My goal, simple as it may sound, is to not turn the lights off and sit quietly pretending to not be here on halloween (as I did last year, my first year living on my own where I had to worry about it), but rather to actually answer the door to offer candy. Reminder to self: being terrified is good, it makes them think their costume is working.

A secondary related goal is to somehow avoid eating all of the candy before halloween.

Well, that was easy. Last year when I turned the lights off and hid someone still knocked on the door anyway. This year I had the lights on and sat waiting, and nobody came. Either it's the lack of decorations or I've developed a really bad reputation such that parents keep their kids away from me. ;) (One would think that in an apartment complex it couldn't be a matter of lack of kids around.)
