Just curious to see how many of you will do the whole trick-or-treating thing with your kids. Also, (though this may be a better question for the Statistics forum) does anyone know how many families in the state of California go trick-or-treating?

I definitely would take my daughter trick-or-treating!! But, she's 19 now, so she will likely object.

Perhaps you should have worded it - how many of you that have small children will take them trick or treating?

If I had small kids and if I lived in america, then I would certainly go trick-or-treating with my kids. It sounds like great fun

When my daughter was that age I always took her trick or treating. I'd even dress up myself.

When I was a kid, I went trick-or-treating with my friends. We would have considered it a drag to have our parents along with us, nor did my parents think of it. Maybe they went with me the first time. We lived in a traditional walkable small-city neighborhood of single-family houses with sidewalks, away from major traffic arteries, so we didn't need to be driven around. Nor was there nearly as much concern about crime and personal safety as there is today.

Trick or treating is something that happens on halloween. Little brats beg for food and if you don't give it to them, they trash your house, your yard, and your car. Or, if you don't give them enough food, or you give them food they don't like (such as frozen broccoli), they trash your house, your yard, and your car. Or, if they don't like you (because you happen to be their parents), they trash your house, your yard, and your car.

And, just in case you don't know what halloween is, it's the best night of the year for your girlfriend to dump you. The next morning you wake up kind of depressed about breaking up, but thinking you'll somehow find the strength to go on, only to find that during the night, someone trashed your house, your yard, and your car.

This guy explains it all in a way most PF members can understand, seeing as how he seems to be even more inept at relationships than most of us.

You and your wife should be a cow! You can flip a coin to see who gets to be the head...

you rarely see a trick-or-treater here anymore. they mostly go to planned halloween events. everyone just got too afraid, and once some orgs and churches picked up the slack, the routine has changed.

Last year, Halloween was on the same night as a world series game. No kids were out except for ours. Eerie, and kind of a downer. It was also cold and dreary. On the plus side, we ended up with a heck of a lot of chocolate!
