Mary asks…

Question about Halloween 2 (2010)?

does anyone else think that they should forget this movie was ever made and make a different Halloween 2? Seriously, i can’t be the only one that hated this movie. Rob Zombie did a great job on the first one, but he really destroyed this movie, i think he should give it one more try.

answers:

First, let me say that I agree with you on the count of Rob Zombie’s Halloween 2 being a serious let down – just awful. The plot was all over the place, his wife can’t act but was still given a huge role, and somehow Michael Myers was completely under-utilized.

That being said, I do NOT want them to re-launch, make-a-sequel-to, or do anything else with the Halloween movie franchise. The original Halloween is still, arguably, the best horror movie of all time. The remake was actually pretty good, too. The direction that Rob Zombie took the character’s background and making him more human and less boogey-man was interesting. (And then he ruined it completely in H2).

The original sequels were horrible, the new sequel was horrible – it’s just so ridiculously hard to continue a horror movie into a franchise (even more so than other genres). So, while I will applaud Rob Zombie for updating the original idea into a modern setting and humanizing the killer, I just don’t think it lends itself well to any kind of sequel and at the end of the day, Hollywood needs to stop revisiting the same old tired scripts.

Joseph asks…

Halloween costumes for 2 girls?

My school puts on a haunted house every Halloween weekend, and my friend and I are guides. Last year we just threw on random clothes and fake piercings, but this year we want a theme (Our friends were pirates)
So does anyone know of a good costume idea for 2 16 year old girls? It’s the school, so we can’t be sleezy, and we don’t want to wear giant outfits like salt and pepper shakers or something. And we don’t want to cross-dress.
We’ve searched a lot of costume websites, and all the group ideas are for 3+.
Help please?

Richard asks…

which is better saw 5 or halloween 2?

we don’t know which one to watch.

answers:

Halloween 2 was awful, if you’re referring to the new one.

Nancy asks…

In Rob Zombie’s version of Halloween 2, why…?

Was Annie naked when Laurie found her in the bathroom? Because in her chase scene, she had clothes on. Did Michael just tear the clothes off her or did he rape her?

answers:

It is unknown exactly what happened during her chase scene because it bounces back and forth from the chase to Laurie and her friend. It is possible that whilst being slammed around by Michael her clothes fell off, and it is also possible that he raped her (although he never raped any of his other female victims [Lynda in Halloween 1, Annie in Halloween 1, Holly in Halloween 2, and Mia in Halloween 2]).

Your Questions About Halloween Fun Facts For Kids

Mandy asks…

What can a Muslim do on Halloween?

I’m not gonna go into the details on the rulings on us celebrating the holiday. But let me summarize it for the rest of you. Do Christians ever celebrate Ramadan or Eid? I rest my case. But still, I feel kinda isolated having to turn in before dark so I don’t get egged on the street. [Happened to my brother many years ago, we were on our way to Friday Prayers and someone threw eggs AT HIM. Plus he is autistic. I don't remember how he took that. It was Halloween that day too.] I don’t have to worry about going to Halloween parties because I didn’t get invited to any. Also I went to one a few years ago at college and it sucked. [I had to be there to get intern hours as an intern in the Student Center.] The worst part is the kids that come to my door for candy. Instead of them getting a handful of candy, I have to pretend no one’s home and they have to walk away from my door empty handed. Can I at least give out some candy, not as part of Halloween specifically but rather just being neighborly? No wonder my neighbors think we suck. But besides that and watching every Halloween special known to man, what else can I do to have a little but not too much fun? In years prior, our own holidays like Ramadan and Eid were also during this time so I paid no mind to Halloween. Then college happened and I saw how fun and yummy it can really be. But going back to being a better Muslim isn’t easy. And It will be something I miss. What do I do now?

answers:

Halloween is not a religious holiday. In fact most strict Christian don’t celebrate it. I am not familiar with your religious beliefs, but I wouldn’t think it would create a problem to hand out candy to children. Sorry I couldn’t give you more information than that. Sorry to hear about your brother but there are bad people everywhere.

James asks…

Need your help! what are fun things to do in St. Louis?

answers:

The City Museum is amazing, not like any museum you’ve ever seen before! Lots of fun both for kids as well as adults who wish they were kids (like to climb on things and play with stuff). There’s a young nightlife scene there (16-21 yr olds I hear) and I believe they’re open late on the weekends (til 1 or 2am).

St Louis has lots of great festivals just about all year long, this depends on when you’ll visit or show your guests around. Google St Louis festivals for info.

Forest Park is the largest landscaped metropolitan park in the country and hosts lots of great things to do like museums, boating, a great restaurant, live outdoor theater, gardens, and the BEST ZOO in the country which is totally free! You just missed the hot air balloon race and balloon glow the night before (which is a photographer’s dream) that is held in Forest Park every year. Not to mention the park has an amazing history as the site of the 1904 World’s Fair and the beautiful architecture that still stands is entertaining in itself, I think.

And speaking of architecture, the incredible mansions built near the turn of the century which surround Forest Park and are sprinkled throughout the city are breathtaking. I could spend an entire day just walking or driving past these houses and imagining what life would have been like inside of them over 100 years ago. There is a walking tour of some of these homes every spring.

In fact, read up on the history of St Louis, it has possibly THE most storied past in the country – a self-lead tour of historical sites would be something unique to do. What’s incredible about this place is that many of the buildings and sites of these stories still stand today and can be visited – that is a rare thing in the United States. I am a native of Los Angeles and you’d be hard pressed to find buildings like the ones you find in St Louis there – in LA people like nothing more than to tear down and build anew, destroying the cities tangible past.

Anyway, a tour of the Anheiser Busch brewery is another thing you can only do in St Louis. Since halloween is approaching, the many “haunted houses” are definite fun. I especially like the one held at the old Lemp Brewery/ mansion/ secret underground tunnel, another historical place with a scary past of it’s own, as it’s one of the few that can legitimately claim it’s a REAL haunted house.

