, straight to Hell. That includes every single Buddhist, Muslim, Murderer, Jew, Fornicator, Mary Worshipper, Child Molester, Hindu, Effeminate Person, Wiccan, and Idolater. To God, it doesn't matter how much blood you get on you when you reject His Word; if you don't flatter Him, your flesh is going to burn, my friend. You know, we have an expression we use here in Iowa to describe unsaved and foreign folks. We call them "trash that will not burn." Well, while I find myself using that colorful expression often, usually in sermons, it is not really accurate. Because those people who reject the Word are trash that WILL burn – burn in Hell! And the lake of fire will probably have more of those buck-toothed Chinese people in it than anyone else, since there are more of them on the planet, and most of them can't put down their rice bowls long enough to even stop to hear about the Lord Jesus.

    We are about to come upon the High Holy Day of the Catholic faith. Mary Worshipers the world over are in a tizzy preparing for Halloween. Well, "hallow" describes their souls – because the Lord Jesus has fled in disgust from their idolatrous, diseased bodies. If you are a Truly Saved® Christian, the only way you can celebrate Halloween is if you turn it into Holyween. God is looking for Holyweeners, not Halloweeners. If you'd like to find out how to become a Holyweener, follow our Ten Steps for Holyweeners. If you do, depending on what mood Jesus is in, he probably won't flay you alive in Hell like he is going to do to most of His children.

    How about a big poster-sized graph of any major stock exchange index for the past two years? I know that'd scare me.
