This just seems overly grumpy. If you don't want to participate or can't afford it, turn off your lights and ignore it.

I’ll agree with that, me. We live in a subdivision in a rural area (mostly horse farms out here). The property owner’s association puts on hayrides for the kids who are trick or treating, a early one for the younger set and one after dark fro the older kids. We also get a few “independents” from out of the subdivision, etc. If you wants to participate, you turns on your outside lights. If you don’t, leaf them dark.

I usually buys 4 or 3 big bags of candy for the kids and hides them in my garage/workshop beer fridge until the 31st to keep DW from eating them.
