Survey: Your Halloween Memories

One of my favorite holidays of all time is coming up in a few weeks: Halloween, obviously! And no, it’s not my favorite just because it’s my birthday (coolest birthday ever, no biggie). It’s one of the most fun days of the year – the day where we all get to dress up in super awesome costumes, get free candy and… well, I don’t think there needs to be any more explanation here.

    1. What’s your first Halloween memory ever? When I was almost 3 I wore a dinosaur costume that my mom sewed fire made of felt to, so I was a dragon.

    2. Describe your best Halloween: Most of them…

    3. Now describe your worst Halloween: When I was almost 10, I was a corpse bride, so I had a real old style wedding dress from Goodwill and a lot of face makeup. I looked awesome, but it got unusually hot that year. So we were in the mall during the day, and there was a Radio Disney event going on. I won one small event, but then my cousin and I were waiting for the costume contest and I started to black out. She brought me back to my mom, where I proceeded to puke into an emptied trick-or-treating bag. Then security cleared a path for me to get to a restroom, and I changed into the tanktop and jeans my mom brought me just in case.

    4. What was your favorite Halloween costume you’ve ever worn? I’m planning on going as the Joker this year, so I’m looking forward to that.

    5. What was the worst costume you’ve ever worn? I was a magician one year, and although this wasn’t Halloween day, we went to a fight fest and my mom put a makeup unibrow and mustache on me. Thank goodness she didn’t do that on Halloween itself.

    6. Have you ever been to a huge Halloween party? Not more than 20 kids.

    7. What were your Halloween traditions as a kid? For the last 5 years I’ve trick-or-treated for a few streets and then gone back to help my dad hand out candy.

    8. Who did you used to go trick-or-treating with? My parents, but only my mom goes anymore.

    9. Did you ever get in trouble by the cops on Halloween? No, and I don’t intend to.

    10. Have you ever dressed up as one of the Disney princesses? Sleeping Beauty when I was 4.

    11. What’s the worst thing you ever got when trick-or-treating? Anything that wasn’t a kitkat.

    12. What candy did you used to hope you would get when trick-or-treating? Kitkats, but now my friends and I trade candy around after we’re done trick-or-treating. I got 39 kitkats that way one year.

    13. Did your mom ever make your costumes? Just my dragon one from when I was 2.

    14. Did you ever go to school dressed up? I’m homeschooled, so no.

    15. Did you ever get seriously scared on Halloween? Over what? I try to avoid that stuff.

    16. Have you ever been in a shaving cream fight? No,…should I have?

    17. Did anyone ever egg you or your house? Never. My house is known as ‘that house that gives out the full-sized candy bars.’

    18. Have you ever gone to a haunted house or a haunted corn maze? Yes, but I left after the first scene.

    19. Was Halloween better when you were a kid or now? The experience changes, but it never gets worse.

    20. Have you ever carved something really cool into a pumpkin? My mom and my sister made it look like a big jack-o-lantern was eating a small one.
