Candy Crowley: Hobos and Candy Corn

Editor's Note: Happy Halloween! We asked some of our favorite CNN personalities to share with us their Halloween memories. We asked them a few 'Trick or Treat' questions.... here's what they had to say:

Candy Crowley | BIO
CNN Senior Political Correspondent

Favorite Halloween costume as a kid?

Hobo. Mostly because my mother picked out some of my clothes I could destroy to look like a bum...we got a tree stick and put a bag at the end of it ..my dad stomped on one of his hats for me and put charcoal on my face. It all seemed illegal. Livin' the dream at the age of 5

Favorite scary movie?

"Hush Hush Sweet Charlotte." I only saw it once and had nightmares for years. I believe it involved a severed head bumping down the stairs.

Best Halloween memory?

When my parents let me trick or treat without them. As I recall I was about 21.

Worst Halloween memory?

When my brother's banded together, stole my candy and ate it. Fortunately, one of them got ill and the plot was revealed.

What was your favorite Halloween candy?

Candy Corn . Though Twizzlers are a close second.

    I don't know, Candy. I've always thought of you more as a tie-dyed hippie chick. Any fringe or headbands in the closet?
