14 Halloween memories that all children who grew up in the 90s have

Aside from the severe bellyache on the 1st of November.

1. Wearing this out as a costume.

2. At the end of the night, 60% of the sweets in your bag were drumstick lollies.

3. Nearly choking to death while bobbing for apples.

This was not a fun game. Kids nowadays are lucky that they probably just play an iPad version of this rather than sticking their faces into bowls of water.

4. Either being filled with total fear or absolute joy at the sight of this image.

5. The Halloween Céilí at school.

Because what’s more fun than Irish dancing in a Halloween costume that barely stays together when you’re standing still? The influence of the Disney Channel on Irish society means that many schools are now referring to these events as ‘dance-a-thons’ and the kids aren’t even forced to do a two hand reel anymore.

6. Making these in art the week before Halloween.

7. Or maybe one of these.

For the next five months of playing football in your local field, you’re going to come home smelling like burnt tires.

9. Trying to lift one of your mates up like they did in The Craft.

11. Seeing what would happen if you held several sparklers together and lit them at once.

12. Feeling incredibly insulted when a neighbour gave you monkey nuts and oranges.

Does anyone actually enjoy these?

14. Or worse – fruit.

We’d rather you just turned the lights off and didn’t answer the door.