The Central West End is a great place to walk, shop and have coffee or ice cream, and so is the Loop in University City. The Kirkwood Farmer’s Market as well as the Soulard Farmer’s Market are worth seeing. Tower Grove Park is great, again surrounded by beautiful old homes, and you’ll often find live music and festivals there since it’s a young, hipster neighborhood. And the Botanical Gardens across the street are so much more enjoyable that you’d ever imagine a “garden” do be! Another great neighborhood and park (again, AMAZING homes plucked from the past) is Lafayette Square.

St Louis is a pretty awesome city in fact, if you just open your eyes and look around. There’s lots of great live music here too so check websites for local bars and clubs to see which bands are playing. If you haven’t heard of them, that doesn’t mean they suck! Be adventurous and try something new:)

Charles asks…

how is it that miley is a christian, yet celebrates halloween?

i am not judging her, cos i really want to know the answer. i’ve been a christian for 22 years (my whole life), and i grew up NEVER to celebrate halloween, because i’m a christian.. but then i see christians celebrating the event, and it doesn’t make sense to me… I am looking for devoted christian people to come here and answer my question.. please dont say anything untrue just because you’re an atheist or watever. This question is only aimed at christians.. please explain.. cos when i get married, if it is okay, i want my children to have wat i didnt have but secretly wanted.. as a christian, we tend to have to sacrifice things in life..i thought halloween was one of them, now im not so sure..
i wish people would actually listen when i say that i want CHRISTIANS ONLY to comment here. and please don’t knock miley cyrus.. i am not here to discuss her personal life, i just used her halloween thing as an example, cos i was reading up on her last halloween escapade.
actually.. i think i may have found my answer:

As Christians you and I are placed in this world to be a light in a world of darkness. There is no lasting benefit to ignore a holiday that exists around us, but it also does harm to celebrate Halloween as it has originated and grown over the centuries.

My suggestion? Christians should be teaching their children (age appropriately) that:

there is a spiritual world filled with goodness from God and evil from Satan (Eph. 2:1-10);
life with Christ has power over darkness (I John 4:4); and
those who celebrate Halloween either are unaware of its roots, or are intentionally promoting a world where evil is lauded and viewed as an ultimate power.

answers:

People can just try and sweep aside the fact that Halloween is a holiday steeped in pagan false religious traditions and origins (as well as spiritistic, or satanic) and say “oh it’s just a fun time for the kids and they get candy”…….but that’s a load of garbage. God is well aware of how the holiday started and nothing about it merits his approval.

Whether someone intends to observe or celebrate Halloween as a “religious event”…….that doesn’t take away from the fact that it is still a false religious holiday, and you’re still taking part in it by following the customs associated with it. To say “well I celebrate Halloween, but not the religious aspect of it” is simply an excuse to keep celebrating it……showing a person doesn’t have a true love for God and what he approves of or disapproves of.

answers:

I love these questions and I know you didn’t mention extra details, but I’m going to make the kids a family and their surname is Parker.

● Christian Oliver Parker. “Ian” (18)
(Ian is the eldest and super protective of his siblings. He has the biggest heart you will ever meet and always puts a smile on everyone’s face with one of his dumb impressions. He’s slightly geeky with his love of Batman but he’s got is head screwed on and is about to go to uni to get his teaching degree. He wants to be an English teacher in foreign countries).

♥ Johanna Elise Parker. “Joey” (15) *Twin
(Joey is a very serious soul, and very determine to get the best out of her life and make the best out of it too so she’s basically the opposite of her twin brother Ezra. She’s always thinking and sometimes forgets that some things are meant to be fun and she can be a bit nosy at times but Joey does means well and she also has a dominant fierce side that comes to light over her siblings. She wants to be a lawyer and fight for justice).

● Ezra Samuel Parker. (15) *Twin
(Ezra is the most wilfull of the Bradshaw clan and does what he wants, when he wants to. He’s a free spirit and hates responsibility and never commits to anything. He’s naturally smart and gets good enought grades in school but he doesn’t try especially hard with them. Ezra lives for the moment and doesn’t think about the the consequences even after. He loves doing adventerous things and has went swimming with sharks, bungee jumping and desperatley wants to go paragliding. He would like to be an outdoor sporting instructor. His twin sister is Joey).

● Elijah Julius Parker. “Eli” (9)
(Eli is the most quiet child of the Bradshaw brood, but he’s a brilliant listener and even at his young age, is always helping his siblings with their problems and has a deep bond with his older sister Joey. Eli is a adorable and is dotted on by all of his siblings. He loves reading and reads at a level way above his age and his favourite story is The Adventures Of Tom Sawyer which was read to him by his sisters and now he can read it by himself. Aswell as reading, Eli is also very curious and loves going exploring and finding out facts. He’s a huge Doctor Who fan and for Halloween he went as the 11th Doctor with little sister Jac as Amy Pond. He loves astronomy and is fascinated by space and wants to be an astronaut).

♥ Jacqueline Sophia Parker. “Jac” (8)
(Jac is basically one of the boys. She loves the outdoors and getting muddy, running about and playing soccer. Her original nickname was actually Lynny but when she was 4 she announced that Jac sounded better than Lynny and she’s been Jac ever since and now none of the family can imagine her as anything else. She’s very cheeky and bubbly, always happy and lively and never a bad word to say about anyone. She’s a soccer fanatic, always kicking a ball about with her brothers. Her best friend is her brother Eli who is only 11 months older than her and the two of them are as thick as thieves though Jac is more energetic. Charlie’s goal in life is to be a pro football player, the first woman player ever on the male teams and if anyone can achieve that then it’s Jac Bradshaw).

Donna asks…

Need help with Halloween party?

