I live where I have no "Trick or Treaters" but it use to be a big event for me and I loved going out with my kids. How about you?
sort by best latest
I am amazed it is still safe to go out. I know for a few years people pulled tricks in roadways etc; but I haven't heard anything lately. I guess I am glad I live away from it too, lol.
It was mostly people that we actually knew, bringing their kids by. That way they got the fun of Trick or Treating with the safety of knowing who they were getting the candy from.
That's your right. I find with the way things are today I am sometimes kind of glad not to be opening my door to strangers.
Oh I don't blame you Caren. I have two kittens that I am having a time with and the weather suddenly turning colder. They are like our children; we have to take care of them and have them come first since we are all they have! lol
Yes I love ones ppl make themselves best or create with make-up.
You sound like my dad Bob; only thing is he would eat up the candy bars and have to get more Halloween day! I liked getting candy bars! Yum.
I've been known to dig into the candy before Halloween, too, Jackie! Just proves that great minds run alike!!
I am sure I would too if I bought ahead of time but I always waited knowing that candy would only be a memory!
Well I will look to see if you tell how to make them! Too late now but always next year.
I hope you like the hub, it's called:
How to Make Lollipop Ghosts for Halloween
Don't think we can post link here.You click on my pic and go to my hubs to find it there. Tonight was lite with trick or treaters but the kids loved the ghosts. :-)
Yeah you could leave a link; some ppl might delete it if they didn't like it but I don't think HP cares. I did go look and didn't see it but if it's there I will find it this time. Thx.
For some reason, it won't let me paste link here, but I was able to type it here:
Thanks but I found it and left a comment!
Sounds perfect Diana to get to see only a couple without the hassle.
We all have to follow our conscience. I think it is great for churches to have an alternative for young people and teach them good is better than evil..and more fun too.
How is celebrating Halloween evil? Sure, it makes light of the subject Death, which makes everyone uncomfortable, but since we all die eventually, why not face it with humor? Especially since after Death comes Resurrection?
Halloween is a satanic holiday so technically it is about evil but I do not think most people use it as a satanic worship or are even aware of the real holiday so I am not putting it down but saying in a church without threat or danger is good.
My understanding is, it's "All Hallows' Eve", which precedes "All Saints Day", which precedes the "Day of the Dead". It doesn't sound Satanic to me!

I am not going to argue with you but it is certainly not a Christian holiday. I just do not believe what we all celebrate it as is not wrong or meant to be but I cannot uphold it to know what God would think. http://www.believersweb.org/view.cfm?id=7
The issue with Halloween is more than its pagan roots. It harkens back to some of the more demonic of pagan rituals including human sacrifice and devining familiar spirits.
I can imagine in some areas with high traffic it could get expensive. I don't think I ever had many and they were scattered through the night. I did get were I locked my door and turned the light off once the time was up for kids to be out.
Just different in different places and I can see where you are coming from. I just grew up with it around trusting neighbors and evil never entered anyone's minds. It probably today should be stopped for door to door and just be parties.
