    1. Give away something other than candy. (Toothpicks, golf balls,
    bags of sand, etc.)

    2. Wait behind the door until some people come. When they get
    near the door, jump out, wearing a costume, and holding a bag,
    and yell, "Trick or Treat!" Look at them, scratch your head, and
    act confused.

    3. Fill a briefcase with marbles and crackers. Write on it, "Top
    Secret" in big letters. When trick-or-treaters come, look around
    suspiciously, say, "It's about time you got here," give them the
    briefcase, and quickly shut the door.

    4. Get about 30 people to wait in your living room. When
    trick-or-treaters come to the door, say, "Come in." When they do,
    have everyone yell, "Surprise!!!" Act like it's a surprise party.

    5. Get everyone who comes to the door to come in and see if they
    can figure out what's wrong with your dishwasher. Insist that it
    makes an unnatural "whirring" sound.

    6. After you give them candy, hand the trick-or-treaters a bill.

    7. Open the door dressed as a giant fish. Immediately collapse,
    and don't move or say anything until the trick-or-treaters go
    away.

    8. When you answer the door, hold up one candy bar, throw it out
    into the street, and yell, "Crawl for it!"

    9. When you answer the door, look at the trick-or-treaters, act
    shocked and scared, and start screaming your head off. Slam the
    door and runaround the house, screaming until they go away.

    10. Insist that the trick-or-treaters each do ten push-ups before
    you give them any candy.

    11. Hand out menus to the trick-or-treaters and let them order
    their candy. Keep asking if anyone wants to see the wine list.

    12. Get a catapult. Sit on your porch and catapult pumpkins at
    anyone who comes within 50 yards of your house.

    13. When people come to the door, jump out a nearby window,
    crashing through the glass, and run as far away from your house
    as you can.

    14. Answer the door dressed as a pilgrim. Stare at the
    trick-or-treaters for a moment, pretend to be confused, and start
    flipping through a calendar.

    15. Instead of candy, give away colored eggs. If anyone protests,
    explain that the eggs are the only thing you had left over from
    Easter.

    16. Answer the door dressed as a dentist. Angrily give the
    trick-or-treaters a two-hour lecture on tooth decay.

    17. Answer the door with a mouthful of M & M's and several
    half-eaten candy bars in your hands. Act surprised, and close the
    door. Open it again in a few seconds, and insist that you don't
    have any candy.

    18. Hand out cigarettes and bottles of aspirin.

    19. Put a crown on a pumpkin and put the pumpkin on a throne on
    your porch. Insist that all of the trick-or-treaters bow before
    the pumpkin.

    20. Dress up like a bunny rabbit. Yell and curse from the moment
    you open the door, and angrily throw the candy at the
    trick-or-treaters. Slam the door when you're finished.

    A couple times I got a tray with whole carrots, onions, potatoes and broccoli on it.

    When the kids rang the bell, I would hold the tray out and tell them to pick their favorite.

    It was great to watch the reaction before reaching for the candy bow; with the other hand.

    i remember a time when you could have gotten away with that. they may have thought you a little odd, but that's as far as it would have gone. now, 15 minutes after you started, there would squad cars in front of your door, and two smiling guys with the long armed canvas jacket hidden behind them. its not fun anymore.

    Bill Powell, boooo! They're coming to your house, treat them how you want. If they feel comfortable enough to walk up your driveway and ask for candy something has already gone horribly wrong.;f ;a

    when i was a kid it was simple, and totally spontaneous terroristic threats, and fun. treats, or we screw up your house. now it's not even that, it has been reduced to simple begging, mama forms combat squads, and they map out the streets known to produce best, and away they go. we did not do a lot of tricking or treating, cause the houses were close if they were half a mile apart, but we did some. one night my older brother and cousin moved my great uncle's outhouse two paces further down the trail. cute, simple things like that.

    We have actually done the Pumpkin king thing. Man oh man, we made this one mom MAD doing that. She apparently was a Baptist, and assumed we were making her children "worship" an idol. I told her to bug off, but gave her kid a lot of candy.

    If you're like me and you HATE Halloween, here's a neat little "trick" to play on the kiddies. Mind you, you HAVE to live in a warm invironment for this to work.

    Keep a mini-fridge near the front door w/ a bowl full of ice cubes. After dark, start answering the door with the bowl (a dark, solid color co it cannot be seen through) high. The kiddies hold out bags, and are rewarded with several solid "thumps" in their bag. Since it's reletively dark ('ya know, "mood lighting"), and they can't see inside the bowl, the greedy little heathens think you just dropped a few goodies in thier bag.

    Several blocks later however.......


    Buh-Hahahahahahahhaa! Just hope they don't have paper bags! ;)
