A CdA Halloween Tale

At The Slice blog, Paul Turner provides this tale from Maggie Bennett of Coeur d'Alene re: Halloween night:

“For the last 25 years, we have decorated our porch on Halloween with a Scary Guy made from an ugly mask and various clothing stuffed with newspaper. He sits on a bench with pumpkins, a spider and webs. This year a 5-year-old princess with blond ringlets came up on the porch with parents and siblings to trick-or-treat. I asked her how she liked my Scary Guy. With her arms folded over her chest, she said, 'I don't like him at all and I think you are mean!' The child's parents lurched into damage-control mode. And perhaps the fact that her bag of treats was already pretty full empowered the princess to speak freely." More here.

Question: Describe your Halloween evening. Did you give out much candy? Were you the target of a trick? What?
