I love Halloween! Not as much as some do though. My brother and sister-in-law have me beat, they got married in Vegas one Halloween by Dracula. My mother dressed up as a mummy because she was the "mummy of the groom". I kid you not!
But I can remember as a teen dressing up (usually as a cheerleader), and going out with my friends to Trick-or-treat and egging each other. Man that was fun! Messy, but fun! And cold too, I'm originally from the northeast, USA. Near Amityville, NY in fact, and I've gone Trick-or-treating on the same block as the Amityville Horror House. That might sound cool and scary, but it wasn't. It's just an ordinary house. One year they left a bench at the end of the driveway with candy in it.
As an adult I still dress up, but I don't egg anyone nowadays, although there are a few people I'd like to. What I like most, is the dress up part. It's fun to just let go and be someone else for a little while, and I like to have my picture taken too. My daughter just got her first "real" job aside from babysitting. She's working at a Halloween store. Can you say 25% discount? Heck yeah, I'm going shopping!
Here are some of my costumes over the years (there's more but I don't have access to those photos at the moment):
