Halloween celebration

Postby ranchersswiss » Wed Oct 18, 2017 10:45 am

Halloween is just around the corner. What are your plans for this year? Any additional characters to your decorations? What will you be wearing?

We don't celebrate it. Live so far out and so far back, no one comes around here anyway.
It's kinda like Christmas lights..no one but wife and I see 'em anyway, but most years, I do put some up because wife likes them.

We don't do outside displays for Halloween, but we do Christmas lights. Our little guy states we need them so Santa :santa: can find our house. When he stops getting excited for the Jolly Old Fat Guy we'll be done putting them up, but I'm going to keep going strong until he fades.

We turn the lights off and lock the doors. Traffic on my road will be bumper to bumper. I could give out $200 in candy if I wanted to. And I don't want to. We mostly don't celebrate it at all. The kids will probably be dressed up at the church fall festival.

we're going to have my nieces over for a hay ride and cookout with our kids. We invited some other family over but no one really likes to be outside anymore so oh well.

Save your candy and rid yourself of your surplus brussel sprouts and give the children something healthy - possibly even organic. Do your part to fight childhood obesity and diabetes. Parents should applaud you. However, removing toilet paper can be a pain so you may want to stay the course. :lol2:

the names of about a dozen guests on them and stuck them to the front and back of his shirt.

Out of topic this time but related to Halloween. I recently read about therapy costs nowadays. It SCARES me to think that some insurances would not cover mental health issues. Is this true? https://www.betterhelp.com/advice/therapy/can-i-afford-to-see-a-counselor-how-much-does-therapy-cost/
