Halloween is Coming!!!!

'Twil soon be the night of all hollowes eve, and I might make a spectacular suggestion to all those gathered in this congregation of forum. In celebration of this holiday, we should have all members temporarily suspend their avatars, and replace them with a halloween costume/theme for the 30th and 31st of october. Maybe it sounds stupid, but why not get the whole forum into the holidays?

We Dutchies don't have halloween. Well, we have 'carnaval' and 'Sint Maarten' which is sort of like Halloween.
In conclusion:
No! I am a blitheringo idiot who dislikes fun and games of any kind.

Basically I'm against any form of celebration of the evil and of the bad spirits. I find the way children threaten people to get candies is anti-educative, and furthermore halloween isnt at all in the french traditions. So yeah I'm a blithering <cut/past from above>...

However, if someone could make me an halloween/pumpkin Fire Phoenix, why not

I agree with firephoenix to an extent, but my church holds a halloween party every year which i attend (this year im borrowing my female friends underwear/dress/shoes) and the dressing up is fun and non evil.
If some one posted different avatars then i would gladly change mine, but im not very good at making them.

Ah well, Halloween sucks anyway. Basically, every special day does, because of the commercial aspects, BLAH!

Yeah, I've been eating pepernoten for about one month now, and there won't be Sinterklaas for another month. And around one week before 5 dec. they will already be working on Christmas.

You bloody american, stop promoting your cultu.... oh wait, halloween... sure thing.... too bad Firep is a bit wrong here, you see, as far as I know, the dressing up at halloween is like the fireworks at the chinees new year: it's not to celebrate evil or something, but to caste it away and to honour the dead ^_^


which can, traditionaly speaking, become a very bad thing for me....

Atresica - first I was 90% joking there (/me loves to be a mess maker ), then I speak of the nowadays version of Halloween. Before, it was "All Hallow Eve", that was not at all the 5-6 years children party we got now
Nah I just think it's not the best party occasion that exists, and furthermore I dont see how I could make a halloween phoenix...or let's see, a pumpkin gerbil...hum....
