Camden and Wyoming are having Trick or Treat in their towns, FYI. Wyoming's Halloween is scaled down, but still, they're having something down at the train platform for the kids between 5 p.m. and 8 p.m. They usually have hot dogs, drinks, bags of candy, and some games. Not this year. We're turning the lights out and going for a ride, then we'll sneak in the back door and sit in the dark.

This is a pretty good idea of how it is being handled. OF course we already reported that Sew Witch was cancelled.

rdlr--sounds about like what we'll be doing! I quit handing out candy once my son outgrew trick-or-treat (which was many years ago!). We would go out to dinner every Halloween and come home right when it ended. We may or may not do dinner this year, but we won't be here! We have very few, if any, trick-or-treaters in here anyway. Everyone pretty much goes to Whites Creek for that.

I'm in a city/county in the red zone, but our mayor is all in favor of trick or treat -with some sensible modifications. It's clear but a bit chilly here at present, and the Hallowe'en Blue Moon will certainly add to the ambiance in a few hours.

So as advised, I will be putting a small table covered with a washable tablecloth on my front walk. When it's time, I'll spread out wrapped candy (not all at once - will monitor during the 6-8 designated time and add more as conditions dictate. I'm tying off my front steps up to the porch, but will leave outside lights on.

The smaller neighbor kids usually come early, escorted by parents - the older ones come in groups, minus parents, after dark. I just tried to plant a wooden "trick or treat stop" sign, but to my surprise, the ground was too hard (even after four inches of rain this week). So will see if I can use Plan B. for that. Just have to figure out what Plan B. is.

Wish I could find more battery operated tea lights to go on the table with the candy, as it will be pretty much in the dark after 7:00. Might move a solar light nearby. Glo-Lights would work - if I had any. Don't want to risk real candles.

Afterwards, I'll put on my gloves and remove the tablecloth with any remaining candy, take it inside, pour off the candy into a paper bag, then toss the tablecloth into the washer. Then move in the little table, which will remain untouched by anyone but me. Candy can sit or get Lysol-sprayed.

This year, we could all do without the really frightening stuff, but Americans are resourceful and I hope can find safe ways to celebrate, especially for their children's sakes. Happy Hallowe'en!
