One of my favorite Halloween traditions has to be my annual party. I have three acres with the back half of it woods, so I have tons of decor, fire pits, live bands and other entertainment. People can set up a tent if they plan to drink, and the neighbors either come over, or are nice enough to ignore the cars and noise for one night.
I will put this contest on my blog- http://nightanddayartetc.blogspot.com/
At my Facebook fan page- http://www.facebook.com/pages/Night-and-Day-Polymer-Clay-and-Etc/128555793830546
and also my regular Facebook profile page- http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100000470295147
As well as my Hive blog-

Thanks for the chance for prizes. I am always trying to add other artists' work to my collection.

My favorite part of Halloween are the kids dressing up and trick or treating. We trick or treat first and then come back to the house and hand out candy.

Owwwwww...what a wonderful event. One that gives and gets...gives to those that come to visit and gives all of your wonderful artist the chance for others to see their work.

One of our favorite Halloween traditions is the carving of the pumpkin. We as a family sit and decide just what we want our pumpkin to look like. Then we all dig in (literally) and get to work...together!!!

Hugs,
Regi

One of our family's Halloween traditions is decorating the yard. We have hay bales and witches and scarecrows and pumpkins. The neighborhood kids love to see what we do every year. It all very fun and whimsical cause I don't want to scare the little ones who come to the door.

Janet Ghio said...

What a great give away! When i was a little girl and living in Ohio in the 50's we used to say "it's beggars night" rather than trick or treat. My mother was from kansas, so I don't know if this was a kansas or an Ohio tradition.

Jennifer MacNeill-Traylor said...

Halloween is the best - makes me feel like a kid again! My mom and I do the Chadds Ford Great Pumpkin Carve every year, that is one of my favorite traditions. We also have a huge Halloween party.

Jingle said...

Wow! This is fabulous! I love the CANDY!!! I always go get stuff that I like and then 'forget' to put it in the bowl for the kids! That's a favorite tradition of mine! LOL!

Hi!

I'd love to enter!

One of my favorite Halloween Traditions?

Every year my friends and I hold a Tarot reading by candlelight... outside... in the woods. It's creepy... and fun, and we take along Hot Caramel Apple Cider!

Bettina Groh said...

It's always been about Trick or Treating!! The first October after we arrived from England I had no idea why all my friends were walking up our driveway wearing "stuff".... but they told me all about it and happily I joined the group. Every year we brought to our homes bags of treats and $$$$. Our "costumes" were handmade... rags, dirt made by burnt corks and so on. But we had a ball.
Now my grandchildren are following suit, tho' lucky for them, their Mother whips up "creations" for them to wear!

In the Light of the Moon said...

Wow this is a great giveaway!!One of my fav Halloween traditions has to be decorating and getting the house ready with the kids.Now they ask me..When Mom are we going to decorate?

Here in the uk halloween is not a huge thing but my family still celebrate it anyway, we have a party every year, decorate the house and go trick or treating, whatever the weather ;)

Redfish Artwork by Vickie Fisher said...

My favorite time of the year, Halloween! We always made homemade costumes growing up because we did not have stores that made them back in the days. That made us use our imaginations. I think that is what made it so much fun!

vredfish@gmail.com
Happy Halloween!!!

Kelli Bear Haven said...

My favorite Halloween tradition is gathering leaves up and stuffing them in the plastic pumpkins and ghost to fill them up. Then I hang the ghost in my trees. I would love to be entered in your giveaway.

You're never too old for Halloween, I say. I LOVE getting dressed up each year. I work PT at a bookstore at our local mall, and I LOVE being able to hand out trick or treat candies to the kids each year. They always have such fabulous costumes. And they have a great time receiving treats from someone who is also dressed up. It's so innocent and fun. And who can resist a sweet treat! ;)

Mimi said...

When my kids were little, the adults would take a beer or a cup with them and many of the houses would offer a "treat" to the adults too. Some warm mulled wine, cider, or even just a beer. It really made Trick or Treating in cold Michigan weather fun!

