Happy Halloween Nebraska (and to any vistors as well!)

So will you be handing out candy tonight? What will you be handing out? I need to know what houses to come too!

I'll be handing out Mike and Ikes and Reese's!

Tootsie Rolls, Tootsie Pops, and Mike and Ike's as well! Grin. PLEASE everyone come to my house - the previous owner said we'd get between 100-150 kids, and we bought for that many - then my local friends said it would be closer to 50! I will have to figure out a recipe to use up all of this candy so I'm not still eating it in Feb!!

We have a mummy in a coffin with a lit-up skull for the head, and gravestones in the front yard, and are putting up a blacklight, spiderwebs, jack-o-lantern, and getting the music machine hooked up today. I'll be the witch at the road to welcome kiddies in.

I really hate Halloween. Can you tell?

It was a little slower in our neighborhood (Papillion), but we are chalking it up to both high schools having away football games... was great weather and a great time seeing the neighbors out..... dp tonight we are just having a bunch of neighbors over for a football party and guess what - all the Halloween candy will be served.

How does Halloween work in the country? Do the parents drive the kids to neighbors houses?
I know in the city you just walk the street, but I'm alittle confused about how it works if you live in the country.

Yes, the parents drive the kids to town, and then either get out at each house/block with porch lights on (little kiddies) or drive behind them as they go house-to-house. The teens drive to town and park and walk around sometimes with their younger brothers and sisters, or their friends, too.

You hit it on the head. That is what we did with our kids when they were young. Used to be quite a few in our area doing it. If we were gone doing that we would leave the porch light on, leave a bowl of candy there for those we missed. Then after hitting the neighbors we would sometimes take the kids to town for awhile.

Now today we don't have many young folks with trick or treat age kids close by. And those that do I believe they head towards town right off.

Ahhh.. Ok. That explains things alittle better. Cute idea about leaving the candy on the porch. You HAVE to live in the country (or a small town) to do that. If we did that, some kids would steal it right off the bat!

We have lots of folks around us that do that - leave it on the porch.....

they either leave it on the porch while they take their own little ones out... we go between neighbors house visiting and when you leave your own house we leave it on the porch..., a single guy next door just doesn't get into the whole thing, but he does leave it on his porch.... never heard of anyone having any issues.
