What is your favourite thing about Halloween?

Is it something you used to do?
Something you do now?
An on going tradition?
or is there just that one thing that gets you in the Halloween spirit?


My favourite thing that we used to do every Halloween was bobbing for apples, just made us all laugh so much. Specially when my uncles would race against each other to see who could get the most out in 1 minute there was so much water all over the kitchen afterwards.
One year my cousin filled the big bowls with baked beans instead of water & our Uncles didn't know this as they had to wear a blind fold so it was a surprise for them when they stuck there faces right in. Was just so funny :p Still makes me giggle hehe

:LOL:

Hi Lollipop!

I loved your story about bobbing for apples with your cousins and family. Very funny to imagine the surprise of bobbing in baked beans for apples!


Is it something you used to do? My mum always used to throw Halloween parties for my friends and myself. I think my first Halloween party was when I was 6 and I had one almost every year up until I was about 14 ^-^
There was always games and prizes, lots of food and my mum always made sure I had a great "scary" costume.


Something you do now? My friend who I met in 2005, Her birthday is actually the 31st of October so we always celebrate her birthday by having a Halloween party or a party of sorts where we wear Halloween costumes.

An on going tradition? No matter what I always celebrate Halloween, I really enjoy making/wearing costumes. I try something different every year. Over the last few years I have been a pumpkin/jack'o'lantern, Boo! from Super Mario Bros. A devil and this year I am hoping to dress as Lydia from Beetlejuice when she is forced to be his bride.

Hi :)

Thank you it was really funny my little brother was about 4 or 5 I think. He couldn't stop laughing when it happened he had the giggles all evening. He was dressed up as a ghost as well so he was a Little Giggling Ghost

Hehe

Love Halloween parties & fancy dress. My friend I usually do this with though is in Australia this year travelling so off to my boyfriends this year.

Your costume sounds like it will be amazing :D

For me, it has to be the transition of the fall weather. How the leaves turn, they sky turns... eggnog is in season... then on Halloween Day, there's just crowds of people all over the streets. Walking among them with my kids, smiling at all the different costumes as we trick-or-treat.

My favorite thing is carving pumpkins. It was one of the best date nights I had with my fiance, as he showed up at my door on a Wednesday with pumpkins and a big smile on his face.

I guess I like the excuse to wear a costume the most. I always loved dressing up for Halloween. I think it's being able to pretend I'm someone else for a little while.

Oh I wish I lived in America or something when halloween is on. It's not really celebrated in Norway. But the last few years stores have been taking in some halloween decorations and it's slowly getting more normal :)

I love decorating with bats, ghosts and skeletons - anything creepy crawly! I like dressing up. Watching scary movies when it's dark outside. And just the general cosy autumn feeling when you're inside, candles lit, eating halloween candy :3

I used to love living in town just so I could pass out candy to sprogs, then go to parties later. That was about all I loved about town thoug! Now I live out in the woods and no one ever comes Trick or Treating. I miss that.

What I do love is all the skeletons and skulls that are available right ow. My den is done up in a Dia de los Muertos theme and I need plenty of dead folk to occupy it. There's more horror film on the tube to watch as well, but I find I generally own them anyway, so my kidlet and I just watch stacks and stacks of films all month. Tis fun.

Wow, that's quite a bump! Anyway, I guess my favorite thing about Halloween would be the time of the year. It's like one day from November, which is one of my top favorite months (the other being December). Nevertheless, it can still be hot on Halloween, which is always frustrating.

Halloween is my favorite holiday! I miss trick-or-treating and cannot wait to start this with my daughter who will be 11 months old come Halloween. We carved pumpkins for the first time in a longtime last year. I like roasting the pumpkin seeds after carving too but this year I did not like how they turned out. We tried too many new seasonings.

For Halloween themed things, I like bats, black cats, Jack-o-lanterns, orange, green, and black, vintage and retro décor, witches, vampires, Universal monsters, autumn weather, warmer clothes, the lore, magic, theme/seasonal food, etc. Just so many things about Halloween I love. I honestly wish there was more going on for adults around this holiday like dances and parties. Most of it around here is for children. I have hosted numerous parties myself but have not gotten to for a few years.
