TBT: The 21 Things Every Kid Hated About Halloween Growing Up

Tyler Gildin

It’s officially October, and you know what that means: Halloween is coming!  Halloween — the classic American holiday when we dress up like idiots running around from door to door, asking complete strangers for candy — was a major part of most of our childhoods.

But as much as we loved Halloween growing up, there were plenty of things we didn’t like, too! Whether it was our parents’ rules, our unfriendly neighbors or the costumes we chose, we always found something to complain about on what should have been the happiest day of the year.

Here are 20 things we hated about Halloween as a kid:

When you came across that one house that gave out apples


When your parents would take away some of your candy


When the older kids would throw eggs at you


When your parents made you take 100 pictures in your costume


When your parents insisted on coming trick-or-treating with you


 When you got sick from eating too much candy too fast


When you saw someone wearing the same costume as you


When your parents made you take your awkward cousin trick-or-treating with you


When your friends made you watch scary movies


When it would rain and you couldn’t go trick-or-treating


When you rang a neighbor’s doorbell and got attacked by their dog


When you rang a doorbell and they ran out of candy


When you were convinced your creepy neighbor was actually a witch


 

When your parents bought you the most embarrassing costumes


When you couldn’t eat candy that year because you had braces


When you had to be home early because your friend had a curfew


When your bag of candy broke and you lost everything


When people didn’t answer their doors


When your friends made fun of you for being scared of a haunted house


When you didn’t know how much to take when someone just left a candy bowl outside


When no one came trick-or-treating at your house


Bonus:

When you were scared to go trick-or-treating because you thought you’d see more dead people everywhere

What? Just Haley Joel Osment?
