    Halloween at the office - whatcha doin'?

    Just wondering what you are all doing for/on Halloween at your offices.

    Since I work in the billing office, I'll be sending some goodies out to the 8 opticals I do billing for - We have a potluck today. We are having vegetarian chili, chips & salsa, cornbread and I'm not sure what else.


    At the last LC I worked for, we had so much fun when the kids would come trick or treating in the mall - (there were TONS on them - hundreds) -

    We had 2 of us at the front of the store handing out the candy (can't mess with the traffic counter ;)) and I would always put the Sight Night info in their bags, too .


    What is the day like at your office?

    We had free pizza today. I do not know if it was more for Halloween, or because we had a meeting all afternoon starting at 1pm.

    Ory, that's so awesome!! :cheers:

    We all dressed up at work. The Vampire is one of the docs. Like you Ory, he wore the get-up, fangs and all, while seeing patients. I'm the Devil in the black dress (only time I'll ever get to wear a dress that low cut to work...). Our eyewear specialist is a go-go girl, and the other doc is the cowgirl.
