Are Halloween times shorter?

I seem to remember trick-or-treat times being much longer when I was a kid. In my area they only have it two hours, 6-8. Do you think Halloween times have been shortened? Do you wish it was longer?

  • I would like to know why they set a time anyways!?! When I was a kid (25 too) we went when it got dark, and kept going until we could go nomore......If my kids want to keep going, and there are lights still on, I am not gonna stop them! these kids are weak though, they start complaining quick. me and my siblings would go and go and go....I guess I give my kids so much candy that its not that exciting for them....sigh

  • Well to tell you how behind the times I am, I didn't know they set times. I just thought the kids weren't going out as long, lol. All my kids are grown and when they and myself were young we went as long as we wanted.

  • I've never heard of set times! I think most kids go to the fall fests or the mall though. So they are just not as many kids out.

  • I've never been anywhere where there were set times, other than it started a little before sunset and went until we couldn't walk anymore. It's the Halloween fests and stuff that are on time limits, usually.
