    Mudah, you must live in a small town. That's such a sweet thing for them to do.

    We live on a dead-end street and it's really dark cause there are no lights. About 5 years ago, we got A LOT of kids, it sorta shocked us. So we'd always get tons of candy every year afterward.... then, suddenly..no kids. Dunno why either.

    We'll still get a whole bunch of candy so our friend's kids get buttloads...THEY love how we scoop in shovel fulls into their bags!

    Oh, I love Halloween too. The kids looks so cute all dressed up, but I usually only get 4 kids that come over, and that's because they are my nieces and nephews.

    I used to decorate outside for Halloween...lights, spooky music, etc...but haven't in a while because my kids are grown. We used to get lots and lots of treaters. Last year I kept looking out, but didn't see anyone in the neighborhood out at all.

    Guess I'll just watch Desperate Housewives.....and eat candy.

    I don't get any trick-or-treaters! I live in the country and people tend to stay in town, I wish I did though, I love seeing the little kiddies dressed up.

    It wasn't courage - it was hormones I was 6.5 months pregnant at the time and I had no tolerance for idiots. The previous owner of the house had halogen spot/sensor lights installed at each corner and peak of the house... I left those puppies burning all night long LOL
    My house was lit up like a Christmas tree they would have had to be exceptionally brave to pull something like that.

    Zero. I live in a high-rise and 99.999% of the tenants are either seniors or college students. I still buy candy, though... on Nov. 1, when it's half off.

    When I was a kid we were welcome at the condos and high rise apartment buildings - we weren't allowed to go door to door but a few of the tenants would sit in the lobby and give out pre-made bags with candy donations from the tenants.


    My favourite treat ... which would never be given out today.. was Popcorn balls!! There was a lady across the street from us that would make popcorn balls every year and she would put a sticker with her name on the baggie. I loved those popcorn balls!
    My husband comes from a town of 900 so there was never any problem with treats there - homemade or otherwise. He tells me (annually) the story of how much he loooooooooved Mrs. Salis's chocolate fudge. All of the kids beat a path to her door and some even changed costumes to get their hands on some.
    My poor husband then looks at me hesitantly and asks.. are you going to try and make fudge again this year?
    I can see in his eyes what he wants my answer to be A big fat NO
    I can't make fudge to save my life.

    Halloween is so much fun, even when you're too old to trick or treat and too young to have kiddies to escort. I made the cutest kitty-faced pumpkin last year, and then my friend and I had an all-night Buffy-thon.
    This year... drag show?

    I'm answering you since DA already knows where I live. My house is less than twenty miles from the Memphis city limits.
    I will take pictures this year and get someone who knows how, to post them. I'm afraid that they may have to stop soon though. People are bringing kids from miles around now. I liked it when it was just our little group that actually spends money there.
    One of my sons lives in our little town and they have a huge crowd of kids each year. Since he works twenty-four hour shifts, he is often not at home on halloween. My daughter in law is getting a little concerned because she has so many grown boys who come by. Our little kid will invite anyone inside. Not good. We will probably go down there and stay till about ten, then she can just turn out her interior lights and go watch tv in the dark.
