I really dislike the holiday. My family didn't really acknowledge it at all when I was younger. Probably the most memorable experience was when I was very young and I opened door to be greeted by children dressed in costumes. All I said was 'haha...you're funny' and slammed the door in their faces.

The only time I went trick or treating with my friends, this random man threatened to set his dog on us if we went anywhere near his house, even though we were only 8 years old.

Role on to the happier responses please!

As a child, I have a lot of good memories. My aunt's neighborhood would always have a huge block party, so we would go down there. I would go trick-or-treating with my dad or uncle, and hang out with friends, trade candy, stuff like that. I always had a costume; my mom would make one for me.

As I got older, I felt that I was too old to "do Halloween". I didn't really have an older costume per se. I didn't have anything that didn't make me look 12. So I used to snack on some candy that we bought, but it soon turned into not participating.

I do have a particularly momentous Mischief Night memory (the night before Halloween) but that's not a story for here.

As a child of the 80's, an easy Halloween costume a parent could get for their child was simply a plastic-paper type mask of a popular character that came with a plastic coverall suit to match the mask.  One of the earliest memories I have of going Trick or Treating or dressing up for Halloween was when I got one of these costumes when I was 6 years old.  I was the Road Runner from the old Looney Tunes cartoons.  I remember the plastic coveralls split and my mom and grandmom tried to tape the rip because I was so upset that the costume was "ruined"   I also remember being really hot.  It was hard to see through the mask's two eye holes and even harder to breathe as there were only two tiny slits around where your nose was situated.  And of course the plastic coveralls, which you wore over your street clothes, did not breathe at all.  I do remember a had an orange pumpkin container for all my candy.  I cherished that thing and kept it in my room until I was a teenager

To be honest, I never really celebrated Halloween that often. The only times that I did was at school. I remember wearing this mask (I think it was a Scream one) where if I pushed this pump thing, red paint (Representing as blood) would start to run down the mask which was quite awesome.

Another Halloween holiday, I wore this clothing which had an imprint of a skeleton on. I think it also came with gloves too.

Apart from that though, I can't really think of anything else.

As much as I'd love to share a special memorable Halloween experience, I actually don't celebrate it. It's not celebrated over here compared to overseas, so I've never really experienced Halloween.

I don't know if spending it on AC and collecting the special furniture series counts, but that's really all I have that could be considered memorable.

I used to celebrate Halloween, but once I got older it became old ... and sort of weird. It's hard to remember what I was, but a few memorable ones are the ghosts from Pacman, Link, ketchup ... and a ghost (so frightening I know ) Now I just go to my friends house and give out candy.

I try to play AC on halloween but for some reason I always find myself busy doing other things.

I'm very grumpy and not really a holiday person, but when I was a kid my mum used to take me trick or treating dressed as a witch, no expensive costumes needed she just cut out arm and head holes in a black bin liner and cut the bottom jagged like a witch dress and a bit of face paint and it looked really good

Now I like to see my nephews dress up but I always think my black bin liner is better than anything you can buy today

Halloween is actually one of my favorite holidays, if not my favorite holiday. I've had many memorable Halloween experiences. I won't share them all, because this would get pretty lengthy, so here's just two memories that really stick out.

The first I'll share was the Halloween when I was eleven years old. I had a couple of friends come over and we went trick-or-treating along with some more friends of mine that met up with us in the neighborhood. We probably had a gang of about five or six going around that night. The goal every year was to get as much candy as possible, and we definitely got a lot that year. What made that Halloween particularly memorable was that my parents took us all to a haunted hayride after the trick-or-treating ended. Afterwards, a couple of my friends spent the night, and we stayed up pretty late feasting on our candy and playing video games. It's one of the best Halloweens that I can recall.

Another memory that sticks out is not so great, unfortunately. I can't recall exactly how old I was. I was either twelve or thirteen years old, and this year I was trick-or-treating with one of my best friends around our neighborhood. As mentioned before, no matter who I would go trick-or-treating with, the goal has always been to cover the most ground as possible, and get as much candy as possible. We were making really good progress, covering a lot of ground this Halloween in particular, and managed to make it across to the other side of our neighborhood (a first for us). I remember one house in particular had this whole scene set up, where you'd go get your candy at the door, and then some guys would come and chase you away with chainsaws, all while dry ice smoke was filling the air. Scary but fun, in theory. Somehow, in all of this commotion, my friend and I got separated. Even worse, as I continued up the street en route to the next house trying to find my friend. I get side-swiped by two hooligans that snatched my pillowcase full of candy right out of my hands. A chase of foot quickly ensued, as I wasn't going to let crooks get away with my hard earned loot. I don't think they were expecting me to retaliate, as I caught up with them, and grabbed a hold of the bag that they stole. It was then like a game of tug-o'-war. I wouldn't let go, and the other guy wouldn't let go. The problem was there were two of them. The second guy comes out of nowhere and pushes me to the ground. Still trying to pry my bag of candy away from the first guy, I try to get back up, but the second guy starts kicking and stomping on me while I'm laying on the ground. After taking quite a beating, I eventually had lost my grip on the bag, and the two of them ran away. I was battered... I was bruised... I had lost the fight... I had lost a night's worth of candy... Oh, and I still had a lost friend too... After laying on the ground thinking to myself, "did that really just happen?", I finally mustered the strength to stand up and find my friend. I eventually found him a little ways up the street, explained to him what happened, and we headed home for the night. There is a happy ending to this story though. My friend and I ended up going back to my house, and a couple of our other friends ended up meeting up with us too. Each of them ended up sharing some of their loot with me, so I ended up making out with some candy anyways. Those baddies might have gotten away, but I really had some awesome friends by my side there at the end.

Sorry, didn't mean to write a story book. Guess this ended up being a long response after all.

My most memorable Halloween would have to be when two dear friends of mine got married. They both love Halloween and have a large party every year where they decorate their entire house. The wedding was held in a large hall and the bride wore black and looked like Elvira. The groom was Dracula and all of us guests were in costumes. They have some really different wedding pictures, as you can imagine!

I've never done anything at all regarding Halloween. Having lived in Belgium for most of my life, I don't have any experiences to share at the moment Halloween isn't celebrated in Belgium at all. You may find the odd house here and there with some decorations, but there is no such thing as Trick Or Treat.

However, now that I live in the United Kingdom, I'm hoping to have a very first Halloween experience of some sorts. I heard that there will be quite a few children knocking on doors in this area so I would like to buy some sweets and hand them out (although my wife would prefer to switch off all the lights in the house, lock the door and play New Leaf, while ignoring the knocks on the front door).