I’m planning a Halloween party and need a few tricks to scare the pants of people. Any ideas?

answers:

Good ways to really draw people into a scare is to have them participate. A good way to do this is to dim the lights and pass a candle or an object around the room. Who ever holds the object must tell a ghost story and then he/she passes it along and the other person must keep the story going.

I always went online and printed out local ghost stories and put them around the room for inspiration.

Another way is to play a game….like a Quija board or something else.

We played a game one year called hallowed fate in which everyone writes a fate onto a card and puts it into a hat. You sit in a circle and a person spins a bottle. The person who spins the bottle reads the fate of the person the bottle points to. The key is to tell everyone to write a gory way to die onto the paper without telling them fully about the game. You also fill everybody in on the fact that a group of kids all died playing this game…..(urban legend)………I think……

These games may not be good for people under 18.

Have fun
Happy Halloween

With the lights dimmed this game plays on people’s fears.

Michael asks…

The Haunted History of Halloween Youtube video-Who has seen the history of Halloween on YouTube.com?

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AQXr9yaCAIA
I love Halloween, but as you can see I LOVE Christmas even more, I love Halloween because of all the candy you get to eat till your belly aces, I don’t do trick or treating I am 20 that means I am wayy too old for that, trick or treaters come to my families door, wer leave the porch light on that means any house with a potch light on is giving away candy, my family NEVER puts poison in the candy, our candy is bought fresh from the store, I love that part of Halloween, but a couple of years ago, I got hit on the side of my head with one of those frozen eggs that you put in the freezer days before Halloween, I am glad I have graduated from high school, and you know how high schools get around Halloween time, I mean the students they get crazy,I am glad I graduated in June of last year, I don’t even consider Halloween a national annual holiday like I do Christmas, Christmas is much better,except for rocks kids and teens put in their snow balls.

answers:

Pretty interesting… I love Halloween! It is my favorite holliday! In fact I got married on Halloween and had a costume wedding! We still hold the torch of best wedding ever for 6 years now. I LOVE to dress up, trick-or-treat , and got to Halloween parties! It’s just so much fun (I’m 25). You get to be something you would never be, laugh, and get spooked! It’s also the most beautiful time of the year! Nice video

Donald asks…

what does halloween really mean?

what is halloween really is it really about ghosts and goblins and dressing up as ghouls and getting candy.is halloween a satanic holiday,if so do people become more vulnerable to demonic possession?how can you tell if someone is possessed by the devil or demon?is halloween an open invitation for aliens to kidnap us and turn us into zombies.do you feel you might be possessed by evil spirits?

answers:

As far as what it means today? It means kids can dress up and collect candy. The rest of your questions are silly. Halloween was All Hallow’s Eve. People made it out to be scary. To dress up and scare evil spirts away. Go to the library and check out a book on it if you want the facts because this could get lengthly. But basically, it’s just a fun night to be whatever you want to be. I wouldn’t worry about all the rest of that stuff.

Richard asks…

are christians aloud to celebrate halloween?

answers:

Well, it began as a Christian holiday – All Saints Eve (All Hallows Eve) which was the eve before All Saints Day. Later, the church added All Souls Day to honor the dead. There have been many pagan, folk, and secular elements that have mixed with All Saints and Souls to create new holidays: Halloween, Day of the Dead, Ghost Suppers, and so on, but none of those influences were Satanic or evil in any way. That is a myth that really gained popularity in the 1970′s, and was perpetuated by Hollywood. Those who claim Halloween is Satanic cannot offer any actual historical evidence to support this idea.

There are those who say Halloween is entirely pagan because the version that became popular in the U.S. Was heavily influenced by Irish and Scottish folklore and their feast day known as Samhain. In fact, Halloween lost its religious character in Ireland (despite Ireland being largely Catholic), then became even more secular when it was brought to North America by immigrants in the 19th century. Unlike All Saints and Souls in Europe and South America, and some of the other holidays that stemmed from the combination of pre-Christian and Christian elements (like the celebrations I mentioned above), Halloween is now considered to be a purely secular holiday.

When I was a kid Halloween parties were common in church. So don’t worry – have fun.

Mark asks…

I dont want to write to my Pen pal of 10 years anymore because all she talks about is her kids. Am I a jerk?

I have been writing to my penpal for over 10 years….she is such a nice person. The thing is, all her letters anymore go on and on about her kids.(I dont have kids & dont want them.) She sends tons of photos of her kids. I can only tell her so many times hers kids are cute. I feel like we dont have anything in common anymore. Am I terrible for not wanting to write much anymore? Its just sooo boring reading these letteres about her kids potty training, losing teeth, words they are saying, their halloween costumes, etc etc. Am I jerk I dont find her letters fun anymore?

answers:

People out grow their friends. That is a natural fact of life. Stop writing and leave it at that,

Sandy asks…

Halloween and christianity?

What is so bad about Halloween. My family they are all Christians. they used to celebrate Halloween before getting into religion. Now they don’t mention Halloween and they always say its bad but they never explain it to me. I still go to church and am a good person but I still like to have fun and celebrate Halloween. Can somebody explain to me what’s so bad about Halloween.

answers:

Ask yourself . . . If there was a celebration that was based upon what the Nazi regime did to Jews, Jehovah’s Witnesses, Gypsies, and the physically disabled . . . But . . . The way to celebrate it now was to dress up like everyone involved & pretend to reenact those horrific crimes for the fun of it . . . How would you feel about doing that . . . ?

Would you think it purely harmless fun . . . Or . . . Totally disrespectful of life & the feelings of those who went through those horrific events, many of their lives ending in gas chambers, or, starving & worked to death as slaves . . . ?

The origins of Halloween are just as unscriptural as Nazism, and very spiritistic in nature. . .
(Just one example . . . ‘Haunted houses’ may have actors dressed as surgeon & patient, with an operation in full progress with the patient *awake* . . . These kinds of things were *actually* carried out in the Nazi concentration camps . . . It was called, ‘medical research’ . . . And kids laugh at such things during Halloween!)

