Friday's Top Ten
The top ten things about Halloween:
7. Candy Corn
3. Haunted Houses
And the #1 thing about Halloween:
Trick or Treat!
Great list- trick or treat- right on the mark for number one. I'm small enough to still do it too...hehe.

Don't forget that Halloween adds several billion dollars to the U.S. economy every year. That's the kind of economic stimulus that we really need.
Tossing It Out

I saw a real bat a few weeks ago. Sleeping peacefully on the side of a house. He was very cute.

The saddest thing about Halloween? All the stores have already geared up for Christmas. Too soon! I mean, isn't Thanksgiving a holiday too?
I've got some Halloween fun at my blog today. :-)
Romance with a Twist--of Mystery

I love Halloween! On Halloween we're allowed to be anyone we want to be... even ourselves.
October 29, 2010 at 9:50 AM
Have a happy Halloween. Yum, candy.
And speaking of witches, my baby girl is dressing as a witch this year (her first halloween). She's SOOOO cute. I have pictures of her on my facebook page.

Summer - Lucky you! Be sure to check all your candy :)
Arlee - I'll second that one.
LR - I've only seen a bat once, in a parking garage. It wasn't sleeping. Scared me to death.
Terry - I know. Sad. I'll be over to check out your fun!
VR - Yes!

Love your list, but it needs an Addendum, maybe number 3A: CHOCOLATE! Especially with a little coffee on the side.

Alex J. Cavanaugh
Just give me the candy...
October 29, 2010 at 10:23 AM
I'm really hungry now...LOL!
Great list here! Have a wonderful weekend and boo-tiful Halloween!
October 29, 2010 at 10:41 AM
Great list, as always!
Brings back childhood memories, especially of haunted houses--one my friend cooked up. It was spooky!! I especially remember the macaroni for brains.
But the best was trick or treat. One elderly man in my neighborhood wouldn't give us a treat until we recited something. I think I recited a nursery rhyme. Ah...gone are those days. It was fun.

Linda - You'll all have a ball with First Halloween. I know she's the cutest witch ever :)
Joanne - You got it! No day is complete without chocolate and coffee.
Alex - LOL...I think you've been to my door!
Laura - And a boo-tiful Halloween to you, too :)

Bats would fall a little higher on my list, but I’ve always love bats. They are so darn cute.
October 29, 2010 at 11:04 AM
Great list as usual Carol - and candy always wins. However, bats? Hate'em. Rats with wings.
October 29, 2010 at 11:05 AM
Ann - Happy to bring back memories for you. One man on our block had a big dog of some kind, maybe a boxer, and on Halloween the dog came with him to the door...wearing sunglasses.
Holly - Hmm...loves bats. Okay. Smiling :)
Elspeth - I think they're a little freaky, but I've never met one up close and personal.
October 29, 2010 at 11:17 AM
I love your list! Am heading off to the shops for pumpkins and chocolates now! ;) Happy Haunting my dear!
October 29, 2010 at 11:38 AM
Happy Halloween, Carol!
I love this post because I love Halloween. I agree with your list ;)
And for adults, I recommend going/attending anywhere they're playing "The Rocky Horror Picture Show". It's so much fun!
October 29, 2010 at 11:53 AM
Trick or treat! Yay for Hallowe'en! It's such a great time of year.
Have a happy weekend!
October 29, 2010 at 11:59 AM
Happy Halloween! I love your list. I have heard a rumor there are Halloweed Peeps now. If that's true, it may have to be on your list next year.
October 29, 2010 at 12:13 PM
Talei - Happy Haunting to you!
Claudia - Halloween is one of my favorite holidays. Yea for Rocky Horror!!!
Talli - I think so, too.
Lydia - I haven't heard the Peeps rumor. Next trip to the store I'm looking :)

So, are you going trick-or-treating? The only thing I don't like about living out here in the country is that we don't have kids out here going from door to door. The doors are too far apart. LOL
When we lived in a city, I loved seeing all the kids and their costumes.
October 29, 2010 at 1:24 PM
I am so down with #7. Actually, the whole list except maybe real bats and haunted houses. I love Halloween.
Have a fun Halloween weekend!
October 29, 2010 at 1:50 PM
Love your list. Great scary movies are good at Halloween too. Have a Happy Halloween weekend.

Happy Halloween I justs topped by from Theresa's blog am following u now.
October 29, 2010 at 2:09 PM
Maryann - No trick or treating for me. I'm the stay-here-and-hand-out-candy person. Last year I was a witch. This year maybe a gypsy fortune teller.
Theresa - So do I, complete with haunted houses :) Thanks for following. And thanks to Talli for introducing me to your blog.
Mason - Scary movies - yes. But I don't do tooooo scary :)
Joanna - Welcome to the Tiki Hut! And thanks for following. Come back any time.
October 29, 2010 at 2:57 PM
All in the right order, too!
However, I'm w/ Mason about watching scary movies.
I always make sure that I have plenty of buttered popcorn & Coke [in a chilled glass w/ extra ice & a wedge of lemon!] & watch the original  version of Halloween.
October 29, 2010 at 3:33 PM
Carol - All fun stuff about Halloween. My kids are so excited. =D
October 29, 2010 at 4:09 PM
My top ten would be chocolate, chocolate....

October 29, 2010 at 6:13 PM
Lisa - A Halloween tradition! Have a great one.
RaShelle - I know they are. Have fun :)
Gail - I'm hoping we have some Reese's left in the bag.
Words Crafter - Oooh, yeah. And spooky music :)
October 29, 2010 at 8:12 PM

Welcome to the Tiki Hut, Francine. Loved the ghost horse story at your blog.
October 30, 2010 at 9:16 AM
Happy Halloween! My favorite part: scary movies.
October 30, 2010 at 10:02 PM
A couple of others commented about scary movies being their thing, too. We now have the Tiki Hut Scary Movie Club :)
