Of course that's the best part of Halloween when you're a kid! I loved dressing up in my costume and traipsing all over creation with my friends. There was always such a feeling of excitement in the air, like anything could happen. Choosing costumes, making them, picking out the candy to hand out from our house - all these things were so much fun.
So it's not surprising that trick-or-treating came in #1 in the "What did you like best about Halloween when you were a kid" poll. It won with 6 votes. 2nd place was a tie, with 5 votes each for "choosing/making a costume" and "watching spooky movies and shows." "Candy," "haunted houses," and "spooky stories and books" tied for third place with 3 votes each. And in last place came "Halloween parties" and "decorations," with just one vote apiece.
Thanks for voting in the poll, and please share any special memories about your favorite Halloween things when you were a kid - I'd love to hear about them!
