Are You Passing Out Candy On Halloween?

I sure am!

I LOVE Halloween,
it’s my favorite next to Christmas and Thanksgiving…
What’s better than food, candy AND adult beverages? (I was considering offering a special drink for Mom & Dad this year )

I was reading recently about a new project

https://www.foodallergy.org/educatio...umpkin-project

We surely will be participating in this!

I have a Teal Colored Pumpkin out front of our home along with the regulation squash to indicate that we will be handing out Allergy-free and Nut-ful candies to all!

In addition, I always have a cooler full of Mini Water Bottles for those thirsty Trick-O-Treaters… it’s hard work out there dontcha know!

How will you be Trick-O-Treating this year?

Nobody door-to-door trick-or-treats anymore, at least in my area. They all go to the mall. I'd be stuck with a bunch of candy I don't need to eat.

I am usually in Vegas on Halloween, at the SEMA Show. I couldn't make it this year. I may go out to a bar and look at the adults who dress up.

Yes, under duress.

You and Himself would make a lovely couple, K-Girl. He LOVES handing the stuff out! I guess I'm so over it from all the years I did it back home, being rescued in the last 15 minutes when he would finally get home from work. At least we knew a lot of the kids that came around in the old neighborhood, and were pretty sure most of them were from our rather large development. Now? We probably have less than two dozen kids on our street of 30 houses that are too young to drive - and probably only a dozen 10 or younger. However, we Himself will be passing out the treats, all 580 items - a mix of chocolate candies like M&Ms and Snickers, etc; candy kids love (I don't know why) like Nerds and Laffy Taffy; and mini bags of Snyders pretzels (always a big hit and the first to go). A neighbor up the street has done a headcount each year, then posts the number on Facebook. I'll check back with you when he checks in with the final tally.

Personally, I'd rather turn all the lights out and use the $40 (yes, $40) for a nice dinner at O'Connor's. I get my way about once every five years.

I love it!
When we lived in Kaneohe and I was "too old' I would 'Treat-o-treat for Unicef' in a costume that I always made.
In our previous neighborhood, no kids ... I was so sad!
Now, I can't wait for all the kiddos !!!

I give to Salvation Army, too. My Dad said they were the one group that really helped the servicemen during WWII, even more than the Red Cross liked to brag about how much they did. He said no matter how small an amount, I should never pass a bell ringer without putting a little something in the red kettle. As soon as they show up in front of stores, I fold up a bunch of singles and slip them into a quick-access part of my purse. Then, when I'm ready to leave the car, I put a folded dollar into the palm of my hand inside my glove, then slip the glove off and quickly slid the dollar into the slot before my hand gets chapped! (My skin chaps when the temps drop below 50 degrees F)
