About Me On Monday (Halloween Edition)

It’s time to begin a new week by joining Heather for the Halloween Edition of her Monday meme.  Here are the questions:

1. Do you consider Halloween a holiday for children or adults?
Many years ago, when I was a child, Halloween was mainly for children. These days, there seems to be a lot of parties and activities involving adults, so I guess it can be for both.

2. At what age should children stop trick or treating?
I think around age eleven is a good stopping point. In my opinion, there’s no need for teenagers to be out trick-or-treating, unless they are the ones taking their younger siblings.

3. What are your plans for Halloween?

In the past, Ed and I have hosted a couple of parties (for family), but this year we’re just looking forward to having the grandchildren stop by to pick up their Halloween goody bags on trick-or-treat night–which happens to be Tuesday night here.  Our town only allows trick-or-treating on Tuesday or Thursday evenings.

4. What frightens you?

Small, dark, confined spaces, heights, things that go “bump” in the night, loaded guns, snakes…just to name a few things.

My question for you:

What has been your most memorable Halloween experience?

For me, it was  the two family Halloween Parties that we’ve hosted.  It was so much fun to see what everyone dressed up as–and the party foods got pretty creative, too.!)

About the weekend:

The weekend was busy around our house, but, fortunately, all of our activities took place at home!  We attended our granddaughter’s birthday party( next-door) and Ed continued working on his latest construction project, which I’ll write about at a later date.

Fortunately, there was no “manhunt” this weekend.  Things seemed almost boring compared to last weekend!  The authorities still haven’t caught that guy–and there’s even a reward for information leading to his arrest!   I hope he’s long gone.

As the new week begins, I’m sending up prayers for those in the path of “Frankenstorm”, as well as the final week of presidential campaigning.

Happy Monday!

  1. Thanks for checking on me…pretty much everything is closed here and hubs is working from home for now. The storm is just now getting started in our area…wind and rain, which will get worse. We still have power at the moment so I’m taking advantage of that! My daughter’s office in DC is also closed so she’ll stay put too.

  2. That storm sounds scary.

  3. My most memorable was my first Halloween in Toledo when the cats freaked out and ran over each other cartoon-style fleeing from a giant ladybug of about 5 years old who upon seeing them in the door ran to the porch gleefully yelling “kitties!” The cats were too funny, the little ladybug was too cute!

  4. I think the freakiest party I attended was at my good friend’s house. Everyone had a good time however the furniture ended up on the street because someone wanted a bigger dance floor. We are watching the Frankenstorm as well.

  5. love that picture!!!!
    Interesting that your town only allows trick or treating on tuesdays or thursdays… why is that?

  6. A great set of answers. Thanks for participating in the MQAM, hope to see you again next week.

  7. I enjoy the children coming to the door but otherwise I can do without Halloween. My daughter and SIL went to a party Saturday, they looked great and had fun. I think after 8th grade they should stop but we still get a lot of HS kids coming to the door. I use to enjoy taking my children out when they were little, when I could actually eat their candy and not put on weight 🙂

  8. We don’t celebrate Halloween, but I remember an assistant language teacher from Canada making a jack o’ lantern for the students.

  9. Can’t wait to see Ed’s construction project. 😉
