3. Carve Monet's Haystacks into a pumpkin because Martha Stewart told you to.

7. Give out "healthy treats," like raisins and tangerines. In a few years the recipients will return, armed with toilet paper and eggs, to have their righteous revenge.

8. Serve guests drinks with aggressively festive names like "Witch's Tit."

18. Give trick-or-treaters last year's Halloween candy.

19. Forget that anything that tastes like fruit punch with a kick will leave you with a hangover for the next three days.

20. Convince yourself that dude-dressed-as-your-favorite-literary-character is your soulmate.

24. Go home with the Pete Doherty-look-alike unless you're sure his strung-out, greasy look is indeed just part of the costume.

25. Eat anything that may have masqueraded as monster brains an hour ago.
