1. When do you buy candy for local trick-or-treaters?

2. When you buy Halloween candy (or if you were to buy it), would you be more likely to buy lower-priced candy that you didn’t particularly care for or candy you like that happened to cost a little more?

3. If you were in a mood for a scary movie to watch on Halloween night, which would you select?

4. Take the quiz: What should you be for Halloween?

5. Should trick-or-treating be regulated so that it is held on non-school nights and during hours that might help children avoid dangerous travel hours?

6. How do you feel about some churches scheduling “fall festivals” to replace Halloween because of the holiday’s dark origin?

1. When do you buy candy for local trick-or-treaters? About a week before. If I do it any sooner than that, it probably would be gone.

2. When you buy Halloween candy (or if you were to buy it), would you be more likely to buy lower-priced candy that you didn’t particularly care for or candy you like that happened to cost a little more? I buy whatevery my DH thinks is best. I try to get the good stuff though rather than the cheap stuff that nobody likes.

3. If you were in a mood for a scary movie to watch on Halloween night, which would you select? Halloween

4. Take the quiz: What should you be for Halloween? Candy Corn

5. Should trick-or-treating be regulated so that it is held on non-school nights and during hours that might help children avoid dangerous travel hours? NO!!! That just ruins the whole thing.

6. How do you feel about some churches scheduling “fall festivals” to replace Halloween because of the holiday’s dark origin? My church does that, and I like it but don't like it. It's nice for them to have a place to go that is safe and isn't dangerous and still get candy, but at the same time, the churches that make a big deal about it just goes way overboard. Kids don't know about it's dark orgin. All they care about is the candy. I think sometimes those adults forget about that.

1. When do you buy candy for local trick-or-treaters? The 30th or 31st, haha

2. When you buy Halloween candy (or if you were to buy it), would you be more likely to buy lower-priced candy that you didn’t particularly care for or candy you like that happened to cost a little more? I just get mini bags of chips, it's cheaper than candy.

3. If you were in a mood for a scary movie to watch on Halloween night, which would you select? I hate scary movies!

4. Take the quiz: What should you be for Halloween? A bumble bee! heehee

5. Should trick-or-treating be regulated so that it is held on non-school nights and during hours that might help children avoid dangerous travel hours? NO! It's no fun until it's after dark, and it wouldn't be the same if it wasn't actually on Halloween night!

6. How do you feel about some churches scheduling “fall festivals” to replace Halloween because of the holiday’s dark origin? Everyone has thier beliefs, so who am I to judge? And I'm sure some members of those churches still let thier kids dress up, or go trick or treating anyways. As long as the kids still get to have fun, I guess that's all that matters.
