5 Questions to Scare the Bejeezus Out of You

by on October 24th, 2008

Fall is my favorite time of the year. There’s something inherently romantic about the trees turning colors, the weather cooling down, and every day being jeans and sweatshirt weather. Halloween is just a week away, and then comes the slide to Thanksgiving and Christmas (or whatever holiday celebrations are had during this time). I always look at Halloween as the last hurrah for the tolerable weather.

Also, I seem to have heard something about Citizen Wausau having a birthday in October. I also recall something about a meet-up at Malarkey’s on Oct. 30…that being said…

1.    I remember fondly my time trick-or-treating as a child. It started at 5 and went until 9 pm, and it was always on Halloween. My friends and I ran around our neighborhood until our bags were brimming with candy. So many things have changed since then and I’m wondering if you prefer doing trick-or-treat on the actual date of Halloween, or the day or weekend before? How long should trick-or-treating last?

2.    I’m kind of a coward, and as such, have never really been a haunted house kind of guy. What about you? If you are, what is the best one you’ve seen?

3.    On the other hand, I really dig horror and scary movies. I’ve seen every Friday the 13th, every Halloween, and every Saw movie. I think the best horror movie I’ve seen is the original Nightmare on Elm Street. The best thriller I’ve seen is Seven. What’s the best one you’ve ever seen?

4.    What is your stance on candy corn? What about the peanut butter toffee wrapped in the orange and black wrappers? I believe these are polarizing candies and were grounds for a serious toilet-papering in my neighborhood.

5.    I believe that neighborhood location can make or break trick-or-treating. How is the trick-or-treating in your neighborhood? Do you “bus” your kids to other neighborhoods to trick-or-treat because the treats are better? Describe your best “haul” trick or treating.
