Re: Wacky Wednesday

  • 1) Do you get Trick or Treaters at your house?  A few

    2) Did you decorate for Halloween? nope

    3)What is your favorite Holiday?  I like ones like Columbus day and Veterans day because it is a day off of work but you don' t have to buy presents or get together to celebrate with family.  Bah humbug.

  • 1) Do you get Trick or Treaters at your house? Not many so we gave up since we'll be out with our daughter anyway.

    2) Did you decorate for Halloween? A little. I went all out the first year in our house and we got 5 kids. It just isn't worth it. Now it's some pumpkins and lights.

    3)What is your favorite Holiday? CHRISTMAS! I love the whole season SO MUCH!

  • 1) Do you get Trick or Treaters at your house?  Very few.  I was tempted to not buy candy this year and keep the light off.

    2) Did you decorate for Halloween?  Barely.  I've been to swamped lately.

    3)What is your favorite Holiday?  Thanksgiving.  Lots of eating and no gift giving.

    It's slippery as waterweed.
  • 1) Nope. We buy cnady and have pumpkins out, but no one ever comes. So sad.

    2) Not really, but we usually put out carved pumpkins. Not this year, though. I'm too busy watching the world series. :)

    3) Christmas. I enjoy finding that perfect gift for other people. Plus I get a couple weeks off of work.

  • 1) Do you get Trick or Treaters at your house?  Not a one.

    2) Did you decorate for Halloween? More just for Fall in general, not specifically Halloween. Some pumpkins and mums out front. I have some black glitter jack-o-lanterns in the entryway.

    3)What is your favorite Holiday? Easter, all the pastels and ham. ;)  Love it!

  • 1) Do you get Trick or Treaters at your house? We are Halloween Scrooges.  I don't like scary costumes or people knocking on my door, so we turn our lights off and watch scary movies in bed on Halloween.  A few people always try ringing the bell anyway, but we ignore.

    2) Did you decorate for Halloween? Nope

  • 1) Do you get Trick or Treaters at your house?
    No, our part of the street is too busy.

     
    2) Did you decorate for Halloween?
    A little bit, we don't got all out though.

    3)What is your favorite Holiday?'
    Christmas

  • 1) Do you get Trick or Treaters at your house?  It's hit or miss. I'm hoping for not a lot so I can eat the leftover candy

    2) Did you decorate for Halloween? Nope. We were going to carve pumpkins, but haven't gotten around to it.

    3)What is your favorite Holiday? Thanksgiving, because I love to eat all the food, but the holiday itself tends to stress me out.

  • 1) Do you get Trick or Treaters at your house? We just moved into our first home in September, so I have no idea! I bought a bunch of candy that we liked just in case we had a bunch left.

    2) Did you decorate for Halloween? No time. Just put plain pumpkins out.

    3)What is your favorite Holiday? Hands down, Thanksgiving. Food, food, and being thankful for food and leftover food.

    1) Do you get Trick or Treaters at your house?


    Yes, we haven't had decent weather on Halloween since we moved here so the turnout hasn't been the greatest.

    2) Did you decorate for Halloween?


    A little. We have our mantel decorated and the kids decorated their playroom.

    3)What is your favorite Holiday?

    It is between Christmas and Halloween. I have always liked Halloween. It was/is such a fun holiday. I love Christmas, but it is such a busy time of year now and we don't live near family, so it lessens my enjoyment slightly.

  • 1) Do you get Trick or Treaters at your house?
    This will be my first Halloween at my new place so I'm not sure. I'll probably put out a little bowl of candy for them. 

    2) Did you decorate for Halloween? 
    No. I hate Halloween actually. Love to see the tail end of it every year. 

    3)What is your favorite Holiday?
    Thanksgiving. Family, feasting, no obligatory gift giving. Very close second is Christmas.

  • 1) Do you get Trick or Treaters at your house? This is our first year at this house, but our neighbor says we usually only get a few. :(

    2) Did you decorate for Halloween? Nope. I procrastinate decorating outside and then forget to do it at all.

    1) Do you get Trick or Treaters at your house? -- we haven't, but this is the first year Trick or treating has been pushed by commercial enterprises here so I'm not sure.  I'm not preparing for any either way though.

    2) Did you decorate for Halloween? -- Nope.

    3) What is your favorite Holiday? -- I like Christmas, but not for the gifts, for the joyfulness of the season.

  • 1. No trick or treaters, our street is too busy and our driveway is too long for anyone to want to walk up
    2. Yes, I decorate for Halloween
    3. Thanksgiving. It's a good family holiday but without the pressure of having to shop for gifts
    Whether or not you find your own way, you're bound to find some way. If you happen to find my way, please return it, as it was lost years ago. I imagine by now it's quite rusty.”

  • 1) We get TONS of trick or treaters. It usually takes us less than an hour to hand out all our candy, then we turn the lights off.

    2) Not really. I'm not a big holiday decorator in general. We did get a few pumpkins, and we carved the big pumpkin tonight.

    3) Definitely Thanksgiving.

  • 1) Do you get Trick or Treaters at your house?  Yes.  We usually run out of candy within half an hour. 

    2) Did you decorate for Halloween?  No, not really.  Just a few little pumpkins inside. 

    3)What is your favorite Holiday?  It's a tie between Thanksgiving (food and DD's birthday) and Christmas.  DD will be 4 this year and she is STOKED about every holiday.  Should be so much fun.  I love holiday season!!

  • 1) Do you get Trick or Treaters at your house?  A medium amount, it used to be a lot better but so many of our neighbors are grouches now that not as many kids come down our street. 

    2) Did you decorate for Halloween?  I do a mix of fall/Halloween so I can stretch most of it through Thanksgiving, but it's mostly inside.  Outside we just have some lighted pumpkins and orange twinkle lights. 

    3)What is your favorite Holiday?  CHRISTMAS.  I seriously don't understand all of you haters and your aversion to gift-giving.  I ADORE gift giving and finding the perfect thing for all my family/friends. And if there's someone I don't feel like giving a gift to... I just don't give them one, or I spend literally NO time or effort on it.

  • 1) Do you get Trick or Treaters at your house?
    We don't get any here. We live at the top of a hill, so I guess nobody wants to walk up it.

    2) Did you decorate for Halloween?
    Just our pumpkins.

    3)What is your favorite Holiday?
    Christmas
