Word on the Street

sarahsmith“When I was younger, I would always go to my mom’s friend’s house, who was like a grandma to me. We would pass out candy together. She dressed up like the grandma from Halloween Town. I didn’t like walking around talking to people, because strangers scared me. So, I passed out candy. I’ve never actually been trick or treating.”

alondra“So, what I like to do is sit around on the couch in covers and watch scary movies until Halloween is over. My favorite is probably “The Nightmare Before Christmas.” I watch it every year.”

micky“Trick or treat, but we also had a Trunk or Treat way back when, around the courthouse. For my family, we live out in the country and we don’t have to deal with trick or treaters. But we go trick or treating at other houses and other towns sometimes, Floydada, Lockney, Plainview. The rich houses give the good candy.”

cross“My family would stay at home, buy a lot of candy, and hand it out. At the end of the night, we would go out walking around and seeing whose porch lights were still on and hit the houses that still had candy.
