I have this same post here, but I wanted to see what the rest of you had to share. So for those of you who read both sites, sorry this is a re-run for you.

Ok, I know there are people out there that don't celebrate Halloween because it's an evil holiday and for those people, I say :-p "ptttttttthhhhhhhh! WHATEVER!"

Growing up Halloween was so fun. When else did you get to get all dressed up, have a party at school, and get so much candy your teeth hurt until Christmas! Some of my favorite costumes I remember were the clown, witches, oh then I was a punk-rocker--where I wore my mom's really really blue eyeshadow and red lipstick and my hair in a pony tail on the side of my head! Then towards the end of my dressing up years I started dressing up as the grim reaper. I made my own costume out of my older-taller brother's graduation robe (black of course) and I had a short black slip that had a slit in it so I wore this over my head and tucked it into the graduation robe. I pulled my long hair back into a pony tail so no one could see it. I painted my face white and outlined my lips and eyes in black eyeliner. I was around 16 or so at the time so I handed out candy dressed like this. It was so fun!What are your favorite halloween memories?

Halloween was always fun growing up! My Mom came up with the coolest costumes - never a store bought thing in my childhood. A couple of my favorites growing up were the year I was a bride - quite fetching at about 4 or 5 - and this incredible martian my mom concocted out of very green double knit. I even had gloves to match with long pointy fingers.

The fun didn't stop when I was too old to trick-or-treat. No - my sister was 13 years younger than I. Bless her heart, we did her up right every smurfette, witch with the coolest hair ever, etc...

My Mom has even whipped up a few costumes in my adult years.

To those who do not know this fun - you have missed out.
