Halloween weekend is here!!!

I'm 26-years-old and yes I will be trick-or-treating this year! You can call me Mrs. Officer, as I'll be rocking it out in my cop outfit. I'm such a big kid.

Is there an age limit for trick-or-treating? I think not.

I feel as if Halloween has changed since the 90's when I was a kid.

What is up with these town curfews nowadays?

I feel like I shouldn't even start off explaining something by saying, "back in my day" because I'm not even that old. But back in my day, I used to wait until it was dark to trick-or-treat, nowadays people might run out of candy if you wait until it's dark. These kids now come like right after school. The earliest trick-or-treater I had was at 3 p.m. one year and I'm like seriously! Hey kids, give adults time to get home from work, wait till 4ish or 5ish so more people answer the door. 

Also, say "trick-or-treat!" Don't just go to a door with your bag out. You won't get any candy from people in my house if you don't speak. If you didn't buy a costume at least wear a mask  or make a costume. You teenagers with poor suggestions of costumes begging for candy, don't just show up and claim you're dressed up as a high school student in jeans and a t-shirt, noooo buddy... no costume, no candy!

Oh, one more minor Halloween rant...when I see a house with a bunch of Halloween decorations I feel like I hit the jack pot. But sometimes the most dressed up houses have the corniest Halloween candies. C'mon man! If you have a ka-billion lights and decorations in your yard, don't disappoint, have the good candy!

I don't have a specific type of candy I like, but you can't go wrong with chocolate and I like when people buy the mini bags and fill them up with different pieces of candy, I feel like I hit bank. And no loose candy pieces like Skittles, Candy Corn, etc. Thanks.

Halloween Things To Do:

I've been to Fright Fest one year and in my personal opinion Six Flags is for the summer time only to enjoy roller coasters when the weather is warm. Going in October, with wind hitting you in the face while high in the sky on a ride...not a good time. And, the scary people walking around actually didn't scare me.

  • Sit at home and enjoy old school horror movies all night:
Oh yeaaa, can't go wrong with movies. And Paranormal Activity has nothing on these old school horror flicks! I'm talking about the Jason's, Halloween's, Child's Play, Nightmare on Elm Street, Candy Man, etc. I also like The Grudge, The Texas Chainsaw Massacre, Saw and that clown from It scares the crap outta me. 

Who is your favorite horror villain?

The AMC channel plays all the horror movies (A-Z Movie Schedule). I watched Scream 3 and House of Wax the other day.

  • Party, party, party let's all get wasted! Or maybe not:
Throw a Halloween bash! Set rules too. Noone gets in without a costume, have some Halloween spirit and set up Halloween games, food and drinks. Create some spooky shots and set up a drinking game (see HERE).

Or if you're staying home with kids play some fun spooky games with them (see HERE). Those ouija boards scare me, I don't mess with or call on the spirits.

  • Make it a Halloween Club Night!
Ok, so maybe throwing a Halloween bash is too much work. So go out to the club. You don't have to wear a full blown costume, but at least add on some over the top makeup, or add Halloween accessories, or wear a crazy wig...something different. May I suggest hitting up Atlantic City? You can never go wrong with AC.

  • Hit up a Halloween event: a spooky road trip, hayrides, a prison, etc:
- A couple years ago I went to Eastern State Penitentiary in Pennsylvania for a Halloween tour of the historic prison. Their "Terror Behind the Walls" Haunted House is open now until Nov. 12th.

- Are you near Passaic County? If not then road trip it to one of the scariest roads...Clinton Road in West Milford, New Jersey to be exact. 

This road "gained notoriety over the years as an area rife with many legends of paranormal occurrences such as sightings of ghosts, strange creatures and gatherings of witches, Satanists and more. It is also rumored that professional killers dispose of bodies in the surrounding woods."
