    What's your favorite halloween memory? What's the scariest thing that's happened to you, if anything? And what's your favorite halloween costume?
    fave memory - egging houses of people that 'didnt believe in halloween'. ITS CALLED NO ONE BELEIVES IT IN, cept satanic cults that sacrifice people on that day XD. ok me n my friend mike were walking down and we rang a house and asked for candy, as the standard, the guy screams I DONT BELIEVE IN HALLOWEEN, and we get angry, cuz he then slams the door in our face. so we egg is house, his car, and hit his cat

    scariest thing - i got jumped at last years Canada's Wonderland FEARFEST cuz i had 40 bux and candy, so the ppl that mugged me were only my age and i fended them off. they first were like, can i have candy, then, give me your candy, and one threatened to stab me, which is dumb cuz Wonderland has metal detectors in every entrance/exit. lucky, i called my friends, who just got off the ride (i had 5 friends [kev,matt,mike,dave,james] who were all dressed like gangsters, compared to their 3) and they ran off.

    best costume - i saved up 500 dollars over 1 1/2 years and bought a full body costume of a zombie. it looked so realistic, and i scared the SH*T outta everybody, and i still have it, even tho it fitted me from age 13-16, and i hang it up on halloween.

    Halloween, also known as "All Hallows Eve," was originally a pagan holiday designed ta disguise ppl in order ta confuse evil spirits 'cause they believed that the border that separated the spirit realm and our world was at its thinnest on day of Halloween. This allowed the evil spirits ta roam free in our world and disguisin' oneself was the only defense against them. It was later adopted by the Christian religion and dubbed "All Saints Eve" 'cause the next day was November 1st, which is "All Saints Day." Halloween was revitalized durin' the 1950s for children and has evolved inta what u c today.

    If u would like ta know more 'bout Halloween, there's this show that they had on the History channel called "The Haunted History of Halloween" that could help wit any ques. that u may have 'bout the holiday. They also might have it on youtube or somethin'.

    Not quite Joe. I have seen that program and it has more holes then a ghost costume.

    There was an extensive discussion on this subject last year (and every year) found here. My own responses are here, here, and here. I'l reprint my first response but you will need to use the other links.
    This seems to come up every year doesn't it.

    Halloween myths: Halloween is a pagan holiday.

    This is false, it is a Catholic holiday that was set at the same time as a pagan holiday either to try and replace it or simply because of the similar symbolism.

    Halloween is derived from the name "All Hollowed Eve". It was the night before "All Saints Day" and "All Souls Day", solemn days of rememberance. Just like Mardi Gras became a party before Lent All Hollowed Eve became an evening of parties and feasting. Since All Saints Day was a day to remember the martyrs and saints who had gone before as well as your own "sainted" ancestors this symbolism worked it's way into the pangentry and celebration that was All Hollowed Eve.

    The confusion that occurs is because it is/was a Catholic holiday in a mostly Prodestant nation. Since Queen Elizabeth forbade all observances connected with All Souls' Day Prodestants did not and have not observed it. As such in the US there was no custom of "knocking at doors to beg for a "soul cake" in return for which the beggars promised to pray for the dead of the household". There was however plenty of pranks.

    Those pranks (a tradition from Scotland and Ireland where they called it "mischief night") became so bad that in the 1920/30's boy scout troops organized neighborhood "trick or treating" as a way to counter act the often destructive pranks that had become common from tipping outhouses to cruelty to animals and people. Hence the phrase "trick or treat". By treating the children you were preventing the tricks.

    ...and there you go.


    All Hallows' Eve

    My favorite memory would be trick or treating with my friends family when I was 12 and watching old black and white vampire movies afterward.

    tee-hee! I know! SO trick-or-treating before anything else halloween? We can take JEremiah, and brandi and TJ are already my charges, and I think collen too (vomit on a spoon I know but his MOM asked if I would take him) And so I suppose to even the unplesantness we'll take Dre and Netta too (I doubt they'll get to go otherwise) What do you think?

    You never really loved me/You never really cared/It was all just a game to boost your ego/Those feelings never really there/ I'm filing emotional bankruptcy/My heart can take no more debt/Theres no more "money" there to spend. === Besides tee hee SHE loves me!
