Halloween Stories

Journal Entry: Wed Oct 31, 2012, 9:46 PM





Hi there boys and girls and Justin Bieber, happy Halloween! Hope you peeps has been out collecting candies in your pretty little costumes, I didn't, I've been busy with work mostly. But back in the day I did used to dress up and go around Trick or Treating. I was always dressed up as a vampire too, a proper dracula vampire not those Edward Cullen Twilight shit you see now days (I mean by default, without the makeup I do look like Edward Cullen anyway). It was one of my favorite day of the year, but one particular year stood out amongs the rest... read on if you dare.



Thats a picture of me when I was little dressing up as a vampire. Right, so what happened during Trick or Treating? I must've been like 9 years old and I used to live in this village kinda thing, well not really a village... I don't want you to think I am a Hobbit, but like a closely knitted area full of houses. So I pretty much knew all the other kids in the neighbourhood, there was like at least fifteen of us and we would dress up as our favourite spooky character and go around knocking on doors asking for candies. It was pretty cute we even had a little chant that went "WHAT DO WE WANT? CANDY! WHEN DO WE WANT IT? NOW!". Many friendly neighbours would then give us candies, while some of them would pretend not to be home.. but sometimes with the television still turned on? We didn't do any tricking however because we were nice little kids.

Everything was well until we came across this one house, we rang the doorbell and a man answered the door. He forgot that it was Halloween so he didn't prepare any candies for us, so he went back into the house and took out a big bag full of loose change, holy crap there were some 10 cents, 20 cents, 50 cents and hell even a few golden dollars in there, I mean those kind of money were big for us kids back in the day! The guy then threw the bag in the air...... and it was raining coins. It was a very surreal moment, I looked over at my friend's face and I could see those dollar signs $$ in their eyes, I think some of them was even drooling (But then again I think the kid had a medical condition). But man did things got real.. suddenly everything turned slow motion, everyone was shoving each other out of the way, pulling on each other's hair, they were swearing, they were kicking and punching, I think at one point a kid pulled out a 9mm and my friend got shot. BLOODY COIN FRENZY! I got my hands on a few dollars myself and I could feel that evil smirk of my face.. we all got greedy after that house. Our chant was changed to "WHAT DO WE WANT? MONEY! WHEN DO WE WANT IT? RIGHT F*KING NOW!". And we were like 'What you think this is Trick or Treat man? HELL NO! This is protection fee so pay up bitch!!' It was crazy, I didn't expect a few dollars could suddenly turn us all into Scrooge Mcduck. Thinking back at it now, I think the guy really shouldn't have involved money into a kid's game.... I know it wasn't much money, but it was enough to turn something innocent into something sinister in a matter of seconds.

Then years later I had to put my Halloween adventures to a rest, my mum was like 'Ry I think you have to stop Trick or Treating now, Halloween is actually a very evil holiday because it celebrates Satan, its not a very Christian thing to do.', I was annoyed but I listened anyway... but then again I was already 25 so I think it made sense to stop. So thats my Halloween story for 2012, I'll save my other one for next year. Do you have a Halloween story to tell? Please write a comment below.

Speaking of something evil, my number one fan Hitler made another rant video, this time about Disney buying Star Wars, check it out if you like www.youtube.com/watch?v=GHZkcc… I put a lot of hard work into this.

halloween doesnt celebrate Satan >:| i am wiccan, and for us, Hallow's Eve represents the narrowing of the barrier between our world and the world of teh dead. most of us wiccans rlly get into it and light a huge bonfire in the woods and dance naked when the moon is at its highest peak! but, then again, most wiccans dont live with their very strict christian grandparents in the middle of the state capitol >.< either way, for us halloween is rlly fun, and i think its hilarious when people say wiccans are witches ^^ cuz u know what? thats what we are!

Halloween isn't very known of for the old folk with British background Australia so living on a street that consists mainly of old people i only scored a pack of nice biscuits and a $2 coin. this year more kids and uni kids have moved to our street so i got a fairly good spread, my neighbors asked if i was to old for trick or treating i said never

We don't celebrate Halloween and the only ones dressing up are 2 to 5 year olds at the mall and people with good social life that make small reunions for kicks (I'm not one of those). It sucks because I like candy and ridiculous costumes.

