    Since we're not having a Halloween party this year, you can post all images relating to Halloween here.

    It can be costumes, pumpkins, decorations, anything but songs since @Joe Riley has that market.

    I may actually make myself this cheese quesadilla! An easy one for the little ones too...something they like, at least mine do.

    I guess most people know that Halloween came from the Celtic or Druid holiday Samhain which was the chasing out of the evil spirits. Halloween gets bigger and better every year, and I love it! I just wish I had trick or treaters. It would be the best thing as far as I am concerned. That reminds me I think I am going to get out my string of lighted pumpkins. if not now??? When???

    You can come to my house and hand out candy, I did buy some. It's just too hard with Pickles barking nonstop... I'm dreading it.

    I used to enjoy it also. In fact when I first got married and we lived on the 3rd floor in an apt in Chicago and I was probably about 2 months pregnant we went back to my hometown of Pittsburgh so I could enjoy Halloween.

    My younger sisters were 10 and 5 so it was much fun...they dressed up and I went around with them.

    That looks really good, @Chrissy Cross. If I made it, I might put some salsa verde coming out of the mouth he he.

    I love Trick or Treat, but not with the people in this neighborhood. I don't like attracting the hoodlums to the house/yard/driveway, since the stray kitties tend to live there, and I'm sure kids traipsing all around will/would agitate the already excitable dogs I'm surrounded by, so I'll keep the lights all off, and hang out up here in the office, watching scary movies. I used to stock up on candy every year of the 9 I lived in the nice apartments, but no one ever showed up. I've handed it out a few times here, but the kids are rough on the gate, and come back multiple times because they're greedy little beggars, so now I don't bother. I still enjoy the holiday, though, and this is a cool thread.

    There is a house here that has this at Halloween. The first time I saw it, I nearly ran off the road laughing.

    20161030_094415_resized.jpg I had a hard time getting the picture because there were so many tree branches in between, so it's sort of blurry, but this was a gorgeous picture in real life. The sun was shining on the dew on the spiderweb, making it glisten. I don't know if particular types of spiders make different types of webs, but there are webs all over the place this year. I keep walking through them out front, out back, on the balcony, and even across the driveway. I do love the look of dew along the strands of the webs, though. Happy Halloween, y'all! By the way, that's the ONE decent fence on this whole property. The back fence was knocked down during Ike, so someone replaced it with this. I'd love to have these on all sides, rather than the falling down ones, but at least I have one good one.

    Good ones @Shirley Martin but I expect that from you. :)

    @Diane Lane , I wouldn't want to go with neighbors like you have either. Yes, the salsa verde adds to it, lol.

    Also, is that your fence? That's an awesome spiderweb.

    We will be home and got a small bag of candy over the weekend.

    Last year only had one Tricker or Treater. She was a little neighbor girl dressed in a beautiful Frozen costume. Not many young kids live here. Complex doesn't even have a Halloween Party anymore.

    Any leftover candy will be given to the Rental Office. We sure can't eat it!

    Spider webs are beautiful. I made a video of one in the bush just in front of my kitchen window. The sunlight was making it sparkle with colors and the wind was making it dance. I played some music and recorded it. I don't think we can post videos to here from Photobucket. If we could I'd love to show it to y'all.
