I either have mom pass out candy, or I leave a bowl (yeah I know some shit can empty my bowl, but my effort is

If you enjoy getting candy from others- do you make sure to give it out yourself?

  • My father loves to sit on our porch and hand out candy to kids while we all go trick or treating.

  • We leave a bowl... Kids here are very respectful, every year we come back and there is still candy in the bowl, in fact we had to put out a "TAKE MORE THAN ONE" sign last year and we still had candy left...

    Next year I'll have a lil one, so I'll stay home and hand it out and my DH will take the other two out.

  • My oldest wants to stay home and hand out the candy this year. It's his choice, so while I take his brother out, he'll be home, then when we get back, they can trade if he changes his mind or just wants to go check out the decorations with me.

  • I've always been told that if your porch light is on- then there's candy to be had and if it's not on- then no one's home- move on!!!
