Halloweens of years gone by...

What are your first memories of Halloween? What are your best memories, and worst? What were the traditions you grew up with, and how have they changed? One of my favorite recollections is of the little paper-mache jack-o-lanterns we carried instead of flashlights. And our tradition then, when I was... Sign in to see full entry.

What if you could have a magical or futuristic device, what would it be?

Invisibility cloak... 7-league boots... Universal translator that works for animals as well as other human-like people...

Wouldn't it be better if...?

Wouldn't it be better if we weren't so afraid of nakedness? Wouldn't it be better if we considered our bodies our children instead of our enemies?
