When we first moved here, in 1991 and my kids were little, the neighborhood block parties had rules for Halloween such as no "scary" costumes, no witches or devils, etc.  Only clowns and other "safe" people were allowed.  We had the first house that was decorated with graveyards and so forth.  Now, even the houses that put out luminaries on Christmas also put them out on Halloween.

Ok, that makes sense.   Fortunately, I've never lived in a neighborhood that conservative... thank the gods.

Tonight was the first time I've had a chance to really look at my neighborhood after dark this month.  It was great to see that the same houses that are usually decorated to the hilt for Christmas fully decorated and lit up for Halloween.  I mean graveyards out front, hugh spider webs with spotlights on them, strings of light pumpkin lights.  I'm glad to see they still see halloween as a "fun' holiday.

That's the norm for our neighborhood too.  Although, I see a LOT more harvest-y type decorations, lots of pumpkins and straw and fodder shocks.  Not so many witch silhouettes, skeletons and bats, but we do see those here and there too.

A friend of mine went to see Zombieland this past weekend.  What's scarier than a clown?  A zombie clown, apparently.

Me, I'm not too keen on clowns, never really found them that funny, instead freaky and creepy (goes back to childhood scares!). As for the old Halloween scene, where I live the children try to copy our American cousins with 'trick or treat', the tv thinks they are showing really scarey films and the "young adults" treat it like April fools day with pranks and throwing lots of flour around.

So, I think I will be in my room meditating and doing a small srvice to what I believe to be the real meaning of the festival?

I second that! This is my second halloween in florida and Im pleasantly surprised with the yard decorations I've seen so far. The neighborhood I grew up in was always super scary, as it should be.
