I used to have the lights on in the past, but at most we would only get one or two trick or treaters. So the lights have been off on Halloween ever since.
I sure hope this won't come back to haunt me one day. lol
We've been turning the light off since last Halloween. There were way too many kids pounding on our door every year, we can't even sit still to eat dinner, and a lot of the kids weren't even from our neighborhood.
