What will you do tonight to celebrate Halloween?

Do have something special planned this evening, after dark, when witches, goblins, ghosts and ghouls will emerge from their homes in search of candy and other treats?

Or are you headed off to a wild party, where you can let loose behind a mask and not embarrass your true self? Or are you just planning a quiet evening at home or in your RV as you do most years?

That’s our question. Let’s see if Halloween is a big deal to our readers or not.

Oh, before we leave, a Halloween joke: Why do demons and ghouls hang out together? Because demons are a ghoul’s best friend!

As always, your comments are welcome.

And now a final word: Boo!

25 years ago we moved into this one neighborhood and I was warned to expect over 300 children. They were right. We ran out of candy. 25 years later all the children are grown and now it is just the old timers and grown children who have moved away. We normally get about 80 and in the last 3 years have gotten less then 50. Sad to see but I totally get it. Mine is now grown up and on her own. This will probably be the last Halloween seeing us handing out candy. Maybe. I still have enough for 80 children but at least I bought candy that I like. Happy Halloween everyone.

When we had our home we would get over 250 kids. Some older kids brought the littles. We gave candy to all costumed or not. Some parents got a little wine to keep them motivated. Now we winter over in a very rural area and don’t expect any kids tonight.

Very few Trick or Treaters in our neighborhood. I answered turn out the lights and hope kids don’t knock on my door, but that’s pretty much what we normally do on a Sunday evening.

Around here the neighborhood T-or-T crowd dwindled to nothing a while ago. The last two years we had any kids come, we gave out full sized candy bars to the half dozen or so that showed up, but that wasn’t enough to incentivize participation. We haven’t had any T-or-Ters in about 10+ years now… Always enjoyed seeing the great costumes.

Since it’s not raining in the Seattle area, we expect to see a LOT of trick-or-treaters this year. Got plenty of candy from Costco yesterday and got to get it in sorted for the kids, saving the Almond Joys for myself…, after reading the newsletter.

We stayed at Staunton River State Park in Virginia this past August to watch a meteor shower. We also saw the Milky Way. They are a designated Dark Sky campground.

We live on an old family farm that hasn’t seen trick-or-treaters since the cousins grew up.

Halloween?
Here in Nevada it is Nevada day!
10\31/1864
The entire state constitution was sent by telegraph to WashDC. Took a little over two days.
Since the North wanted the gold and silver, Nevada was admitted to the Union with substantially less than the population required to become a state. An illegal birth for the Battle Born State!
And…Levi’s jeans were created here.

We WERE going to drive down and walk with our three granddaughters as they went through the neighborhood. Instead, one tested positive for covid, thankfully mild case, and are stuck at home 10 day quarantine. So Grandma and I are playing reverse trick or treaters and delivering goodies to them. Just a drop-off, not seeing them. Get your shot folks, so we can make this dang virus go away.

My sister and I will dress as witches and do window visits at the Independent Living Center where our 98 year WWII Veteran dad resides. The facility is currently locked down (C-19) and we are unable to enter so window visits are the next best thing.

We will be working at our church’s carnival and trunk-or-treat, as always. Need to get that car decorated!

Over the years the amount of T to Ts that came to our door has dwindled to nothing, in the last 5 years we have had no one come through our neighborhood. I think that the events held at Churches and malls as well of fear of children safety has led to this.

I get to stay in the bedroom with the dogs so they don’t scare the kids. She won’t let me scare the kids

No kids in my rural area since the Nieces and Nephew aged out so we just continue on as a normal night.
