Fun Friday...Bagging It For Halloween

 

It’s hard to believe that tomorrow is Halloween. This is one of my favorite holidays. It is not tied to current day religion even though its origins are in the Catholic religion. There is no family pressure nor is there pressure to buy gifts!

 

It’s a free-for-all of fun, dressing up, and, of course, candy!!! 

 

halloween gift bags

 

This year everyone is working around our current virus situation...some are leaving wrapped candy on a table out front and others are using a PVC to shoot the candy to a child’s bag. (Now that sounds like fun!)

 

We don’t have a lot of Trick or Treaters on our street because it is a cul-de-sac but I’m ready for them. 

 

This year I have Cheryl’s Cookies which come prewrapped with favorite Halloween candies in a cellophane bag. 

 

Now all I have to do is keep my big child here away from the goodies.

Our local news is filled with all sorts of safety measures to help citizens observe this fun holiday.  I'm looking at those Snickers in comment #15, left by Barbara Todaro .  Snickers is my favorite candy bar.

I think little individual bags is the best plan. Let them pick them off a table.

Kathy,

What a great solution you came with.  No kids come here, and for some reason we have always lived in an area, where kids did not come...A

Kathy Streib How sweet of you . Our condo community does not have many children so there has never really been any Trick or Treaters

I usualy look forward to Halloween and handing out candy, but I'm not sure I can take people and their fear of the virus this year.  I'm not wearing a mask in my own home and I'm not bagging candy that is already wrapped.  They know I had to touch it to put it in the baggie, right?  And who touches the candy going in the PVC pipe?  

I just may leave my light off and treat myself to candy.

Kathy we are doing a Trunk or Treat tomorrow at church.  We have had our candy bagged and ready to go for about 2 weeks now.  Hopefully lots of kids show up.

Wayne Martin that's not right!!!! People need to be able to get out some!!! I hear what you're saying. 

Donald Urschalitz I'm sure that we'll get the half a dozen young ones that live on our street. That's why I got the prewrapped cookies and candies.

Grant Schneider I wonder what it will be like in my old neighborhood in Delray. We used to have 100+ trick or treaters. 

Edward Gilmartin awww come on ...just a little candy. 

Greg Brown, Sales Rep Toronto, Durham region wow... I would have loved that.

Sharon Lee those who want to find it, will!!!

Nina Hollander I bought just a few bags. What I don't give out, I'll give to my nieces. 

Brian England have fun at the tennis tournament, and Anna Banana Kruchten CRS, CRS, Broker, Instructor had a good idea.

Michael Jacobs I'm laughing because this reminded me of an old neighbor I had. One year he put crime scene tape across his front porch and had all of his lights off. The children who came to my door kept asking me if someone was home next door.

Kat Palmiotti my number 1 rule...buy what you'd like to eat. LOL

Rocky Dickerson I get a huge kick out of seeing what the costumes will be. 

Debb Janes EcoBroker and Bernie Stea JD when we were in FL, we'd go to our good friend's home. Bot of their girls would come back after T or T with their friends. Bags of candy were all over the floor and the girls began bargaining and trading. I loved watching it.

Will Hamm I read that some people are putting candy out on a table for the children to take. 

Roy Kelley it's been hard keeping Larry away from the candy. 

Barbara Todaro you know what's funny...I'm not even a big candy eater.

Myrl Jeffcoat you and Larry!!! He loves them. Have you ever had a dark chocolate snicker??

Jeffrey DiMuria 321.223.6253 Waves Realty I started doing this years ago...easier to hand this to a child than have them reach into a bowl of candy.

Ron and Alexandra Seigel I love to hear kids playing outside and because we're on a cul-de-sac they feel comfortable playing at the end of the street. Parents are always watching!!! 

Anna Banana Kruchten CRS, CRS, Broker, Instructor we must have ESP and good karma!!!  I used to wrap homemade brownies in them and give them out at the local Realtors Assn meetings.

Hannah Williams I double checked with my neighbors to see if their children would be out Trick or Treating. And they will be!

Chris Ann Cleland I understand what you're saying.  Hard choices for parents.

Morning Kathy.

Good luck on keeping the big kid from the goodies.  We don't expect a lot of goblins to show up this afternoon

I did bags this year too...with several pieces of candy in each. I am glad I only made 10 because we only ended up giving away 6 bags.

Hi Kathy Streib - We don't get kids in our neighborhood.  But there are other neighborhoods that post online where the candy and trick-or-treat fun is being held.
