    That sounds like the real place to go T-o-T. Only the hardcore would dare which apparently your town doesn't have any.

    Rolling Rock is good for a nasty headache and killer hangover, iron city isn't fit to flush

    Seven years in this "new" house, and this year we finally got our first trick or treater. A little guy in a ninja costume; very polite and cute kid. Good thing we buy a bag of candy bars every year "just in case."

    One of my in-laws said that she gave out religious tracts, and was shocked (shocked!!) that they were just torn up and left at the end of the driveway. She decided that it was due to kids being driven in from other communities, and if they don't like it they don't have to show up there

    While I find it rude to litter somebody's property, it's also rude to push Jesus on trick-or-treaters. It's not a holiday that's about Jesus, and if she doesn't like it, she should shut off her lights and/or put up a sign that says "no candy." Easy peasy.

    We actually got a bunch of kids this year, some years it’s zero. Plus some high school kids just walking home from school, no real effort or get up. I just unloaded a basket of candy on them, they looked shocked actually. “hope you like Snickers”I said to one kid as I gave him about 20.

    I should dress up as a Mormon and ride my bike up to her porch to trick-or-treat.

    What exactly do Mormon's look like ?, I mean differently from say a Jehovah ?.

    Mitt Romney comes to mind...... but he just looks like a rich, white, Republican politician.

    Awesome pumpkin!! I love carving at least one every year, though I stick with small/medium. Love roasting the seeds.

    Envious of all the visitors you get.

    Pretty much the same. Not sure if its cliche, but its common to see Mormon missionaries dressed in dress shirts with a tie and black pants riding bikes.

    In my neck of the woods JW men more often than not wear a suit or jacket and tie. Women are usually in office attire. JW's frequently have a young person (early to mid teen) with them as they do their "Pioneering". Both Mormons and JWs do their missionary work in pairs. Saw 2 Mormon women comparing notes with 2 Mormon men the other day and the women had very long skirts, didn't notice if their blouses were white. I'm not sure how they kept their skirts out of the chain but they were riding old fashioned looking "girls bikes".

    We got married...my wife was confirmed as Catholic the following spring...Not a week after, we had some Jehovah's Witnesses stop by, as I was pulling in the driveway after work. They saw the cross hanging off my mirror and struck up a conversation about my beliefs, and what I'd think about their beliefs. They were dumbstruck when I told them that we were pretty devout, and that my wife had just gotten confirmed a few days earlier. They bid me adieu and went along their way.
