witchy-I have tons of Samhain related activities and recipes, if you are interested.
I love the idea of the warped childhood character theme party. Is there any way you could get a hold of one of those huge Care Bear costumes? You could change it to "Hooks a Lot Bear", "Crystal Meth Bear", etc.
We went out last night to buy new decorations. It is a thing we do every year-get one or two things new. That way, 20 years from now we have one of those Clark Griswold houses.
We bought our trick or treat candy last night, as well. We always try to be one of the "good houses" where you get a handful.
Did any of you guys ever get the house that gave you pennies when you were a kid?
We try not to be THAT house.
I have full moon and dark moon ritual this month, then our anniversary on the 23rd, my birthday on the 30th, and Halloween obviously the 31st. We are doing the Addams Family AGAIN this year-for about the 3rd time. We can't help it, we are typecast that way-my husband looks much like Gomez, and we have a pale, buzz cut little boy, and an older girl with dark hair/eyes that wears braids a lot. The costume just "fits". We even have Pubert-because Saber, our 1 year old, is dark haired/eyed like his daddy. I am the only one who really has to work a whole lot with makeup/wig, etc.
DH has the black shirt/bow tie/vest and the vintage smoking jacket and black/white wing tips. I usually use liquid liner to make his moustache, and he uses a cigar. Jas has the black velvet dress with white satin collar and cuffs.
Raiden has the black striped tee, the black school uniform shorts, and the black dress socks and shoes. Pubert even has the costume, and I throw a little Ben Nye on his face to pale it, and add the liner moustache.
The neighborhood loves it.
I am trying to get my mother to come over to pass our treats while we are out, and we'll finish when we get back.
We actually do the Samhain celebration by using the cycles/witch calendar, so the equinox/solstice/holidays are sometimes a day or so off from what the traditional calendar has. So our Samhain celebration will be a day or two after Halloween. I'll have to check.
