My favorite Halloween I was just a smidge too old for trick-or-treat, I was 16 I think.

We had a freak (yes even freakish for MN!) snowstorm that dropped 2 feet of snow on Halloween night.

A couple friends and I decided to go sledding.
Went down the hill a few times, got in the car to go home.... about a 2-3 mile drive.
Got her Dad's little escort up the big hill ok..... then it got stuck.... 7 times.....
I think we pushed more than drove that night!!!!
:)

Same blizzard I bet!!!!! '91?
Dang, I'm old....
On 2nd thought I was 17.

Wow I remember we'd be out for hours trick or treating (unlike now where my son only has an hour and a half). Everyone knew everyone in my neighborhood so there were no worries. We'd be out weather it was nice, cold, snowing, or raining. We didn't care. I remember one year when Gremlins came out I was Spike. Had that awfule plastic mask you couldn't see out of. I also remember being a red devily kooky spook thing. Anybody else remember kooky spooks? Big inflatable things you wore ontop of your head? Our pillow cases were always full and HEAVY by the end of the night.

The one that stands out with me is. I am the 3rd of 8 kids.
--We loved our candy, ---
Us 4 older ones tied a rope around my baby brother approx 2 yr at the time --then tied the rope to the stairs railing. We did think of saftey that far.
Climb out the upstairs window onto the porch and when trick or treaters came we dropped him down in front them. brother loved it - he would scream w/laughter and it would scare away the kids. Mom couldn't figure what happen that kids sudden stopped coming. welllll kids started to approach the porch and brother dropped in front of them and mom who was looking for kids on the porch. Leave it to say we didn't get to enjoy that years candy and she took ours all away and gave out that night to others. Then we all had to face dad the next morning as he worked nights. I think that part was the scariest holloween.

Home made treats were the best! My mom would pop corn and we had so much fun bagging it up into individual bags. Every bag got 2 cups of popped corn and one DumDum sucker. Our house and the one down the street with the candied and caramel apples were the faves of the neighborhood.

I remember staying out till 11 pm, and many houses and kids were still active!

I also remember discovering ZOTZ candy by eating one. When it foamed in my mouth, I was pretty sure I had been poisoned! Good thing there were more in my bag, so I could read that they were supposed to foam!

OMG, that is the funniest story and my type of humor. But I never had the nerve to do such things. I left it to my older brother to have fun and get in trouble for it!
Thanks for the major laugh!