Halloween –and celebrations like it– are all steeped in paganism.

The apostle Paul wrote:

“I do not want you to be participants with demons.
You cannot drink the cup of the Lord and the cup of demons.”
(1 Corinthians 10:20-22, New International Version)

He also asked:

“What common interest can there be between goodness and evil? How can light and darkness share life together? How can there be harmony between Christ and the devil? What can a believer have in common with an unbeliever?” (2 Corinthians 6:14-16, Phillips)

“The Bible thus condemns the whole idea of putting a Christian mask on a pagan practice!

Also, the Bible warns against the practice of spiritism. (Deuteronomy 18:10-12)

While it is true that the vast majority of those who celebrate Halloween would claim to spurn Satanic practices, we should, nevertheless, be aware that historically this holiday has *very close* connections with the occult. Thus, it can serve as a door leading to spiritism, especially for impressionable youths.

Pagan rites and traditions tainted by spiritism simply have no place in Christian worship.
They are far from harmless!

“Finally, there is the fact that Halloween, All Saints’ Day, and All Souls’ Day are all based on the beliefs that the dead suffer or that they can somehow bring harm to the living. However, the Bible clearly shows that such beliefs are not true, saying:

“The living are conscious that they will die;
but as for the dead, they are conscious of nothing at all.” (Ecclesiastes 9:5)

True Christianity respects God and what he tells his followers in the Bible.

They do not make light of it & cast it aside in the name of having fun . . .

“Just like someone mad that is shooting fiery missiles, arrows and death,
so is the man that has tricked his fellowman and has said: ‘Was I not having fun?’”
(Proverbs 26:18, 19)

Your Questions About Halloween Horror Nights

Helen asks…

Can you complete Halloween Horror Nights in Orlando in one night?

I am trying to plan a trip to Orlando for the weekend of Oct 9th and 10th I was wondering if I should buy tickets for both nights or will we complete the whole park in one night? I also wanted to buy express tickets is that a good idea? any info on the event is appreciated! thank you so much!!! =)

answers:

Halloween Horror is tons of fun, but it is the most crowded the park will be all year. I generally don’t enjoy the haunted houses too much, as the lines are always about 2 hours long (not an exaggeration at all) and they want to push as many people through as they can (because the lines are so long) and so you already see all the scary stuff happen to the people in front of you.

DEFINITELY invest in the express pass. The lines for the rides will be long, too.

Also, don’t miss the Bill and Ted show. They parody everything that’s happened in pop culture for the last year. It’s hilarious!

You could probably do it in one night. What I would say is actually the best idea is go to the park during the day and ride the rides, then go back at night to see the shows, enjoy the ambiance, and take in a haunted house or two. You could go back for a second night if you really have your heart set on seeing everything, but prepare to be frustrated, as you WILL be waiting in line for 2 hours per haunted house.

Sandra asks…

is Halloween horror nights at universal studios in Orlando fl busy on Sunday nights?

my boyfriend and i want to go to hhn in orlando and we want to go on a sunday since it is going to be cheaper. we also want to get the express passes. but since we are going on a sunday does anyone know if itll be busy? i dont want to do express passes if its not going to be busy. it would be pointless to do the express passes if its not busy.

answers:

For Halloween Horror Nights the day of the week is not as important as the proximity to Halloween. If you go in the first few nights of the event it will not be as busy. The crowds are the heaviest the weekend before Halloweeen. Halloween Horror Nights begins September 23. If you go during the month of September expect the crowds to be the lightest. I would skip the express passes if you choose to go in September.

Laura asks…

Halloween Horror Nights?

I purchased the one year annual pass a week ago, but was wondering if I pay extra to get rid of the Black Out Dates can I go attend Horror Nights or will I have to buy another ticket?

answers:

Halloween Horror Nights is a separately ticketed special event, and your Annual Pass alone does not grant you admission to the event. Buy another ticket
For a blackout date Purchase a special $30 1-day upgrade; or (2) Purchase a full upgrade to a “Premium Star” or “No Black-Out Annual Pass.

Donna asks…

How scary is Halloween Horror Nights?

Ok, so i’ve wanted to go to HHN for a couple years, but I’m someone who is very easily scared by horror movies. The weird part is i don’t let it get to me while i’m watching the movie, but without fail, no matter how stupid the movie is, i can’t get to sleep afterward. A lot of people tell me HHN is more about startling you than actually SCARING you, so i’m not sure. i don’t want to do this and regret it though, since horror has never really been my thing
people have been asking what my age is. i’m not going to disclose it completely, but i will say that i’m high school age. if that helps with your answer

answers:

You’re age on this matter really doesn’t matter. I have gone many times over the years and I have seen people that have to personally be escorted out of the haunted houses because they are really terrified and refuse to keep going on in the haunted house.However at halloween horror nights, most people do scream at least once whether it be someone jumping out at you in a haunted house,a chainsaw person chasing you, or the scareactors on the street(scaring you). In all my years of going to this event(14 to be exact) I have never scene anything that looks as well played out as this years. This year they are focusing on urban legends and your psyche so I’m sure with that new experiences will come along. I suggest going to halloween horror nights because like you I too had the problem of being affected by horror movie, but hhn(halloween horror nights) is an adreneline rush that you could either love or be terrified by.My suggestion for you is that you go,you wont regret it but just to be sure why don’t you check the website and judge for yourself:

Ken asks…

Halloween Horror Nights 17?

This year’s theme is “Carnival of Carnage” and I know that anything dealing with carnivals includes clowns. Now, my question’s the following:

My brother wants me to take him.. but in my opinion he’s a little too young for it (12) and worse of all he’s terrified of clowns. (He closes his eyes throughout the entire ‘haunted house’ rides at the fair.. go figure.)

