Ha! I protected my candy like it was gold! I grew up with three siblings so we all learned very early on that it's best to hide your trick-or-treat loot and only bust it out when you were absolutely sure you were alone so that nobody could see where it's hiding place was :) I didn't just hide it from my siblings--I had to hide it from my sneaky dad too because he was always stealing everybody's Snickers! :lol:

First of all, I had so much candy I couldn't possibly gobble it all down in one night. My Halloween candy often lasted until the week of Thanksgiving. Secondly, we were completely forbidden to eat any candy until our parents checked for razor blades, neadles or other harmful things. (but I often snitched a few pieces anyway) 3rdly, there was allways the 'junk' candy, which we didn't like. Licorice and various other kinds were usualy relagated to the 'unwanted' candy jar where my father and oldest brother often dived into.

It's hilarious, but my younger sister and I allways faught over the 'good stuff' like Snickers, Reeses or Nestles Crunch bars, and my father and oldest brother use to fight over the licorice. Jamee and I would toss a coin or play 'Rock, Paper, Scisors" for the atove mentioned candy bars, when there were extras, and my father and oldest brother would do exactly the same thing for the licorice.

I'd have some when I got it home, and I'd save some too. Always keeping it hidden from my candy-thieving sister! :D

I used to sit down and put everything in piles; all the same together. Then, I was allowed to have 3 or 4 pieces that night. The rest was put away by my Mother, and I could only have a few at a time.

I always had candy left in February and gave the last of it to my dog. Candy was never, ever what it was about for me. It was just a sign of a good Halloween if I brought home a lot of it. I was totally about the costuming and the street and the night.

That said, the chocolate wouldn't go begging, and there were a few hard candies I liked, too. But eventually, after two or three weeks, I would lose interest in it, and my mother would start picking around in it. Whatever she didn't want, the dog eventually got.

I was an only child, so I don't have those memories of kids snitching each other's candy, or swapping. My own kids would swap out on Halloween night.

There were simular rules in our house. I was pretty 'slick' about hiding myself a little "stash" in my toy box, though. My sister and I each had our own toy boxes, and it was more orless an unwritten rule that we never went to each others toy boxes. It was great when my brothers Jack and Jim married and moved out of the house. I got my own room, so I had all kinds of neat palces to "stash" the 'good stuff'

Then in 7th grade, I felt I was too old, felt self consience about ToT, and I quite ToTing. Being the "mean little monster' that I was, I would 'swipe' candy from my younger sister when she wasn't looking. (narf narf)

I used to eat a little of it when I got back home, the rest I would eat over the next week. The pieces I didn't like I gave to my Mum & Dad.

I tried to make mine last but usually had it finished within a week.

I had a (sad) friend whose parents confiscated his and doled it out a few pieces at a time in his school lunches.

It would last months and got a little creepy around New Years.
