Chuck U Farley
I still remember the unbridled joy of dressing up and begging for sweet treats and actually receiving some. This vid is classic!
We would egg, or flame the houses that gave us popcorn, apples and, most hated, coupons. Then we would rook our younger siblings out of their best candy by trading.
I agree about the raisins. Nasty little dried-up boogers.
I always have two bowls…
One bowl full of candy for the little tykes and the other for the almost too old kids full of junk like a can of potted meat,a sock with a hole in it, a rusty pair of pliers, a broken pair of glasses, etc…you should see the facial expressions when they realize what’s in the bowl…heh heh.
They do get candy though because I don’t want any “Chuck U Farley’s” happening to the house or car.
@Chuck U Farley — I’m old enough that we treasured the houses that gave us homemade caramel apples and popcorn balls. We also got homemade cookies and candies.
I miss those days.
As for our Halloween giving, we have no kids around us that are young enough to go Trick or Treating. Therefore, we keep our lights off.
Trick or Treating is for young kids, not teenagers!

this is great.
so true about the mom and dad tax.
we would come home after hours of dragging a pillow case around town to have dad go through it and cherry pick the good stuff.
still remember the dentist down the street who gave out toothbrushes and floss.
We have alot of kids, and two candy containers. 1. Little kid in cute costumes (chocolate candy bars). 2. Smoking, babies in stollers, old enough to vote (gummy bears).
apple pie, HeadMissy is a special case, because she smiles so sweetly when she hands ‘em out. An onion from her is better than full-sized Snickers from anyone else.
Thats funny. And the candy onions would be an absolute blast if you could see the look on their faces when they take a bite.
I’m out of trick-or-treat range, but if one ever showed up I have a jar of pennies or some cough drops. How about half a roll of toilet paper?

When my sons were trick-or-treat age, they’d use pillow cases thinking they’d fill the damn thing. My oldest would chew through his in a week. I’ll swear my youngest would have a piece of last year’s Halloween candy the day before the new Halloween. How he hid that stuff in that small room with only one chest of drawers still amazes me.

The official exchange rate is :
2000 pieces of candy corn= 1 M&M
One year I dressed up as Hitler. You should have seen the looks of the old people as they opened the door.
