No so long time ago...we used to all go out on a night like this to the neighborhood with all the kids to trick-or-treat. (We'd go out early, leave a bowl of candies by the front door and a note welcoming trick-or-treaters to help themselves with them.) Sometimes we would carry Miriam because she'd be too tired going up and down the hills. When my kids had enough candies they would stop going to the houses. Then they would come home and see who wins in getting the most candies. Our kitchen table would be full of candies but on that Halloween night they get to eat maybe five (maximum) candies and put the rest away. They'd drink apple cider or hot chocolate or milk and then just hang out. I miss those days.
