last night we did some halloween reconnaissance to find the best streets in our neighborhood to trick or treat. we hardly receive any trick or treaters at our house, so we didn’t know if our area was popular. since we love dressing up and celebrating halloween, we wanted to make our sons experience just as special (so we’re prepping for next year). we knew there was a house that went ALL out with decorations, so that was our first stop. they had music and fog and moving zombies. spiders that were triggered by motion detectors to jump, and a ghost that flew across the sky. that house put all the others to shame. it had a huge line for candy, and parents taking tons of pictures of the front lawn. needless to say, the reset of our neighborhood is filled with kids, just not our street 😦
since we were out and about, we left our candy on the front porch with a homemade sign. we came home to some candy, so maybe it worked.
here are some “mean” notes for your enjoyment: http://www.someecards.com/life/holidays/notes-for-trick-or-treaters
