Halloween was the greatest holiday of the year when you were under 10. Well, until these things happened.

1. Halloween was on a Sunday.

Some homes didn't like monster and ghouls showing up on the holy day. This happened in 1971, 1976, 1982, 1993, 1999, 2004 and 2010.

7. Blizzard hits on Halloween.

It happened in 2011 and 1991. Unlike rain, it takes a few days for the dog sleds to get through. On the upshot, if you have a dog sled you get first dibs.
