The Hollow Weenie is coming

We listened to a children's radio program on XM a few years ago in which a skunk, called Loofa, was scared of the Hollow Weenie.
Ever since then, I just CANNOT call this "holiday" by its real name.  I must call it The Hollow Weenie.
And just WHAT is the point of this "holiday" anyway?  I find it quite weird.
Maybe I'm just a party-pooper of a mom, but I don't feel like shelling out for all the STUFF that goes into this one (lame) day:  costumes (even if you make them, they cost money!), pumpkins for everyone, candy, decorations.  I just don't have the brain strength for this one!
Anyway, participate we shall.  And WE'LL LIKE IT!!
Here's the line up:
1 kitty cat
1 Native American 
1 James Bond
1 yet-to-be-determined
PS  If we're going as a family to a Halloween open house, do the grown-ups need to dress up?  If so, uh oh.
What do you think?

oops, already posted that pic!  oh well, pumpkins are always appropriate blog fodder

  1. I too think all of the halloween hype is D-U-M-B. You should see how much some people decorate their houses here or how may blow-up things are on front lawns. Colin is amused by how incensed I get about it! :)

    (To clarify, I'm not so much judging the people who do such things, as the culture that perpetuates having tons of useless stuff that we buy without really thinking about it.)
