When I was a kid, nothing except opening Christmas presents held more excitement for me than the Highlandtown Halloween Parade. An endless procession marched, crept or slithered up Eastern Avenue from what was then called City Hospitals to what is still called Patterson Park. There, on a high wooden platform, four masked men passed judgment on the weird gathering below, handing out 10-dollar bills to the kids wearing the most unusual costumes.If those costume parades held a few thrills for me, they held much more for Tony Jacobs.

Last time, we asked: Should Halloween be observed on the last Saturday of October? Some people think so. When Oct. 31 falls on a weekday, children and parents must squeeze trick-or-treating and festivities in after school and work, often after dark, raising a safety issue. Celebrating on Saturday would allow earlier trick-or-treating and give families time to schedule other Halloween events, such as parties. What do you think?I definitely don't think that they should switch it to the last Saturday.

"Candy corn is the only candy in the history of America that's never been advertised. And there's a reason. All of the candy corn that was ever made was made in 1911." - Comedian Lewis Black Nice try, but that's wrong. Candy corn happened to have been first mass-produced by the Goelitz Candy Co. in 1898. So, technically, all the candy corn ever made dates back to 1898 and not 1911. Wednesday is Halloween, and the candy corn debate once again has raised its ugly cone head. Tomorrow, by the way, is National Candy Corn Day. Some get chills just thinking about it. More than ever in its history, candy corn has needed - no, deserved - a proper defense.

For the past five years, Halloween has brought terror by the trainload to Harford countians who have dared to ride the historic Stewartstown Railroad during this haunted season.It is a time of year when ghouls, goblins, ghosts and other gruesome creatures lurk along the tracks and even on board as the train slowly makes its four-mile nightmare journey through Deer Creek Valley, just north of the Maryland line.The train leaves from Stewartstown, Pa., and travels to Orwig's Summit, not far from Shrewsbury.

We're looking for "high-concept" Halloween costumes - ones that are more abstract than literal. Dressing like a "Freudian slip" or as "static cling," for instance, takes a bit more imagination than going as an M&M. Think more in terms of ideas or states of mind than the usual ghosts, goblins and politicians. The most clever costumes will be considered for inclusion in an article in The Sun's Modern Life section. E-mail jpg photos - with your name, phone number and a brief explanation of your costume - to sun.features@baltsun.

It's not exactly "Night of the Living Dead" or anything, but in addition to the usual Halloween-themed series episodes tonight, there's a prime-time guest appearance by Phyllis Diller.* "Family Matters" (8-8:30 p.m., Channel 13) -- The trick, in this Halloween episode, is that most of it takes place as a vampire story, with the Winslow parents as vampires and Urkel (Jaleel White) as a castle guest in danger of joining the undead. An eternal Urkel? Now THAT'S scary, boys and girls. ABC.* "Tales From the Crypt" (8-9 p.m., Channel 45)
