    Give out two dollar bills, the ones with Jefferson on the front.
    I get 200 dollars worth at a time at the bank.
    Actually, I like dark chocolate.

    Eat the good candy, and buy the little boxes of raisins for the kids.

    Years ago people in our neighborhood would give out apples. I would take them all, make a pie, and we all enjoyed it very much.

    Also, I was a hit one year, when I got a big box (500 pieces) of bubble gum. Each kid got about 5 pieces and thought it was great. Ah, the good ol’ days.

    We get 20-30 kids. My wife gets boxes of toys at sample sales for almost nothing and hands those out to the youngest kids.

    that’s pretty good! There were several years that no kids came by after i bought decent candy to give out.

    Now we have an event at church called “Trunk or Treat”. It’s been going on for probably 20+ years. The adults who want to participate dress their trunk, back of the truck, side of the van, etc, and park on on side of the church.

    all others park on the other side so they can have a quick excape after the chile cook-off is over and so they won’t be running over any ‘trunk-or-treat-ers’ in the parking lot.

    bring your lawn chairs and best costumes!
    Some people have been known to make home-made root beer right there in the parking lot, with dry ice, and give out little cups full!

    In very rich neighborhoods around here they give out only one cheap piece of candy to each kid because too many kids travel there. One Halloween my dad had full sized candy bars to give out and not one kid rang the bell because the shrubbery was overgrown and his house looked bad at that time. He looked sad with that plate of candy bars.

    Really? I think kids would change their costumes and come back many times.

    Now my dad’s house is spiffed up pretty nice so kids now ring the bell repeatedly even though the lights are off. Actually, few people even participate in Halloween anymore in that neighborhood.
