I can totally identify with this flash. Where I'm from there's always a bunch of church things going on that they try to get kids to come to, and have musical "entertainment" and stuff like that.
And they actually give CANDY there. But it's all completly anti-halloween because it's an evil holiday etc etc etc.
A lot of people around here are like that, and will even leave their light on just so kids will come up and they can tell them there is no candy and why. Idiots.
One time, me and my older sister and her friends trick or treated this guy's house in the middle of nowhere .. he was like "Oh, I'm so sorry I didn't think anyone would come to my house."
He invites us all in saying he'll find something. Next thing you know, he's got 8 kids and teenagers and a few parents in his kitchen, digging in this huge deep freeze and giving us pizzas and pot pies. It was the most awesome trick or treat, ever.
