    “It’s almost Halloween! Love it? Hate it? Best costume you’ve ever had?” No one in my family has ever been that fond of Halloween–but my mother made a pretty good pirate outfit for me long ago!

  2. Tammy V

    Not a big Halloween fan but I do like the movies at that time of year. I also enjoy walking my grandkids around for trick or treat.

  3. Kate Sarsfield

    We don’t do the big ‘trick or treat’ thing that you guys do in the States, but, having grown up in Ireland I do celebrate Samhain, the Celtic festival of light fading into dark and love this time of year.

  4. I love Halloween more and more over the years! Not necessarily the spooky aspects of it, but just being able to geek out and dress up in costume, eat tons of candy, and enjoy the fall weather. My favorite costumes over the past few years have been Wonder Woman, Hermione Granger, Luna Lovegood, and a steampunk angel.

  5. Halloween is my favorite! My husband and I were married on Halloween and we had a Halloween themed wedding. My favorite costume ever was a zombie bride. =)

  6. Darlene Owen

    I love it as I love to see all the little ones that come to our door. My favorite is when I made my son his first clown costume.

  7. Danielle Hammelef

    I don’t really like Halloween, but my favorite costume was when I made my self a “Smartie Pants” by attaching Smartie candies to my pants.

    I do like Halloween , I just dont like that its going to be the end of another year and its going to get cold and depressing 🙁

  9. I’ve never been all that big on Halloween, but a couple years ago we had fun doing the kids’ costumes. Jade was Tardis and Danielle was “Raining Cats and Dogs” (I’m sad to say Noah was a random store-bought costume, and I don’t remember which one he was that year—he wasn’t interested in a homemade costume).

    I don’t like dressing up myself. But I love helping my kids get dressed up. I helped my son do his make up to be a zip face zombie, a zip face werewolf. My youngest was a creepy sock monkey. My daughter has been a glittery vampire. My oldest son has been a nerd, a creepy bloody guy that had safety pins holding his mouth shut.

    I love Halloween! I used to be very much into costuming for it, but since getting to that age (and health) where I don’t actually do anything on or around Halloween (like parties), that kind of wore off for me. I DO love seeing clever costumes on trick-or-treaters or at work, though. If I can break out my Old Lady hat for a moment here: When I was a kid, our costumes were never store-bought. You made them with ingenuity, and sometimes sweat and blood, and your own creativity. Nowadays, 90% of the kids that come to the door are in some polyester costume-in-a-bag monstrosity that involved no creativity at all. I understand convenience, but it’s such a waste (especially considering that costume was probably made in a sweatshop and will end up in a landfill in a short period of time). So I give double handfuls of candy to any kid who shows up in a homemade costume. And I always will.

    Absolutely love Halloween! It’s my favorite holiday, especially since its during my birthday month! My favorite costume isn’t my own, but my kids 2 years ago when they dressed as characters from Teen Titans Go!

  13. Colleen Capelle

    My favorite costume was when I was a genie!! The only bad thing was it was the only chilly Halloween, but it was worth it!! I would still buy a replica of it and wear it again if I could 🙂

  14. Debra Branigan

    Love Halloween. My favorite costume(s) was when my cousin and my siblings (there were 9 of us), dressed as football players and cheerleaders, except the girls were the football players and the boys were cheerleaders complete with wigs and makeup (this was late ’60s). Costumes were all made by my mom and aunt. It was a fun night.

  15. Then you religiously submit your site to all of the search engines.

    To increase my website rankings, I only submit to sites which usually are ranked well.
    It has worked maybe a charm for me.

    I’m really not fond of it. I love the children and all their costumes though. Best costume that I’ve seen was a zombie.

  17. Leah Shumack

    I love Halloween – seeing what all the kids are dressed up as! My favorite costume was a couple of years ago when I was a contestant from the Price is Right!

  18. Judy Cox

    We love Halloween !!!! I don’t dress up much, usually just a Witch, but I always went all out with my children and grandchildren!!
