Detroit Moxie's Weekend Roundup

Did you know that Americans spend about $6.9 billion on Halloween? That makes it the second largest commercial holiday in the country. And I thought it was just about kids trick-or-treating, carving pumpkins, and playing dress-up. So, what are you doing for Halloween? If you haven’t a clue read on for some fun ideas.

This is my actual pumpkin that I carved last night.

I do remember hearing a few years back that Halloween had become really big among adult, and that drives a lot of the spending. We get so few kids trick or treating these days that it's hardly worth buying candy (and running the risk of having too much around the house) and staying home. I think we had about two dozen kids last year...and that's as many as I remember ever since I've lived here.

We'll go to the Whalers' hockey game on Friday and probably stay home and have chili while waiting for little goblins on Halloween night. Oh, and I'll drag out my four-CD Rocky Horror Picture Show set and play it all evening to torture Tim :)

My parents don't get any trick-or-treaters, not one in 25 years. It's really kind of sad, they go to my Aunts house to be able to see the kids and hand out treats.

Wow, you really like your Rocky Horror!
