Happy Halloween, do kids still go trick or treating in US?

Postby Winston » Fri Oct 31, 2008 2:24 pm

Hi all,
Happy Halloween.

You know, back in the 80's all kids went trick or treating in the US. Then in the 90's, they started going less and less cause people were paranoid that some psycho out there was going to poison their kids.

What about nowadays in 2008? Do you still get many kids coming to your house for trick or treating? Or has it dwindled to almost nothing?

My little 6-year-old & 2-year-old cousins were out trick-or-treating with their dad a few hours ago. :-)

I used to go trick-or-treating when I was a kid, that was in the 90's, and all the kids in my neighborhood used to do that. I still think kids do trick or treating today. But that's my assumption.

Thankfully, last night didn't rain and the neighborhood kids had a blast out trick or treating. Compared to the 1980s, there were fewer homes decorated with Halloween stuff and inviting people in (home made haunted house type stuff), but the streets were still packed with large groups of kids.

Since my living room is on the 2nd floor, I got tired of running downstairs to hand out candy 20+ times. I just put the candy in a bag and hanged it at my door, LoL.
