The Haunting Season (With Giveaway!)

Update: Our winner is…Robin Bielman! Congrats, Robin! I will email you with prize claim information.  

October is here. Finally! I’ve been eagerly awaiting the arrival of this month…because now I can get out all of my Halloween goodies.  Last night, I was decorating the house with skeletons and cobwebs. Getting my monster brews all ready. 😉 When it comes to Halloween, oh, but I do become a bit obsessed.Sept 13 003

For as long as I can remember, I’ve enjoyed the spooky season.  Give me scary movies, give me thrills, give me those chills–and I am a happy woman.  I’ve raised my son to be just like me. The boy loves costumes and, to him, Halloween is a thrill fest.

Soon, we’ll be bobbing for apples, playing mummy-wrap (you have to wrap your partner up in toilet paper as quickly as you can), and staying up late as we watch horror shows.  Did I mention how much I LOVE this time of the year?

But what about you?  What Halloween traditions do you enjoy the most?  One random commenter will be picked to win a $10 gift card.

Happy haunting!!!

    Candy is always a good tradition! Where I live, we get the leaves changing colors, and it really looks like Halloween in the greeting cards – without the headless monsters and the witches. It’s just a great holidays for kids – and for those of us who are still kids at heart.

    My favorite is the classic carving of the pumpkin. I love to get creative with the design and its always nice to enjoy pumpkin seed as snacks

    Now that my boys are all grown we don’t do anything anymore except carve a pumpkin. I used to make an all gruesome dinner with mummy dogs, slime and the like. It was fun. Maybe if the eldest who is married would produce a child I could start up again. Then again probably not since Halloween is his wife’s favorite holiday and she goes all out :).

  4. Jane says:

    We don’t go to haunted houses, we just snack on candy and watch whatever horror movie marathon is showing on SyFy.

  5. Tiffany Drew says:

    My favorite tradition is taking the kids trick or treating then stealing their candy. Okay, okay. That’s not my favorite (but it is up there). My favorite is watching scary movies as a family and then trying to scare each other for the rest of the night. It’s pretty easy to scare me, all they have to do is mention Michael Myers and I’ll be sleeping with the lights on 🙂

    eating all the candy

  7. Halloween is my favorite holiday! I think I could open a store with all the decorations we have. And since I have a huge sweet tooth, I like the candy tradition, too! I’ve loved helping my kids sort through their loot at the end of the night. 😉

    When I was a kid trick-or-treating was getting kind of dangerous, so my family started a tradition where every Halloween I got to pick anywhere I wanted to go out and eat, and we went there. I felt so grown up 🙂 They said it was awesome when I would pick cheap places like McDonald’s, etc, but then I got older and started picking places like Red Lobster *WINK*

    I love Halloween, it’s just my time of year, since my birthday is the next day. A couple of years ago I went to California to spend my birthday with my sister and I had the most fun. I went trick or treating with her grandkids, and we took the older one (9 years old) to an awesome neighborhood haunted house. He managed to keep his eyes open most of the time, instead of shutting them tight in fear, which was a triumph for him. 😀

    I think probably the trick or treating is the best part. Not because of the candy specifically (but that isn’t a bad part) but that the whole neigborhood is out and about and you get to see all the costumes. My husband and some other guys usually hang out in our driveway around a fire and then the ladies walk around with the kids, so it is fun. Now if I can just figure out what the kids want to be for Halloween. Do you dress up, Cynthia? If so, are you always the same thing or do you mix it up?

    Aside from the candy, I like the 31 days to Halloween events on TV
