Halloween Shopping!

Finally decided to do some last minute shopping for Halloween today. Not to the mall, but just the Marshalls across the street.

After 30minutes of shopping decided to get this cute little costume for me and witch hat for my niece.....double witches for trick or treat on the 31st!

Last year I took my friend's kids trick-or-treating while they prepared the house for the late night Halloween party. Believe me its like dream come true for the kids (they were around 3) when loads and loads of chocolates land in their arms (actually cute bags!).

Hope the temperate wont drop a lot by Wednesday (crossing fingers)!

BTW, for info on Halloween: (Source Wikipeida)
Halloween, or Hallowe'en, is a holiday celebrated on the night of October 31. Traditional activities include trick-or-treating, Halloween festivals, bonfires, costume parties, visiting "haunted houses" and viewing horror films. Halloween originated from the Pagan festival Samhain, celebrated among the Celts of Ireland and Great Britain. Irish and Scottish immigrants carried versions of the tradition to North America in the nineteenth century. Other western countries embraced the holiday in the late twentieth century. Halloween is now celebrated in several parts of the western world, most commonly in Ireland, the United States, Canada, Puerto Rico, and the United Kingdom.
The term Halloween (and its alternative rendering Hallowe'en) is shortened from All-hallow-even, as it is the eve of "All Hallows' Day",[1] also which is now known as All Saints' Day.about witches and Irish tales of the Sídhe).
