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
