Another Halloween spent hiding!

I have just discovered that Halloween is NOW! I went yesterday to the super and have done a miriad of things this week, but it did not occur to me that I should buy some candy. The only thing left for me to do is to hide in my room with the door closed, no loud TV on, while the bell rings. Small children don´t play trick, but teens can come with eggs to throw if they don´t get what they wish. Tomorrow I have to be up very early as I have 3 strong young men that will come to help me to bring my mother´s bed to myy home. So, maybe, I will turn off the lights and sleep Halloween away. No ghosts but the ol´witch that lives in my house

I agree hide in your home and there is no need to buy candy if the kids so this to your home.

Sometimes I buy some although I rationaly think that the kids will have indigestion later on. But this year I forgot at it is for the best because it is too chilly to go out at night.

@marguicha Never knew a chilly night to stop kids from chasing after free candy.

@poehere I was thinking about my coming to the fence to give that candy.

I bought a bag of assorted candy for my niece and nephew. We hardly have any trick or treaters in this neighborhood anymore. If it was like last year, there will not be a porch light on at all on this street. The porch light signifies whether or not the residence has candy. If there is no candy the light is off.

In my neighborhood, one would think that they borrow children for Halloween. I have been listening to the bell for2 hours and I never see a kid around on normal days.

It seems like that is how it has been for many years now.

A friend of mine forgot to get candy one year and she ended up giving each child a penny, they were delighted.

Now it would need to be more like a nickel or dime rather than a penny as a penny is not worth what it once was.

The kids that ring my bell would want at least a dollar each. I think hiding is the best measure.

@marguicha & @marguicha my friend only gave pennies to the little ones who came with their parents, they didn't mind and did understand, this happened a couple years ago.

If teens come around and find that there´s a grown up, they can be mean

I live in a house so it is easy to just ring the bell

Tennagers can do the best or worst of things. They can be angels or demons

I don't see anything wrong with not giving out candy. I really hate that children resort to such childish activities for something as trivial as candy. Me? I hate having it in the house for the kids. It gives them a sugar rush and is also one extra temptation when I'm trying to get in shape.

It is a childs activity and why deprive them of the one night they can dress up and go out and ask for candy. It seems you need to have better control over your candy addiction.

I don´t care much for children to have tummy problems. But I have been subject to angry teens (who should not be asking for candy in the first place). I don´t want them to place toothpaste inside my bell.

I would not mind ifI wasn´t afraid of the tricks the teens do.

You don't sound like a person that likes Halloween, how could you forget about it at the store as they probably have plenty of Halloween candy out there.

@marguicha Same here in Europe, is an imported holiday by big food companies, but most people do not care about Halloween.

@LadyDuck Children have fun though, because they dress up.
