Boo!

The Friday 5 for this week concerns Halloween

  1. What was your first Halloween costume?
  2. What was your best costume and why?
  3. Did you ever play a trick on someone who didn't give you a treat?
  4. Do you have any Halloween traditions? (ie: Family pumpkin carving, special dinner before trick or treating, etc.)
  5. Share your favorite scary story...real or legend!

  1. What was your first Halloween costume?
    If I recall correctly my sister and I were both bunny rabbits.

  2. What was your best costume and why?
    One year I dressed as Frankenstein's monster. The monster's head was made from a KFC bucket, covered in white paper and colored green, with eyes and hair made from construction paper (and ears that stuck out!) I held a crosspiece of 2x2 wood and the monster's shirt was on this (with stuffed arms). I wore a pair of my Dad's pants and shoes. The monster's arms (sleeves) were stuffed and he had gloves and held the trick-or-treat bag. My eyes were just above his belt and he was much taller than me. I looked down past the hem of the shirt to walk! My aunt thought is was my Dad dressed up. (My sister dressed as Igor that year; we tended to coordinate our costumes).

  3. Did you ever play a trick on someone who didn't give you a treat?
    No

  4. Do you have any Halloween traditions? (ie: Family pumpkin carving, special dinner before trick or treating, etc.)
    When I was growing up we carved pumpkins. We watched the Charlie Brown Halloween special. We went downtown and watched the town Halloween parade. When I was in High School I was in the marching band (in the parade). These days our only tradition is to turn out the lights :) And I always wear black on Halloween.

  5. Share your favorite scary story...real or legend!
    The Legend of Sleepy Hollow (Disney animation). Rent it.
