I expect this to be our first year to get all decorated up as the boy started school in September so will know all about it. We live in the middle of nowhere though so don't expect many trick or treaters, but we will arrange something I am sure.

We always go for this, lanterns in the windows, pumpkin on the doorstep. We have loads of kids come round.

Occasionally i ask the older kids if they are a bit old for sweeties, which usually embarresses them.

We do if for our 6 year old daughter and her friends, but love seeing the other little uns come round.

Big halloween bowl of jelly sweets.

Predictably, I hate Halloween. I generally ignore the door if older kids knock, and say "TRICK" to the younger ones if they say "trick or treat". Throws them right off, it does.

If you're not prepared for both scenarios, don't offer them both to me you silly little things... :lol:

Didn't get a single trick or treater last year which meant I got to eat all the lollies to myself :D We live on a really quiet crescent and its mostly older kids in the street.

First year with the doberhound this year and think the fact that he hurls himself full-pelt at the door barking whenever anyone knocks might put off any potential tricksters. Won't get to see tho cos we is off to Whitby to see the sights (its GOTH weekend), considering decorating the van though :D and have narrowed fancy dress down to 2 potentials - looking forward to it lots!
