I remember one Halloween, I went up to one door and said the Trick Or Treat Smell My Feet schtick and the old dude of the house slammed the door on me. No treats! How rude! Other adults in the neighborhood laughed at that saying. Go figure!

Why?

The only reason I got a lot of candy from ppl was because I had amazing costumes no lame ones ... Ones that were scary not cute now adays ppl dress as princesses it's Halloween dress as a witch for goodness sake it's not a beauty pageant lol

And no matter how you are dressed you could still say please and thank you. And kids who do (at my house) get extra.

Sorry, I find it creepy that even 22% says yes. I just give everyone the same amount of candy. Why does one kid deserve more candy because he has a better costume? As for politeness, usually the kids just say "Trick or treat!" I can't really judge how polite they are by that.
ttsmom143

If you can't tell if the children are polite then maybe you just aren't paying enough attention! My children always say "trick-or-treat, please" and when they receive a treat they always say thank you! Yes every time because I am close enough to remind them if they happen to forget!

As far as a better costume, some teenagers don't even bother, they just throw on a hoodie & hold out their backpack for candy. Anyone wearing an actual costume has a better costume than that!

You have to give the teens candy so they don't egg your house, but you don't have to give them as much as the other kids. Nobody knocks on doors in this neighborhood, but where I lived previously, I'd give one piece to the teen beggars and more to everyone else.

I do give candy to all who come, even the teenagers w/o costumes, bc yes I know they will egg the house.

I believe homemade costumes are the best because most of time they had more thought put into them , and I believe everyone should get treated equally and not to be judged because you never know if that child's parents can afford a nice looking costume maybe that's why he or she has a homemade one or doesn't have one at all.

Politeness will get any trick-or-treater an extra treat at my house. I'm not looking at the costumes so much ... but if they don't push and shove, say "please" or "trick-or-treat" nicely, say "thank you," help the smaller kids ... yeah, they get extra treats.

@ Joyfulsong...only Jehovah Witnesses believe that...so I'm assuming you're one of "those" door-to-door spammers. Yet you don't believe in children going door to door for candy in a fun holiday...hmm.

Aside from that, I do give extra candy to the kids with manners. I don't judge costumes, simply put some parents can afford more than others, so I do not judge based on costumes. (I also give less to the "teenagers" who are clearly a little old to be trick or treating, I like to give most the candy to the little ones)

Growing up, I had one older neighbor who would tell all the teenagers he was out of candy. Technically, he wasn't lying as he would give the younger kids pennies for their piggy banks.

It's not only Jehovah Witnesses who believe that - what a small minded view. There are degrees of faith in any denomination. Shoot, I've known methodists, lutherans, baptists, catholics, unitarians, who all thought halloween was a numbing of the mind to the symbols of evil - and known some of the same who have listed halloween as their favorite holiday of the year.

So putting off that view on only the Jehovahs is silly.

I call them the "J-Dubs" lol. And you're right. They find no shame in showing up at my door on Easter of all days, but won't let their kids knock on random doors on Halloween for candy. So sad. I feel so sorry for those J-Dub kids. They will never know the joys of Halloween, Christmas, or even birthday parties. :(

You really shouldn't give special treatment to kids with costumes that look better to me or just inconsiderate whenever. It reminds of me of when Charlie Brown from the Peanuts only got rocks when he went trick or treating. People are way too hard on him!

That was a very hilarious comparison on a somber discussion. Lol. Actually, remembering some of the things my parents used to buy and put effort into when I was little for Christmas and Halloween, and learning the price of those things later, actually makes me feel a little bad. Our family did not have alot. Though I don't say anything b/c they probably shared the happiness and it may come off ungrateful, I DO NOT think people should be estimating the amount of candy based on costume. I think most kids have little or no control over that anyway! Just because your kid wants a $25 costume, if you only have $18 for food, are you going to buy that 1 day-easily outgrown outfit or feed your family.

I have to say that it does drive me nuts when the 15-21 crowd start showing up - dressed regularly (some "might" be a bit less lazy and have a mask - usually sitting on top of their heads <like you do with sunglasses> not ACTUALLY on), with a large pillow case. We don't turn anyone away - as it's not up to us to decide how old is too old to be trick or treating - but it does drive me a bit nuts - as they show up at my door, after I've walked around our large neighborhood for a few hours. By then I'm exhausted and let the hubby continue with his candy delivery. =}

we give everyone tons of candy but those who are extra polite or extra creative (like HOMEMADE)or just plain tickle our fancy gains an extra pick or two for their whole group. I NEVER single out ONE in a group.. that's mean. but from one group to the next then yes I might hand out differently.

I answered yes because of the politeness part of the question. I don't judge costumes at all. One year my son wore his suit and a fedora - he was a gangster. He put it together himself. I felt a little bad because he didn't look like he was even wearing a costume. but after we were heading home he smiled at me and said, "I had the best costume of anyone." "Best costume" is in the eye of the beholder.
