Ahhh - but you see, that's what makes our Halloween SO relaxing. In the 11 years we've lived here, we've had a grand total of ONE trick-or-treater - lol!!! So all our decorating & pumpkin-carving, etc., is just for our own enjoyment.
Let's face it. I live at the very end of a long, dark, rural dirt/gravel road surrounded by woods with only two houses on it. And our immediate neighborhood doesn't have any small children.
We do buy a bag of candy (obviously something we both don't mind eating ourselves) every year "just in case", but it still ends up a fun cozy "horror movie" night at home for just the two of us. Can't wait!!
