I am not sure if others do this but, years ago, when I had a house, I used to remove the lower window from my screen door and hand the candy out through the opening. It was easier than reaching around and it kept the little ones from trying to come completely into the house.

I also used to pass out shots of peppermint schnapps, in plastic cups, to the moms and dads that stood hiding in the bushes. Just the ones I knew from my street!

that's awesome, bea, to think of the parents.

in contrast, i often want to tell the parents who carry infants up to my door to go take a hike. their kid doesn't have teeth nor can comprehend halloween, so why are they truck or treating?

I agree!! I didn't take my girls out till they could walk, chew and say "Trick or Treat"!! I have passed comments to those parents but just got a chuckle from them because they were in a group with 1 or 2 older kids..

I am talking about parents with babies that are WALKING around and come to my house with OTHER kids NOT theirs.