Should I hold off until next year.. or would it be ok for me to take him this year?
Is it really as frightening as some people make it out to be?

answers:

Halloween Horror Nights, is an amazing event held at Universal Studios. It is over the top and very impressive. It is VERY REALISTIC. The suspension of belief is complete and can be terrifying. This is a PG-13 event!

I took my roommate in 2004 and she was chased by a gentleman with a chainsaw, she ran out of the park and has not stepped foot back into Universal Studios (even after offering her free tickets), so if he can’t watch the movie It without nightmares, then no this event is NOT for him.

Your Questions About Halloween Fun Facts For Kids

Joseph asks…

How to pass out candy on Halloween?

Can you pass out candy in an apartment? How about at a park in a enclosed shelter? Or can you rent an house or building for the day? Please help i am trying to plan something for Halloween and i am trying to get a head start. No rude comments please. Thanks.

answers:

My aunt said that her church did like a tailgate party in the church parking lot. They all wore costumes & handed out candy from the trunks of their cars.

Also, you could see if your recreation center is having any special events on the Saturday before for different age groups grouped together, with only non-scary costumes for the youngest. You might be able to arrange to work for them as a volunteer. Same would apply for the library if they have a pre-holiday Halloween storytime on the weekend before. Surely they could use a little extra help with a big group.

Sometimes our animal shelter has a halloween costume party for the dogs as a fund raiser. They, too, could probably use help.

Otherwise, within your apartment complex, you may have to talk to the parents to say that you’d love to see the costumes & arrange a time for them to come by. Hopefully, they’ll do it & won’t leave you waiting & waiting, not knowing if you can change into your pj’s or not. Often they take off for the mall or a popular decorated street, leaving the neighbors waiting & waiting, not knowing if anyone will be coming at all. By the way, I always give out something like balloons, or more recently, Halloween pencils & quarters. If you have a Dollar Tree store, that’s the cheapest place to get these pencils or else the plain metallic ones, which will still be good after Halloween & into Christmas. It’s not as thrilling as candy, but if there’s a poison or razor blade scare, then you’ll be safe from any trouble, regardless of what somebody mean may have done at the candy factories. (In fact, that’s why we get fewer Trick or Treaters than people used to get before.)

Last year, I put my quarters in a decorated seated skeleton in a purple glitter robe with cool glass eyes. It was really a candle holder, but just right for about 20 quarters, & I only gave out 3 or 4 all in one group of kids. I had the pencils in a ziplock bag with slider lock. So, I carried them all out on the porch, kind of stupid like, but vaguely fun. If I hadn’t called the mother, then I would have had none. Never know if you’ll get 100 kids or none. I usually prepare, then get none. Kind of depends on where you live. If it’s easy to do, then add a decoration to your door. It is kind of disappointing if the kids have told me about their costumes, but then I don’t get to see them. Oh, well. Good luck with that!

Mary asks…

Some fun facts about sweden and whatever you can think of, is sweden better than england?

answers:

Both countries are fine, compared to other worse off countries, however generally speaking, economically, environmentally, socially and in terms of work relations, health and education, Sweden by far outranks England. Sweden has one of the highest standards of living, a healthy economic position, beautiful scenery almost everywhere, and very liberal social structure.

Some fun facts…

Easter is kind of like halloween, in that kids dress up and knock on doors for candy
employees get 5 weeks paid vacation a week
tax is paid via. Mobile phone, as are tax returns, and yearly, the amount of tax people payed is released publically, so anyone can see how much their neighbor, or a complete stranger, earnt and payed in tax.

Robert asks…

Has anyone been to “Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party”?

I’m looking to go this year (the pictures look really cute!), but is it worth it? Are all the rides open in Magic Kingdom? Do most people (adults) dress up? Thanks!!

answers:

It’s definitely worth the price of admission!!

Yes, most of the rides are open for the event, but you won’t really have a lot of time for that (in fact, I would only make a point of riding Haunted Mansion, just for the fun of it).

I’d say the majority of folks (kids and adults) dress up for the event — it’s fun!

The parade is definitely a must-see, as well as the fireworks show (at one point they are going off all around you, a neat effect).

Have fun!

Christians..how do you feel about halloween?

I have never been comfertable about it dressing up as demons, the devil, witches and other dark forces of evil….have you ever looked up the actual origins? then there is the fact that kids seem to be saying…give me a treat or i will trick you…then they get lots of candy to rot their teeth…

www.ca.answers.yahoo.com/question/index;_ylt=AkunI8g9HJmZdVO1wpcPkIvpFQx.;_ylv=3?qid=20071019064621AAohVEH

answers:

I’m a Christian and I’ve been told that I shouldn’t celebrate Halloween. My church always ends up have this fall festival or something of that nature. They play games, bob for apples, and give all the kids candy. Basically, I feel like they are still celebrating it but they aren’t just dressing up. I actually like Halloween maybe it’s just because my birthday is in October and I’ve always wanted to have a costume party. Halloween is the only holiday that gives you a reason to dress up and have fun. I don’t think that people should dress up in demonic costumes like devils and witches. It’s kind of like they are celebrating the devil.I’ve never actually heard a kid say give me a treat or I will trick so you I don’t know what to say about that one.

Your Questions About Halloween Contacts

Linda asks…

Halloween contact lenses?

I’m a teenager, and for Halloween, we’re all going to Halloween parties over the weekend. For my costume, I wanted contact lenses to make my eyes red, but I didn’t make that decision until recently. The weekend is technically only 2 days away and so I can’t order them off the internet…not enough time. So, my question is, where can I go to buy the contacts in person? Like, a Halloween store? Shop?

answers:

Never, no seriously, NEVER buy contact lenses from a costume shop. No one regulates those contacts, you could very well do permanent damage to your eyes or go blind. And I can gaurantee with absolute certainty that if that happens you won’t be thinking “at least my costume was nice.”

