Halloween pranks and tricks

Want to have fun or create a good scare? Halloween is not only for treats, it is for tricks too.
Funny or not, these focus on pranks that are not destructive to anyone’s property or well-being.
* Dress up as though you are the inanimate Halloween décor for your lawn. This could be a scarecrow or Frankenstein. Be as still as you can. When someone walks by, jump out and scare them. Another idea is to lay flat on the lawn, pretending to be in a grave marked with a tombstone. Imagine their surprise when you rise from the dead.
* Ring doorbell and say “canned goods or meat”.
* Get dressed up, knock on door. When person answers, put candy into his bowl.
* Visit friends’ houses and write on the mirror with your finger, delivering a scary message such as “I’m watching you!”. Breathe on the mirror and you can see your words. Let it dry naturally. When your friend takes a shower, the words will appear again when the mirror fogs up.
* Get dressed up so you are unrecognisable. Join a group of trick-or-treaters, preferably some you know. It will drive them nuts not knowing who you are.
* Decorate your yard with all things superstitious. Ladder, black cat, broken mirror and crows. Put the number 13 on your door.
* Dress up in a hospital gown and walk around at night saying “They think I’m crazy, but I’m not. They deserved to die. They can’t take me”.
* Dress up, ring doorbell. When someone answers, say “pull my finger”.
* Traditional, ring doorbell and run.
* Gather everyone’s Jack-O-Lanterns and line them up on the pavement.

Party pranks
Before guests are to arrive at your Halloween party, have someone dress up and discretely “haunt” the route your guests will take to get to your house. Later on, tell a “true” story about how someone died a horrific death and the ghost haunts the vicinity.
At your party, keep a cooler on hand for beverages. Put in fake spiders and insects near the bottom. Someone will discover it sooner or later.
When serving food at your Halloween party, add a set of fake fangs to the serving bowl.
