Halloween Blogfest: Charity Parkerson

Halloween Time Memories

October is my favorite month, and I thought it might be fun to share a memory from our childhood (or adulthood) about Halloween. There are no rules. It can be funny or sweet, it doesn’t matter. As an extra incentive, I will be giving away a $5.00 Amazon gift card to one randomly drawn commenter along with a few e-copies of my books. Don’t forget to add your email address to your comment along with your preference for Kindle or PDF copies, so I’ll know where to find you and which format to send if you win.

I will kick things off…

When I was a kid; we lived way out in the woods. There were a total of 4 houses within walking distance, we knew everyone who lived in those houses, and 3 of them were relatives. Each year, my sister and I would dress up in our–usually homemade costumes, get our pillowcases, and walk to all 4 houses. Our first stop would always be my Aunt Effie’s house. Now Aunt Effie was easily 100 years old, and seeing us in our costumes was always the highlight of her year. Each year, she made a special batch of cornbread for us. We would knock on her door, and yell Trick-or-Trick then she would scoop out the cornbread and dump it in our bags, NO ZIPLOC OR ANYTHING!! This is why we went there first! We would smile and say our thanks, before running down the road, and shaking our bags out in the ditch before moving on to the candy. 🙂

As awful as that sounds, it made her happy to give us that cornbread, and it made up happy to see her excited so it worked out for everyone. Now, it’s your turn. What is your favorite Halloween memory?

Remember: Charity is giving away a $5 Amazon GC + digital copies of her books to commenters today, so leave her a message and you’re entered to win.

  1. I remember planning my freshman dorm’s Halloween party…the other two gals became close friends, so that was nice. I was a little squicked out about the dance at a nearby mausoleum, though…

    Hmm, I’d have to say one of my fave Halloween memories is the year me and the family went to a pumpkin farm which still did hayrides, had a cornmaze and then after we got to pick out a pumpkin. I loved the small of the hay and there where pumpkins and cornstalks everywhere as far as you could see. 😀

    PDF is my preferred format-thanks

    Since my birthday is the day after Halloween, it’s always been my favorite holiday. The memory that sticks out the most for me is the year my mother took my Halloween candy haul and used it for party treats at my birthday party. I thought that was just wrong! I worked hard for that haul. 😀

  5. I remember going with my best friend to a hayride and a party at a stable and that was a whole lot of fun. The horses were amazing. Lately though, I love memories of my hubby and I watching monster movies with the fur babies after giving out candy all night to over sugared neighborhood kids. 🙂

    Happy Halloween! Thanks for the giveaway. Love the look of your books and will be adding you to my TBR list. 🙂

      Awww! It’s sad that nowadays we’d never allow our kids to eat anything homemade from a stranger. Then again, it’s equally amazing we’ve lived as long as we have. 😉

      Thanks for joining in.
