WikiTree Halloween: Ghosts in the Tree

+14 votes

Hello WikiTreers!

Halloween is upon us and we'd like to see what you are up to! Do you have a fun costume, did you carve a pumpkin (or maybe a pineapple? I've seen those), is your house decked out with decorations?

Share with us photos, stories, or anything else spooky related!

I plan on sharing these during the LiveCast next week (which falls on Halloween).

I only dress up a little and give out candy to about 100 children. My neighbors across the street go all out with the entire outside and inside of their house decorated with even a seance room, so I just look across the street at their decorations. I just left their yard where I took this photo, guess I am lucky to not be a science experiment.surprise

Gorgeous photo Alexis love it
Thank you Susan for the star.  The sign in their yard says, “  Trespassers will be used for Science Experiments.” I am wondering if the children will show up this year, if they don’t—I will have a bunch of candy to eat.
I find your garden absolutely amazing, but I am not shore if there will be any children,how sweet of you you are sweet

Halloween turned out to be great fun for the 85 children that came for treats under a Blue Moon. Of course, I wore a mask and gloves and set outside, but it was great to see the children so happy getting treats.

That is wonderful Alexis wow 85 children i know you where worried if there came any

You really are the cutest

You can get a taste of what the England Project has planned for Halloween on G2G here.

It's going to be a weekend of WikiTree fun as we build and connect profiles for witches, ghouls and other folks connected to paranormal events in England. Watch out for the zombies!

Bumping this up as we're going live tomorrow! Will be on the stream and ready to share some spooky stuff!

As far as costumes go, I was a kid in the '80s and '90s. I had an interesting selection. Dunno if we took pics. But, I was...

* A Vampire
* The dinobot Snarl from the Transformers
* Raphael of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles
* Spider-Man
* Superman
* Gizmo from Gremlins

I forget what else. Maybe a mad scientist?

Chris, Here is a link to a Page of photos of my sons various Halloween costumes dating from 2003 to 2015 - they were as follows -

(baby or toddler) Pumpkin
Disco Dancer
Grim Reaper
Hockey umpire
Very cool costumes. =D That Superman costume is really cool. We never had any of that padding. It was a Superman t-shirt, long sleeved shirt and a cape my aunt made.

Not much is going on for Halloween this year in my little corner of NYC, so instead I shall share a story from a previous Halloween.

A few years ago, my friend's heavy metal band was playing a Halloween concert in the basement of ABC No Rio, a combination squat/radical arts center in New York City's Lower East Side. I was at the show, trying to stay out of the mosh pit -- I don't mosh, I am too willowy and delicate. A guy in a banana suit comes flying out of the mosh pit and careens into me, which injures my back!

When my friend David finished his set and got off stage, he found me looking all twisted up and I told him what I just told y'all. Enraged, he yelled out, "Where is he! I'll kick his $%#!" but the problem was, there were 3 or 4 guys in banana suits there, and I wasn't sure which one had messed up my back and I didn't want David to beat up the wrong banana suit guy!

Now I wasn't around for '70s NYC, but I've heard stories from people who were, who told me that in Halloweens past, people would rip the wooden doors off of buildings and light them on fire in the streets!

Jessica, my cousin sent me a photo of how fabulous her neighborhood was decorated in NYC. I had no idea what a big event Halloween in NYC has been. Thank you for the  story about the banana suits. I sure hope your back is better now.
