When we were kids, it was nearly unthinkable to consider spending a Halloween night doing anything but trick-or-treating. We always went together in a group and our parents always checked our treat bags for “unsafe” candy, but we continued the tradition well into our tween years.
These days, however, concerns about safety, the dreaded flu and even nutrition have more and more parents requesting that their little ones spend the night at a neighborhood party, family get-together or other social event in lieu of trick-or-treating.
We’re curious—are your kids participating in this time-honored tradition, or have you made alternative plans? What’s your family plan for Halloween? Has trick-or-treating become passe? You tell us!
