    1. People who hand out crappy candy.

    2. People who hand out carrot sticks! For real?

    3. Infant trick-or-treaters.

    4. Trick-or-treaters who don't say "thank you."

    5. Trick-or-treaters who don't say "trick or treat!"

    6. Kids at my door who don't wear costumes.

    7. People who don't answer their door, even when the light is on and you can see them inside.

    --------------------

    1. People that give out Big Red soda's. Yes my son had a grown up actually put that in his basket just last year.

    2. Homemade treats "from strangers".

    3. People that leave a big bowl of candy by the front door for a "help yourself" kind of trick or treating...

    4. People who "help themselves"..TO ALL the candy in one swipe!!!

    5. Having to explain to my kids that they can't eat all the candy in one night.

    I only have fond memories of Halloween because back on Oct 30, 1990, was when I came to the US. The next day, I got to go out in a sheet and get loads of free candy! America sure knows how to say "Welcome!" :p:

    But, I've never had a sweet tooth, so I would always give away my candy.

    I'm having fun this halloween though, I'm going to buy a costume for my dog :)

    I give out seeds (only for the more hardy plants since it's October), school supplies, and toilet paper to the first 20 visitors. Then I shut down and eat candy.

    I have a sis in Milwaukee. Every year, they have Halloween on the last Sunday in October instead of Oct 31st. Stop babying the kids!

    you guys should try giving out scoops of ice cream. Just plop a scoop right in the bag. I mean, what kid doesn't like ice cream.

    I always hated getting candy that had needles and razor blades in them, and most of all hated getting poisoned candy.

    At least the needles and razor blades had some utility to them.

    That's happened to me once. Some old lady forgot it was Halloween and felt so bad that she offered me some ice cream. I declined. Whos to say she wasnt going to throw me in an oven and make her own version of a Gingerbread Cookie.

    I hate seeing 10-12 year old girls dressed like whores.

    I hate people who come to my house at 10 o'clock at night and ring the doorbell when the front porch light and all of the lights in the front of the house are off, then stand there looking at me like I'm some sort of jerk when I answer the door and tell them to get bent.

    Pretty much everything else about it I love.

    I can't stand the older teenagers who don't wear costumes and don't say anything when you open the door. No trick or treat or thank you.

    We generally just turn our lights out and don't even buy candy.

    When I was a kid, my grandmother made popcorn balls every year for Halloween to hand out. We would make them together and wrap them up in wax paper then twist the end into a little handle.

    One year, people started refusing them because they were too scared of something that wasn't factory sealed. It really broke her heart.

    Sign of the times, I guess.

    On the other hand, I love making elaborate Halloween costumes, although I haven't done it for years.

    I think my favorite was John Lennon from the Sgt. Pepper album cover. My friend still wears it to this day, as he plays John Lennon in Beatlemania Live!

    Now I stick to carving pumpkins mostly. :D

    Hey! I was one of those teenagers! Except depending on the block, we'd just ring the doorbell and run. Not even getting candy. Fun times. :D

    What's my treat if I ring your doorbell? Besides mace, of course.
