My grampa used to fill beautifully decorated little bags with baby onions, garlic, and chunks of Limburger cheese, then staple them and hand them out to trick or treaters. Gramma was always appalled, she had candy to give out. Grampa really got a kick out of it, he would love this idea.

That sounds like something my dad would have done back in the day.
I enjoy the little ghosts and goblins, even the bigger ones as long as they're polite. But after a couple of hours at the most, the lights go out and I'm done answering the door.

For years, our little neighborhood didn't have any kids. Now we have a lot.

My grampa had a really nasty sense of humor, but it cracks me up now. He's long gone.

I usually get too much candy, then need to dispose of it myself.

The candied onions are a funny idea but parents don't usually accept handmade treats anymore for fear of tampering from psychos.

Our neighborhood would be fine, everyone knows each other, but I think it would be a dirty trick. In town, maybe not so much.

I just buy the little bags of pre-wrapped candies, fortunately I'm not a fan of most of them. I won't buy Reese's peanut butter cups though, I can't stay away from those.

I try to buy candy I don't like, but somehow Snickers and Reeses PB cups make it into my cart.

I wish I still lived where kids would come in my other life. I would dress up my darling little Maltese dog in her pink ballerina outfit with pink ribbons on her ankles and she'd dance on her back legs for the kids when they came to the door. What a girl she was!!

I miss Halloween back in my little home town of Kaneohe.
It was a neighborhood consisting of three generations and we all knew one another. Each home had grandparents, parents and kids.
As a grown up, I would make a costume each year and our GSD, Vito and I would sit out in the front yard and wait for the kids. My husband almost always had night shift and could come out and play with us. Vito loved all the kids, he thought they were all 'his kids' and was very protective of them and they all loved him right back.

Shrek will be answering the door and handing out the candy, I'll be at work in my Minion Costume, passing out pills.
