  2. My son in law dressing as Michael Myers from the movie Halloween. On Halloween night he stands in the shadows of the porch and waits.... When the kids come up to the porch, He will walk out to scare them.. They all run away screaming!! lol He only does this to the older kids.. They all love it!! Will sit out on our porch steps to pass out candy. The ones that run away most likely never come back for candy.. We have heard the next Halloween someone say, " That is the house Michael Myers was at last year!" That is his clue to start walking out by the house again!

  3. I love Halloween!! I decorate the house with all my Halloween ornaments - also have ceramic decorations that my mother made in the 70's. My cat, Ruby, who has now passed away, used to sit in the bay window with a little witch hat on and greet the trick or treaters - the little kids loved it!!!

  4. Hmmmm, best Halloween trick, I must confess I dont really have any tricks, just love decorating the house and dressing like a witch (my favorite costume) and having fun with family and friends. and if I can get my hands on some dry ice, well, I fill my cauldron and double double toil and trouble. What? its just a little hocus pocus, right? wynteraven@gmail.com

  5. Halloween or Samhain is one of my favorite holidays. I love to trick friends or loved ones. Each year is different, one year it was fake arms everyone hanging out of vehicles, doors windows etc. Another year it was I turned everyones yard into graveyards with dirt and foam stones. Another year I turned several friends cars into mummies. I love your site and wish you had an event closer to me.

  6. We used to put one of those battery-operated "screaming" door mats on the path up to our front door and cover it with leaves. Kids would step on it (not seeing it) and it would SCREAM and so would they! It was so much fun watching them! (we did warn the parents with small children). Halloween is my ALL TIME FAVE holiday!

  7. Each year we keep adding to our indoor decorations. We have been moving more and more toward a Haunted Mansion feel. This year my husband created an awesome changing portrait that is modeled after The Haunted Mansion's. We have enjoyed having company and their reaction to it.

  8. We have two dummies made of a plastic pumpkin head, Jason Voorhees mask, and bent hangers, and filled out with loads of plastic shopping bags taped to the hanger "skeleton". Then we outfit them with old clothes and boots, and sit them outside in two different locations the week of Halloween. At night, in darkness of course, we move them to different locations/ even have them waving or saluting! Drives my neighbors bonkers, since they cant catch us moving them!

  10. A long time ago when I was in my teen years we made a coffin and my younger brother got in dressed all Dead looking and when the kids came up on the porch, he threw open the coffin and scared the you know whats outta those kids, it was a BLAST. Love your giveaways! Jaja tjlburke at gmail dot com

  11. We love playing Fear Factor with gross looking food. Take ordinary food and mush it, blend it or freeze it and then make people taste it. They have to pick a number of items to taste and whomever is brave enough to taste the most wins. Food doesn't taste bad, it's all psyche!

  12. Last year I soaked some cooked spaghetti in coffee to make it dark brown, and looking like worms. I put pieces in some glasses, and watched for the reaction. Pretty funny! Happy Halloween to everyone!

  13. I really am a witch, so my trick is wearing my ceremonial cape, filling my real cauldron with treats and carrying my besom (broomstick). Being fifty years of age and fairly ugly helps too! When the front door is knocked, I creep around the side door and just the sight of me is trick enough! :) Happy Samhain all and may love, light and laughter bless you <3. I am Angie D on facebook and should appear on King of mice studi friends list. I tried entering my email, but the gremlin ate it! Just in case, it's Dixon_angie@hotmail.co.uk
