    For Halloween, I'm going as a werewolf and eating the middle schoolers who spam the forums! ( ̄▽ ̄)

    Just kidding! I'm not really doing anything for Halloween (besides giving out and eating candy).

    However, I am celebrating its predecessor, Samhain, because I'm Wiccan. I will be meditating, honoring my ancestors and the beginning of Gaelic Winter. I have a playlist of Samhain music here, if anyone's interested.

    Anyway, here are the translations in French and Italian:

    1. Monstre, Mostro
    2. Fantôme, Fantasma
    3. Zombie, Zombie
    4. Pirate, Pirate
    5. Sorcière, Strega
    6. Vampire, Vampiro
    7. Loup-garou, Lupo mannaro
    8. Momie, Mummia
    9. Squelette, Scheletro
    10. Crâne, Cranio
    11. Araignée, Ragno
    12. Chauve-souris, Pipistrello
    13. Chat noir, Gatto nero
    14. Pleine lune, Luna piena
    15. Bougie, Candela
    16. Citrouille, Zucca
    17. Bonbons, Caramelle
    18. Farce ou friandise, Dolcetto o scherzetto
    19. Costume effrayant, Costume spaventoso
    20. Joyeux Halloween, Felice Halloween

      I'm not far enough along to accurately give many of these words, but I thought that the concept was interesting. Have a Lingot for your idea.

        A story about a dentist who is buying candy from kids. He says all that sugar isn't good for their teeth.

        When I was a little kid, my dad thought that candy wasn't good for kids, so he was giving potatoes, turnips, and carrots instead but the kids got mad. When I was 11, I remember some kids came trick or treating. My dad started telling them stories. When I got back from Halloweening, those same kids were still there and my dad was still talking. They never got to do much Halloweening, I guess.
