any plans for Halloween? I know many kiddies will be out in full force in trick or treating..filling bellies with sweets, getting sugar rush and cavities -the usual stuff. we will be turning off the lights and holding our breathes to simulate "that there is no one at home" candy prices where iam have risen. bagged candy that has more than 30-80 pieces are priced around 11 to 13 dollars. its not worth it.

It would be an awesome thing to have the Finnish version of Halloween; Kekri, reactivated.

The church put such harsh punishment on people for celebrating the pagan feast of Kekri that they managed to banish it from Finnish tradition and memory. sad2.gif

I should probably carve a turnip instead.

Yep....Halloween is one of my most important days of the year, along with my birthday and walpurgisnacht.

We start the day with our favourite breakfast, then when the little ones are at school & college we get the feast ready (I always take Halloween off work).
This year we are having Chicken, Beef and Ostrich, with loads of veggies, rice and potatoes, and of course lots of different types of cake.

Then we put on our nicest favourite clothes.

When the children get back we start to eat...all are welcome, (our friends are just about getting used to our Halloween celebrations now) and you can take as much or as little as you like and just keep picking at the food until you go to bed!

If the little ones want to dress up in costume and go trick or treating, our eldest (18 year old) likes to take them.

When the children are in bed, the drink starts to flow.

"My life consists of swinging around on poles, using billion dollar satellites to find tupperware hidden in the woods, overdosing on Mighty Boosh, Monty Python and Reeves & Mortimer, eating, working, and occasionally attempting to be an adult"

Oh walpurgis is important, but midsummer even more so beerbong.gif

People have Halloween parties here, I personally scared the crap out of a bunch of kids at a Halloween party some 20 years ago with an impromptu costume.
I hope I didn't traumatize them too much damned.gif

Any chance to get drunk and dress up is a valid reason to party

No plans, we are not the dress up then get drunk at party types, so maybe off to dinner and the casino for us. But if we do get the trick or treat vibes, then maybe I'll make some trash bag spider webs; quick and easy.

Well according to ye olde kekri tradition you had to get drunk. The drunker the better to ensure a good harvest for next year.

The elements of this tradition was split into both yule and new year 13.gif

Quote:At harvest time, stores of food were bulging, and there was no stinginess when celebrating the autumn feast. Once the work of the year was done, it was time to eat, drink, and dance.
At least the man of the house was expected to get as intoxicated as possible so that the grain harvest for the next year would be as big as possible.

Unfortunately they removed the original article, but thankfully I've posted it before
