Will you pass out candy this Halloween?
« on: October 28, 2017, 10:42:53 pm »
I will not be doing this because over the years, there have been stories on the news about kid's finding things, such as needles in their candies. Things are not the same as they were years ago when we were trick or treating.

I live on a rural road in the country where the speed limit past my house is 45.  No one trick or treats on my road.  Some people put Halloween decorations in their yard on my road which seems like a waste of time if they are trying to let people know they are participating in Halloween.

I always have my favorite candy on hand - Reese's Cups - just in case we do get any trick-or-treaters.  Never do but I am prepared!  Living up a one lane dead end country hollow road, we don't get much vehicle traffic much less foot traffic.
Have a wonderful day!

Probably not passing out candy this year. Large assorted bags of candy are kind of pricey! We set out a large bowl in the front yard last year while we were out enjoying the Halloween parade downtown.  :pumpkin: :pumpkin: :pumpkin:

No, there have been rumors online about kids finding needles in candy.  And rumors from gossiping people.  But as for an actual police report and a real news story where this has happened - NO.  Never seen it.  Kind of like last year when they were saying people were passing out candy laced with drugs.  FYI - no druggie is going to hand out their stash to kids in candy.  Just sayin'

And NO I don't participate in Halloween.

No kidding.  $20 for a bag of candy?  That is ridiculous!  I buy candy for the family but that is it.

I will be at church on Halloween night, but we don't call it halloween, its Hallelujah night, we don't worship a night that celebrates wearing costumes or the devil.

I will be passing out candy this year.... it will be on a Tuesday, so we generally get less kids during the week.
I'm going to set a bowl of candy out on the porch with some signs...   I'm figuring on just a handful of kids.

Candy has gotten expensive, I got a bag of assorted chocolate bars/M&M at Costco for $16.99 with 150 pieces.  Seems two years ago the same package was a lot cheaper.

Costco had another bag of assorted chocolate pieces, mini version like 5lb for $15.99... but the chocolate "bars" were so small, like a large dice... like snickers & milky ways brands.  When did chocolate minis get so small... pricey & small

I have dusk to dawn lights on my house that automatically stay on, so I figure I'll just leave a bowl of candy out there for late candy seeking stragglers instead of turning them off.

We always buy a bag of candy that we enjoy.  There are still a few small kids on our street so if they come I'll have something to hand out.  But they haven't come the last couple of years.  I believe most of them go to school or church carnivals but I will be prepared just in case.   Once it gets dark my light goes off.   I do miss the days of lots of trick or treaters but I'm not sure I'd let my child go if he were still young.  Such a shame, it was always such a fun holiday for kids.

I will try it this year because I now live in a neighborhood so we'll see - for the last several years lived in a rural area and we never got anyone trick or treating.  So again we'll see   :cat:
