    Since when did Halloween get to be so gigantic anyways? I think it's creepy and makes fun of death, injury, and dental issues. Call me a party pooper, that's fine.
    I used to feel that way, and opted out for religious reasons. Then it occurred to me that when you take a morbid holiday and use it for good (such as a fun time for little ones), it becomes a celebration of victory over death, injury (and dental issues).

    I no longer pass out candy,after the first year I was kinda shocked,I saw vans driving down the street with side doors open and kids sitting by open doors bailing out as they stopped,numerous "MEXICO" license plates,sorry it's more like an invasion than Halloween,I just go to a place and hang out with friends

    Fayette-Nam has always been a rough town. Was when I first went there TDY back in the early 70's. Wasn't much better the last time I was there in the early 90's.

    I know I'm an old fart, but I remember when I was a kid, Halloween was a big deal.
    Kids miss out on enough stuff now-a-days with the world being so screwed up, I hate to see them miss out on free candy one day a year.

    My household and our neighbors all sit out at the end of our driveways to pass out candy and visit while the kids walk from house to house. Who knows maybe we'll all pull our grills and coolers down again this year and make a block party out of it again.

    Same as every year I get all fired up for Halloween. I even have quite a few kids from the less affluent part of town who come to my neighborhood to trick or treat.

    It doesn't bother me a bit because they are well mannered and appreciative. I want kids to be safe and enjoy the great holiday. And if those kid's neighborhood is not safe then come to mine.

    I'm not a big fan of teenagers coming to my door but I'd rather give them candy than deal with possible vandalism.

    I will still be armed to the teeth though!

    I don't do it anymore. I did when my kids were young. Then I answered the door with chains, a mask and a real Samurai sword. No one ever gave me any lick of trouble.

    Now, the community has a "trunk or treat" in the church parking lot. Everyone dresses up and you decorate the car trunk or van or whatever you have and the kids go from car to car.

    ARE YOU KIDDING .... I have a 5 month old grandson, and plan to show him off to all of the neighbors. He won't be great at eating the candy, but his older brother and sister will handle that for him.

    His ... FIRST Halloween.

    Besides, not much to worry about around here on Halloween.

    I hang garlic & secret herbs around the door for home defenses.

    Last Halloween, when passing out candy, I simply wore a t-shirt and jeans while my H&K USP was in a belt holster concealed under a photographer's vest. I also had my then S&W SWAT tactical folding knife (recently replaced by Spyderco Endura 4) clipped to my strong side pants pocket and my OC clipped to my lead side pants pocket.

    I'll buy a bag of candy, but considering I'm on the 3rd floor of my apartment building I'm not expecting too many kids. I will be armed with my sidearm and the 870 will be out of its normal hidey hole and perched behind the door. I won't let the threat of doom and death stop me from handing out candy to kids, but I will be much more cautious.

    I don't celebrate Halloween at home and I go out. I also put up a sign stating that "Trick or Treaters" are not welcome and that I am not home. If anyone comes to the door they will be told to leave and no candy is handed out.

    Very few kids in our neighborhood any more. Turn all lights off in the house and be alert for any vandalism .
