    Halloween, for me, is simply handing out candy. Which, I won't be doing this year.

    Anybody else?

    Luckily no trick-or-treaters use our neighborhood. All properties are an acre or greater, so too much walking I guess.

    in our neighborhood, we have lots of young families with kids. We also have great communication within the neighborhood and the consensus is that most will be putting a bucket of candy outside for the kiddos, and so will we. I am well stocked. I cannot stand to see a kid walk away disappointed.

    Even if there were a zombie apocalypse on halloween, I would have candy for the kiddos.

    I'm passing. I was surprised that wife was will to pass on it. We're going to her sister's house for a few hours to do a little "immediate family" only Halloween thing. Luckily, I have to leave early and miss more of it. Boom!

    I won't deprive kids of Halloween over this.

    *Nobody was scared of the flu in prior years
    *Kids wearing masks anyway
    *Census was able to knock on my door
    *MSM and the left encouraged protests/riots
    *mail still being delivered

    Kids can have their damn Halloween

    Jury is still out, at our house.

    My wife bought some candy, but, we won't be leaving candy in a bucket, on the porch, as some have suggested.

    With some of the sphincter muscle kids that now roam our neighborhood, one kid would take the whole bucket.

    Our neighborhood has really gone downhill.

    I always give out candy to the trick-or-treaters, but this year I won't be here to do it because our agency's Halloween party is actually on Halloween this year. We always have it on the closest weekend to Halloween.

    Maybe I will just leave a basket of candy by the front door and a sign to take only one.

    Nope. Probably won't be a lot of kids out there anyhow. This whole year has been a real downer, just waiting for 2021 at this point.

    I don't normally do much for Halloween. I will this year though. I'm going to decorate the front part of the property and set up a fire pit at the end of the driveway and hand out candy and maybe some adult beverages to the adult neighbors.

    It's not been a great year in many aspects, (not just Covid). I'm not much on Halloween but I'd like to do some nice for the neighbors and the local kids.

    Just about everything has been postponed by Covid 19 and preparing for hurricanes here in South Louisiana. We’re way out in the country and have never had a trick or treater come to our door. We always have a few treats around on Halloween just in case, but end up eating them all before Thanksgiving...

    We will be handling out candy. We usually only get about 20-30 kids. I expect even less this year.

    Business as usual around here. Lots of candy on hand and a lot of hungry ToTs to provide for.

    We usually don't get many, but we've got some good stuff for any that do show up!

    I get drunk, and throw Baby Ruth's at random passers by. Yelling something about smelling my feet.

    Seems to work.

    Would probably work better if I did it on the right day, though.

    Moved here last year and bought bunch of candy for halloween and no one came lol. Although a small town I do live on one of the main streets. I guess locally kids go to the edges of town in the newer developments. I will have some just in case.

    I’m not participating either, been wearing a mask and eating candy for the last 7 months.
