I'm from the US and obviously it's a big deal with young and old alike. There hasn't been one year where I haven't dressed up. What we've done at our place (in Australia) in the past is a jack-o-lantern and some decorations. (I know they're expensive but I want my kids to get into it.) We decorated for Halloween but went OS for Christmas the first year we moved in so didn't decorate. I'm sure the neighbors wondered what kind of whackos moved in!
Neighbors who don't have candy tell all the kiddos to come "to the house with the pumpkin". Last year we went TOTing for the first time and just left candy in a spooky box on the doorstep with a sign on it saying we were out but take a few pieces. I'm too much of a kid to not go with DD.
This year we'll actually be in the States for Halloween and I can't wait to show DD what it looks like when the whole neighborhood gets into it. Ours is slowly becoming that way but I think seeing hundreds of kids in costumes will just blow her mind.
She's Minnie Mouse this year and I've decided to go as pregnant Snow White. I'm thinking about making the people who ask me what I am guess which dwarf is responsible.
Once the twins are born the Halloween parties will start though! I can't wait! Love to see so many people getting into it.

Growing up in the UK it was massive & I remember having so much fun!
Even though we don't have kids yet, I still think halloween is pretty cool. Got some lollies already in case any kids come & I'm thinking of getting a scary decoration to put on the front door.

What about Buffy the Vampire Slayer or Lost Boys ( old movies but made for teens without the graphic violence ?)
Or the Adams Family movie ? Would the Scream movies or I know what you did last summer be too graphic?

I loved when a stranger calls! Its scary as in suspense , obviously the guys trying to kill her but I can't remember it being too graphic? Scream is ok but there are stabbings but it's not too graphic

What about Watcher in the Woods? It's rated PG and has no explicit violence, etc. but is pretty scary.....well I remember it as scary (it's been a while since I saw it). It's pretty old though
