Growing up as a kid, Halloween was always a favorite time of year for me, from all of the cool decorations we used to put up, to the room mothers at school putting on the parties for us year after year while we were growing up. at home we would get down all the cardboard Halloween cut-outs that we would have to pry apart from sticking together over the years sometimes it was with unsuccessful outcome, other times we would pull the cut outs apart and strategically place them all over the big picture window in the living room. once we would get them all put up, we would grab our parents and all go out to the yard to look at how the window looked all decorated up.
we really didn't decorate too much other than the traditional cardboard cutouts and a couple of plug in light up pumpkins, on Halloween night we would ( or I should say my dad would) "haunt" the living room and porch for when they would be giving out candy. we would also put the speaker up in the window and would play Disney's "Chilling thrilling sounds of the Haunted House" and blast it out the windows to get people to stop at our house. we always had a carved pumpkin or two, and we would always bring home so much candy since our trick or treat route would cover such a large area, thank goodness our subdivision was so big!
