I totally get it. We are semi rural and don't have a lot of kids around here anymore. Being a big kid myself when it comes to Halloween, I almost wish we had more kids in the 'hood.

We don't get trick or treaters at home, but there are three local schools that come through the facility so the residents can hand out candy. It is great fun for everyone and I always volunteer to run candy for the residents.

No trick or treaters here, but I do like to decorate with fall colors.

When I was in MN, my dad went to the base in Grand Forks. He brought back a couple of bags of "snack" size Snickers and Mint 3-Muskateer bars for H'ween. I kept finding the candy bars under the sink--my "squirrel" mom puts the weirdest things under the sink. And, they don't have any trick or treaters who come by.

When I was a kid, my mom would give away OUR hard earned candy to later trick or treaters as we lived on a busy street and she would run out of candy. She also squirreled away the chocolate.

We always put the peanut butter cups on the bottom of the bowl

When I was very young we lived out in the sticks and we only went to three or four houses for trick or treat. I always will remember one elderly farm couple we went to every year. The dining room table was covered with homemade doughnuts and cider, popcorn balls, polished apples, cookies and homemade candies. We always left with full stomachs and full sacks. Today if you did it the parents would throw out the food and call in a police SWAT team to haul you in for questioning. Different times.
