  1. My favorite Halloween memory was as a child, I dressed up as a nurse and was given a dollar during trick or treating.

  5. I dressed up as jasmine on my first trick or treat.

  6. we don’t celebrate halloween a lot in my country but my roleplaying club makes special tchullu session when we can dres up ( style 1920 etc) i’m helping with teh decoration and in charge for the meals ^^ it was really fun because that’s 3years i serves them the same thing and they sill can’t guess what it is ^^;; so all supposition come flying some even completly absurd^^

  7. We don’t have Halloween in Australia, but I do love all the books that come out for Halloween.

  8. I remember one year my sister and I dresses up as Raggedy Ann and Andy. She was quite a bit older so that was the last time we trick or treated together

  9. Veronika Briseño

    I Loved to go see the decorations of the houses on my neighborhood

  10. When I was 6 I dressed up as Raphael from TMNT. I thought I was so cool lol.

  11. Two years ago, our daughter couldn’t make up her mind on what she wanted to be. So the day before, my sweet husband took her and was at Toys R Us looking through what was left. She started shouting at a ladybug costume, “this is what I want! This is what I want!” So he grabbed it, checked out and ran home. He was so proud of himself when he pulled it out to show me! I didn’t have the heart to tell him it was the wrong size! Bless his heart, it took everything I had not to laugh. So, thank goodness I know my way around a needle and thread, I was able to make the costume work, so as not to hurt his feelings.

    To this day, he still doesn’t know it was the wrong size or that I altered it, and it will go down as one of his proudest moments. Just adorable! 🙂

    Thanks for a great giveaway, and Happy Halloween! 🙂

    When I was about 6, I went trick-or-treating with my aunt and siblings and we got to a very very decorative house. I was scared to climbed up the 5 stairs walk way up to the house but my aunt was like ‘it’s not scary, just go’. And so up the stairs I went and the next thing I know a wolf man jumping out of the bush atop the stairs and scared the hack out of me that I didn’t even went to receive my candy from him when he yelled out sorry as I ran to the next house 2 doors down.
    That was not fun but a very funny story now.

  46. When I was a kid, my mom made me a “hobo” costume. She cut heart-shaped and square-shaped patches out of fabric and sewed them on my jeans. I put black shoe polish on my face for a “beard” and tied a bandanna on a stick to carry over my shoulder with some stuffing in the bandanna sack to fill it out. It was my favourite costume!

    My favorite memory is the first time I took my son trick or treating.

  50. I remember when I was five and the Halloween of 1991. I was a mermaid that year; my mom had spent weeks on my costume, and sprayed sparkles and put shells in my hair. (I loved that costume….) Now, here’s the real memory part. Any kid who was old enough to trick or treat and lived in Minnesota in 1991 probably remembers the three feet of snow dumped on us. Still, my mom and I trekked out to the car (the snow drifts were higher than I was!), and we went trick-or-treating at the local mall, then hit the local school Halloween party. It was very cool, despite all the snow.

  51. I don’t celebrate Halloween because of my country but would like to have kitty ears and a tail!

  52. I remember carving pumpkins with my family and in the end they all looked horrible, but we still had fun!

  57. I always dressed up as a princess! Thanks for participating in the Spooktacular Blog hop!

  58. I remember one Halloween when I was little and trick-or-treating when me and my nephews went to this one house one of the statues in the yard was really a person dressed as a werewolf and he jumped up and chased me down the driveway. It really freaked me out.

  59. We don’t have Halloween here, but I love watching horror movies during Halloween!

  60. Carving pumpkins with my family and also the years I went trick or treating.

  61. I always enjoyed the trick-or-treating when I was a kid. Back in the 50’s, things were much simpler and kids could go out without worrying about taking homemade treats.

  62. My husband and I’s first date was on Halloween and we were sitting in the downtown Park here in Orlando–It was a beautiful night by the lake. A guy dressed as Jason walked slowly in front of us and stopped. Then his small speaker on his belt started playing the tinky piano Jason music. I looked right at him and deadpanned “Nice!” He walked off and we heard other people screaming at him.

  63. Dressing as my sports hero, Pete Rose

  64. I don’t get dressed up but all my students do. Then thte whole school goes to the gym and we dance to Monster Mash

  65. I remember when I was a kid we went to a mall for the first time and was surprised all the shops had candy and a bunch of kids were there too getting candy! It was great because it was a rainy day so I wasn’t allowed to go house to house outside

  66. One Halloween night I had gone trick-or-treating as Queen Amidala from Star Wars. That night, I had a dream that I was trick-or-treating with my brother and battle droids from Star Wars attacked me thinking I was really Amidala.

  67. I remember always going trick-or-treating with my sister and my cousins with my mom and aunt driving us all around!

  68. I always wanted to be a cat for Halloween so my mom would make me a flannel cat costume and then after Halloween I got to wear my costume as pj’s. I’d wear them till I couldn’t squeeze myself into them any longer

  69. My favorite memories all have to do with my mom making the costumes for all us kids on Halloween. Now she makes them for the grandkids.

  70. I always loved squeezing the pumpkin insides between my fingers so that they oozed out. Totally grossed my Mom out. Good times 🙂
