If you had a young child would you let he or she go trick or treating this year ?

Well here comes grumpy me, no Halloween this year and I couldn’t be happier. Folks dump kids into our cul-de-sac by the dozens. Probably 1 out of 10 will thank you for it. Lights out for me!

In the 15+ years we have been here, no trick or treaters. However, there have been some changes in the neighborhood; there are now at least two little "curtain climbers" and a couple of youngsters. Maybe this year we will buy a bag of goodies. If nobody shows up, I can treat myself!

Absolutely. Read my response above and you will know why. The chances of viruses being transmitted on packaging of any sort is extremely remote. If no one is meeting face-to-face there's no issue.

We had that issue for a while at our old house. Most of them seemed to come from the main streets in town. I didn't care-I loved it! The more kids the merrier.

1974 was the last year we saw a trick or treater. We lived in town back then and would have lots of kids.
Kids would be better off without all the candy/sugar anywayz. And the times we could safely let the kids consume home made goodies is long past.
I see both small towns near me don't recommend the door to door thing this year because of the virus but have several church and or city service building set up and have proper covid-19 clothed adults do the passing out of package goodies donated from local merchants and donated monies for buying them.

We are camping this year at our local county park for Halloween weekend. We are hoping that the park does not put a stop to the public coming in to trick or treating. We have candy and decorations for the site and are ready to go. Luckily we are SC also, which is a state that his less restrictions than most others.

We live in a rural part of town, and we don't get trick or treaters at home, besides two neighbor kids. So we are hoping to see some while camping!

We've done Halloween for years, we normally get around 150 kids. Not this year though, some will take precautions, but many will not. This could end up being a super spreader event. I want this plague to be over, the way we're carrying on, it'll go on for years!

I haven't bothered with it for many years. The celebration has unsavory origins.
