    I actually would have never thought to ask these two questions until reading some random comments here but ill save my comments for post 2 in the threads.
    The other question is, Do you let your kids trick or treat at Strangers houses? http://www.debatepolitics.com/off-to...rs-houses.html
    "Strangers" - all this tells me is that people don't know anyone in their community these days. Everyone keeps to their selves too much. When the trick-or-treat concept of Halloween became more popular people *did* know a lot of individuals in town and they could be trusted.

    It has happened before, but there is nothing to compare it to now.

    While i agree thats not always true, i know everybody in my immediate neighborhood and being involved in coaching and youth programs many outside of it but in some areas its just not possible to know everybody.

    But again in general i do agree the old school sense of neighborhood/community has dropped off.

    I think its sad some people have never experienced that.

    Halloween takes place on one of my sacred holidays. People dressing up just adds to its unique flavor, though it's not something I partake in.

    From a rural area and no one feels that there are any strangers.

    Yes my children trick or treat at strangers' homes and no I do not find Halloween offensive. Annoying now that I am the candy giver outer, but not offensive.
