It's a dilemma for sure.  What to do about Halloween? My city is allowing it to happen but really I'm not interested in giving out candy this year. As the virus numbers go up I'm a little nervous about opening my door   We usually only get 15 to 20 kids anyway so I'm thinking it will be ok just to have my lights off.  

Not wanting to be the neighborhood mean person I decided a couple of days ago what to do.  There are three or four houses right close to me that have kids.  I know how many live at each house and I think I'm going to hand deliver some candy to their doors as it gets closer to Halloween (using safe distance practices of course). 

What do you have planned for Halloween or What's going on in your neck of the woods?

I stopped participating in Halloween last year. Our neighborhood has few homes that hand out candy. We have very few kids any more. It is just a safety factor for me being alone now.

Vickie @Vickie's Kitchen and Garden said...

Kids come and go in our neighborhood too. We do have quite a few around us now and it's so nice to hear them again.
I wouldn't hand out candy alone either Cheryl.

We don't usually get a single kid to our door but we do make up baggies of candy and give them to the neighbor kids. We will leave or lights off too just in case. But, our neighborhood has 2.5 to 10 acre lots so most are not interested in walking down our long driveways and it is dark out at the street even with our house lights on.

Vickie @Vickie's Kitchen and Garden said...

I like the idea of a bag a candy more and more. I wouldn't have walked down the long driveway either as a kid. Our driveway is longer than most in the middle of scary bushes so I believe that's why we don't get as many kids here.

I like your fall decorations!
We live out in the country, so haven't had any trick or treaters in years. I may put a few baggies of candy out in a bowl just in case, but I'm not opening my door this year.

Vickie @Vickie's Kitchen and Garden said...

I don't blame you a opening doors here either Kathy!

Belinda said...

We don't get any trick or treaters, so it's not an issue for us. I might be tempted to put a bowl of candy on the porch for them to get since you have only 15 to 20 kids, but I also like your idea of taking them candy to their house too.

We live so far out that no one comes to our house except our grandson & he didn't come last year. I love your idea. I think it's such a good one...if you know them well enough you could make a fun home made treat if you have time.

I haven't heard anything about what our communities are doing but my daughter-in-law is doing a pop-up shop the day before Halloween. She'll be selling Halloween/fall themed treats in person at a local gift shop. She used to do this about once a month or so before covid & this is her first one with covid. I wish she would just take orders but she's a very social girl & loves doing it. Plus, she gets to do whatever she enjoys doing without worrying about making to order.

I'll be keeping the grandson that day. His birthday is the 27th & we're having a small family party (my son, his wife, her mom & us).

They did close the local elementary school yesterday because a teacher was diagnosed with covid...yuck. But the didn't tell the students who came in contact with her to quarantine so I don't know how much that will help. And most likely, many of those children stayed with grandparents today.

Vickie @Vickie's Kitchen and Garden said...

It's hard ..sometimes I still don't know what to do but I think I'll stick with giving them candy.

Vickie @Vickie's Kitchen and Garden said...

Aww what a fun time to have a birthday. I know you'll make it fun. He will be so excited!

School is so worrisome right now especially when you hear stories like that. You can catch covid so easy they say. I hope the teacher gets better soon and all the students are ok.