They are not “one size fits all.” An eye doctor (ophthalmologist or optometrist) must measure each eye to properly fit the lenses and evaluate how your eye responds to contact lens wear. A poor fit can cause serious eye damage, including
scratches on the cornea (the clear dome of tissue over the iris – the part of the eye that gives you your eye color)
corneal infection (an ulcer on the cornea)
conjunctivitis (pink eye)
decreased vision
blindness
Some of this can happen in 24 hours. And, also, those contacts are being sold illegally.

Richard asks…

Looking for inexpensive Halloween contacts?

looking for a store in CT, or online store in the USA that sells Halloween contacts. Looking for green cat eye type, without perscription.

Thanks.

I think your best bet is to search on google to make sure you get the very best price, but you can also go to a really cool website/blog that discusses color contacts and has a list of places and prices. It’s bestcolorcontacts.blogspot.com

One site I have bought from is http://www.coastalcontacts.com/halloween-lenses/cHalloweenLenses-p1.html# but the contacts were uncomfortable. I really rely on the reviews of that bestcolorcontacts blog to guide me from now on :)

Lizzie asks…

Cheap Halloween Colored Contacts.?

Anybody know a site or a place in Boston, Ma. where I can purchase cheap
halloween colored contacts?

answers:

It is against federal law to purchase contact lenses (even non-prescription) without an eye doctor’s prescription for them.
Yes, people do it, but you won’t find them in any store.

Some contact lenses are available in plano (non-prescription). Sometimes, patients without a need for vision correction want to change their eye color by wearing these cosmetic colored or special effects lenses.

While these lenses are considered cosmetic, “non-prescription” or plano, the wearer still needs to have an eye exam and contact lens fitting from an eye care provider because contact lenses are made from different materials, and the diameters and base curves are different sizes. What works for one patient might not work for another.”

Sandra asks…

“Halloween” Contacts?

I’m building special effects makeup portfolio, and I thought it would be a good idea to invest in some scary looking contacts. I don’t plan on putting them in anyone’s eyes but my own, but even still, I want to make sure I take necessary precautions.

I’ve found some halloween contacts online around the 20-40 dollar range, but I’m not sure how safe these are to wear. Also, I already wear contacts as is, and I’m blind as a bat without them, so would it be possible to invest in some specialized prescription lenses? If so, around how much would that regularly cost?

answers:

Contacts online without a prescription are called circle contacts and they are dangerous to use. First thing is they may contain bacteria in them that can give you an infection. Next, they most probably won’t fit your eye and that could cause the edge to scratch your cornea. Get some that are prescribed by your optometrist and fitted properly. Cost is a good deal more than regular contacts but the safety factor is what is of concern here.

Betty asks…

Hi, I have a perscription of -350 vision in both eyes. Does anyone know where I can get contacts online with such bad eye sight? Thanks to anyone who answers! :)

Well, for halloween contacts, I found a really cool website with lots of designs.

You find there answer to you question.

How can I get a girl to help me? Ask simply one of your girlfriends to help you with make up and girly clothing and high heels for Halloween. Or you can ask here if a girl from your town can help you.
What will everyone else think when they see me as a complete and beautiful girl?
It depends if you will look at Halloween like a nice girl they will think you are wonderful. The long hair wig and suitable make up are magical means. They change your appearance such way that nobody can recognize you are not the real girl.

Help with my Halloween Wedding?

Hello :) I’m getting married October 31, 2009. I’m having a great time planning everything but I can’t seem to find a perfect invitation. We’re having a romantic and autumn themed ceremony but the reception is fun and halloweeny. I’ve seen some nice autumn invites but nothing Halloween. Any websites would be great. Thank you all in advance!

answers:

I have a couple of thoughts…Why not make your own? My husband and I did this for our wedding and they turned out really nice. We didn’t get married on Halloween, but what with all of the print shop and card making programs, you should be able to put in whatever you want get it exactly how you want it. One tip: use a heavier cardstock paper.

You could also use foam shapes or craft beads to decorate the invite with, or fall colored leaves from silk flowers to put into the envelope so they flutter out when the envelope is opened.

You could also send two separate invitations that way you can have both Fall and Halloween themes.

You could also think of things that you see at both times of year to put on the invitation (scarecrows or apples for example.) Many craft shops or websites would have cute little things you could send with the invitation.

One last thought…you could have a fall themed invitation but inside the envelope put something Halloweeny like a pair of spider rings that people could bring to the reception. Hmmm… Depending on how many people you have invited they could even throw the spider rings at you, instead of rice, as you leave the reception.

Www.orientaltradingcompany.com is good for cheaper but still good quality favors and craft stuff. If you have a bit bigger budget, you could try Current. I don’t know their exact website but that is the company name.

Cheap Halloween Costume?

My friends and I are going trick or treating this year as our stereotypical opposites, if that makes sense. One of my friends is the geek, easy, and the other one is going to be a punk/emo, easy again, but i am the infamous prep and i have no idea how to pull that off. can anyone give me some places i can buy clothes without giving all of my so very little budget to abercrombie and american eagle. some makeup tips would be nice as well, but i have never done my own makeup so we should keep that in mind. thanks ;)

answers:

Since it’s halloween it’ll be fun. Go to platos closet or something and pick out some preppy looking clothes. Go buy fake eyelashes..outreageous ones, and put them on. Thicker eyeliner with a matching eyeshadow to your outfit. Look up make up tutorials or go to a beauty shop and ask them to help you with that project. I’m sure they’ll be willing. Sounds like fun!

George asks…

What are good halloween costumes?

Me and my friends want to be unique FOOD on halloween. Like enchiladas, bowl of cereal, squirtable cheese, etc. Where can I find UNIQUE(not the usual like hot dog, taco, banana, grapes, ketchup & mustard etc.) food costumes? I want to buy them on-line? thanks

answers:

I honestly think it would be a nightmare trying to buy that kind of costume off the internet because most shops have to sell things that will be popular. Your best shot is making one from scratch using card and paper mache.

