My hubby and I have a debate going on about Trick-or-Treating, and if the traditions vary from one part of the country to another. Please answer the poll, and then list which part of the country you live in. Thanks!!

we live in california, we don't hand out candy and we both take her trick or treating.  it wouldn't matter where we live..we dont' hand out candy because we live at the end of an unfestive cul-de-sac.  no one came TT to our house last year and we ended up with tons of candy.  never again!

Well...we have been separated for a few years.  But, he comes over and we both take the kids...then he goes home and the kids and I hand out candy.  When we were together....his whole family would come over.  The men would stay home and cook a huge dinner and pass out candy...and the moms and kids would go trick or treating.  Colorado..

The "community organizer" cant bitch when the community starts to organize.  Even when we start to organize against him!

Well, this year my husband is working on Halloween night, so my inlaws are going to come over and eat dinner with us, then they'll stay at the house and hand out candy while I take the kids out trick or treating with some friends of mine and their kids.

We live out in the country in Arkansas, so we don't hand out candy, but we take the kids to town to T Or T.  We go to our church, all the grandparents, then we meet up with their best friend and go around his neighborhood.  So the kids get a LOT of candy...and then when they finally go to bed, Jared and I pick out our favorite candy...they never know :D

my husband hides in his office with all of the lights off because he sucks

my neighbors and i take the kids together (a group of 8-10 kids and 3-5 adults, depending on the year)

my husband knows that my son enjoys TOT with the neighbors, but he has also offered to take us to his parent's neighborhood and the 3 of us would go together.... we're not really worried about the candy though, more or less the memories

My fiance plans on drinking beer in the garage and handing out candy...the get all into decorating the garage. People always think its a haunted house. So he will be handing out candy and scaring kids while I take our daughter around our neighborhood. His younger brother(17) and sister(5) and his mother will probably go with us though. We will see = )

There are very few that go Door to door here (Cheyenne WY) We tend to get so much snow that it's too cold.  This is our eldest's 3nd Halloween and our youngest 1st and we haven't had a dry Halloween yet. Most take the kids to the mall. We have gone together in years past but this year I will take the girls to the Mall myself with some of my girlfriends and then we might go by the grandparents.


You know your from Wyoming when you desine Halloween costums to fit over a snow suit....
