    I think the mailbox drop is a great idea

    Halloween seems to grow in popularity each year over here. It's a bit of fun, I'm sure the kids love it.

    We have lots of cute primary school aged kids in our street and they were out in force last year. We'll stock up on some goodies again for them this year. Bless 'em!

    I think it's great fun for the kids . We didn't do our street last year, but went around the school. So many houses across the road from school were decorated and the owners dressed up, was so much fun!

    ^^I agree with this

    And doing the mail drop on the Monday before sounds reasonable.

    Have fun

    I'm a bit of a Grinch about Halloween, as it's a seasonal thing (as evidenced by the pumpkin motif) and is actually supposed to be celebrated on 29th April in the Southern Hemisphere, as the end of harvest, and the beginning of the descent into the darkness (winter) remembering the dead, all souls eve etc.

    Anyways..... Good for a laugh for the kids, and I've been known to get out there with the kids
    Yes but it's still fun!! We should be having Easter Eggs at Halloween! (Well, any time is a good time for Easter Eggs...)

    We've never really done it, but I do keep a pack of sharepack lollies and chocolates, Natural Confectionery Company do the dinosaurs in small packs I think maybe 8 small packs in the big pack, and just the Cadbury chocolates. Last year it was pretty big in our street, so my daughter was allowed to find a dress up costume to put on and greet people at the door. I sat out the front with her and she handed them out. It's never been that big before, so I'll get some more this year because we ran out whereas normally we get maybe 2 small groups of kids at our door. They all look so cute in their costumes

    I live in a street where lots of kids visit on Halloween. I tie orange/black balloons to my letterbox, so they don't miss out on lollies. I went out of my way back in 2009 and carved a pumpkin and put a candle in it and got lots of positive comments about it. It's hugely celebrated overseas and I think it will gradually become more main****** here in Australia. I think if children are supervised there isn't an issue, but it's the odd teenager/adult/kid here and there that act up and be stupid.

    my DH is American so we have been celebrating halloween every year - bigger now that our oldest is 5.

    we decorate the house & front garden for the whole of October so the street knows we're open for trick or treaters lol. I can't wait for this year!!!

    DS will be 3 in October so I think a perfect age to start celebrating Halloween , so this year we are having our first Halloween Party! I've already started planning the food and buying decorations!