The Traveler said...

I love bobbing for apples..but that just might be because I had a huge mouth as a kid and was the only game I completely dominate, lol.

Anonymous said...

And I thought I was the Halloween Queen ... nice to know I am not the only one obsessed with Halloween. My favorite memories are building a Haunted House in my home town with my dad when I was young. I now try to spook out my own home and have a Halloween costume party each year. I would love to win any of the posted items ... they are all awesome. Happy Haunting!! leslieboeddeker@hotmail.com

Marina said...

I grew up in Italy where there is no Halloween! :-( I know I missed out on decades of fun! We have the day of the Dead but it's not as fun as the Mexican one either. We simply go to the cemetery and bring flowers to our dear departed ones.
Since I moved to the US, Halloween has been the highlight of the holidays. I really love decorating and I drive around my county every year to see other decorated houses/yards. I also wear my Witch's outfit and I can feel my true self! ;-)

It would be great to win a Halloween thingie...... thanks for the thrill of a giveaway!

One of our Halloween traditions is the redressing of the mannequin who lives atop the refrigerator. I'm thinking of doing a black cat number on her this year.

T.L. Holmes said...

Oh, how I do love Halloween!! So many traditions to choose from. I'll start with this one: I always decorate the house on October 1st (this includes nearly every room in my house in one way or another and my front door/porch area). Some of my decorations are from my own childhood (a painted, illuminated haunted house my mother made when I was very young...about 30 years ago). I'm so excited to blog about the contest as well. I'll be back tomorrow to enter again!

Dirgesinger said...

Ooooooo *dancing through the room* that is one I was waiting desperately for to celebrate my love of all seasons:):) Please count me in!!!!

In my country, Halloween is best seen as a passing fashion, or as an "American silly habit we don't need". But I definitely do not share these ideas - as a goth, as a taphophile, as a deeply Autumnal person, as a Halloween addict. It is hard for me to pick just one favourite tradition - maybe it shall be the lighting of candles and digging apples into the Earth for the dead to have guiding lights and food on their way of passing into the Other World. I do this every year.

Cornerstoregoddess said...

Just blogged your giveaway and posted on FaceBook! Good luck!

Nicole said...

I love Halloween and every yesr for 7 years we though a big Bash! My fav tradition would be the Chilli in the crockpot and bundling my kids up to go out and SPOOK!

I have posted to my FB Page and spooked out my Blog. How fun!

Suzie said...

I love everything associated with Halloween, but one of the things I always loved the most was making my three kid's costumes each year. .and surprisingly, even though they are now grown, I still get a phone calls from two of them (usually at the last minute!), asking if I could make their costume "just one more time" lol

Thank you for offering this awesome giveaway! What super-duper fun!!!

Jeannie said...

I am not sure my comment went through the first time. My favorite thing about Halloween is creating a mini haunted forest out of fallen tree limbs on my front lawn. My husband pounds holes into the lawn with a stake and hammer and then I push the branches into the ground. I decorate the branches with ghosts, spiders, cobwebs, and bats. The trick or treaters have to walk through the haunted forest to get their candy. I spread the path with snappoers that pop when the kids walk on them. The forest goes up Halloween Day and comes down right after the last trick or treater leaves. That way it is a magical forest that appears only once a year. Please enter me into your contest, jdelsordo@dorchesterlibrary.org

Our favorite Halloween tradition has been taking our daughter trick or treating. Unfortunately, the tradition has ended as she is now in college, but I enjoyed it each and every time as seen through the wonder in her eyes.

Our Halloween tradition is to watch "Lady in White" I just love that movie.

Ms. Howdy said...

My favorite Halloween tradition has to be decorating the house. I collect everything Halloween and creepy and love growing my collection every year. I love fall festivals, corn mazes, pumpkin patches, haunted houses, scary movies, and games...but I'd like to start a new tradition of an annual Halloween party. Maybe this year!

