I grew up spending Halloween in Florida. It was fun, going trick or treating and dressing up and all that, but most years the weather sucked for the holiday.
I always wear skimpy outfits on Halloween. You can dress as darth Vader if you want to. Most Halloween costumes show some skin and I'd rather the weather be comfy outside for it. The Midwest must have frigid halloweens wear you have to be very selective of what you wear.

probability of a white Halloween looks very different from a white Christmas map

I like the map. This was "above the fold" on the front page of today's paper.

I'm not sure. Things don't seem as good any more, not with entire squadroms of parents escorting maybe three kids. We wouldn't have stood for that when I was young.

In contrast to last year's rude, greedy, grabby kids (and parents...a bunch of kids pushed their way into our house and grabbed candy right out of our bowl with parents beaming aren't-they-cute rays) who didn't bother saying Trick or Treat or thanking us, this year the kids were polite AND said Trick or Treat, Thank You, and Happy Halloween.

I guess it's a start.

New Orleans and NY City have best Halloween parades if you are an adult.

There should be two measurements, best for kids and then best for adults.

Chicago is usually a huge city for Halloween, it was the former mayors favorite holiday and after 15 years ended up having a ton of city events, etc. Lots of bar parties, parades.

This year though with the Cubs Halloween seemed to be somewhat glossed over and forgotten by much of the city's adult population.

I didn't even dress up! First time I haven't since I moved here after college 15 years ago.

When we lived in Tucson, our big suburban area was absolutely nuts for Halloween, moreso than where I've lived in the Chicago suburbs. I think the weather is a major factor. It's beautiful in the evenings in AZ around that time. People were everywhere.
