Great clips as they had me laughing the whole time.

I wonder if Kimmel is going to ask for videos of coal in the kid's stockings for Xmas or no presents under the tree Xmas morning? One present might be funnier.

I remember that my Halloween bag was usually a pillowcase. As I got old enough to go on my own, I would sneak a second pillowcase under my costume, and then make sure that by the end I had one full pillowcase with a good start on the second.

When handing it out, we save back a stash of the best stuff for ourselves.

When my DW noticed most of the Kit-Kats gone, she stuffed more from the bowl into a ziplock for herself with instructions not to touch. "Not a problem," I said. "I already have most of the Milky Ways." :D

This video makes me very happy I turned off the front light on the 31st and watched scary movies on TV instead of handing out candy.....

In our house, bags of Halloween candy always develop a hole in them before Halloween night. I think we have mice. Yea, that must be it... :rofl:

That makes me sad. I love Halloween. I get dressed up and stand outside to hand out candy to the kids. My whole yard is covered in spooky stuff and I have a creepy-crawler barrel that that they can reach way down into and grab a rubbery insect or rodent, etc. :eek: I made 100 treat bags this year and ended up with 10 left. Parents take pictures of their kids in my graveyard setting and with my singing Frankenstein. Its a hoot.

A long time ago I remember going to this one house and the guy had tied a string around a piece of candy. As I began to turn away he would snatch the candy back out of my bag. It was all in fun and he would give everyone extra candy for the prank. Oh to be a kid again ! :hysterical:

One of my favorite houses when we were kids, the dad worked at the produce market just down the street and he'd set up a big half-barrel for apple bobbing on his porch. Didn't matter if you got one of the many pennies or the single silver dollar - it was so much fun to trick-or-treat at BethAnn's house!

This year my favorite costume was one of the high-school girls - she cut white spots out of felt and pinned them all over her black sweatshirt and pants, and had angel wings and a halo. Holy Cow!

Our street like the majority of streets around here had three or four houses with lights on and the rest dark. There's a handful of brightly lit neighbourhoods that get heavy traffic. Parents generally drive around to find these neighbourhoods. Our neighbour who left their lights on got 4 or 5 kids, mainly local, while the brightly lit houses by the high school got more than 100. One of my workmates who lives on the east (poorer) side of town reported several hundred kids.

May people gave up because of years of wet cold weather kept the numbers down and there have developed a lot of alternate Halloween activities on the weekend.

None of which changes the fact that a substantial number of the kids in that video were spoiled brats who should have gotten a lump of coal instead.

I t was a very interesting night around here - most of the surrounding towns lost power - some parts of the state still won't have power until Sunday.

No school on Monday or Tuesday, and spirits were dampened (pun not really intended, but it fits). When we headed out the door, we didn't see many kids at first, and it seemed like it would be a lousy night, but things picked up. Usually many of our neighbors head to other parts of town, but this year became our turn to host outsiders, since we had power.

The first year we lived here (moved mid-October), hardly anyone had their lights on, but over the last few years younger families with kids have moved in, and there is more activity. The adults enjoy it because it gives us an excuse to get out and meet each other - something none of us seem have the time to do otherwise.

Great video! Growing up I was the one that didn't care for sugar (I'll take savory over sweet any time) and would take weeks to eat my candy, but my sister ate hers in one night (she kept a box of brown sugar with a big spoon under her bed too). She definitely would have been crying!

I have an old polaroid of the two of us in leopard costumes, sitting on the dining room table. My sister is stuffing her face with candy and I'm looking at my bag as if she just took the candy from me. She probably did!

Very funny. Kinda sadistic, but very funny.

We didn't have sweets growing up, except at Easter and Christmas. And we lived in the country and didn't Trick-or-Treat.

Well, I have excellent teeth now, LOL.

I can relate to the poster who was sneaking the Kit-Kats out of the hand-out basket. :D

We live on a big trick-or-treating street. This was a terrible year because of the wet snow and the tree branches everywhere, and some people lost their power, and the town had a voluntary curfew at sundown...but we still gave away five bags of Butterfingers, twenty coupons for mini-Frostys at Wendy's, one box of Nutri-Grain bars (getting desperate here), and a bag of Reese's peanut butter cups that we really wanted for ourselves. :D

DW and I gave out a lot of candy. We are in a neighborhood that is a "destination resort" for trick or treaters and we have no problems with that. We did not see one neighborhood kid stop at our door. That was one of our disappointments. The other disappointment was that we recalled how much our 2 long gone Golden Retrievers enjoyed Halloween. They so enjoyed greeting all the kids and insisted on being part of the meet and greet process.

Our 18 yo came home to hand out the candy, she dressed up to answer the door in a costume. Was nice to have her helping out. I always buy the kinds we like in case the weather is bad. I know about the problem of a hole in the bag before Halloween. :)

I used to buy candy I don't like, to try to save myself from eating it, though I'd eventually get desperate enough to eat anything chocolate. Now we don't get trick-or-treaters so don't buy any candy. If we did, it wouldn't last long enough to make it to the freezer.
When we have chocolate in the house DH has to hide it from me and dole it out when I need a "fix" - but he's a really lousy hider :D

I wouldn't say that. Halloween was such a fun night for them, and they want to continue to spread out the enjoyment. They were shocked their parents stole from them. If they were spoiled they would have eaten it all immediately. They had self control (or parent control).
