We put a can with dry ice in the back of the rocket with a small rubber hose that we snaked through it and up into my mask. I could blow into the hose to make ‘smoke’ pour out the back.

    My favorite Halloween memory was going to Halloween parties, watching scary movies and of course going trick or treating with all my friends!

  62. Kathy Borgen says

    My favorite memories about Halloween are making up our own costumes with friends with funny clothes and makeup (we didn’t spend any money on costumes) and trick or treating through our whole small town for 3-4 hours. We used a pillowcase and made our candy last until into the Christmas season. Living in Minnesta, sometimes the costumes had to be big enough to go over the winter coats. Fun memories!

  63. My mom used to make our costumes. SO every year me and my sister would always win the best costume awards.

  64. Leigh Anne Borders says

    One of my favorite things I did as a child was go to my grandmothers for trick or treating. We would arrive early and eat dinner. She lived a HUGE neighborhood so we would start early and end late.

  65. aaron reck says

    Costumes and of course the candy. It was fun to go out as well and just enjoy the night.

  66. Austin Baroudi says

    I loved going trick or treating! And the best was the year I dressed as Lucy from the Peanuts!

  70. Allyson becker says

    My favorite childhood memories are multi fold. The main one involves my grandfather and his love for the Flying Ace. He was a pilot and he always had the Flying Ace on the side of the plane. I also remember this beat up Snoopy which sat on his desk. Now, it was passed on to me, and even though it is is flaking and in bad shape, I still cherish it, because it was my grandfather’s.

  71. I love snoopy and my best memories is trying to hit every street in my neighborhood if we conquered that goal we were the #1 Trick or Treaters.

  72. As a child, one year I was very creative and made a robot costume out of cardboard boxes and plastic tubing, complete with blinking lights. It even had a special door that opened on the front to insert the candy. It was quite a hit. Thank you for the chance to win.

  73. Jessica Ruggiero says

    I loved going trick or treating with my mom when I was really little. We would look at all the neat costumes together.

  74. I remember going to the Carney’s Store in town to pick out a boxed halloween costume. One year I was Cinderella. The mask was so hot and scratchy but I wore it anyways.

  75. I just loved dressing up each year.

  76. B Alexandra says

    I remember my parents would go all out for Halloween. They would make a huge spider web on the side of the house with string and then a graveyard. It is still my favorite holiday because they loved it so much and instilled that in us kids.

  77. Dressing up and going out with friends is my favorite memory.

  78. We didn’t celebrate Halloween… which in turn, has caused me to go overboard with my kids lol

  79. Kenneth Helmick says

    I used to always dress as a clown for halloween. I guess you can’t really do that anymore. #ClownLivesMatter

  80. Jill Myrick says

    We love dressing up and going trick or treating in our neighborhood. Most people made goodies such as fudge or cookies and you never had to check your candy. My mom always made popcorn balls and caramel apples and there would be huge lines at our door. I miss the simpler times like that.

  81. I loved piling in the car to go to Grandma’s house before Trick or Treating started. She also gave us the best candy. Then we would Trick or Treat our neighbors and relatives, which were often the same people.

  82. Carolyn Daley says

    My favorite Halloween memory was the year my mom passed on her senorita costume to me.
