Bet your kids wish they knew how to find our house on Halloween!

That’s over 1400 full-sized candy bars plus 160 “healthy” fruit snacks! (We also give out treats to any dogs who happen to stop by!)

Re: Bet your kids wish they knew how to find our house on Halloween!

That’s why we keep them in the “formal” living room...no one ever goes in there...makes it just a little easier to forget they’re there...I always halfway hope that we will have something left over but in all honestly, those will be gone by 8:30 on Halloween night, even on years when it’s pouring rain outside!

Re: Bet your kids wish they knew how to find our house on Halloween!

We don’t get any kids here, since we’re out in the country - so I don’t even buy candy for Halloween any more because it just means my own waist will expand lol.

Re: Bet your kids wish they knew how to find our house on Halloween!

Once upon a time, we use to get 250 to 350 kids at our front door. Then we moved to the outer edge of the city. Even though we are the very first home in a development of 101 homes, no kids come as this area has switched years ago to tailgate Trick or Treat at the local fire department parking lot.
Kind of miss the activity, but sitting in a parking lot on the tailgate just isn't the same...

Re: Bet your kids wish they knew how to find our house on Halloween!

LOL! This is one of those neighborhoods where they shut down all the roads to vehicular traffic and then bus in the kids from the surrounding areas. This makes 20 years we’ve done Halloween here, so 20 years of handing out full-sized candy bars to 1000 + kids each year! It’s kind of funny, we’ve become a multi-generational legend in these parts!

Re: Bet your kids wish they knew how to find our house on Halloween!

I'll stop by on Halloween lol!

Seriously, that is a very generous gesture! I always overbuy and enjoy the remains for a long while. Many candy bars freeze will!

Re: Bet your kids wish they knew how to find our house on Halloween!

We used to get a lot of trick or treaters, but we knida got a bad rep in our neighborhood for scaring the crap out of the kids. Like hiding a hidden speaker in the bushes, hooked up to a microphine in the house with a box that lowers your voice an octive and we would growl and make all sorts of devil noises. Or hiding one of my sons in a pile of leaves next to the stoop, only have him jump out at the kids. LOL, they leave a wide berth around our place now.

But we never ever got close to 1000 kids inone night...

Re: Bet your kids wish they knew how to find our house on Halloween!

We used to have a lot of people in the neighborhood that went all out as far as decorating and some of them did some pretty scary stuff, but in the last couple of years we’ve seen a pretty big turn-over in the folks that live here so I’m really not too sure what the neighborhood is going to look like this year...

Re: Bet your kids wish they knew how to find our house on Halloween!

That's amazing--- I miss trick-or-treating.... Halloween as an adult just isn't as fun...Although it's nice when you live in an area that still gets trick-or-treaters!!! A few years ago I gave out candy and got 1 all night!!!

Trunk-or-treat is ruining suburban halloween.
