Nestle Family Virtual Halloween Party: Trick or Treat Memories {$100 Walmart Gift Card Giveaway}

Trick or Treat, Smell my Feet, Give me Something Good to Eat! For me, Halloween was always all about the candy! When we got home from trick or treating around the neighborhood, Jennifer and I would sort our candy into piles. There was a chocolate pile, a sweet tart pile, the gum pile and the ever disappointing and dreaded raisin pile!

Now that I am taking my own kids door to door, we are starting to make some really great memories of our own. My oldest is only five, so she is just starting to understand the whole trick or treating tradition, but she is definitely a quick study and is actively teaching her little sister the ropes (two bags equals more candy, right?).  Last year, my daughters decided to be “poodle skirt girls” and twisted their way around the neighborhood in pink skirts, white tights and pretty hairbows!  Their matching costumes were just too darn cute and while my youngest was quite confused as to why people were giving her stuff, she had a blast. This year, the oldest decided to go with Hannah Montana and my youngest wants to be the “pink Little Mermaid.”  Uh. Um.  A pink Little Mermaid?  I am still at a loss on this one….all suggestions are welcome!

Because my kids are young, we are just starting to develop our holiday traditions and we are looking forward to many more years of collecting candy on Halloween….pink mermaids and all!

Thank you all for participating in the Nestle Family Virtual Halloween party!  I hope you had a great time and learned a few things, too!

    My favorite halloween memory is trick or treating in my neighborhood when I was growing up using a plastic pumpkin with a handle (late 60’s-early70’s) when it was safe and we would bring home tons of candy without any thought of being poisioned or otherwise

She wanted to be daddy, so she dressed in jeans, a flannel shirt, work boots , smeared grease on her face and carried a spray gun (Daddy does body work and paint) She was a mini me of her daddy that night, too cute.

  41. my fav memory is of my sons first halloween trick or treating.. he had no interest in the candy..just loved running up to peoples houses and sitting on their doorsteps.

  45. My favorite Halloween memory was my son’s first official trick or treat. I felt like a kid again going door to door with him and wondering what kind of treat we would get. He especially loved the houses that were all lit up with pretty Halloween lights. The occasional scare was a giggler to me because I remember how spooked I got as a child and yet those are the homes I remembered going to most. When my son and I got home we went thru his candy together and picked out his favorites and left the rest in a bag on the table for the Great Pumpkin, who would leave a present for the candy. (I came up with this idea so that we wouldnt have so much candy in the house.)

    My favorite Halloween memory is when we were kids, my parents had an Halloween party with my Aunts, Uncles & cousins. My Mom came from a huge family (16 kids) and she was the youngest. What a house full of people. We had so much fun. Everyone dressed up, even the adults. We played all sorts of games, decorated pumpkins and then as a group, we went trick or treating. Now, I look back and laugh, thinking what in the world did our neighbors think when we all came in a large group. Wish we could have a party for our kids like we did back then.

  67. My special memory… It’s so special in fact that if memories were worth dollars, this one would have at least seven figures attached to it. Honestly.

    It was Halloween of 2004. I remember the street we went trick or treating on. It was the same street as every year. They give out the best candy – full size candy bars at the majority of houses! Usually the children would beg to stay out later. Who ever wants it to end, you know?

    It surprised me this year, and truth be told hurt my heart a bit that my daughter asked to come home so soon in to it. We hadn’t even gotten up and down the entire street. But I knew she was tired. I knew she didn’t feel well. She looked so pretty…in her wheelchair that was all done up to look like a queen in her throne. The wheelchair was a new accessory that required some ingenuity in selecting a costume. She could walk earlier that month. But not now. She had cancer and it was spreading rapidly. Next month….she’d be gone.

    I remember so much about that time and all other Halloween memories will pale in comparison to that one, because every minute was so special.

    I sincerely hope I do not cause anyone discomfort with my sharing of this story. I had to be true to my memories.

  72. My favorite Halloween memory is 1989 – the year my son was born. He was 6 weeks old on Halloween and it had been a difficult pregnancy, but my little “pumpkin” was the best treat I could have gotten! He was adorable in his pumpkin costume (I still have it).

