    Will there be Scotch? I'm all for men in kilts, but Scotch helps. If so I'm for it.

    I think teachers that give students a lot of homework due or a test on Nov 1st are just being downright crabby. You can give the students a break from time to time. Send them off without homework for one day and don't schedule a test on that day. It is simple enough. Having said that, the parents need to make sure to get their kids in at a decent hour on Halloween night.

    That is what I like too. If it were always Saturday, I would be out and I wouldn't get to see all the costumes.
    I think I will have a snack and take a nap before I eat and go to sleep.

    I went to Catholic school, so we always had off on November 1 (All Saints Day).

    Really? Lucky. I went to Episcopal elementary/middle school and then Catholic High School. It was definitely a celebrated holiday but not one we got off from school for.

    Change your last name to Addams, and claim it as a religious holiday!

    It's a holy day of obligation in the Catholic Church, which means you're required to go to mass. At my schools they always gave us off on those days so we could go to mass with our families. As if. The only times I went to mass were at school, so they should've just held classes and made us go.

    Then there's no need to ask the parents!
