  • you can't take them in one of your own neighborhoods? I always find it frustrating that so many people drive into our neighborhood to trick or treat. It becomes so crowded. I just don't get the point of why they don't stay by their houses too. Our city also has a couple "Safe Street" events, where kids don't trick or treat in a real neighborhood, so it's safer. Like at the mall or some model home communities do it. Do you guys have an option like that?

  • One of us will stay home to answer the door. We live in the woods on two acres so we get about 10 trick or treaters.
    Our three year old will go with her cousins in ther neighborhood. It is a nice cul de sac.

  • We always go trick or treating on 2 maybe 3 streets where my parents live, the houses are just a driveway away and close to the sidewalk. We don't go in our own neighborhood becasue the driveways are pretty much a quarter of a mile long and houses are further apart. It would take an hour to get to 5 houses.