  73. Annette D says:

    I was in the marching band when I was in high school and one year Halloween fell on a Friday night, the same night of a home football game. We performed the National Anthem in uniform as usual. We then all sneaked back to the band hall to change into ghosts and goblins for the half-time show. It was great and the audience loved it! That was my most memorable Halloween ever!

  74. Deb Anderson says:

    When I was a kid, we lived in a very rural area in the South and there weren’t very many neighbors to go trick or treating. One year we visited some cousins in Chicago and went around their suburban neighborhood with them to trick or treat. We each came home with huge shopping bags full of candy. I’d never seen so much candy in my life! Made myself sick eating all I wanted to eat. 🙂

  75. My favorite halloween memory is going trick or treating with my friends when I was younger. I felt so grown up when my parents let us go by ourselves.

  76. I remember the day I opened my door to find a tiny little Jack (from Jack in the Box) on my doorstep…sooooo cute!

  77. Annette D says:
  78. Deb Anderson says:
  79. My father-in-law passed away the day before Halloween, so we were traveling on Halloween. When we returned from our trip a week later, one of the neighbors had arranged with everyone up and down the block for us to take our 4 year old son trick-or-treating a week late. He didn’t really know the difference, but it meant a lot to us!

  98. Okay, so this HAS to be my favorite and most embarrassing Halloween memory. My now 10 year old son was 4 years old. He was a very shy kid, and was always afraid to go knock on doors to trick or treat. This year, he was making an attempt at being a bit more outgoing. Well, he was doing a great job with his “Trick or treats” and “thank you’s” when we got to a house with a little girl dressed as a witch handing out candy. There was a large group of trick-or-treaters who witnessed this, btw… Instead of saying trick or treat to the little girl, he said to her “That’s a pretty costume. Did you know boys have a penis and girls have a vagina?” I was MORTIFIED!!!

  104. My favorite memory is the year I dresed up as a gypsy. The little kids who came to the door for their treats were a bit hesitant because they didn’t know it was me. The parents got a kick out of it. And every year after that, the kids looked forward to my new costume.

My children were so traumatized that was the last house we went to that night and forget about them ever watching the Wizard of OZ ever again. Still to this day when they see anything related to the Wizzard of Oz the talk about tht night (LOL)

  112. As a retired elementary school teacher my favorite memory is the annual Halloween Parade.

  113. My aunt didn’t have kids, so she had the time to have elaborate Halloween parties for us kids. She helped with costumes if needed and was detailed with the decorations. Her favorite was fake ice cubes for the “blood” punch with fake flies inside. We miss her a lot. (Not just for the Halloween parties)!

  114. I remember the first year I gave out candy – it was incredibly fun and rewarding, which I wasn’t expecting!

  115. Alicia Webser says:

    I was a hobo in the 4th grade. My mom made my clothes from my step-dad’s old work clothes, and she used an old rope for a belt. I also had a stick with a bandana tied on the end, and painted on whiskers. I was awesome!

  116. My favorite Halloween memory is when I went to a hunted house for the first time and being really scared and having a good time.

    my favorite halloween memory would have to be of my daughter who is now grown but at age 8yrs she wanted to be puff the magic dragon so being a seamstress i made her costume and for her dragon feet wek taped green poster board cut out like long clawed feet and taped it to her tennis shoes to hide them, and she said her feet were sweaty so i added baby powder to her shoes thinking it would cool her feet and keep them comfortable and it did but each time she would step a big puff of powder would shoot from her shoes toe end and it was so funny and we thought it matched her costume perfectly, thing is tho her shoes puffed at school for a whole week until the powder got out, so funny at the time

  172. My favorite memory for Halloween is growning up on a farm in Kentucky, we raised lots of field corn for the livestock, so we would go into the field and gather corn, sit down and shell it all. Then we would go down by the road and find a real good place to hide and (throw corn at cars)corn some cars. LOL! I loved doing that!!! Fun Fun Fun!!!

    My favorite Halloween memory: When I was about 12 years old, a boy who lived around the corner from me helped me make a scarecrow out of clothes and stuffed with newspapers and we hung it from the roof. When the boys’ father came home and saw it, he was mad as all get out, but it was funny to us.

  188. My favorite Halloween memory is of our firstborn’s very 1st Halloween. We dressed him as Mickey Mouse and he was stinkin’ cute!