But I did get a good laugh out of this. :XD:

The money thing is funny cuz over here there is a trick-or-treat chant for Halloween that says "Halloween Trick or Treat, dame chavos no mani!!" which means "give me money, not candy!!" XD

But yeah, not many people celebrate it saying its evil and :blahblah: here though there are people who dress up and stuff even adults! I went to a party dressed as a Grim Reaper Fox. XD

Your story make me laugh quite a bit. In my country (Puerto Rico) they celebrate Halloween and the gay community is not an exception (fabulous!) but I am not a gay pack kind of guy so I can go anywhere and still have fun. I visit some "heterosexual" places and finish in a "gay club" named Circo (circus) where I dance with a guy dress like a girl, yes, it was fun until she (or he) keep trying to dance with me like I was hetero or into trasvesty or trasgender. Anyway, apart for that I also have fun (earlier in October 30) dressing as pikachu (gay/dark version, visit my page if you dare) and in October 31 in an art class, in which a girl dress like Frida Khalo and I was the reaper... this Halloween was quite fun and even with 30 (I know I look younger) I enjoy a good satanic celebration (sarcastic). I did not celebrate Halloween for like 5 years so this year was so good that I decided to celebrate in a very non-religious way. I did not kiss a boy so I was a not traditional gay guy... have fun people!

It was a festival back in our ancestors time when Jack was chased by the devil for his soul. Used pumpkin lanterns to ward the demons off. It's a day where Hell walks the earth apparently (bunch of bs, but different religions argue all the same.)
Dressed up as Tony Stark. I know science.

But this little bloody affair seems right. Coins for blood. Like Blood diamonds.

Ah, Halloween. The day of drinking your brain away and hoping your car is still fine when you return home.

I'm afraid I don't have any stories to share though. :(

I don't personally have a Halloween story, but my father did!

When he was young, my grandmother would make him sit on the porch to hand out candy to all the little ghouls. Now my father wasn't always the most trustworthy child (pooping in his mother's shoes, setting his brothers' alarm clocks to 3 am), however, he was the oldest so he had to be out there.
Although, while no one was around, he would eat all the candy and stuff the wrappers with leaves and rocks! So every time a kid came up and said "Trick or Treat?" He would give them a nicely wrapped leaf that looked like any normal candy. He always said that they were asking for it, after all they made the offer of trick or treat, so he tricked them!

omg lol thats so mean.. but so funny. i guess its lucky those kids dont open the candy right there in front of the house, otherwise the rock may be thrown at the window TvT"

Back, when my family was living in NZ, my siblings put a manequin head inside a plastic bag inside another plastic bag that had a hole filled with red food coloured water, so it looked like a disembodied head dripping blood, on our doorknob. You can imagine the looks on all the kids' faces! Inside we waited by the front door and windows to see how well it would turn out.

There was this little girl who was in the Halloween spirit and ran up to our door and almost knocked, until she noticed the bleeding head. Her face instantly changed from excitement into wide eyed shock. She just stood in front of the door without knocking and just stared at the head. She just kept staring at it while mumbling to herself things like "Is that real?", "Who would do that?" and "Who lives here?!".
Eventually she started taking a few steps backwards, still staring at the head, in silence and then she suddenly took off for the next house screaming.

Inside the house we were celebrating how well it worked. We only put that head out there because we didn't have enough money to buy candy and fruit (mainly mandarins and oranges) to hand out to more kids!

Yes my family is cheap.

That was the best Halloween I could remember and probably ever will.

Actually, the purpose of Halloween, for Celts, it was made to ward off evil spirits. For Christians, it's meant to honour all the saints as Halloween is short for All-hallow-even because it was the evening befoer All Hallow's Day aka All Saints Day. So no, it's not satanic in anyway. In fact, it's pro-religion. :3

Not really. It may be originally that, but it's almost nothing close in this day and age. All about greed of food (tasty food mind you) and dressing up as evil entities, or nice. You ask a kid and it's all about the candy.

lmao; it is originally that. But also, yeah the kids go trick or treatin' because of the candy. Even so, it's still one of my favourite holidays :3 I don't really look at it as a greed of food though, but more like a fun purpose where the kids just wander in these cute or scary costumes for candy...so it's pretty much begging..?? mmm yeah.. i sort of agree i guess
