Oh my gosh...this is great! I had no idea even though I live in Austin where Halloween is celebrated like a national holiday! And yes...I will be dressing up!

Interesting stats.

It is a crazy time in my neighborhood. I always wear a hunting outfit, because I lack creativity and because it is highly visible when I take my girls out trick-or-treating.

Russell, send me the pics of your costume. Hope you have fun!

Jason, that's great! I'm assuming the bright orange vest is the highlight...?

I'm thinking Jello shots for the adults are called for this year - any one want one?

Debra, thanks for reading! I hope you had a great Halloween!

Juli, this could make for staggering Trick-or-Treaters (or at least the chaperons).
