I no longer hand out treats on Halloween. Instead, I make little packages of treats for neighbor children and deliver them before Halloween. My lights are off on Halloween night and I move to the back of the house for the evening.
Several years ago, I had a trio of young teens come to my door three times on Halloween. On their third trip, I gave them one small item and they demanded more. I declined and attempted to close my door. They tried to push their way into my entry to block me from closing the door. Trick or treating came to an abrupt end that evening and forever for me.
