    familyman357 I'd be more cynical, but my apathy prevents it.

    Even some old folks go crazy with Halloween, this is within a few block of my house, shot in Daytime, and before Sun rise in early am.

    Little too many inflatables, and we get no kids knock our door.

    Halloween is not a big deal for me. When my kiddos were younger I had reservations about them collecting candy from strangers. Guess I’m a bit paranoid.

    I’ll be at work this year. First Halloween night shift in many years. I only ever got 2 groups of kids twice each time. They got a lot of candy!

    god bless you. I feel for you, sincerely. the gulf has been hammered this year. I hope all is well.

    I am going to a small party w/ friends this year. My gal's kids are supposed to be going out w/ baby daddy. she and I both know this is probably another last minute cancel / excuse. so we may have them.

    I am a relatively new homeowner, last year I worked Halloween. I think next year if I am off duty I will actually get candy for the little ones. I live on a good street, with plenty of kids. I think it will be fun.

    I can tell you what I am NOT doing this year, and that is working Halloween. This is through no planning of my own it is just my scheduled weekend off. But it is also 1. a saturday, 2. halloween, 3. a full moon, 4. the night the clocks roll back (hello unpaid now 13hr shift) and 5. NUMEROUS parties planned at all of our... ehm... "clubs." yeah I feel for that shift, but GLAD I ain't working!!!

    Took the kid trick or treating. Neighborhood is mostly older residents/retirees so not never has been a whole lot of people participating. Was about 50/50 people putting out a bucket of candy and people sitting on their porch with the candy on a table nearby. A few people handing it out.

    Think there were more people out with their kids than there was last year. Before COVID a lot of people were too paranoid about someone tampering with the candy to let their kids go trick or treating. Guess everyone's bored this year.

    Know a few people having parties this weekend but I'll be working.

    The treat bucket will be on the front porch. We'll be hanging with friends on our driveway, fire pit going, saying hello to passersby. Almost identical to last year, except we gave candy hand-to-hand last year.

    Would it be wrong to drive around and hurl candy at costumed trick or treaters?

    Asking for a fiend...

    We haven't any Trick-or-Treaters since we moved upriver after Katrina.
    Pretty sure there won't be any this year.

    Will gum-balls fire out of a paint-ball gun?

    Asking for that same friend.

    I did not participate myself but the general gist of it was to design a "mini golf hole" at your house. Drinking had something to do with scoring the hole. Though, like most drinking games, everybody was drinking anyway. Play a hole, move to the next house. Sort of a neighborhood mixer.

    On the other hand, your local dentist is encouraging everybody to give out copious amounts of candy.

    No one is willing to climb this long winding driveway from the highway to our house for a candy bar. I have never had anyone knock on our door at Halloween. House Close.jpg

    We’re handing out candy this year. I’m thinking of wearing a costume.

    Hazmat suit and full face respirator ought to generate some laughs.

    I'm pretty sure this will be my 22nd year of living here with no trick or treaters.

    LOL, hell, why stop there? Just quit living, man. No use going on if you live in a damned bubble.
