What was—or is—your all-time favourite Halloween treat?

You might be able to tell simply by paying attention to what you buy this year, since a good portion of adults actually choose the treats they hand out based on their personal favourites. (We don’t, after all, want to be left eating treats we don’t like, should the little ones not show up, right?)

Or check out our list below to jog your memory. And if we haven’t included one of your all-time faves, just let us know!

Best Reasons to Love Fall in Canada

The end of summer is a sad time – farewell to warm sun, blue skies, and bare feet. Many Canadians wait all year for the summer months, and quick as a flash, it’s over. But don’t worry! Before winter descends, we’ve got fall – the most beautiful, colourful season of them all. There’s lots to look forward to – here are our favourites.

Whether it’s a pumpkin-spice something or a steaming cup of chai, hot drinks are everything in the fall.

5 On-Trend Costumes Ideas for Halloween 2015

Inside Out

Pixar is brilliant at creating adorable characters than children want to emulate. But Inside Out is going to be great fun for adults too! Get a crew together to represent Joy, Sadness, and Disgust (and Anger and Fear too!). There are makeup tutorials available here.

Taylor Swift with her squad

Being the year of Taylor Swift, it’s inevitable that there will be countless Taylor Swift costumes out there. But this one is extra fun. Once you’ve got your sparkly dress and high heels and red lipstick, attach a bunch of dolls to your belt to represent your squad (you can even add a Ken-doll Calvin Harris!).

#thedress

It’s been a while since the internet was swept with #thedress, but it won’t take much for people to be reminded. Was it black and blue or white and gold? Find two dresses and sew them together (half and half!) or make it a partner costume, each representing one version. You can also go all-out and order this one online.

Emojis

Emoji Halloween Costume
Emojis have been a popular Halloween costume for awhile, but with the new keyboard being released on iOS this year, there are plenty more to impersonate! Get a group of girls with multiple colours of hair & skin to wear pink shirts and represent the sassy girl emoji, or rep the costume classics – the salsa dancer and the twinning girls.

Donald Trump

This is an easy one. All you need is a suit, a red tie, and some really bad hair.
