Unhappy Some one hold me and tell me it's going to be alright




This is going to be the first year that I do not have trick or treaters. My kids anyway. They are all too old and over it.

I was just looking at the cute costumes online at they Disney store. Bring back my babies.

You can take me trick-or-treating! Even as a kid I never really cared about getting the candy. I just LOVED dressing up in costumes. Now as an adult I cosplay. I'm always looking for an excuse to pull out one of my costumes.

I like it better now that my kids are big. It always rains on Halloween. Trudging around in the cold rain...yuck. Now we watch Halloween shows on the couch together and pig out on candy. The kids love handing out the candy and seeing all the cutie trick or treaters.

I loved Halloween as a kid, but hate it as an adult. My kids are older now, and I have to worry that they are causing trouble out without me. So far, so good.

When they were little it was agony worrying about costumes, the weather, and trudging through the darkness with a child who could not see.

I did love MNSSHP, though!

Where we live no trick or treaters come to our house, and DS is all grown up. So what I did was go to my BF's house (who lives in the closest small town), and give out candy with her. We drink wine, whoop it up, and the trick or treaters are thrilled because they get two for one!

There are also a couple of older ladies who fill little trick or treat bags, and hand them out right out of their car on the street kitty corner to us (yes, I know this wouldn't be safe in a lot of towns, but ours is REALLLLLY small!).

I have also been known to dress up a dog and take it with .

I am in the same boat, OP. DD will be 16 this Halloween, and even though she has always dressed up and either trick-or-treated or gone to a party every other year, she will be at boarding school this year.

I plan on just enjoying the young kids in the neighborhood- answering the door and handing out candy without having to worry about dropping off/picking up or going with DD. I will also probably join the other adults in the culdesac to hand out treats, then later have a few grownup cocktails.

It will be okay, OP!

DD16 will probably still trick or treat this year, but we insist she wear a costume. Everyone she hangs out with still dresses up and goes, so they're out in groups, which is less worry for the parents. If they decide not to go, we'll (the parents) probably get together and do a party. I miss taking little ones. Right there with ya, OP. It's not as much fun when they're old enough to drive themselves...lol.

Some of my kids' favorite memories are trick-or-treating in Alaska. On base trick-or-treating meant lots of houses close together, so lots of candy with minimal walking. On the other hand, your costume choices are severely limited when you have to wear a parka!

My kids have outgrown it now too, and I also feel sad sometimes. At Christmas I get sad when I walk near the toy aisle in Target, buying pajamas and electronics for my teens just isn't the same as Legos and Barbie dolls.

Have to learn to budget somehow. Want the latest video game? Save up. Want a new Beyblade? save up. Want a new Dooney and Burke? Grab the credit card out of DH's wallet...

It's sad when they grow up and stop ToTing. Mainly because then if you want the 100 Grand bars, you have to actually buy them yourself....

DS 10 stopped ToTing 2 years ago (his choice). He likes to hide around the outside and scare others.

I grew up in western new York so I can relate to wearing a snow suit with your costume. BUT yes I will be just as sad at Christmas.
My husband on the other hands is enjoying it.

Our kids went TorT'ing all through high school, everyone did. As long as they had costumes, people were happy to give them candy, and they usually came toward the end so everyone would dump their extra candy in their bags. Now that everyone is out of the nest, we just have to enjoy the neighbor kids...except I'm going to be out of town for work on Halloween this year . I'll have some candy in my hotel room just in case.
