Wutz Up With Halloween – Poser

What is wrong with this Halloween picture? 

I don’t want to be negative about a, once, delightful, event for children BUT I simply can’t take it any more!  This will be my last year for giving out treats to the children.  The adults in my area have just ruined it for me and their kids.

This Halloween I just couldn’t believe the number of “Adults”, coming around with infants, in strollers.  Although, the babies were wearing costumes, they could neither walk or chew candy but the parents with No other small child in site,  came up on the porch to retrieve candy for the infant.  About ten of those senerios! 

And, since when have Adults escorting groups of children think they are entitled to a candy reward?  Coming to the door with their own pillow cases!!  What is up with that?

I, as a giver of candy, shouldn’t be put into a position where I would have to call another person on the carpet.  I don’t want to give anyone the opportunity to have an altercation with me over a candy bar.  Just too many lunie tunes walking the streets these days.   😦

    No way!!!

    Tacky, tacky! Think I would have looked at them in shock and said, “You’re kidding, right?”

    We had a whopping 23 trick-or-treaters, and all of them were kids. (Thank goodness!) Some parents walked with, but waited in the wings and let the kids come to the door. They did say “hello”, but no one got candy!

    You must give out some GOOD candy! LOL!

      It is tacky! I couldn’t believe it, myself. Parents taking the fun out of things for the kids. And, in my neighborhood, you don’t want confrontation with an adult. If ya know what I mean.

    In our tiny town of 400, we had a few over 30…several babies in arms and strollers…yes, they got treats for their parents! When the trick or treaters got to be bigger than us..we shut off the lights and locked the door. I guess what bothered me was the elaborate expensive costumes these kids wore…they certainly weren’t home crafted from their own creative energy and stuff around the house. Alot of money is spent on these costumes and most of the parents of these kids are recipients of state and federal money.

    I think I will seriously consider keeping the house dark next year…quite frankly…buying candy for other parents is also expensive. Baw-humbug to me….

      We have tons of kids, which I never minded, eventhough some children don’t even know what the Trick or Treat procedure is, like a thank you.
      You, are right I won’t turn on the lights next year because of crase parents spoiling it all for their own children by hawking for candy. Why should I provide them with free income? I figure the parents are probably selling the candy to the neighbors kids for a nickel a pop through spring! And, yes when they get bigger than you I think I would turn those lights off too!!! 😦

    We live out in the country and have never had a single trick-or-treater in almost 27 years here. It was the one thing I always missed about living in town. I used to love greeting the kids and passing out goodies. After reading this, I won’t miss it any more, I’ll just pass the goodies out to myself.
