I will give candy to ANYONE who comes dressed in costume. ANY age. I give candy to parents out with their costumed kids. ( They love candy too!) I will give candy to the little bitty kids who refuse to keep their costume on. I will NOT give to the big kids in street clothes who are beggers.

If anyone comes to my door in a costume and says "Trick or Treat," I'll give them candy. I don't put any age limits on it either. but when you get some of these teenagers (and I don't mean to cast dispursions on teens) come to the door in street cloths, it demonstrates a lack of tradition on their part. That seldomly happens, but when it does, I usualy am a little chintsy with the candy. I give them only one piece each, but when I see good tradition observed, I'm more generous.

Without a costume, however, TOT becomes just plain begging. If it were to become a more frequent problem, I would probably require at least a face mask before anyone gets any candy. AND, I have seen plenty of very poor kids do some very creative Halloween masks from paper bags, and all kinds of junk they find on their own.

I'll be wearing a costume this year, but not a mask. As a witch I don't think I'll need one. Just a witch's hat and outfit. Maybe some black lipstick though.

maybe you can spice it up a bit by using some creative paint and make up :)

That's great. As long as you honor the TOT tradition, I'll be generous and give you a piece of each candy I have. It's the non traditionalist who wears no costume who I tend to be stingy with, and only give them one piece.

A witcvhes hat, a plastic sword, a chefs hat, anything goes, as long as Halloween TRADITION is observed.

Yea! I'm all for that policy, although, as I said in another similar thread, my house would probably be egged :lol:

The town I live in is retty traditional about a lot of things, including Halloween. In fact, there was even legislation introduced before our sotn counsel to require the wearing of some sort of a costume, or mask in order to TOT on Halloween, but it didn't pass, mainly because our police chief wants to kill TOT.

Like I said, I don't often see TOTers who don't wear costumes. Very seldomly has anyone came to my door without a costume, but I am a stickler for TRADITION, and that sense fo TRADITION is especialy aroused during the last 3 months of the year. I realize that I must sound like I'm 100 years old when I speak about it, but that's the way I am. Some people adapt to the "modernistic" ways better then I do. I prefer to live by TRADITION.

In a way I'm glad I don't get any ToTers. Living in the inner city like I do there's no doubt my house would get tagged if I took a hard line stance like that.

Speaking of which, did you guys see where L.A. has passed a law that says new homes must have an anti-graffiti surface, or the home owner has to pledge to remove the graffiti within seven days. If they don't remove it they get fined. I don't think I've ever heard of a law that punishes the victim. This has got to be a first for the American States?

That is one very stupid law. I think the kids who get caught spraying grafiti are the ones who should be punished, IN ADDITION to having to clean it up or paint it over.
