Halloween Traditions

Our celebration of Halloween this year began with having the kid's portraits taken in their costumes. Our first party was our community Halloween party this past weekend. Then on Thursday the 30th we will go to the town where Dr. Hubby's office is and trick or treat from 5-730pm. Dr. Hubby hands out candy from his office. Then everyone gathers in the town square for the parade. Everyone who has dressed up walks around the main intersection of this little town. The local grocery store and others give away a treat bag to the kids.

My favorite Halloween was when we made a haunted house in this old house my BIL&SIL were gonna tear down...It was SO much fun! We had lots of friends over and had a great party! It was Sppooookkkyyy!

How are you celebrating Halloween this year? What was your favorite Halloween?

What a great tradition!

Hey, did you ever decide where you all were going to go on break before it got to cold???

Since our kids are grown and gone, I guess nothing. At one time my wife had a fabric store and would make costumes to display in the store. We took some of those costumes to my daughter so our grandkids would be able to use them this year.

Our favorite tradition is the Corn Maze and haunted house. Plus, we love making carmel apples and popcorn balls...yummm!

This is our first year of not handing out candy...:o( Our daughter's High School Football team has a game. Then we are going to the local haunt for the best cheeseburgers ever!

You have wonderful traditions.

We have some good friends come over and we trick or treat on our street. It is fun but very low key.

WOW, that's so awesome...mine will be boring in comparison...
see my grand kids come over...or go to the trunk or treat or stay home and pass out candy...or all or part of the above! LOL