The only website I can find is ebay:http://www.ebay.com/sch/i.html?_from=R40&_trksid=p5197.m570.l1313&_nkw=food+halloween+costume&_sacat=See-All-Categories

Have fun!

John asks…

How to put in Halloween Contact lenses?

I just bought halloween contacts they have upside down crosses in them and i love them, but i have no idea how to put them in.

answers:

I wear contacts and glasses. Okay. All you do is put your left hand upside and and hold up your eye lashes and hold them then put the contact on the tip of you pointer and your your ring finger to pull down you under eye and then just put it in and roll your finger on it to make sure it got on your eye. Now your eye make water a little but just wipe that away and your good. Now don’t use water with contacts because water make your contacts shrivel and use regular eye drop. If you have something in your eye use the eye drops and if it don’t stop hurting then take your contacts out and wash it really good with the eye drops. And put one small drop in it when you put it back in your eye and then put some eye drops in your eye then put the contact in.

Hope I helped.. P.s. I’m only 12 and I wear contacts. Trust me on this. I have wore them for a very long time. And I have a lot of skill with them.

Carol asks…

Where can you buy ‘Halloween Contacts’ without a prescription?

how do you buy all those wild contacts if you don’t need glasses. Anywhere online? Any stores?

answers:

They are available through a bunch of websites BUT you still need to have a prescription for them, even if you don’t need corrective lenses. You will still need to have an eye exam and contact lens fitting because contact lenses come in many different base curves and diameters. The are not a “one size fits all” type of accessory. The are a medical device and they are regulated by the FDA because of that. So, even without needing corrective lenses, you would need a prescription for Plano lenses (non-prescription) Poorly fitting contact lenses can lead to heaps of problems so it is important that you see your eye doctor to make sure you get the right curve and diameter for YOUR eyes.

The Catch 22 about ordering your contacts online to get them cheaper, is that the doctor will not release a prescription to you to have filled elsewhere until he has SEEN the actual contacts on your eyes to ensure they are fitting properly. Unfortunately, this means that you’ll have to buy contacts through your doctor’s office before they will be comfortable releasing the info for you to have filled some place else. A prescription for contacts isn’t considered final until they have checked the fit of the lenses on you, and so you will need lenses for them do that. And online website that sell contacts USUALLY won’t guarantee a pair of contacts if you need to return them due to the fact that the doctor had to refit them. Also, when you’re ordering online or over the phone, the company that you’re ordering from must verify your prescription with your doctor to make sure that its correct and valid and if the doctor’s office will not verify it because they have not verified the final the prescription on you, then they will not be able to complete your order. This is to ensure that people are not filling their prescriptions with different lenses other than what they were fit with, and to make sure that people aren’t trying to have expired prescriptions refilled.

I’m sure 1800-Contacts has Wild Eyes, those are the really popular ones. Just do a Google search for contact lenses online. But you WILL need a prescription.

Robert asks…

where can i get colored halloween contact lenses?

have a few questions:
1. do they work in making your eyes different colors when you wear them (i have light eyes, if that makes a difference)

2. where?! i live on long island and have limited travel (becasue im a minor)

3. how much? (aprox.)

thanks!

answers:

You should definitely see an eye doctor before buying any type of contact lens. The reason for that is that they can size your eye for fit to help lower the risk of eye damage.

That said – there is a great store online that sells contact lenses for all types of Halloween costumes that are FDA approved AND when I checked it out today they have a 15% off coupon SCARY15 for these lenses (good until mid -October I believe).

Check out the lenses here:

There is more information here on colored contacts in general:

Your Questions About Halloween Fun Facts For Kids

Laura asks…

Christians: What are your opinions of Halloween; do you celebrate it? why or why not?

I personally do not celebrate it. It seems to be a fun day for kids, however, Halloween is a day for all sorts of immorality- where freakish, horrid things are shown in movies, and large drunken parties are held as well.

I mean, not all aspects of Halloween are bad. Children get to dress up and get candy, that’s ok I suppose, yet it seems that this is a Holiday that Christians shouldn’t be celebrating.

That’s just my opinion; it doesn’t make you any more of a sinner if you and your family celebrates it… lol

So, what do y’all think about the holiday of Halloween?

answers:

Halloween has never meant much to me except that I’d get to dress up and beg candy off strangers. Coming from a Christian home, my parents never celebrated Halloween, instead giving out tracts and candy to other trick-or-treaters. I always felt like I was missing out on something. Halloween is when parents dress themselves up then dress up their own kids and take them and have fun. Sure, you should be careful out there, but that shouldn’t stop you. My mom was (and is) a bit unreasonably paranoid, and my father is a religious hypocrite. I would have loved to go out in an adorable little costume and gotten free candy. One year a little girl asked me why I wasn’t in costume and getting candy. My thoughts immediately went to my parents. I could never and still don’t understand why my parents wouldn’t take us out. We may have been six rambunctious kids, but we weren’t stupid. I don’t think of Halloween as celebrating Satan or drunkeness or anything other than pure fun. I’ll admit, there are many aspects to Halloween I don’t like, such as the excuse to dress like a $lut and no one is able to call you on it (’cause it’s Halloween), the drunken parties, the fact that a lot of pervy people are out scouting, and then there’s that stupid thing where people are “poisoning” the candy and crap like that. All in all, Halloween is not bad holiday, but I think it depends on your point of view, and what you define as bad. I personally don’t mind Halloween, but I know that my parents don’t like it, so I’ve given up on guilt-tripping them.

Chris asks…

Maternity Halloween Costume Ideas?

