Writer's Block & Lady Gaga Tickets!  
What are you going to be for Halloween this year? Are you going to wear coordinating costumes with a friend or partner? Did you buy something pre-fab or make it yourself?

As a girl who went to a Catholic primary school and secondary school it was always drummed into us that Halloween is evil and that as good Catholic children we would never dress up as evilness. So because of this I never did anything for Halloween and tbh it never bothered me that much. Plus I was always told it was too American lol. This year is going to be my first Halloween party and I'm not going as anything scary; I'm going as Robin Hood. It's more of a fancy dress than a scary thing.

Any ideas on how I can scarify my costume?

In other news I got Lady Gaga tickets today for her visit to the O2 next February :) I woke up at 9 this morning to be first in the queue but they sold out ages ago because the bastards give priority of O2 customers...grrr. But because I kept refreshing my page, I got dibs when they opened a new date for the day after!

I'm American, and my church and pastor were awesome when my kids were little. He encouraged kids to come in costume to an early afternoon Mass. You could wear anything, but if you came dressed as a saint, you could come up to the front, give a three or four sentence explanation of who your saint was, then receive a little prize. Most years my kids would do a saint, hurry home for a quick supper, then change into other costumes and go trick or treat.
His sermon always talked about the origin of Halloween as a way to scare off/appease the spirits of the dead, and now it's "All Souls Day", when we pray for them.

Hiya! Yeah I totally think that's cool! It's just as a child we were just told we shouldn't dress up to "celebrate" evil spirits! Plus if your American, I think it's more of an American tradition so nobody over here does much on Halloween anyway. xxx
