Halloween is our favorite holiday and seeing how this is the first one in our new house, we thought we would go all out and decorate. I went out and bought about a dozen different kinds of tombstones and plan on doing up the front yard like a creepy cemetery. We have two huge Ash trees that are spooky looking even in the daylight. Im hoping to use actual fire torches to give the area a nice lighting effect as well. Anyone else doing something like this?

ST, sounds like a plan. All I do is carve a pumpkin so the kids know I'm open for business. Still, every year I seem to get less and less Trick or Treaters, though my neighborhood has 170 houses, lots of kids and no through streets. I got maybe 25 kids last year. Not sure why (paranoia or fundamentalism?), as I give out the good stuff, Snickers, Reese's, Butterfingers, etc. I still enjoy it though. I'm usually stuck w/ a number of bags afterward; lucky I have a sweettooth. I would check w/ your new neighbors to see how much traffic to expect before you go to alot of trouble. I might delete the flaming torches on safety grounds though. Was there a worse candy to receive than Bit o Honey?

That sounds like good advice... thankfully, Im kind of a cheapskate when it comes to buying stuff like decorations. Most of what we are using came from the $1 store. We planned on being outside to hand out candy so we can keep an eye on the torches. I want a "wow" factor that only fire can provide! (watch for the inevitable news story on TV heh.) The only thing worse than Bit O Honey was anything home made or religious (Chick Tracts especially). The home made stuff you didnt dare to eat for several reasons...you dont know how clean those people are and who knows what could be in it? I probably wont buy candy until the actual day of Halloween to get a good price on it

My wife goes all out. Decorations, sound effects and a costume also. Scares the hell out of some kids.

I get the job of taking my son around. I agree with Brock that each year less kids come and when I go around with the boy I notice less homes giving out.

Shame when traditions start to fade.

On the bonus side, it leaves lots of chocolate for me.

Don't wait to buy your candy or all that will be left are Bit o Honeys! You don't want to get off on the wrong foot w/ kids that have alot of idle time in the summer!

Our Scout troop started a tradition five years ago of spending Halloween afternoon at a local Ronald McDonald House; the scouts bring craft materials and make masks with the kids, play some light games that sick kids can join in on -- pumpkin bingo and the like -- and generally visit with the kids and their siblings. We were asked not to bring in candy or any homemade food, so we stick to crafts and visiting and carving pumpkins. Some of the kids are very young so we also avoid the scary stuff and keep it light. One year they allowed pizza, which was popular with everyone there.

That's great!

Halloween for us.....end of a 500 foot driveway thru the woods on a street that's mostly farm land. Haven't had a single kid show up the 8 years since we built the house.

We usually decorate, carve some pumpkins, bake and deocorate cookies, and tell scary stories with our kids...

I try to ignore it, quite frankly. That's tough to do when teaching sixth-graders, though! Um, who says candy/sugar doesn't affect children?

I hope I don't buy too much candy.

I end up eating the leftovers.


I love seeing the little kids in their costumes. Too shy to say treat or treat, not too shy
to take the candy!

I never minded "real" Bit-O-Honeys . . . I always thought the absolute worst were those generic peanut butter chews in the black and orange wax paper wrappers.



Yuck. These were basically just used for throwing at each other.
