I love halloween. I especially loved it as a kid. One of my favorite houses to visit when I was a kid was a house where they would play a prank on you. The Mom would answer the door with the candy. While you were distracted, the Dad would leap out of the bushes in a Gorilla suit and scare the heck out of you.
I wasn't alone in enjoying that house. It was fun. This page is about trying to bring some more of that style of fun back to trick or treating.
I also wanted some way to discourage a recent trend in my neighborhood. It seems like 15-20 year olds have decided that they deserve some free candy. I don't agree. I think that they deserve a pillowcase full of hose-water.
