@Member114264 You are like the Scrooge of Halloween 😆

 

I don't feel up to giving out candy, but hopefully someday in the future. I really enjoyed trick-or-treating when I was little.

Besides It'll be too cold out for any kid unless they come from up north where it's regularly 30's this time of the year.

Also it's flu season, trying to avoid an outbreak is important too.

@Member114264 I meant for scaring them off with your dogs, it's fine that you're not handing out candy and don't want to answer your door.

They naturally loudly bark at everything.

So not my problem if they get scared, but if they don't good for them.

Personally, I'd pull a Calvin and Hobbes and hide in the bushes with a hose.

Ok so, actual story from last night.

 

I was sitting on the porch smoking and with headphones in listening to music, and a bunch of costumed kids came up the front path and said something to me. (We don't really get many trick or treaters, and I honestly had forgotten that it was a possibility some may show up.) I internally freaked out and pulled out my earbuds and mumbled something dumb and ducked inside, heart pounding, and yelled for my housemate to come downstairs because I had no idea if we even had any candy. And then I promptly ran upstairs and hid in the bathroom until they were gone and let him deal with them. 😂

 

I don't care for children and I don't care for being taken by surprise. Combine the two, and despite the fact that I'm halfway through my 30s, it reduces me to an anxious mess.

I went trick or treating with friends, i was queen of hearts, and then my friends were the cheshire cat and alice, if anyone cares :P But yeah, my boring mom stayed home and gave out candy to the 5 kids who came by! Usually we get more than that, usually around 50 kids, but not this year! Where we live, there are two court yards, and i guess people go to the other courtyard first cause its closer to the front and dont notice there is another one. But now i get all the left over candy!!! :D

We go out to dinner to hide from the start of it all. Then, once we come home, keep most of the lights off, ignore anyone who comes to the door, and either watch movies together in the family room or in our own rooms. Almost like we’re hiding. We used to give out candy (we tried to get the good stuff), and it was cute to see the kids. The problem is our neighborhood’s like a trick-or-treater destination. Everyone comes by from not just the neighborhood, but surrounding ones as well. We live in a house that’s right at a 3-way stop and in the middle of the neighborhood, so we stand out. When we handed out candy, we had to get several pounds of it. Even then, you weren’t sure if it’d last. Constantly answering the door is a pain, too.

I'm sexual but never wanted to have kids, so I find myself privileged to live in a condo that is locked, and does not appear to have families with kids. I have lived here for 10 years, and for most of that time, I have gone out and bought a 5 lb bag of candy. But the past couple of years, I haven't bothered. I do know it's bad for me (though i can't say that alone has done anything for my waistline; I have too many other dietary problems).

 

So, to answer the question, I probably fall between poll answers. I stay around my condo, but I don't do anything different. I just surf the web as i am doing right now. But these days, I'm not noshing on
Kit Kats, Mounds, Whoppers, and whatever else I would normally have on hand.
