Beware of The BLOG...it creeps, it leaps, it glides & slides all over the place.

This is why I don't have dinner parties, even for innocent children.
Jan: I hear ya. My girls are in their early 20's and during their elementary school years, I remember bringing in candy for Halloween & Valentines and cookies & cupcakes for their birthdays. I don't hand out chocolate candy bars anymore because they might have peanuts in them... I still buy them, I just don't hand them out ;) Someone has to protect the innocent children.
We have two bowls -- one with regular candy, and one nut free for children who are allergic. If you want organic or vegan or etc., go elsewhere!
HOW DID WE SURVIVE???!!!
Messymimi: I've heard of people doing that, in fact, they make green plastic pumpkins for the 'special' candy. I feel it's the responsibility of the parents to monitor their kids' allergens, not mine.
Z: I ask myself that all the time. When we got together with the aunts, uncles and cousins, they would pile us kids into the back of the station wagon without seatbelts -- heck, without seats because they would flatten the last section and we just had a flat surface to sit on, cross-legged because there were too many of us to extend our legs. Yet we were considered coddled by the standards of the previous generation that survived the Depression and WWII, etc. I think today we may indeed have created a generation of special snowflakes. I wonder what the future will bring?
we haven't done halloween for years now. The kids are nothing but takers and the parents are buttheads.
We leave our home. No lights on and we turn on the alarm and leave. We proceed to our boat where we enjoy a quiet Halloween with no kids at all. Nothing but peace and quiet. We've been doing this for years and years. Heaven.Have a fabulous day. ☺
Kid: Early on in the evening, we got children with their parents. As the night progresses, the kids get older and more obnoxious. This is when we get kids who don't live in our neighborhood and are takers. Years ago, at our old house, my husband was working late. I shut the lights and was watching horror movies until there was a knock on the door. It was a bit late for trick or treaters, but I went to look out the peephole anyway. It was a tall man in a hoodie, wearing a mask and I could tell he was black by his hands. I told him I didn't have any candy and he left. It makes me chuckle to think that I didn't open the door for little kids, but this lowlife thinks this New Yorker is going to open the door for the likes of him. Ha!
