Trick or Treat?

This Halloween, I'm going out as a geek.  At least, that's what my sister always tells me, and that's what many of you will think when you see the end of Friday's show.  (But if there's any time when it's acceptable to act like a geek, it's Halloween...)

Tell us what you plan to do on Friday.  And whether it's watching movies or scaring up some fun in your neighborhood, be safe and have a great time.  And do a little trick-or-treating for me, because after you've grown tall and graduated, people will answer their doors with a lot less candy than funny looks.

    Since I'm to old to trick or treat, this year I will be working with the tricking part. I will be scarying children and adults at my friends house. Every year we have a haunted house and it's so much to see the parents of the children so scared. But, I also help little children go through so that they get their candy.
    Happy Halloween!

    If you got more candies than you can it, you can put it in a bowl and put it in your local post office or somewhere else. And you can also put a card that say, 'One candy each time!'

    Have a great HalloweeEEeen!!!

    I think Halloween is a great time for people to express their creative ideas. I went as pepper and my friend went as salt; it was fun.

    I had to work again this evening at the supermarket (cashier). It was fun though, watching many amounts of small kids gathering around my cash desk screaming "Süßes oder Saures!!" (="Trick or Treat" in German) to me several times the whole shift.

    Happy Halloween to all of you folks out there!!

    This year I was a hobo for Halloween. My sister took me to Trunk or Treat at my friend, Kelly's, church. All three of us then went to a haunted trail. Kelly kept grabbing my arm very tightly until my circulation was almost cut off.

    This Halloween I went out with my friend we were the Blues Brothers.
    Every house we went to gave us a different name. At some houses we were Michael Jackson, some we were the Blues Brothers, or the Girls in Black, or just rockstars!! Either way we had a great time!

    For Halloween, I went trick-or-treating around my town with my friends. We had a great time. On Saturday, some friends are going to my cousins birthday party for her Halloween birthday celebration! We are going to watch scary movies! That will be fun! I wish that I could throw a Halloween Party though! That would have been a blast too!

    This year, as my mother handed out candy. I dressed up as a pumpkin – in a costume my mom used when she was pregnant [ I put a pillow in my shirt. ] Then met up with one of my best friends Sammy – who's younger sister's were tricker treating with her parents. We walked around town for a good 45 minutes, looking silly of course
    because everyone was probably wondering why two fifteen year old girls were out tricker treating. But, we only got one piece of candy each – from a friend. After we walked – we came back to my house, got dressed in black, got two Scream Masks and I got in my tree and Sam got in a big pile of leaves and we made an "attempt" at scaring young children. We only scared one mother. =]

    Candy hunting was grate a cople of years ago, but now with the gas prices going up that makes the food prices go up witch means candy goes up and that means less and less people giving out candy. It `s fun to dress up my friends, but it`s not Halloween with out a bag full of candy.At the end of the night.

    This year I did not go trick or treating I just stayed home and watched Ghost whisper. I really had a fine time at home and plus all that candy is not that good for you. I really think that I am to old for trick or treating. Trick or treating is fun when you are a little kid but it gets boring.

    I had to work on Halloween. It was horrible. The restaurant was very dead and my manager wouldn't even let us dress up. This was my worst Halloween so far, I hope next year will be better. And for all of the people who think they're too old to grow up, get over yourself! This is the only night in which you can dress up as anything you want and no one can call you names. And if they do, just make fun of them back.
