Do your teens like Halloween? Is there a special dance/event at the school? Do you allow them to go trick or treating? Do they like to go to local haunted houses/Halloween events? Watch scary movies?

DS19 always liked Halloween. My guess is his gf's sorority will have some kind of party like they did last year. He didn't trick or treat after age 11; his choice. He likes scary movies but I seriously doubt you'd get him in a haunted house (esp since some of ours, like the old Lemp Mansion, are known to be truly haunted!).

My DD has always loved dressing up for Halloween--she's 22 & a college grad and I'm sure she'll still find some excuse to dress up, like a party or going out to some bar somewhere.

When my kids were teens, they always dressed up, someone always had a party, and they hit the haunted houses with their friends. They still do. Lolo is beginning her 3rd trimester, so they're having a party at home. Last I heard, she was thinking about being a pg Wilma Flintstone!

Ah, a wonderful holiday that brings back lots of good memories of the girls growing up.

A special day for them also because it was the Halloween dance where they started hanging with

My girls always liked Halloween. I'm not sure what #2 (22) is doing with her 2yo because they just moved into a low-income apartment place and she dosen't know many neighbors yet. I'm sure there will be plenty of community events

Just took DS to the costume store--he & his BFF (a girl) are going to a party as penguins.

My 16 year old has always liked Halloween. Last year was the first year she didn't trick-r-treat because her BFF's mom said she was too old for it. This year she'll have to work on Halloween. There is a party at the school, though she's not going as she has a photography shoot. She mentioned another party, but it will depend on when it is if she goes or not. She's not too much into scary movies or haunted houses at all.
