I'm a huge fan of Halloween, did the trick or treat thang when I was a kid to teenager. I took my son when he was small. But, my porch lite has been dark and gate locked for the last 12 years, I don't participate anymore, Halloween got too PC-stupid for my taste-we go to Happy Hour instead . I retired from trick or treaters.  Still love the holiday though.

I think perhaps number one would be the best solution, but then again I don't know if I could/would say anything. Depends on my relationship with these individuals.

Unfortunately bananas and avocados are susceptible to tampering as well as candy.  We're with Thomas J. Nelson, Realtor - porch light off and gate locked.

As it is against the LAW here to hand out fresh fruit or homemade goodies it will be candy I like for the leftovers!

I'd ask them to give the candy to someone or take it to work and let people eat it at their leisure.  I don't believe in waste.

I have candy alternatives, and a nut free basket.  I didn't feel compelled.  I feel thoughtful.  I have a daughter with lots of food allergies.  I have bubble blow and pencils and rubber bats and spiders and glow braclets as alternatives to candy.  I always ask the parents first then get the appropriate bowl.

The point is the experience and fun of the night. I would never let my kids eat fruit or non packaged goods...I limited the amount of candy they could eat in a day or evening, so it's fine with me.

How 'bout being compelled to hand out toothbrushes instead?

I've been buying Halloween related pencils, rings, and other similar items lately.  That way, no one needs to worry.

Annette Lawrence , Palm Harbor, FL 727-420-4041 Although I believe most people are not malicious, it only takes one. When the schools had their parties, it enabled the children to celebrate the holiday. Now it it is quickly becoming politically incorrect. What's next, Thanksgiving and Christmas?
