    Cool Trick or Treaters

    We live on a tucked away cud-de-sac so where only 2 of 5 houses give out candy. So to get the kids over to our house over the last 8 years I've been bribing them and it's worked.

    we have tons of kids come into our subdivision from all over! I usually end up running out of candy before the night is over. I try to ration it, I really do, but some of the costumes are just so cute I have to give them extra! The teenagers (15 or older looking) only get 1 piece of the least popular candy!!!

    Living on the edge of a large city we get bus loads of kids coming out from the inner city to trick or tread where it is safe. You can't blame them but we have our own neighborhood to think about. Instead, for the last few years we have had a 'neighborhood trick or treat on the Sat. eve. before the citywide one on Sun. afternoon. Last night we had 250 pieces of candy and ran out. I think the word is getting to the inner city that the best place to trick or treat is out here.

    I love the teenagers. Heck I don't care what age they are as long as they're dressed up and say Trick or Treat. I'll give an extra to the ones that really went out of their way to dress up too.

    @BruceP, 250 kids. Good gawd that's a lot. I can't blame the inner city kids either.

    Oh now I know what you're talkin about--those monster pops look cute 'n yummy! My next door neighbor said she ran out of candy last year so I'm anticipating lots of kids. Hopefully I got more than enough candy!

    we don't have many anymore. Most of the kids in the neighborhood have grown up and left. But we always gave out full size treats. My boys would tell me what was in and to Sam's Club for the bulk.

    Always with me

    We get none..NADA.ZERO!!! But we live without sidewalks and street lights and with bears, and mountain lions...sooooo we go to one of our daughter's houses and enjoy the treaters!!! They both get about 200 each year! I love the older kids too! As long as they have a costume on..they are golden!

    When Aaron was 4 we lived in Midland TX (far west Texas) and I went all out!

    Dressed as a witch, sat in a rocker on the front porch in dim light, candles & pumpkins
    all around.

    The problem was...I did TOO GOOD a job with my makeup...the kids were too scared to
    come up and get their candy...I ended up being lonely...that has never happened before
    or after that Halloween!

    Poor lil' Aaron, he wouldn't even come near Mom...just cried


    My 1st bully, Brutus
    RIP beloved boy.