Christina said...

My Halloween tradition is my Halloween party I have every year. We all get together, watch scary movies and eat a lot of good food!

Sacred Yoli said...

I love Halloween, however in my culture, Dia De Los Muertos is how we celebrate the Halloween season.

This year, we will be hosting a huge Dia De Los Muertos Fiesta, featuring a community altar! I can't wait!

Conscious Art Studios ~ Jeanne and John Fry said...

Our favorite tradition was going to the Cider Mill in Endicott NY. At the Cider Mill you could watch the donuts being made fresh. As you walked through there were barrels of candy apples, sweetbreads and gallons of cider for sale. When you were finished you could go to the Playhouse at the back of the building with your cider and donuts and watch a play.

Digital Misfit said...

When I was little, my favorite tradition was trick-or-treating of course.
Now that I am all grown up (or at least I APPEAR all grown up!), I still love trick-or-treating, except now I am on the other side of the door.
I love seeing all of the adorable little costumes and the smiling faces so full of excitement. The handmade costumes get extra candy!

Cris said...

This Give Away is EPIC!! I love all the wonderful art! Halloween is a folk art lover's dream~ My favorite tradition is all the decorating and having an open house for adults and children alike with chili and chicken wings!

The Bird said...

One of my favorite traditions (out of sooo many we observe) is our annual Dumb Supper. Table is set in the finest gothic fashion with the ancestor chair draped in black gossamer, home cooked meal of several seasonal courses (like colcannon, corn chowder, pork tenderloin, pumpkin tarts - just to name a few). All family members write messages to whomever they wish and leave it under "their" plate. At the end of the meal, we burn all papers in a fireproof dish and take them outside for the wind to 'deliver' the ashes to our loved ones. I could write a novel with details about the whole event, but that's it in a pumpkin shell ;) Good luck everyone! My email is raven(underscore)fae97 (at)yahoo(dot)com Happy Hauntings!

Having lived in Africa for many years where Halloween is only just becoming a commercial attraction, we held a Halloween party for our sewing group. Returning to live in the UK last year we joined in the fun. Made carved pumpkins with candles to put outside the front door, put up black cat and pumpkin cut outs in the front windows and of course had a supply of sweeties for the neighbour's children!

Each year before Halloween I put up the Halloween tree and decorate it with handmade creepy dolls from crafty friends. We also love to hand out candy and race with my Aunt to see who gets the most trick or treaters!

Starry Nites Farm said...

What a great idea! Count me in please.

My favorite Halloween event to do every year is to have a hay ride. We hook a trailer to the tractor, load it with hay, and take everyone for a ride in the trails. It's great fun! Then we come back for treats and games.

You can email me at: starrynitesfarm@msn.com

Posting a link on my blog now and a mention for a blog post today!

Chris in the Emerald City said...

My favorite Halloween tradition is giving out glow necklaces instead of candy. It makes our place quite popular, with repeat visitors! It is so fun to look out and see all the glow necklaces moving up and down the street in the dark. I get them at the dollar store really cheap. It also makes the kiddos more visible to drivers on the street.

Peace,
Chris...........

Please enter me! Our family tradition is to make a large batch of Monster Cookies for class parties and trick or treaters. Each one is about as big as a dessert plate! It takes one full day, 1 dozen eggs a jar of peanut butter and a bag of m&ms and a few other goodies, but the result is well worth it!
Good luck every one!

Wow! What a fantastic giveaway. The artwork is awesome! My favorite Halloween tradition is to give out candy to all the little trick or treaters. I especially love the 2-5 year old ones. My boys and I also carve a jack o lantern for on our front porch. At seven pm we leave to go to a friends house who immigrated from Sardinia, Italy and have some good Italian food and some wine.

Sure hope I am one of the lucky winning names. My email is beggworld@msn.com.

Sherry H. said...

