Halloween Blog Hop

 



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):

  1. Love your costume pics and I think it is wicked cool that you have been trick or treating on the same block as the Amityville Horror House even if it is just an ordinary house!!!! I love taking my daughter trick or treating every year, I get to act like a kid and no one can complain for that day :)

  9. Love the costumes.. up until a few years ago dressed up when i took my children around.. Now they have decided more fun going with their friends.. but the moving hand in the candy bowl is still i think the best part of the candy giving..

  11. Super jealous of your trick or treating haunts, regardless of how ordinary they seemed! Where I live they don't even trick or treat on Halloween, they do it the day before so the town can have a parade they day of... total silliness!

  12. How fun having your daughter working at a Halloween store! I've never been real creative with my costumes but one year I dressed up as a half-man half woman. It was the most unique costume at the party. :)
