  • I have always been the one to stay home and hand out goodies. But we haven’t seen a kid at the door for several years now.

  • I stay home and hand out treats. I have a bin of small toys for the younger kids that come and a bin with items for teens. Each person gets to take 5 things and they each get two bags of chips. I figure when the chips are gone then they still have the things they picked out to play with or use.

  • This year, I stayed home and passed out candy. I also baked a cake for my sons birthday, so this is our favorite holiday, two birds with one stone – LOL!

  • For the 35 years we have been married, we always celebrated my husband ‘s father’s birthday and either had candy outside whichever house we celebrated at that year. This year, sigh, we didn’t have that option. He passed away in February at 93 years old and we got to stay home. And there were no trick or treaters that showed up. So sad.
