not my favorite.
bar-hopping on Halloween is cool, though, cause it's kind of a warp-zone... you'll see a pregnant nun sipping on a draft and smoking a cigarette, or a 6-foot-tall banana and a clown fist-fighting and rolling around on the concrete just outside the door. costumes DO liven things up.
same thing for Halloween parties, although those are usually more civilized.
i don't eat chocolate, so leftover candy isn't something for me to smile over, and may i say one more time that
it's all wrong. earth tones are not my thing.
bring me winter in all its snowy glory and cool tones and i'm a happy woman.
if i see one more rust-colored leaf or centerpiece or pumpkin i'm going to have a braekdown.
i'm not even in the mood to throw the party i wanted. and i'm always in the mood to throw a party.

i believe that life would not be complete sans comfy 'ol tee-shirts, the Golden Girls, and the color pink
& rock on, PITTSBURGH-

I love Halloween too! I am also a Christian, and I don't see any conflict there. I don't "celebrate" Halloween--not into pagan rituals, etc.. I think of Halloween as a fun time to dress up and for kids to trick-or-treat. I don't care if the origins were some pagan thing--that's not what it is now. It is just a time to have fun. We all need a chance to get goofy now and then.

The pagan celebration on Halloween (Samhain) celebrates the 3rd and final harvest of the year. Also it's the end of the pagan year, kinda like New Year's Eve.