I love Halloween and My tradition is to decorate the house from top to bottom with Halloween decor. Lots of Jack-O-lanterns and witches. I usually start at the beginning of October with Fall items and add the Halloween things as the holiday approaches. Our little grandsons love it. Another tradition is to go Trick or Treating with the little grandsons. It used to be our children, now it's theirs. :)

Divaeva said...

Costumes - definitely costumes! Every year growing up we started planning and preparing months in advance to creat the perfect costume - back them mom made the costumes...but when i got older - oh my....I went hog wild! Every year our goal was to go out to a planned bar with big prizes and collect out bounty! I must have banked over $3,000 in prize money over the years! I am 47 years old now, and although Ihave out grown the bar scene...I still MUST dress up - even if it is to simply answer the door to hand out candy! Doesn't everyone love to play dress up? Happy hauntings!

Heather said...

I have to say my favorite Halloween tradition is getting all of the decor out of the boxes and turning my house into a fallish/Halloween haven. This will be my first Halloween with children, so I can't wait to make new holiday traditions with them!

HopHopJingleBoo said...

hello, just found your blog link on reto rudolphs blog.. hmm ..my new tradition in the past few years has been doing a Halloween tree and adding Halloween artist made ornaments every year..

BPPD Designs said...

One of our many Family Halloween Traditions is going to the Pumpkin Patch every year and enjoying the day.....Such Great FUN!!!!! We always come home with Huge pumpkins and Tiny Pumpkins and New Halloween Decor if something catches my eye in the Gift Shop!!!

Stephanie Mealor Corder said...

I just realized that in my first comment, I said nothing about Halloween traditions! It's my favorite holiday, so I do have many.....I guess my favorite would have to be every year when it's time for the kids to go trick or treating, I take a picture of them and my Dad departing at dusk with the street lamps glowing in the distance. With each year, my Dad stays the same, but the kids of course have gotten bigger. I love it as a way of marking the passage of time and commemorating each Halloween.

Awesome Art! I love decorating and making stuff with my daughter. She loves Halloween as much as me. Her bday is All Saints Day so we usually have a bday/halloween party. :)

My favorite Halloween tradition resides in my childhood. The town had a kid's parade every Halloween. Kids in costumes lined up and 1st, 2nd and 3rd place prizes were awarded for each grade. It was great.

For me it's all about the decorating. I usually stuff old overalls and a flannel shirt with hay to make a scarecrow that sits on my porch. I light luminaries I made years ago with candles to light the path to the door, and a big Halloween wreath hangs by the door. Some years I get ambitious and carve pumpkins. I often have a bucket filled with water and apples for bobbing, but this is for the adults and never for children.

The inside of the house is also decorated with Halloween themed decorations, both scary and not.A witch's hat graces the entry. It's one of my favorite times of the year.

I'll be back when I've blogged about the giveaway. Thanks for allowing me to enter.

It's just a magical time of the year.

Our favorite tradition is carving pumpkins. Some are funny, scary or just plain goofy! We try and at least get 2 each and with 5 of us that is a ton of pumpkin guts.... LOL!

...making the costumes....still my favorite thing to do!

For our family it's the decorating, and carving pumpkins. Even though my kids are grown, we all still spend one whole day getting the yard done. As weird as this may sound, we have a firetruck(2actually)that we decorate as well. All the kids that come by love it, and parents want their pix with it. We all dress up and hand out candy. It really is great family time.

My favourite tradition is to watch scary movies while giving out candy. I was too young to see a lot of old scary movies when they first came out so it's fun to catch up on them. They really don't seem very scary, on second thought :-)

Oh, I love everything Halloween! Decorating, creating a spook house, trick or treating with little ones or handing out candy. Creating all sorts of halloween cards and projects and sharing them. Halloween has changed for me as my children have grown, but now that I have grandchildren, the fun starts all over again!

Lovely page w/ great colors!

