Check out 2009's most popular Halloween costumes along with Hershey's Trick-or-Treat website

Halloween is quickly approaching which happens to fall on a Saturday this year, so there definitely will be an increase in trick-or-treaters and in parties. So if you haven't gotten your costume, or your kid's costume yet, there's still time. According to shopping search engine, SortPrice.com, here are the most popular kid and adult costumes this year:

  • Vampire
  • Sexy Nurse
  • Michael Jackson
  • Star Wars
  • Sexy Santa

So with kids it's the movie and TV characters that dominate the top spots again as usual. For adults I guess there's not much of a surprise there either with sexy costumes being what most women seem to gravitate to. I thought maybe Sexy Santa was a costume for men to wear, but instead the link to photos of the costumes proved me wrong.

Anyhow, I'll probably take out my devil ears and put them back on as I answer the door for the trick-or-treaters. This will be the first year that we won't have either of our two daughters home for Halloween since they're both off at college, so it will be much quieter. We always seemed to be the house that they and they're friends in the neighborhood would end up hanging out, so I will miss it.

Halloween Trick or Treat Hershey's has created a fun promotional micro-site just for Halloween this year at Hershey'sTrickorTreat.com. It's a great resource for moms (and dads) who are planning a party for their kids or just decorating the house. Hershey's has included many different craft and activity ideas, spooky recipes, costume and decorating tips, party planning guides and even resources for teachers for their classrooms.

Hershey's has also included a variety of pumpkin stencils to choose from which range from easy to difficult. My husband is the king carver and always tries to out do the rest of us every year. So check the site out. There are some fun downloads as well.

So I wish you all a Happy Halloween and hope you enjoy the night. I think we could all use a little fun diversion for at least a day.

Halloween mask

I think that pirate kids costume is unjustly forgotten. Both last year and this year it is one of the most popular costumes for boys


Some of the most popular theme parties in the past have been Hawaiian, Mardi Gras, Masquerade parties, but how about you get a little more creative and think of something that may not have been done yet, and if you’re having some difficulty coming up with any ideas, let me help you!
