Halloween is 20 days away. I know that's not really close, but I really wanted to make this topic soon. Hope this will still be active until it's a bit closer to the actual holiday.

But anyway.

What do you guys do on Halloween? Do you have a yearly tradition such as go trick-or-treating or give out candy? Do you visit haunted houses or go to Halloween parties? Or do you just sit at home and watch scary movies? Or do you just do nothing special?

What about this year, what are your plans for this year? (if you have any yet). If you're trick-or-treating or going to a party, what are you going as? If you don't have plans yet,come back when you have plans what you think you might do?

Sorry for all the questions. lol


When I was younger ,I would go trick-or-treating around the neighborhood, though I got too old for that. I've only been to two Halloween parties so far. One at my youth group where I was an emo zombie, and one my senior year at a friends house where I was Ash. (A pretty good Ash if I say so myself.)I tried giving out candy one year but it got boring since not alot of kids live nearby.

This year I don't have much plans. Won't be giving out candy since my dad can't afford some. We're not even decorating the house except what we have decorated inside. My dad believes that if you put Halloween decorations up outside, that people assume you're giving out candy. All my family is likely to do this year is sit at home and watch scary/Halloween related movies, if anything at all. I'm hoping to getting invited to a Halloween party, though it's not likely knowing how un-social I am. If I do I'm thinking of going as a hipster. I just really want to make fun of them. XD

How about you guys?

Absolutely nothing. Maybe I'll scare the kids with my overlarge teeth. I don't know.

I used to go trick-or-treating, but then I obviously got too old and started a new tradition with my friends. They come over my house and we watch horror films all night with candy. Also, we give out candy to the trick-or-treaters.

Party as usual probably, maybe going to a club or something afterwards idk. My friends back home and I have always made a big thing out of Halloween and made sure we have fun one way or another - my favourite time being when I went to a party as an undead leprechaun. And people here seem pretty into it too so... yeah, should be a good laugh.

Going to the corn maze. :D That won't happen on Halloween itself, but it's part of the Halloween experience for me.

Probably it's going to be a night of watching movies and eating candy. I might have to work late though so Halloween might have to be moved to the weekend before or after for me. :(

      I actually got invited to a party this year. Apparently it's going to be really big which is kinda what scares me. I'll probably just go for a bit then come back home and eat candy that I bought because it's no longer free. :P

      I don't know what I'll be going as for Halloween, so I might stay at home and give out candy.

      I just stay home and watch horror movies and eat seafood. I have not been trick-or-treating since 1998 (12 years ago).

        I am 24. Definitely not doing trick-or-treating, and we'll get five trick-or-treaters tops here. I suck at making costumes and I really don't like dressing up anyway. Horror movies aren't my thing. So I'm probably just... not going to do anything but order pizza, like normal. Halloween seems to be something I outgrew after graduating from high school...

        We don't really celebrate Halloween in Australia... well we kinda do, but not nearly to the extent of America. People have Halloween parties (because it's an excuse to get dressed up and get drunk) and there are always a few kids trick-or-treating (and I do only mean a few), but that's basically all.

        We always leave some candy by the door just in case we do get any trick-or-treaters (the doorbell never rings more than twice), and my own personal tradition is to go to work and look at all the people coming in in their Halloween costumes on their way out to parties. I think my favourite was when a guy came in in a mankini.

        I do like Halloween but I don't go trick-or-treating since I'm a big girl but I love watching a nice scary movie or two, and man I do a hell of an evil laugh.

        I'm 20, so don't expect me knocking on your door saying "Trick or treat?". However the candy is enticing so I guess it's not a big deal.

          If I worked Halloween, that might've been a different story, actually! But since I don't, I'm kind of just sitting at home on that day, watching all the other kids going trick-or-treating and whatever. XD

          Working. Whether in the morning or evening, I don't know. If I do the evening shift, we'll have a million kids in the mall getting candy from the stores. It's a safe Trick-or-Treat location. Either last year or the year before, I got to hand out candy. It was pretty fun!

          If I'm at home, I'm going to do the usual stuff I do at home. My apartment's a few blocks from campus, so no kids Trick-or-Treating. Might buy candy just in case, and then eat it all later.

          I'm probably not going to be doing anything. I'm 'too old' (though I look like I'm fourteen ... which to some people it still too old) for Trick or Treating and I haven't actually done so in years. I don't think the optimist festival that i will be going to in order to watch my brother's band is on Halloween this year so I'll probably end up sitting at my house. no one trick or treats on our street because it would take forever and wouldn't be worth it so we won't be giving out candy either.

              I stopped trick or treating a couple of years ago, and since I live on the main road we never get visitors. >_> So yeah. Nothing odd for me.

                I play Dungeons & Dragons every Wednesday and Hallowe'en falls on a Wednesday this year so I'll be at a friend's house (probably?) ignoring the door that day.

                If DnD is cancelled or it weren't happening, the plan would be to plunk down and play a scary video game while my roommates watch because they're wusses and won't play any themselves but love watching, pausing only to hand out candy to kids at the door because my roommates also refuse to do that. (Although I'd probably be able to make them do one or the other.)

                I usually have class Wednesday nights, but I have it off this Halloween! :D Why couldn't that have been last year when they were showing Ghostbusters at the movie theatre? ;___;

                My plan is either:

                A) Stay home, put on some Halloween music, and hand out candy at the door. I wasn't home last year and apparently we got a lot more kids then we were expecting last time around.

                2) I'm searching and holding out hope that someone in Toronto is screening Ghostbusters. If they are, I am there.

                3) Maybe going down town for a "Day of the Dead" (or whatever it is actually called. That Mexican holiday?) food truck festival at night. I hate entry tickets though. I don't want to pay to get in if I need to pay for the food too

                4) Whatever I end up doing, I for sure what to give Slender a shot. And maybe this... pixel game Lightning told me about that I can't remember the name of

                EDIT: 5) Most importantly, watch It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown

                To be honest I don't do much on Halloween,maybe sit around and watch a scary movie or two for a couple of hours.We always have a stock of candy somewhere in the cupboard,in case people who are trick and treating come,but all I really do on Halloween is eat candy and watch movies :|.

                I really don't have any idea what I'm doing for Halloween. My main plan on Oct 31st is to visit my nan, as it's also her birthday then.

                I'll be doing the same thing I do every night. School/work stuff, poking around online, playing games, whatever. I haven't done anything for Halloween in years...we don't even get any trick-or-treaters so I don't even hand out candy.
