Halloween traditions

Hey guys :wave:
So as Halloween is fast approaching, I thought it would be cool for us to share our Halloween traditions, either things you did as a child, and was growing up or even as the age you are now. It's totally up to you :thumb:
So I know for me as a child I used to go trick or treating just around the area where I live, and I remember my costume usually involved a bin bag as a cape.
Now I am older I usually just watch a horror film, and get some snacks in. :heart:

Look forward to reading your replies :thumb:


Sharing is caring :heart:
" And everywhere I am, there you'll be, your love made me make it through, oh I owe so much to you "
" So I say thank you for the music, the songs I'm singing, thanks for all the joy they're bringing, who can live without it, I ask in all honestly what would life be? Without a song or a dance, what are we? So I say thank you for the music, for giving it to me "
'' It's a beautiful day and I can't stop myself from smiling "

    As a kid, I never did anything for Halloween. I live out in the sticks and we'd never get any visitors for sweets either. Now I've got kids and live more centrally in the village I've had to start doing stuff. I hate it.
    Always make more of an effort for Guy Fawkes night
    Yesterday is history
    Tomorrow is a mystery
    But today is a gift
    That’s why it’s call the present

    I grew up in the states, so Halloween was all the rage and something to take very seriously. I use to get over an entire pillow case full of candy each year. It reminds me of really fun times. The UK hasnt and will never grasp Halloween like the yanks but thats ok, as the previous commenter has said, you have Guy Fawkes, which is something I dont really understand but people are more into it. Every country has their own traditions and I dont think Halloween will ever be a UK tradition.

    I think Halloween is a UK tradition cos I know people who make a big deal and have parties and things. But I guess it all depends on the person doesnt it.

    I don't celebrate Halloween, and never have done. I don't understand it at all...

    Halloween originated in this country, The US have commercialized it beyond belief.
