  • Heck yeah! I am so not buying into that whole "the sky is falling" crap. We are educated people who keep a clean house and really push the hand washing. My kids change clothes as soon as they get home from school and we carry hand sanatizer everywhere we go. I am not letting a microb ruin my kids Halloween.

  • how is it any different then going shopping?
    or going to work or school, or leaving your house at all?? i understand your view from one mommy to another, but you seriously cant be this freeked out about it. You have a better chance getting it going to out to eat at a resturant or fastfood place then going door to door for candy.

  • We will still go trick or treating. My children love halloween , I am not going to be a prisoner in my home over a flu virus. Thats not fair to anyone!

  • All of the mothers above are right...if you listen to everyhting that's said about the Flu then you may as well never leave your home. Ever. It's rediculous the way the media has blown this out of proportion. If you're worried about your children being safe for Halloween...then only take them to the houses you the people you know. That will take care of some of your fears.
