heehee. i failed to answer my own question!
i have some creepy music and sounds playing. (danse macabre <saintsaens> and lots of other classical scariness) (danse macabre is my fave piece of classical music, just fyi...)
change the outside light to a green bulb. put the candies i a fabulous paier mache pumpkin thatlooks really real. and i greet them in costume. scary living dead kind of thing. i usually do that costume and them something else for any parties i might be attending.
