    Let's see . . .

    from TV to movies, and from restaurants to theaters - October is "Halloween Month" as everyone seems to be doing something that goes along with the spirit of that month-end holiday.



    Halloween came early to Seattle as the Moore Theater staged the live version of "Carrie", the Stephen King classic.

    And while you're at the store buying lots of candy, be sure to stop by the cereal aisle for General Mills annual October revival of Franken Berry and Count Chocula cereals. Plus this year General Mills is adding the return of Frute Brute, (not the new spelling) and Fruity Yummy Mummy.

    Btw, I still prefer the old 70's TV commercials:




    That's just a start - there's a ton of October related stuff happening all around me. Is this a reaction to Halloween becoming a holiday for adults?

        Happy Halloween! I really want to watch the Childs Play marathon with my kids but they're too young; although I was their age when I saw the first movie, we raise our kids soft these days lol.

            We'll watch "It's the Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown", a whole bunch of Goose Bumps, and whatever else I can think of. There hasn't been a lot of animated Halloween stuff this year, Monsters University was like the closest thing.

              Christmas comes but once a year, yet Halloween lasts a whole month. Is it just me or has Halloween bumped past Christmas as America's favorite?

              The only thing missing is making October 31st a national holiday.

                  Oktoberfest ended a couple of weeks ago. Still is October so the festival continues in my books.

                    I don't think so, I think way more adults participate in Christmas.

                        Halloween is also called "Devil's Night", and Christmas is a happier time. So, Christmas all the way!

                          Yes, I have to agree.

                          But Halloween has morphed over the last 40 years in ways I never imagined.
                          Just as some adults go over the top for Christmas there are those that take Halloween to extremes.

                          Me, I just love the parties!

                            I agree with most of the people here about Halloween.

                              Halloween is way less stressful for most adults. Sure kids will probably like Christmas more because of the presents. Christmas for most adults means longer work weeks and stress about finding gifts for everyone. Whereas Halloween is much more engaging and simple.

                                Thanksgiving and Christmas mean lots of time in the kitchen. followed by lots of eating. Halloween hasn't turned into a heavy food fest yet for most people except for candy.