    My fav. Halloween memory was having my neices and nephews over for halloween and sitting around the table with candlelight telling ghost stories, we had it pre-planned for our friend to show up dressed as the man we were describing in the story and scare them by barging in our house. It was so funny.

    My favorite Halloween memory was taking my daughter trick or treating
    when she was small

  202. my favorite memory was when I was living on my own in the city as a young adult. I was boarding in an older lady’s house,and she wanted to give out treats to children but she couldn’t get around very well. So I helped her prepare the treats and then we sat and visited, and every time someone came to the door I’d get up and hand them out candy.
    It was a great way to spend halloween and I enjoyed the time with her too!

    My favorite Halloween memory is of my two grandsons going trick or treating for the first time. Their wide eyes when they seen all of the other trick or treaters and going to the door not knowing what to do other then hold their bags out without saying a word. They were so innocent then and now they are old pros at it and I still love watching them go trick or treating.

  228. My favorite halloween memory is when I was 10 and my Mom made me a lion costume and I went trick or treating with my Mom and her BFF and her son who was my BFF. He was a dalmation puppy. We then came home, each dumped our candy out on the floor and began trading candies that we didn’t like with each other. It was lots of fun and in the times when it was safe to eat what the neighbors gave you.

  231. I loved Trick-or-treating when I was a kid. I would go around my neighborhood with my neighbors and some of my siblings, then I would head over to another friends neighborhood and would finish off the night. We would have so much fun and get loads of candy that we would sort out and trade with each other.

  232. My favorite Halloween memory is getting ready and trick or treating with my brother, best friend, and her brother. We had years of Halloween fun. 🙂

  260. My favorite Halloween memory was going up to the campground when we (all my cousins/sisters and I) were all kids. They had a Halloween parade and costume contest each year, along with trick-or-treating, horse back riding and tons of other fun stuff…it was the BEST time! We’d all sit around all weekend after all the activities were over and roast marshmallows around the fire pit, too. Now that we’re all in our 20’s/30’s with our own kids, I look forward to bringing those memories back and passing them on to our little ones. 🙂 Halloween is one of my favorite holidays, for sure. 🙂

  266. My mother was the creative sort and she choose my halloween costumes according to what she wanted to make! Every year our church had a Halloween Party and most of the time I won. One I can remember was being an organ grinders monkey and playing a jack in the box. I was never cute and clever with my children but my sons are probably glad I wasn’t!

  267. My family and I lived in the Bronx NY while I was little. We didn’t have much money nor were we allowed to Trick-Or-Treat. My Mother and my Grandmother made costumes for my sister and I to wear to the community Halloween party. Every year they would make us a new Halloween costume. My sister and I never felt like we were missing out on anything. My Mother and Grandmother ensured we had a safe and fun holiday every year while we lived in the Bronx. This is my favorite memory because it shows that you don’t need money all you need is a little creativity and a glue gun!

  280. My favorite Halloween memory was the year my daughter (about 4 at the time) got a lion costume! Complete with mane (on a hood – nice for cold evening) and tail! I painted her face and she went around roaring at everyone!

  281. My favorite Halloween memories are the first time each of my kids went trick-or-treating. They would get all excited and then when it was time to go to a door they would seem confused…but once they got that candy put in their bag…WOW! They were excited and ready to go to the next house. So fun!

He was a Winnie the Pooh and was so cute in his costume. He knew he wanted candy, but wasn’t quite sure how to go about it, besides opening his bag. He did say thank you though!

  313. I’ve been around for a lot of Halloweens so I have quite a few memories. One of my favorites was when I was a room mother for my youngest and had three kids in that grade school. I decided to be a beat-up karate person, so I dressed in oldest son’s gi and put some dark “bruises” on my face and blackened one eye. I thought it was funny, but although it didn’t scare any of the kids, they were asking all my children how I got all beat up. I guess it was a little too realistic.

  314. My favorite Halloween memory is a time I was a very little girl and wanted to be a clown soooo badly! I remember my dad taking me to a drug store to try on silly clown wigs. Every time I think of Halloween I get a warm feeling remembering how hard he tried to make me laugh! 🙂

  320. My favorite Halloween memory is when I was 27 and my father & I tricked my grandma. I dressed up in a wig, men’s hat, long overcoat and scarf and my dad
    drove me to my grandma’s house (my dad loved playing tricks on my granny!). I rang the doorbell and she handed out the candy, saying, “I don’t think I know you. Where do you live?” “Who’s kid are you?” etc.etc. I started laughing and she recognized me then. Silly, but a memory I hold dear now that my dad & grandma have passed away.

