CUT OFF AGE for HALLOWEEN
 
ok, i have a problem with adults who TRICK-OR-TREAT as they push along their INFANT in a stroller and no other child in site.

and sometimes i have problems with a gang of the older “kids" of 17-20 who arent even costumed especially if i am running low on goodies for the kids of say, 5-12.

but i do feel bad for the older teens 13-17 if they really still like getting dressed up and dont cause trouble, heck i dont mind giving them goodies too.

what do you think? MULTIPLE VOTING. (sorry, i thought it would say that)

We have friends who loved Halloween and when they had their daughter, they made her a little pumpkin costume and went door-to-door. The baby was about 3 weeks old. I don't mind parents of babies or older kids. I just buy lots of candy. I find that the kids come within certain times... babies and toddlers at around dinner time, school kids after dinner for about an hour and older kids until about 8 pm...when the candy is gone, the lights go off and hubby and I put on a scary movie and dinner in peace...lol

The best fun for me is decorating the yard...one year a friend who owned a 1960ish hearse, parked it in our driveway and we had a ghoulish tailgate party from it. The kids loved it.

Trick or treat! Can I have some candy, little girl? hahahaaa

neling4 10-02-2011 06:55 PM

I plan to sit outside with my cauldron full of candy giving it out to whoever shows up. :pumpking:

Halloween is my favorite holiday: No stress or work and lots of fun.

If you're willing to dress, I'll give you a treat.

Further, if you're an attractive and eligible female -- preferably dressed as a French maid, cigarette girl, Elvira or Playboy bunny -- then I've got something "special" for you...

I did the stroller thing with my oldest only because I was so proud of how cute my boy was and could not wait to show him off lol it had nothing to do with candy lol..

*snicker* LOL

@ yaahl

is that a naughty snicker I hear lol

our house is the one everyone comes to. the hubs makes his own decorations and we have the fog machine and dry ice the scary music, candles...etc. People will come and bring their kids and take pics with the decorations. I'm thinking this year we might get the giant spiders they have at walgreens. Usually end up going through too much candy....our street can hold cars on either side so it's packed. there used to be a guy who would dress up like Michael Meyers and walk up and down the street. *L* I think last year we bought the huge bags of candy (all total 15 or 16 bags) and still didn't have any left. Now the neighbors are getting into it as well and decorating. It's pretty fun! :)

Sounds fun! I'd come to your house just to see. Anyhow, I, too, give a treat to anyone who wears a costume. I think it's really fun.

I like to give to the younger ones. Get very far past puberty and I think you should have better things to do. Dress up in costumes and go party with your friends. Leave the candy for the younger ones.

If ya come during the same times as the younger ones, ya get candy - even parents if they want. But once the little ones stop coming, the lights go off.

MAN I SHOULD be living on YOUR block! i am the only one, so far, on this cul-de-sac that has decorations up. of course its government housing for elderly & disabled, and i know we are all on a tight budget. but still. i have 7 those three foot tall skelletons dangling all over my yard and stoop. different pumpkin decorations with them, and ghosts, one a sheet covering my potted tree (4ft). i also have those orange mini lights strung around, bats hanging on suction cups on my window with hot orange curtains. i have a light back drop at night. i love halloween!

**laughin big time** i like to be different, so i hardly give out candy. i either make decorated cupcakes, popcorn balls, or give out rubber snakes and insects (5”). this year i am handing out cans of ORANGE CRUSH i will put in those clear decorated bags.

I found some "Very Evil Eyes". You put batteries in them and stick them on the inside of your windows and they glow and blink. I have purple eyeballs and green eyeballs. :tongue:
