I have difficulty answering the door on the best of days. When the sun is up and I can see. Halloween means strangers knocking and hollering at my door for a several hour stretch. It's not good for me.
edit--- correction in accordance with promise never to lie on forum. I've always lived in apartments, mostly. Trick 'r treaters have never knocked on my door. But they could though, and I fret about the possibility.
Halloween is also my brothers birthday so often times we have to stay in and do something with him even though he often ends up going out himself. It makes me kind of anxious because I hate answering the door and worry that if I don't then we'd get egged or something. It's the same with Christmas Carol-ers though, I guess, just less of the egg.
I get a ton of candy and hand out handfuls as I watch the shinning, this will be the first year in many moons I have not done this little ritual. I loved Halloween as a kid and I want to make sure that other young people can experience the fun I had so many years ago.
