    What were you as a kid?

    I honestly cannot remember, but these are all great!

    I'd have killed for the Sleestak.

    Why would anyone go out trick-or-treating dressed up as themselves?

    We were thugs, riding our Mongoose and Paterson nickle plated BMX bikes and wearing black Derby jackets.
    Did anyone else wear the Derby jackets?

    No Derby jacket, don't even remember what my costume was, but I still have a nasty scar on my inner thigh from falling on the broken end of a bear trap pedal scrambling to get candy. Can't remember what bike it was, maybe a Diamond Back Hot Streak.

    We did package costumes a few times, mom-made costumes at least twice then we split between Hobos and Soldiers (because both costumes included bigger bags for more candy). I would never let my son eat the amount of candy I used to consume in the week after Halloween. I could literally eat a 32 Qt Cooler full of candy in 5 days, what the hell was wrong with my parents?

    My first Hallowe'en I wore a Huckleberry Hound mask and one of those plastic bag costumes. I remember I couldn't see straight out the eye holes and I kept tripping and falling and losing my candy.

    It was also so cold most Hallowe'ens (I grew up in northern Ontario) that my mom always made me wear a snowsuit under my costumes, so I always looked like a stuffed sausage the years I was a hippy, and a hobo (I was never a princess )

    I hated that band.
    Great for kids to look at in amazement but really? Adults? This mindset of mine was in the late 70's when they were in their prime. I was in my mid to late teens. It took me another 30 years to actually give their music a chance which I ended up liking. But I'm still a bit turned off by a band that had to hide behind makeup to make it.

    One of the first Trick'r'Treat experiences I was to be the Incredible Hulk, but last minute became my favorite (green) Martian complete with tin foil antennae. Mom's costumes were the best! The antennae did actually help my dad keep an eye me too apparently, he watched me fall right off a porch because I was so happy with all that candy.
    I don't know why,... it's just MUSS easier to pedal than the other ones.

    Or how heavy a paper sack got as the night went on. Finally giving way and leaking out the bottom. Returning home only to discover half of your loot gone.

    I'm pretty sure we used pillowcases because of that.

    Funny, in the town I hail from we had 2 consecutive nights to trick or treat.
