Patriots Halloween Memories

New England Patriots Halloween Memories

The thing that makes Halloween such a popular holiday is how it means something different to everyone, young and old. Everyone has their own way of celebrating the final day of October, creating a unique costume or tradition to enjoy Halloween with their friends and family. The Patriots players share in this tradition, possessing countless Halloween stories from their childhoods and creating new traditions with their families. Below is a sampling of some of the Patriots' favorite costumes and their Halloween anecdotes.

!

DL Dan Klecko - Costume: His father, Joe Klecko
"I would go out as a football player, more specifically as my dad. They used to make his jerseys back in the '80s, so I would put one of those on and be him every Halloween. That was pretty much my only costume as a kid."
"

TE Christian Fauria - Truck Driver
"I wasn't really into dressing up. I would just put on a hat and pretend to be a truck driver and I'd come back with pillowcases full of candy. I was more about the act of getting candy, so the costume didn't really matter. It was more important to be able to sprint from house to house than how impressed people were with my costume. I would ask, 'What's the most important thing about this situation?' The candy."

FB Fred McCrary - Jason from 'Friday the 13th'
"My most memorable costume was the Jason mask. I would wear ripped up clothes with a fake knife and squirt fake blood all over the place."
"

S Rodney Harrison - Superman
"When I was a kid, I used to go around on Halloween and tap on people's windows. They would come to see what it was and I would have a mask on and they'd be scared half to death. One time I did that, a guy went and grabbed a knife and chased me outside the house. I was about 13 years old and I was screaming."
!

RB Antowain Smith - The Incredible Hulk
"My favorite Halloween costume from back in the day was the Incredible Hulk. I wore that when I was about seven or eight years old. I had the whole get-up with the green mask. My kids are more into Sponge Bob, Bob the Builder and characters like that. It's a new generation."
"

G Damien Woody - Batman
"I enjoyed going out with my friends and doing the traditional trick-or-treat thing. Candy was a big thing back then and even though I still love sweets now, I was an even bigger fan back then. That was definitely a fun holiday to look forward to. Nowadays, Halloween is a great time to spend with my kids, and they like all the Disney characters. I have all girls, so they like all the princesses like Cinderella and Snow White. My family and I always get a big kick out of it."
