Growing up, Halloween was my favorite holiday. I loved dressing up, I loved seeing the costumes my friends and classmates would wear, I loved being scared at the different decorations throughout my neighborhood and I loved collecting free candy.

My friends and I would strategize which houses to hit first to maximize the amount of candy we could carry home in our pillowcases.
