    But in some ways it sure is watered down from when I was a kid. I don't have any children but I still enjoy it vicariously through friend's kids. The thing that bums me out is the loss of being a holiday about scary stuff and monsters. Nobody's kids are ever monsters anymore. Really lame costumes like animals, super heroes etc...Maybe it's the influence of the no fun christian fundies.
    I suggested one friend dress up her 6 month old as a "baby zombie" she seemed kinda taken aback about the whole idea. What gives?

    Just another day in Oceania.
