My mom was at the door, and she said that she didn't have any candy yet. We should've given them rocks though!

People with costumes and Halloween spirit you should give candy. But people without costumes and who are only in it for the candy, give them a bag with a toothbrush, toothpaste, dental floss and a note that says "Candy rots your teeth.". :lol:

Again, this relates to two points that I made in the General Halloween discussions. One about honoring a tradition, and the other about "new fangled" ideas being bothersome to some older people. I would hate it if I couldn't give out 'Trick or Treat" candy, but there is a difference between honoring the Halloween tradition of Trick or Treat, and just begging from door to door. If you don't wear a costume, and just go looking for free candy, you're a begger, pure and simple. That leads me to my other point about 'new fangled' ideas that circumvent tradition. A lot of older people don't seem to embrace the Halloween or other holiday spirit any more, because the love of tradition is not there. When I was a kid on the South Side of Chicago, you NEVER, and I mean NEVER saw a TORer withoug a costume. Those costumes ranged from a grocery bag with crayon drawn faces on them to some very elaborate works of art, but EVERYONE wore a costume, and NOBODY came to the door withoug a costume. I personaly find it upsetting when some one comes to the door in jeans and a t-shirt, and in many cases d on't even have a Halloween ToT bag. It's a total disregard for tradition, and that's the reason why I and so many other older people tend to act like "party poopers" on holidays.
