“With Halloween season in full swing, what is your favorite horror tradition to do in the month?”

As a father my favorite tradition now is to give out candy to the kids with the help of my children. Then go out with them and go trick or treating. My son is two this year and I can’t wait to see and photograph his expressions. Although when we get home it will be a fight between the kids over the left over candy…

Halloween is my favorite holiday, and I don’t care what anyone says, you are never too old to go Trick or Treating. Isn’t that why we all have kids, so we can go Trick or Treating? No, but seriously, the best part about Halloween is the costumes. I dress up every year and wish everybody else would, too. I love driving around on Halloween day and seeing people on their way to work dressed up as ghouls and goblins fixing their warts in the rear view mirror. It’s hilarious. Last year, I saw two plumbers in their company van dressed up as Mario and Luigi.

I do not have a favorite horror tradition of my own. However I love to see what my neighbor Corey comes up with each year. Corey usually has one of his teenage boys disguised as a dummy to scare trick-or-treaters. One year he made a mock car crash in his yard with a dummy or two looking dead as part of the scene.