So, when Halloween rolls around this year I will be 8 1/2 months pregnant. I really like dressing up for Halloween and taking my nephew to a fair we have in town where he can trick or treat and bob for apples and paint a little pumpkin and do all sorts of fun kid stuff. In fact, it’s pretty much the highlight of the fall season for me :D I would love to wear a cute maternity costume that shows off my belly without actually showing off my belly. What I mean is I would be more inclined to paint a white t-shirt than my actual skin as I have stretch marks and I am pretty self conscious about them. The only cute one I have found so far is Mother Earth…Which is pretty self explanatory. I’d love to hear other ideas! Thanks!

answers:

I had a friend who made a wearable oven out of a painted cardboard box. The oven door opened to reveal a little loaf of bread painted on her t-shirt. Get it, a bun in the oven? Her husband dressed like a baker lol

Linda asks…

Leaving candy out for Halloween?

I bought about 30 full sized candy bars this year but we will be trick or treating with our 3 year old about 30 minutes away in my old neighborhood. I’m going to leave a bowl with the candy bars out with a sign. Any creative phrasing out there that has worked for you in keeping the kiddies (most likely the unchaperoned tweens and teens) honest? We usually get around 15-20 kids.

answers:

"Take one only. Fun fact: you are being filmed/watched and I have lots of spare time." Lol. I have no idea. There really is no way to deter it unless there's a live person there… Good luck. The first person over 13 years old is just going to dump the whole bowl…

Daniel asks…

Have you stopped participating in Halloween?

After many years of enjoying the antics I did, all the stuff I had and the fun when scaring kids, I finally stopped. Why you may ask? Because I took a bet from other church members. Now I am not saying that everyone out there needs to nbe churchgoers, far from me to say that, however, I did take the challenge. The last year (1999) I started asking kids what Halloween meant to them. There was a myriad of answers, from “God lets the Devil out” to “The witches get out one night a year with God’s permission”. I gave all mys tuff away (and I had probably $1,500 or more invested, everything from a casket to an aquarium filled on one side with candy, the other with a trip light that turned on when they went for the goodies, and my pet trantula (alive) would startled the kids.

So, has anyone else decided to stop their participation? Have others gone from not participating to participation of Halloween?

answers:

I’m a Christian, in fact an ordained minister, (not that such has too much bearing since all Christians have equal access to God…) and I enjoy Halloween for a number of reasons. #1- I love monster stories! And “why?” you may ask. Because they are wonderful commentaries on humanity. #2- how can you beat candy? #3- Cats, bats, and spiders are just plain cool #4- orange and black are great colors, esp. When used in conjuction with eachother. #5 If you are a Christian, you believe that God created all these things (well, the ingredients, at least….) and why not praise Him for them, right? Sure, we could do that every day, but as Halloween is already a day set aside for those things, Oct. 31 is a good enough time. Also, it is all about intent. If you set out to do evil, then that is evil. If we are going to be sanctified from the world, and all its evil elements, what is more evil about Halloween? Couldn’t Christmas be just as evil, if celebrated in a worldly manner? Just some thoughts, also, costumes aren’ t bad, either.

George asks…

Halloween Predicament?

So, I’m fifteen and I absolutely LOVE Halloween. I love dressing up in costumes and getting candy. Dressing in costumes is kinda my thing, what with me being a theatre kid and all. Last year I posted a question about if fourteen was too old to go out trick-or-treating. Good news; Last year, my parents let me go as long as I got together my own costume. (I went as Lydia Deetz from “Beetlejuice” last year. I just took some black clothes and put on a little dark makeup.)

Now that I’m fifteen, my mom’s really serious about not letting me go out trick-or-treating. Now my plan is to stop trick-or-treating at eighteen and start going to Halloween parties. I’m bummed about this, but I’m trying to talk my parents into letting me have a bonfire with a few friends that evening. (We have a fire pit in our backyard.)

But still, I could be doing drugs or smoking or drinking on Halloween and trick-or-treating is a lot more harmless than drugs and such. (I don’t drink, smoke, or do drugs, by the way, and have no plans to anytime soon. I’d be kicked out of theatre if I did.) Plus childhood is eighteen years long, whereas adulthood is forever. I even had a cool idea for a costume this year; “The Undead Birdwoman of the Night.” Plus, I went as girly/not-so-scary stuff for about nine years. Then at ten, I went as scarier/gothic costumes. I think that nine years of not-so-scary stuff should be balanced out by nine years of scarier costumes.

Your thoughts on this? Should I be able to dress up and go out trick-or-treating? If you don’t think so, any fun and cool alternatives that are just as good if not better? Thanks in advance!

answers:

My thoughts are what I’ve told everyone concerning when you should stop trick-or-treating. When you feel you’re too old for it. I’ve seen kids who stopped around 13 while kids their age are still doing it and I’ve had college age kids come by without any little kids in tow.

However I also point out that parents can force the matter and that is what is happening with you. It is doubtlessly why college kids go trick-or-treating, their parents forced them to stop before they were ready and now their away from home and want to do something they enjoyed when they were younger at least one more time.

There are things to consider if you can’t go trick-o-treating. For starters, you actually have a life time to balance out the nine years of girly/not-so-scary stuff. Just because you stop trick-or-treating does no mean you stop dressing up. Look at the costume industry, the second most profitable part of that industry is adult’s costumes. You can still dress up for Halloween. In fact you can dress up just to hand candy out. AND you can really counter balance those nine years with four years of turning your house into a haunted house for trick-or-treaters. Which can be fairly inexpensive or it can get quite expensive (and make you’re going trick-or-treating a lot cheaper

Another thing you’re parents probably don’t want is you getting into trouble on Halloween. Face it, for too many teens Halloween seems a night for vandalism, and that could mean a visit from the cops (most likely bringing one home). Obviously trick-or-treating doesn’t prevent this from happening, but for some folks it’s going to be a little more likely to happen if they have nothing to do.