We lived way out in the country ... no where to trick or treat. My memories are of mom driving us to my grandmother's little neighborhood. I would go out with my cousins. One household always made popcorn balls. I can not imagine how long that took her. I always wanted to be a gypsy 'cause I could wear rouge & lipstick. LOL

Kellie said...

I have to every year make the jello dirt cake grave yard. My daughter is going to be 23 and my son is 17 and I still make it for them.

Becky said...

Hello! Halloween has always been one of my favorite holidays! Our only tradition was to go trick or treating. One special memory was when I was 7 and my grandmother dressed up and went with me. She had as much fun as a kid! She loved trying to get the neighbors to guess who she was and nobody could! They would always guess a kid and not a 61 year old grandma!

Thanks for the opportunity to win one of your beautiful items!!

Thank you so much for this giveaway for whomever wins!

Wendy said...

This is a very new Halloween tradition for me that started last year. On the Travel Channel they have this show "Ghost Adventures" that I love! The guys are cute and they go to some really wicked haunted places. Every Halloween they pick one of the most haunted places around (last year it was this old, deserted and scary sanatorium)where for all of the Halloween Day and Night they live film it so people can call in and say if they've seen any spirits or presences...I loved it last year and felt I was right there..So, that's my favorite new Halloween tradition. Thanks again for the giveaway!

One of my favorite Halloween traditions is making costumes for my grandchildren. It is always a challenge. They tell me what they want to be, usually in August or September and then I go to work lloking for material and creative ways to make the best costumes possible.

Mother's Moon's Message said...

what a wonderful idea.... so glad I ran across your site... Lets see a Halloween tradition... I love carving the pumpkins. In fact yesterday I noticed that the pumpkins are starting to arrive in various places. I usually end up with a house full and usually can not bring myself to get rid of any of them until I absolutely have to. I have one that I still have from last year in fact. It just seems to put the whole place in that festive Samhain spirit. I know it is only September but already the pumpkins are accumulating...

One of my favorite Halloween traditions or things to do is being able to put up all sorts of "witchy" decorations and not having anyone take offense :) The Witch is In!

Deanna Hogan said...

What a great giveaway! I'd love to join the fun. One of my favorite traditions (besides eating way too much candy) is a more recent one. I work in an Emergency Department, and each year we'd have a staff pumpkin decorating contest. Patients and staff would vote on the best. The only rule - NOT cutting into the pumpkin, so it would last through the month. The creativity was amazing.

I love sitting outside and watching all the kids walk around and give out halloween candy. We do usually go to an apple orchard though, so I suppose that's another good tradition.

One of my favorite Halloween traditions is playing dark and stormy music from speakers hidden on our front porch. Of course the porch will be decorted as well, with flying bats and witches with glowing eyes and lots of pumpkins and spiders.
I am off now to spread the word.

Jane said...

One of my favorite Halloween traditions is to buy 3 to 5 pumpkins at the beginning of October and display them in the front yard. The week before Halloween I carve them into the spookiest, scariest faces I can do. My goal is to scare small children. ;)

Great blog and AWESOME giveaway!!!!! I LOVE Halloween and probably have more traditions than most. Decorating-inside and out but before decorating another tradition is Halloween shopping. Always on the lookout for new ideas and decorations. The shopping is pre and post (have to get the markdowns for those things I didn't purchase pre!) I always participate in at least one (who am I kidding?), several art swaps and collaborative books/decos. Create as many altered art projects as necessary. Go on a ghost walk. Host a Halloween party. A trip to the pumpkin patch and farmers market for hay bales, pumpkins, corn stalks, etc.Those are some of my favorite traditions.

JoAnne said...

Will post on my blog too!

K(Banterings of a Basketcase) said...

My favorite part of halloween is the costume! When else can I show up at work in fairy wings? I also love anything pumpkin (pumkin latte, pumpkin muffins, etc), candy, and caramel apples. I have my own traditions of setting up a dia de los muertos altar, and leaving food out for both the dead and the fairies.

Judith said...

