Halloween Giveaway #1

My favorite time of year is here!!! Yup, Halloween =) TODAY is officially the beginning of the celebration for me. It's the day I pull out all the decorations and start making the house (a little more) creepy for the season...I'll be posting pics of my goodies later and I have some fun stuff planned for you throughout the month but to kick things off I wanna give you a chance to win my favorite Halloween movie of all time....Trick R Treat.

From Amazon....

The doorbell rings, the cry goes out: Trick 'R Treat! But, wait. What's actually going on during this ghostly All Hallows Eve? Something eerie and unexpected. Something splattered and spooky. Something that brings ghouls, vampires and werewolves into the night. Answer the door – a shocking surprise awaits. From producer Bryan Singer (director of X-Men and Superman Returns) and writer-director Michael Dougherty (co-scripter of X2 and Superman Returns) comes a multitale bag of wicked yarns, four cleverly interlocked stories built on Shocktober admonitions like always check the candy and don’t extinguish the jack-o-lantern before midnight. So answer the door now: Experience horror made for today's fright fan.

No other movie, for me, quite captures the spirit of Halloween so brilliantly. The cinematography is GORGEOUS, but don't just take my word for it, check out the trailer...

To enter, just tell me your favorite Halloween tradition in the comments section. (I LOVE pumpkin year I did a Johnny Depp theme, last year I did "Sam" from this movie =) Please include your email address so I can contact you if you win.

I don't want to enter because I already own this awesome movie, but I agree that it's one of the best Halloween films out there. :D It's sad that a lot of people haven't heard of it.

My younger two kids are too little to carve pumpkins so I set them up with a diverse color of paints every year and let them go to town. When they are down, we push funny face pieces onto the pumpkin. My oldest does his own carving and gets better each year. I also buy them one new dancing and singing halloween character each year. It's annoying 'cause they play it over and over again, but I love my kids, so I put up with annoying :) We also make mummy hot dogs for dinner on halloween

Hi Angie,

Halloween has always been one of my favorites. Some of my favorite Halloween Traditions come from when I was younger. As kids (tweens) we would go, after Trick-r-Treating of course, to the cemetery and scare ourselves with scary stories. Right across the cemetery was this old Haunted looking house on a hill. So after the stories we would trick ourselves into believing that we would see scary stuff (blood on the walls, some ghostly image walking in the yard, etc.) When we were done scaring ourselves (and the girls that were with us) we would head back to one of our houses and eat Pumpkin shaped sugar cookies (you know the orange ones) and drink Apple Cider while watching the Fat Albert Halloween Special ( and It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown. The weather in WA in October is perfect Fall/Halloween type of weather, which just added to the awesomeness of it all.. Great memories, of some great traditions. =)

I've never seen the movie, but my favorite part of Halloween is probably doing a marathon of just terrible horror movies. It's great fun and we never get trick-or-treaters around where I live, so it works.
