We don't do Halloween, but back in the day when my daughter was little, I dressed up and went with her.  I don't trust strangers, so we got double amount of candy.  lol

We went to someone's door, and the man gave her and me both a pamphlet and told us both to give to our mothers. He was someone running for a political office of some kind.  It took everything to keep from laughing in his face, because I WAS a parent.  He thought I was an older kid.  lol.

But since we were having a dinner at my parents house afterward, I gave my mother the flyer, and told her the man said to give it to my mother.  lol

I did it to be funny, and she just cracked up.

That was the last time I ever went.

When I was in K-2 we had Halloween parties that we dressed up for. We also got bags of candy to take home. I think we even had a pizza party in the 3rd grade when I changed schools. I remember my mother taking me to a halloween party when I was 9 or 10 at a rec center where we had candy, food and bobbed for apples. However the last celebration of any kind I had participated in was when I was in 8th grade. I haven't celebrated Halloween since.

I would say I stopped at the age of 17 put I had my little girl when i was 20 and now that she is almost 2 we are up and going again  ;D she is so excited to go out this year, I find it so cute and funny because she doesn't even know what it is. All she know is she gets candy and that is enough for her  :heart:

I stopped probably around high school, though I didn't stop because it "wasn't cool."  I simply stopped cause I was so swamped with homework that I didn't have time to wander around my neighborhood, let alone go get a costume and such.  I barely get my pumpkin carved in time so doing that on top of everything else would be near impossible for me.

Trick or treating is for fun, I don't understand why people put so many rules in my home town you have to be back in your home not later then 8:30 pm. That is nuts i men it is a small town, what do they think is going to happen.... i don't get it  :BangHead: but it is what it is.

wow I don't even remember.  I know I dressed up once, in high school, so pretty old.  But it was a custome party at the school.  I find it amazing the prices of customes now a days. 
We live in the loop of town, so we are expecting LOTS of TRTs, we've got over 2k pieces of candy.  I actually think we will need some more.  It's fun, but also a burden.  If we don't have candy, then the kids might egg the house, etc.  Worse, I don't get home fm work in time for the whole curfew of trick or treating.  So my man is on his own for the 1st shift!

I probably stopped when I was like 21 or 22.....a little late, but oh well. I had fun. I'm pretty short for my age and I usually wore a mask so that people wouldn't be able to tell my real age and deny me the benefit of delicious candy! But now that I'm older, I don't really have an interest in it.  I can't wait to have a child because then I know I will be super into it!
