    Package Car bites the big one on Halloween, but getting candy is nice. Do you take, or no? I only go for the chocolate.

    When I used to work over Halloween and we would still be out delivering during ToT, I would usually just walk up with a group of kids and do the ToTing with them. Customer got a good chuckle out of it most times and I got a piece of candy or two while I was at it and I was breaking the flow of them expecting little kids.

    So, my advice is to just go with the flow. Just be a little more cautious.

    My center usually gives in, and puts on extra routes. In my opinion, getting drivers in early on Halloween should be a top priority.

    Plus being a Friday helps out a lot since that's the only day half the center finds their way back to the building ahead of me. LOL

    I make sure to get all of my residentials done before it starts getting dark.

    When I get home I put out my "get lost" door mat turn off the outside light and lock the door.
