How are you celebrating? Trick-or-treating, attending a costume party, making a jack-o’-lantern, lighting a bonfire, apple-bobbing, and or visiting a haunted attraction.
I will be giving out treats. I have found over the years that kids really like tootsie roll pops. Most the children who come to my house are with adults which I think is a good idea. Oh, children seem to be surprised by how tall I am when I open the door. Not really a trick but an interesting reaction. So I just come down to their level when I hand out treats. I used to let the kids pick one piece of candy and if they try to take more I stop them. So I find easier to just give them a treat. Last year I had 55 treat or treaters. I wonder how many I will have this year?
