    Oh Halloween is a big holiday here. I see a ton of decorations, and people spend a lot of money. As a kid we trick or treated, yes. Free candy,,,what a concept.

    I should say wooow..!

    Really a hell huge celebration to you there with billions USD.
    I thought it was only doing pumpkins carving with candle inside, some costumes, and some candies for kids.

    Happy Halloween then.

    I thought so too, but like everything, there is $ to be had. Halloween stores pop up in empty businesses for a couple of months. I see some pretty elaborate decorations at some homes I go to. To me it will always be dressing up and going trick or treating. I got a rock

    It's quite big over here as well, not sure how much money is spent, a lot if my daughter is anything to go by, mind you it's her youngests birthday on Halloween so that's her excuse.

    I'm finally back! After exams (which went quite well), my MENSA results coming back (I got in! ), my trip to Malaysia, Kenya and Sri Lanka, and two weeks of camp I've found the time to post a bit. For the rest of the term I won't be as active as I used to be but I'll be popping in and out.

    It's good to be back

    Welcome back, Jaidyn! Good to hear from you. Congratulations on your test score. Somehow we all knew that you wouldn't have a problem with that. Your trip must have been exciting. It's good that you can travel like that to make family memories.

    Hi Guys, looks like I'm another one to come back , though I was off only for a week, I think. But that's a very long time if we see the pace of this forum 17 unread subscribed posts was the first thing I saw I've got a lot to catch up

    And congrats to Tony on the Power User badge!! Well deserved.
