  Hey people, anyone off to a halloween party tonight (Or equivalent celebration, in Wales we call it wear masks and torment the elderly night i think).
A couple of my friends and i are going as the characters form M*A*S*H which should be a laugh, I'm going as Hawkeye (yay!) we also have a Hunnicut, Trapper John and the best Darned Radar next to Gary Burkoff. Sadly our Klinger dropped out to go as KISS and our Magaret Houlihan is now going as a witch, but hey, it should be fun anyway.

  My old homeschoolers' group stopped having Halloween parties because of Christian busybodies. Sux.

  Actually my roomate and I are hosting one at my parents house (they're out of town and offered). They have a huge pole barn that's insulated, heated, and has a bathroom. Its taken us two weeks to decorate, but it looks so cool. We are making scary punch (puch that foams and looks sorted like green slime but tastes like spodie)we a got a house DJ who going to DJ and do his own light set up. We even have a bobing for apples set up and prizes for costumes. The only requirement is $2 at the door (to off set liquor and decoration costs) and you have to have a costume. For everyone who shows up without one we have masks that you are required to wear. If anyone live i my neck of the woods (Hayden Lake, Idaho) you certainly invited.

  I'm not going to a party tonight, but I'm going to one Saturday night. The people who are having it couldn't have it tonight because too many of their friends work on friday. We're required to dress up, and they're borrowing decorations from a haunted house they volunteer at, so it should be fun. First me and a friend were going to go as modern-day teenage vampires-dress like goths with vampire teeth. But we couldn't find good enough teeth, so now I'm a girl who was just bitten by a vampire and is still in the process of becoming a vampire herself. Its strange, but it works. We're going to put bite marks on our necks, and we're trying to convince a friend of ours to go as the vampire that bit us...he doesn't want to do it though.

  There were some haloween parties here but since it's an american thing brought to europe, belgium at least, to bring more money in the pockets of ppl who profit from stuff like this (and others like christmas and easter and so on)

So, ofcourse, I'm against it and not celebrating it.

  The story of Halloween goes back over 2000 years to the ancient Celts. Druidic priests regarded the day as the end of the year. Not only was it their day for celebrating the year's harvest, but October 31 itself was also the day of Samhain, a festival for honoring the dead. In order to appease the wandering spirits they believed roamed at night, the Celtic priests made fires in which they burned sacrifices, made charms, and cast spells.

Portions of the Celtic holiday of the dead eventually passed into Christian culture after the Romans conquered the Celts and tried to bring the Celts into the "Christian fold." It eventually became apparent to the church leaders that the Celts, in spite of their conformation to some aspects of Christian culture, were stubbornly sticking with elements of their old religion.

So, in the seventh century AD, the church moved its All Saints' Day, a holiday for honoring early Christian martyrs, from a day in May to November 1, thus associating it with the old Druid death rituals of October 31. By the tenth century A.D., the Catholic Church had added a new holiday, All Souls' Day. This day was set aside to honor all of the dead, not just the early Christian Saints.

Celebration of Halloween came to America with early Irish and Scottish immigrants. By then, though, it had already started to lose its mysterious overtones and was becoming merely a harvest celebration: a night of bobbing for apples, eating popcorn, and telling ghost stories around a bonfire. It was already changing into the holiday for children with which we in the 20th century are so familiar.

sounds kind of like the party i went to. me and a friend were vampire victims, another was a 1940's pimp, there was a policewoman, a few cats, etc. the best costume of all was my friend who was a nurse. She had a white pleather little nurse outfit, a red push-up bra, red heels, and a little hat. the guys had more boring costumes...baseball player, army dude, judo master, etc.