  345. Boy will this show my age!!! I went out, unchaperoned. One of the things I liked was that you got to go into everyone’s house. About 1/2 the people made stuff for you to eat there (or they’d wrap it up for you). The other half had store bought candy. Not all wraped. I remember at one house you bobbed for apples and then if you got one, you got to pick what you wanted. I got one and picked the caramel apple. Halloween was so much fun back then and no worries. If I got tired and was too far from the house, or had gotten lost, someone took me home. Makes me feel warm and fuzzy.

    My memory of my childhood was going from house to house and playing the game of scavenger hunt……and using masks…..how crazy we were!!!! But, it was fun!!!

  374. My Mom decided to try to egg the eggers. She missed, then got covered.

  375. My favorite Halloween was when my friends and I visited a haunted house for the first time. I will never forget being so excited and scared. We go almost every year now; I think we’re obsessed!

    My favorite Halloween memory is the the year my daughter dressed as Nala from Lion King. She was so precious! She got to walk in her pre K parade and then took pictures with each neighbor as she trick or treated that night.

    Thanks for reminding me, she’s 12 now and still quite precious to me but those memories of her being so little are nice to conjure up still.

  411. My favorite Halloween memory is when my husband was away for 22 month (military), came home the end of September – this was last year – and our 4 year old son dressed in his Army gear complete with boots, patch, hat, etc…and matched daddy for Halloween. They were both so happy to be together!!

    I’ll be on unpaid maternity leave in two weeks, so here’s crossing my fingers… $100 would definitely come in handy!! 🙂

    One year we dressed my daughter as a bag of Jelly Beans because she wouldn’t decide on a costume that was within our budget. She was mad the whole time, funny part was everyone thought it was part of the costume and she was a bag of sour beans or sour gumballs. They gave her extra candy.

  417. virgomomwriter says:

    I went to my first boy-girl party on Halloween when I was in eighth grade. It was very wholesome and romantic…full moon, bobbing for apples (I won) and handholding. Brad, wherever you are, I hope you remember as fondly!

    I gave my 10 yr. old son a Halloween party. We live next door to my mom, dad, and sister (who still lived with my mom). I told my son and his group of around 10 boys they could roll my mom’s yard. When they were sneaking next door to roll the yard my sister jumped out from behind a tree wearing a Jason mask. You would not believe how fast 10 boys can run and how loud they can scream! It was hilarious!!

    I was an army brat. Every Hallotween there would be a “parade” of the kids who lived on the base; our parade was the 30+ kids walking together around the housing portion of the base together. Those were the days of the plastic masks with tiny slits for your eyes and mouth and a flammable, non-descript fabric. Those were thrilling days for me at that age. I felt like I was floating on air when I walked in the parade. My favorite outfits were Cinderalla (all pink and silver) and Roadrunner (a vibrantt purple outfit).

    my favorite Halloween memory is when my husband and I had a Halloween party for my daughters and their friends… they were 8 and 11. We had an acre yard and we started with a spooky story about the house that burned down a block away (this really happened a few weeks before the party). We then sent the kids on a hunt through the trees and graveyard we set up and they had to find clues and go all the way down to the burned house and down the alley behind our house (where parents dressed as monsters jumped out at them) and back to our house. We even had a parent submerge himself in our jacuzzi and jump out when the kids came by. They got a good scare and that party will go down in history!!

    Kinda weird but I remember when I was about 8 and we were trick or treating with my Aunt who is a year younger than me, because of her parents age she didn’t get out much. She was so excited that the first house we went to had no railing around the porch, and she hopped up the steps to the door and right off the other side. She didn’t get hurt, she was wearing a costume with a hoop skirt, but we had something to giggle about that year, and every year since.

    Mom dressed me as a bag of trash as last minute costume idea. The banana peel she stuck to my head stunk to high-heaven by the end of the day and made me so nauseous I couldn’t go trick-or-treating that night. I did win the school costume contest though! (so not worth it so don’t do it to your kids!)
