What is the best memory you have of Halloween as a child or adolescent?
When I was 7 or 8 we went to the midnight scary movie with "Frankenstein", "Dracula" or "Dr. Jekyl and Mr. Hyde", and such calibre of shows.
But the scariest one I remember was "The Vanishing Corpse". I buried my face during the scariest scenes. We told ghost stories all during the time, too. Do kids still do that?
We trick or treated, too, in costumes. But that wasn't the highlight.
Some kids loved to do the tricks, like soaping windows and wrapping trees. They didn't wait to see whether it was to be trick or treat! They liked to do the tricks, not always too kind, either!
Family traditions are the best. We watched Two on a Guillotine-1965 and it secured my passion for scary movies. My favorite movie is the 1963 black and white version of The Haunting. My kids LOVE scary stories!
How wonderful to have Halloween traditions (all holidays, actually) that are family-based. Mother loved spooky stories. Before TV and out of radio's reach, she loved to read them out loud for entertainment.
Just the usual, trick or treating in the neighborhood. But one year my mom made me a red satin type flapper costume with black fringe and I just loved it. That was during the time The Roaring Twenties with Dorothy Provine was on TV so I loved the clothes.
Lots of Halloweens under my belt, but I really remember that costume and my mom making it for me.
When I was really little, uber little, I dressed up as a fairy and was walking around with my mom trick or treating. We come to this one house and I can't remember what scared me so badly now, but something sure scared the bejeebers out of me. I went flying down the steps, four at a time.
Imagine this teeny tiny little girl in a pink and blue fairy costume, flying down those large, descending steps, screaming her head off. My mom still tells me to this day that she's never seen me move so fast.
It's still hilarious to this day.
My memory is actually from adulthood, but I used to live in a town by the sea that dated back to the 1600's. Halloween is always cool there but this one particular year it was fairly warm and the fog settled in thick. It hung over the street lights and swirled around doorways. Jack O Lanterns lit walkways and windows in ancient houses and i just loved walking around that night because everything looked so sureal and truly spooky!
Going to the pumpkin patch to pick out pumpkins. I always enjoyed that. Also, decorating the house with Halloween decorations and trick-or-treating.
