We decorate our yard and make it very spooky and creepy for the kids. Lots of jack-o-lanterns, animated witches, skeletons, and ghosts. A creepy animated doorbell and a creepy animated doormat give the kids a fright when they come to the door for their treats. Ghostly moans and groans come inside the darkened house along with creepy Nox Arcana music. We dress in costume to answer the door and hand out the candy.
Once the trick-or-treaters are in bed and down for the night, the adults in the neighborhood come over to end Halloween with cocktails and a Halloween feast.
I'm pretty boring. Every year I like to watch the movie Trick 'r Treat on Halloween. Though I was introduced to the movie Pumpkinhead last year and loved it, so I might add that into the routine this time too.
We are in our late 60's. We set up a table in front of the open garage and lay the candy bars on it and have several motion detector toys around the table. We let the kids, and parents too if they want, come and pick out whatever candy they want. Love to watch the expressions on the little ones.
Currently, my tradition is dressing up in costume and attending the"Rocky Horror Picture Show". This year, in addition, my roommates and I may hold a party in an abandoned cabin on my landlord's property. I have a fogging machine, and can get some Christmas black lights for effect.
Let my husband take the children door to door in the community, I distribute treats at our house that are probably the healthiest anyone will give out and hope we don't get egged.

Is it OK for an adult to dress up and go out trick or treating?I don't mean adults taking their kids around or young adults enjoying their last Halloween. What do you think about adults who trick or treat, looking for candy on Halloween night?

How early do you start and how late do you still give out candy on Halloween?Since it is a Saturday this year, I just wondered what was the typical start time and end time for most people.
