The AMT team talks Halloween and Autumn!



5 minute read

 
 

Here in southern Illinois, it’s getting frosty. Sure, we’ll have a few more warm-ish days, but once you wake up to a car scraping morning, you can count on full-on autumn. And here at AM Transport we love fall. Each year, we celebrate October with a big Halloween party replete with costumes, food, beverages, and lots of dancing.

With the leaves turning red, yellow, orange, and purple, and the mums in full bloom, I asked the folks here a few questions about their favorite fall memories, candies, and Halloween costumes.  Here’s what I found out!

 

Laura Matthews

 

Your favorite Halloween costume ever?

When I was a kid, I loved the time I dressed up as an 80s punk rocker with crimped hair. As a parent, I loved when my kids dressed up as Rapunzel and Pascal.

 

Your favorite Halloween candy?

Reese’s Pumpkin or 100 Grand

 

Do you have a favorite Halloween movie?

Hocus Pocus

 

What about a favorite Halloween memory?

When I was a kid, we would trick-or-treat in both my grandparents’ neighborhoods, and then some other relatives. I loved going to my Grandma and Grandpa Kocher’s house. They were always in their chairs and they’d invite every trick-or-treater in to see their costume and talk to them. They had goody bags of candy and goody bags of coins already prepared. The grandkids and the special neighbors and visitors always got the coins as well as the candy. They also had a clipboard to keep track of who they saw and how many trick-or-treaters they had each year. Probably so they could prepare the goody bags the next year.
