    Because I ain't doing it, and debated it when I was at the store this morning.

    Just wanted to see whether anyone in the congregation felt the same.

    Only if you answer the door and give them a lecture about the evils of candy and tooth decay.

    Or if you give them healthy shit instead of candy. That'd be a sure-fire way to get your house egged.

    If you trick-or-treated as a kid, then the answer is yes.

    Halloween is a holiday that promotes withcraft and celebrates pagan worship. It should be banned.

    Crap. How much does it cost to buy two bags of bite-size 3 Musketeers?

    Just buy the candy.

    If you don't want your house to be egged or teepeed, then I suggest you buy the candy. But if you live in an apartment, you have nothing to worry about.

    No.

    Any kiddos coming to my house are going to waste their walk up the driveway.

    There were almost no trick-or-treaters in 2001 just after 9/11 and I guess the anthrax stuff. I was tempted not to buy any candy for 2002. Then I envisioned myself as an old man standing on my front porch, waving my cane and screaming, "Get off my lawn, ya little bastards!" I bought the candy.

    Just turn off all your lights and go out that night. I don't have any probs with someone who doesn't give out Halloween candy.

    Actually, Frank, as with most neighborhoods around me, they do trick-or-treat from 6-8PM.
    I can set my watch by my neighbor and his wife faithfully pulling out of their driveway at 5:55 and returning at 8:05.
