What’s your favorite Halloween tradition/custom?

Question by Mr. Blacks: What’s your favorite Halloween tradition/custom?
Also are there certain kinds of treats you like to prepare? I’m trying to think of some good ideas, besides just plain old Halloween cookies.

take cookie dough and wrap in around a reeses mini, or a gob of peanut butter. bake to package directions. I make bbq for h-day dinner.
rock candy is peferct if its green, hand it out dressed as these—

tin man, need silver spray paint, cardboard ( coke cartons are ok), funnel (dollar store), grey face paint. put on grey sweats, cut and spray paint cardboard cuttings, make arm bands, thigh covers, etc. The film version was made of 40 pounds of aluminum.

scarecrow- blue work shirt jeans, cowboot boots, gloves, rope. fold the shirt over each side like a bathrobe. secure with a rope belt. fold the jean legs up to mid calf, and lay over boot tops. In the books scarecrow wore only blue. buy a wire brim witch hat (dollar store), fold in the top of the cone, and fold up the brim. put a bit of brown on the nose, and shredded newspaper for straw. You will require a brain. Study ray bolger’s work, and movements.
…. and when the parties over, scarecrow.. (sob) i’ll miss you most of all.

    My favorite tradition is dressing up and seeing all the different costumes people are wearing. If I’m with my family, I like to take my youngest nephew out trick or treating. If I’m with friends, it’s fun to go out and have some drinks. But soon drinks get boring and then we like to go home to smoke some pot while we watch a scary movie and eat Halloween goodies.

    I like to make cob web cupcakes and cookies, using orange and black/brown colored icing. Also a tradition in my family is making donuts; we usually dip them in sugar/cinnamon, but you could also ice them with Halloween colors.

    My daughter’s birthday is 3 days before halloween so one year i made her this jack o’ lantern cupcake-cake. It was so easy and turned out great. Bake some cupcakes, about 20-24, after they cool arrange them in a pumpkin shape, using two for a stem on top. Frost them with vanilla frosting dyed orange. DO NOT frost them individually. Frost them together like you would a cake. frost the stem in brown or green. Then use brown M&M’s or Reeses Pieces to create a jack O’ lantern face.
    It’s really cute and so much easier than a actual cake since you dont have to cut it or use plates or forks. Great for a party. Hope this helps. Have fun!

    Oh yeah, and my favorite tradition is making a scarecrow with a freaky mask and putting it on my front step with a bowl of candy in its lap. Then standing back and watching the trick or treaters try to figure out if it’s a real person that’s going to jump at them. lol sooo much fun!
