I live in a "drop-off" neighborhood. We have a lot of cul-de-sacs, sidewalks and streetlights, low traffic and the houses are plentiful. We also have hundreds of kids in the neighborhood, and then there are hundreds more dropped off, because they live in rual areas or apartment complexes. It's a madhouse on Halloween night.

Even though I have no problem with the trick or treaters, I can't help but resent that we (the sub-division) is footing the candy bill for the drop-off kids.
There are plenty of church "Trunk-or-Treat" events, and the malls have trick or treating at the stores, which is supposed to be for the rural and condo-kids.

But, still, they are kids and they love the holiday, so I buy a few bags of candy and when it's gone, I turn out the lights and ignore the door. I buy the 'gross' candy though. I get Twizzlers and Tootsie Rolls, because I can resist them. I can't resist the 3 Musteteers :)
