You can always help the Halloween spirit wherever you are by "boo-ing" people (http://www.halloween.com/how-to-boo-for-halloween.php). Obviously Thanksgiving wouldn't make sense, but Halloween is good anywhere!

I don't live in America so I don't have the same build-up of Halloween and Thanksgiving as some of you guys, but I really enjoy this time of year nonetheless. I think it is the fact that Christmas is around the corner but I love the autumnal weather, especially on a crisp, clear, sunny day. :D


Halloween unfortunately isn't too big a deal round my way, but perhaps this year I will get a little bit more involved! At the very least I will celebrate it in the knowledge that is one of the big signposts on the way to Christmas. :)

Some friends of mine just moved from the US to Belgium, and I am not sure how much Halloween is celebrated there (except on base) but I am waiting for a report to find out!

I have a printout on my office wall of a Christmas tree with the words "______ days before Christmas" underneath it. I've done this since last year. It's actually my officemates who made the printouts for me because they know I'm very fond of the Christmas season.

Only 64 days more to go!

63 days, 11 hours, 18 minutes, 30 seconds here. ;-)

I like having the countdown too on the internet. It is fun to see it getting closer. Halloween is way to close now though!

yeah, halloween is close! I enjoy it, but I'm not really a halloween kind of person. To me, Halloween means November, and November means the start of the xmas season!!!!
It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas...:)

I'm not really a Halloween person too, though I enjoy seeing the decorations and the different costumes people wear. November for me means Christmas is a few weeks away!

Yes, only a few more days until Halloween then the Christmas season will really start. I like both, personally. ;-)

I'm always in the Christmas mood.

I have a jazz CD of Christmas music that doesn't sound like it, unless you listen close to the melody.

I have in the car 365.

YAY! The radio station started playing Christmas music! It's usually not until after Thanksgiving, so what a surprise when I turned on the radio this morning! :D
