What a nice witch!
Happy Halloween from here in Europe too!
This year the shelves in our Hungarian supermarkets are still full of candy etc, wonder what they’ll do with the stuff after.
I surprised my family with some very nice Halloween table napkins featuring a skeleton/carcass …
Wolf, Happy Halloween to you and Europe! Diane and I plan to sit in our driveway and hand out candy tonight (masked and socially distant, of course). I wonder how many kids will show up.
Diane is looking good!
We haven’t had anyone come to our door in years – there aren’t that many kids in the building, but even the ones who do live here seem to trick or treat elsewhere – and I certainly don’t expect any tonight. This is the coldest Halloween we’ve had in 28 years. It was only 32 this morning (normal low: 46), not far off the all-time low on this date of 28.
Jeff, we woke up to frost on the ground here. Western NY will warm up to about 46 degrees this afternoon, but temps will begin to slide by the time any potential “Trick-or-Treaters” show up between 5:30 and 7:30 P.M. tonight.
For the first time in 20 years, I’m keeping the porch light off. I haven’t purchased any candy and, while I can’t imagine they’ll be too many trick-or-treaters in a neighborhood where the debris from multiple downed trees (courtesy of hurricane Zeta) still dot the landscape, I’m not going to participate even if there are. Even were we not still recovering from being without power for 36 hours, there’s covid to contend with: having crowds of little kids going house-to-house sticking their hands in big bowls of candy is surely a “super spreader” event!
Deb, Diane and I stuffed candy bars into Ziplock bags. We’ll put them out on a small table for the trick-or-treaters to choose. I’m guessing we’ll get some kids tonight, but not the usual number.
Advice on a safe way to celebrate reminded me that you should not let children put their hand in a jar or basket to draw candy out. You should place a wrapped piece on the table as they come up to you. So many things to think about.
Patti, we’re thinking in the same groove as you’re thinking.
We’ll turn off the lights, as usual, and bought NO candy this year. No one has come to the door in years, so why bother? With Covid, there’s no point anyway. Enjoy your driveway-sitting!
Rick, the kids have been through a lot in 2020–schools shut down, parties cancelled, social distancing & masks–that Diane decided if we could bring them a little cheer, we should make an effort.
No kids came here so I had to make the tough decision to eat the candy myself! Not that there was much!
Bob, we had over a 100 costumed kids at our door for Halloween. We ran out of candy after an hour and a half so we turned off the outside lights. Zero candy for us!
