BOOOOOOOOO! Happy Halloween!
What are you going to be? Do you have enough candy for all those kiddies who might be coming to the door?
I get trick or treaters of all ages. Some of mine have been clearly high school kids. I don’t mind as long as they have good manners. Most of my visitors do have good manners. All of them say thank you.
I don’t get huge numbers of kids. Too much work to work my street, would be my guess. Most self-respecting kids know that the smartest Halloween kids work the townhouse communities. You can get a pillowcase full of candy running through a townhouse community.
Most of my visitors, except the teenagers, have parents with them who are carrying flashlights. I think that is important. Kids shouldn’t be out on their own. Even though I live in an older, established community, parents just can’t be too careful. It’s reassuring to look out from the porch and see that a group of kids have a parent or two watching what’s going on. I feel safer and I know those parents feel their kids are safer.
