Is anyone doing this “Trunk or Treat” thing?
I’d never heard of this as a kid (maybe it’s new or something), and I’m glad. Really, are your neighbors that scary that you can’t let them give candy to your kids?
When I was growing up, we went out trick-or-treating around the neighborhood every year (except when Halloween fell on a Sunday), and it was great fun! When we were too little to wander around the neighborhood ourselves, a parent went with us, and then we followed standard safety precautions regarding what kinds of treats we’d accept. I remember at least one year we went out trick-or-treating with a group of Mormon families, and just about every year we had a fun Halloween party in the ward (that didn’t compete with trick-or-treating).
Was I just in a strange ward, or has the policy changed in the past few decades?
