    Here in Argentina it's not that common to celebrate halloween, since it's not a part of our culture.

    But I got to say that it's a great reason to party!!! There are a lot of halloween partys where people go in costumes, but nobody shows at doors looking for candy =P

    Default halloween party?

    That's sort of the impression I've gotten, Ezequiel- Halloween is all about the party, anyway, right? Not that Argentines need any more reason to party!

    Here in Mexico, Halloween is not part of our traditions. But Mexicans like parties and most of them don't care about the origin of this tradition. Tonight, I went with my son to ask for candies in the neighborhood. Then, we stayed at home giving some candies to other kids. I used this tradition to teach to my son happiness is not only to receive gifts, but give them too.

    I remember reading/seeing something about that once... can you tell us more about the story behind the candles? Is there a name for the tradition?

    ooops. I think it's already too late for us to match costumes... anyway I just put on my ole pair o' jeans, crossed my fingers and wished really hard michael myers wouldn't make it to my neck of the woods. has anyone heard of him lately? on second thought i don't think he'd ever take a plane, considering he hasn't uttered a single word ever since he was just a child...

    Hank -

    Michael Myers has never gone away nor will he ever. You just can't hear him or see him until it's too late. And, yes, this was available for your viewing pleasure in local cinemas...

    right on, scott. I actually stopped by and tried to communicate but, as usual, never did he talk to me nor to anybody. I wonder if others tried doing that too. anybody?

    Michael Myers = terminally misunderstood. He just gave up trying to have us "get him". So he chose slaughter. Whatever one needs to get the monkey off the back, I guess.

    I just realized I misread the original post on this. Candies, right. That makes sense. But isn't there something about kids in Mexico with candles.......................................
    Ohhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh. It's Christmas.......
    Que boluda.
