What Halloween traditions do you have?

For me, I get dressed up, watch "It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown!" and "The Nightmare Before Christmas", read horror stories out loud.

I don't have any traditions regarding Halloween, other than giving things out to the kiddies that ring my bell. One thing that I don't do is give out candy, I give other things to the kids.

This year I'm giving out Nike baseball caps. Last year I gave out small aluminum flashlights. Some other things that I've given out are: Reebok hats, Phillies shirts, wooden model kits, shark teeth.
I haven't given out rocks......yet.

Not much, I can't say "the average american traditions" because everyone differs but I go to another relative, have dinner, then stay in my room and snack on the candy we give to littler kids...

I have a friend who passes up on Halloween, watches christmas movies and makes cookies and might even start decorating. Next year try making a list on the fridge throughout the year of things youd like to do come halloween. Its normally in mid-june when I come up with the best ideas on what id like to do. Mazes and pumpkin flavors. That way when the season comes back around you wont regret later on all the things you wanted to do but had forgotten.

Oh, I love Halloween! Every year we have a party. Last year we had a big sleepover and before that we made a haunted house in our garage using cardboard boxes. Never have we not dressed up and or gone lame with the decorations! We stuff a scarecrow with pine needles sometimes, then decorate him in the best attire. I always go trick-or-treating (though I might be considered too old) and then compare the weight and count of the candy. I'll always trade and sort it out, until I'm happy with it. November 1st is always the worst day, though, but I have candy for lunch! Halloween is really the best.

scary stories like this one:


part one: there is a wolf in the woods and he was minding his own buisness walking around looking for something to eat when he saw a big hairy ugly looking guy chopping some lumber by his wood cabin. The hairy guy saw the wolf and immediatly ran after him. The wolf turned around and darted through the woods but the hairy guy was too quick, he stepped on the wolfs tail and CHOP! it came right off. The wolf got away and lived but the hairy guy had just found some dinner. He dropped the tail in the soup pot and gave it a stir. later that night after letting it simmer for a while he ate it, fur and all. The hairy guy felt very full and happy that night so he turned out the light and decided to go to bed. once the wolf heard him snoring he came back for his revenge. CREAK! opened the door and the hairy guy woke up. "huh," he thought to him self "what was that".

part 2: The wolf's foot steps came louder and louder, soon the hairy guy could hear a faint "taily, taily I want my taily back" then it got louder "Taily, Taily I Want My Taily Back!" and louder "TAILY, TAILY I WANT MY TAILY BACK!" until the hairy guy could see the wolf's silhouette coming closer and closer. "GIVE IT TO ME NOW!"the wolf ripped the hairy guys chest open and felt around for his tail. "Is it in the stomach?" SLASH went his claws."nope not there. is it in the large intestines?" RIP "nope not there either. oh i know it's in the small intestines!" KRRRPOW "here it is". the wolf found his tail but was covered in blood so he said "eh whyy not" and ate the rest of the hairy guy" after that his fur was died red so now everyone knows never again to mess with that wolf. THE END

Halloween is my favorite holiday :)
I usually make my own decorations and carve a Jack-O-Lantern. I dress up and cross my fingers no one will trick or treat at our house so I get all the candy >:D
I go to school in a costume, my school allows it and encourages it.
I watch Halloween specials, read Wicked, (for the 7th time) watch Halloween movies like Halloweentown :D I also like watching horror and reading horror during the holiday ;) I'm going as a witch this year and to my school Halloween dance which most of all sucks but I go so I can dance to thriller. :D
