    I would sincerely LOVE to win this. Halloween traditions: every day is Halloween for me but it’s socially acceptable to decorate in the autumn. This would make a great addition to my jack o lantern decorations.
    Thank you.

    When we grew up, you could go anywhere and everywhere trick or treating. Understandably, it’s not such a good idea, but it sure was fun!

    With the sunset coming early on Holloween night (thanks to the time change), we ate dinner early and headed out with pillow cases to gather our treats and white chalk for tricks. We would write at the end of the driveways if the treats were bad or if things like pennies or tooth brushes were handed out. “Warning, no candy here! Just tooth brushes,etc.”. Then we would return home and dump our loot on the floor and have a candy swap.

    Our favorite Halloween tradition is to eat chili and cornbread with pumpkin pie for desert. We’ve done this since our kids were little and now do it before we go out trick-or-treating with the grands!

    I let my grandson help with the decorating of the house and yard. When we’re done we head to the kitchen to make some Halloween snacks. He loves to use the internet to help us come up new ideas. This helps us when we run to the store. His idea is a Halloween explosion, which means you never have enough.

    My favorite Halloween traditions are decorating the house with decorations we have collected over the years and baking seasonal treats.

    It’s not much of a tradition, but my family and I watch as many scary movies as we can in October. We revel in all things Halloween, so we do as many things as we can in October to celebrate the season.

    We decorate on October 1st and 2nd. Since my sons have gotten older, we don’t do extensive decorating outdoors. However, my grandsons love my inside decorations so much. I now have a table in the foyer – which would be the perfect place for this beautiful pumpkin. It would be “hands off” to the grandchildren. Thank you for this wonderful chance.

    When I was a teen we celebrated Halloween by rolling yards with toilet paper. It was sooo much fun!!!

    Every year we start decorating the first weekend of October to relish every day of the Halloween spirit. We decorate a black Halloween tree with skeleton lights, pumpkin lights and spiders. Anything creepy, goes. It’s our favorite time of year. We have more Halloween boxes in the attic than Christmas. 😉

    Our favorite tradition is to make our own costumes! Many supplies have come from the second hand store or borrowed items adorned with a secret touch of our own to make them ours! It is always fun to see what creation we can come up with and they always come out adorable! It always makes for imaginations to run and be creative galore!

    My mother would always pull out and display the hand made Halloween costume that her mother made for her when she was 6 years old, almost 80 years ago. My grandmother made this orange dress with black appliques and hat with no pattern. It is always a lovely reminder of what a special, talented lady she was. My siblings and I “confiscated” the costume after she displayed it several Halloweens ago and had it framed for her. Now it is hanging in Mom’s house on constant display to remind us all of our dear grandmother and our mother’s childhood.

    One fall, when I was a girl in the 70s, my granddad brought some treasures from the side of the road. Horse apples he called them. They were green and brain like and so Halloween! I was fascinated. So I took them home, and decorated our windows. Now every fall I find myself searching a Beau ‘darc tree, gather some horse apples, and recreate a good memory!

    My family and I love to watch scary movies on Halloween. We enjoy drinking hot cider and handing out candy to kids that come to our door as we have the movies playing. It’s a fun way to enjoy this spooky holiday!

    All of my brothers and sisters meet at my mother’s house on Halloween. We take all of the kids trick-or-treating together! My Mom lives in a very safe neighborhood so it’s great for the kids and they love running from house to house together!

    Autumn is a season to embrace nature & its bounty. I love filling my home with pumpkins, gourds, & other treats from nature….leaves, twigs, & even dried grasses.

    Handmade costumes and ‘fun-sized’ treats epitomized my childhood Halloweens. My grandmother was a ‘weekend seamstress’ and made my Halloween costumes (and Sunday dresses, to boot). My Gran left no detail unnoted, adding whatever bits and bobs needed to complete the look. If I decided to be a princess, she ensured that I collected M&Ms and Tootsie Roll pops looking like royalty. It’s twenty-plus years later, and my grandmother, long since passed. But, when Halloween rolls around and I stroll through costume shops, I can’t help but turn up my nose a bit. Nothing will ever beat Gran’s handmade!

    We carve pumpkins and I take my daughter to see her poppy and nana for cookie baking and trick or treating! Then she watches Hocus Pocus and eats the cookies she and her nana made!

    I make witch’s hat cookies and give them with candy to the kids and their parents. They call me the cookie lady. It’s something small they can eat right then and the parents like that they get a treat, too.

    Halloween is my Favorite holiday! There’s no pressure just fun! We make carmel apples, haunted gingerbread houses and put up a Halloween Village just to name a few of our traditions. Of course we decorate inside and out and dress up too!

    My daughter and husband used to have a tradition of decorating the house together and then trick or treating together. They did it every year for 13 years. A few years ago we moved and it seems every Halloween my husband was either traveling or the town we were living in had too many rules about decorating….it just hasn’t been the same. This year is the first year since they stopped, 4 years ago, that we are started to talk and plan and I think they are gong to try to start up their old tradition of decorating together again. My daughter is a little old now for trick or treating but we are thinking of hosting a party instead since its a Saturday night. I hope they do restart their tradition, they are really good at it and it always warmed my heart watching them work on it together.

    i love Autumn and Halloween. My children and I love making caramel apples every year and we have bowls of different toppings they add (candy corn, peanuts, m&m’s, etc.). Also, my daughter and I make pumpkin dip and serve it with apples, YUMMO, I’m getting hungry just thinking about the flavors.

    Our favorite Halloween tradition is for my husband and I to hang out in our Halloween-decorated rockers on the driveway (with me in my big witchy hat:) and hand out treats to both the little kids AND their parents with a galvanized bucket filled with beer and wine and plastic to-go cups for the adults. Its so much fun to see all those sweet faces dressed up and excited — and to surprise their parents with a likely much needed treat — that actually may be a trick, now that I think about it – but its definitely one they all seem to enjoy! We have lived in many different states during Halloween season but even if its warm, I am known to have a big mug full of gluwein in my hand — makes me feel like the wonderful cool weather holiday seasons have begun! A close second favorite, however, is pumpkin carving. My husband has become such a master pumpkin carver, he and the kids have a lot of fun picking out new templates each year to try and outdo themselves from the year before. Its always such fun to see what they have come up with and to see the looks on the little trick or treaters’ faces when they see these sweet colorful pumpkins come to life!
