Is your child participating? Do they enjoy it?

Nope.  Brady doesn't understand it, nor does he eat candy, so we don't do anything.

Yes we trick or treat, yes he enjoys it. But I'm not sure how he will do this year with noises or lights. He seems to be very picky about sounds and what really bothers him.

We dress her up and go to grandmas to pass out candy

I don't think we will be doing anything this year. We used to. Just not sure yet.

My son loves Halloween! They do a parade at school and we trick or treat in our neighborhood.

 Lina loves to go. She wants to be a pirate this year. She won't get to eat much if any of the candy and she won't do any kind of haunted house but does like the trick or treating part.

They enjoy dressing up at home and running around, but only my oldest and one of my girls actually understand it all.  Once we actually go out my son with ASD freaks out and can't eat most of the candy anyway (peanut allergy), and my one daughter can not eat any at all but looks cute in her stroller.  We may just take 2 out this year and have the other 2 dress up and stay home handing out candy to others.

We'll go to Trunk or Treat at church and go around trick or treating. They are currently studying the Party City costume ads to decide what to dress up as. At this moment, my 6 year old wants to be Dracula and my 3 year old wants to be Superman.

My son changes his mind daily about trick or treat.  It is up to the minute before we leave whether he wants to or not.  He likes to hand out candy so we will do that instead of trick or treating.

Our school is just no fun. They say no to Halloween parade. That was best part of school. When I was little.