My fav tradition was the "dead" dinner. We would cook all day, and set the table for thoes that passed and of course us also, and we sat and ate with them, talked to them, told them all the news! It was a wonderful tradition!

~Lavender Dreamer~ said...

How wonderful! Our 'new' tradition is having grandsons stop by to fill their bags and show off their costumes! Picture taking...and fun! Thanks for the amazing giveaway! ♥

TickleTeckla said...

My favorite tradition is having a big dinner and setting a place for the people in our lives that have passed on.

AvDB said...

My favorite tradition is splitting the quirky with the ceremonial -- Lighting all of my lanterns and setting a spooky scene for the trick-or-treaters, then retreating to the backyard in the later hours for a bonfire and observation of Samhain.

Ken said...

My favorite Halloween tradition is decorating up the entire house and yard and putting on our free annual Haunted house for our entire town. We get between 500-700 kids and adults through in about 3 hours on Halloween night. Everyone who comes through gets candy. We have been doing this for well over 10 years now and it just gets bigger and better every year. The kids love it and i now have kids that used to come through the haunt bringing their kids through it too. It is such a reward to see all the smiles and laughs and screams each Halloween!

One of my favorite traditions is getting together with my extended family for trick or treating. My sister in law makes white bean/chicken chili and I bring cornbread and dessert. The kids get to go out and collect candy while grandma stays home and passes more out to the people who come to our door. Fun times!

Calandreya said...

I'm a bookcrosser, but this tradition began before BookCrossing, with comics, originally. All through the year, whenever I go to thrift shops or garage sales, I purchase children's books that have Halloween, scary, magic, or other related topics. On Halloween, our large front porch is bordered in tables full of books for all ages, even board books for babies.

Each child who comes to our house can choose as many books as they want, plus they get a goodie bag full of pencils, crayons, erasers, sharpeners, and anything else I find for fun, as well as candy.

We provide books for children and adults. Sometimes, the kids will come, leave, and ten minutes later a few parents will come to the house with quickly made paper-plate masks, asking for books.

We also provide "parent packs" which are a zip baggie filled with a packet of tissues, a couple band-aids, and a few chocolate mini treats for the parents. We provide cold bottled water from a cooler and hot coffee from a thermos. It's like having a party on the porch, but with a book theme. I usually give away 150-200 books a year, mostly to children, and every year they're more excited to see our porch.

We chat books with anyone who likes them. We've only missed one year since 2000, and it was to attend our son's Halloween wedding.

petiroja is at gmail dot com. I'm also 4libros on BookCrossing.com if anyone wants to look me up.

Leathra said...

Hmmm....favorite tradition....I do really like bobbing for apples and making mulled wine, but I'm going to have to give it to divining. I read runes, a lot of my friends do tarot, so with Samhain being a great night to do readings we all do a reading swap!

Sue said...

The best part of Halloween, is everything!!! We plan next year's events on November 1st every year. Since we live in the middle of nowhere, we drive the children to a near by subdivision for trick or treating. It's a great place, some of the homes have treats for the adults too (aka jell-o shots). Then we have a party for all the childrens' friends on the weekend.
My son decorates the yard from the roof to the ground with all things macabre. We make all the costumes and all kinds of food. We also have a Halloween "advent" calendar. It's great for this is our New Year celebration.

My favorite tradition is spending it with my grandkids. This means I have to drive to them, and sometimes I have to drive hours to get to them, but it is fun when I get there.

Caroline said...

Great giveaway! I love to help make props with my hubby and we have also spent some time working on a Halloween trail scaring people!

My favorite Halloween tradition is decorating the house and going out trick or treating with my kids. Nothing can beat the happiness and excitement in their faces!

dragonmamma said...

My birthday is October 3rd, so that's my official kick-off for the Halloween Season. That's when I get out all my seasonal kitchen-goodies: Halloween mugs, plates, tablecloths, etc. I can't very well celebrate my birthday without eating off of scary plates, now can I?
