I've got up a lighted spider's web and a ghost carrying a Jack'o'lantern in the window (bought at Woolworth's 40 years ago). Not dressing up, just handing out candy, but next party I'm going to, I intend to dress up as a cigar-smoking Nun.
I don't dress up as an adult. I am very supportive of my grand-kiddies enjoying the event. I give them nice trick or treat bags to use on Halloween night and I put in glow sticks and other fun things they like. If they need help with costumes and pumpkins, I step in with pleasure.
Unfortunately, we don't get trick or treat kiddies in my mature little neighborhood now. The street is small and the kids have all grown to adulthood. We have two nice teens on the street but they don't celebrate anymore.
Hubby is the trick or treater in our fam......kids want to be done after just a few houses....but daddy wants to go all night..... he really does have issues with getting free stuff, especially food! So I try to indulge him..... Issue's from his childhood, but thats another story.
I'll parade my power rangers around durring the day....then pass out candy to trick or trearers, until daddy brings them home.

My birthday is the 4th of November, so we're having a big adult halloween party this Saturday. Going to make a big batch of "fight milk." (cheap vodka cocktails.) I have a 5 year old son, he's going as Linus from Peanuts, so that makes me Sally. My fiance shall be PigPen. Cheapest costumes I have had to date, I am excited.
