    There is some of that, but also there are things like my kids went trickstering with their cousins in their hood, not ours, for a little while before they went to a church thing with the cousins.

    Personally, I wish it were moved to the last Saturday in October as opposed to the 31st always because it is really time consuming for working parents to have to do all that crap, worry about dinner, etc. I think that is the reason a lot of people just don't seem to give out candy anymore--too much of a hassle on weekdays.

    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
    Not offensive at all and when my kids were small, no to strangers houses either. Now my kids take their kids to where they work for all the Halloween party and treats. But I always have a lot of candy and stuff for the grandkids when they drop by, either on Halloween or after.
    This Reform Party member thinks it is high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first and their political party further down the line. But for way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.

    well that must be a area to area thing, exactly one of the tings i was talking about, because around here the individual municipalities always pick the day and its always a weekend and not always actual Halloween.

    I don't celebrate holidays and I think Halloween is silly and gross. How is it offensive?

    The only time we pick a day is when it is on Sunday and they decide whether or not to do it on Sunday or Monday or Saturday, but it usually ends up being Monday in that scenario because apparently there might be an outbreak of drunk driving between 6-8pm that has never happened before if trick or treaters are out at that hour on a saturday.

    Well growing up I can remember some Christian groups, (including some catholic bishops being against Halloween for its non Christian/pagan origins. I am sure we have all heard that it is satanic from at least one group of people. Today I would expect fundie Christian and probably muslim groups in north America being opposed to it, with at least some openly trying to stop its celebration

    Answered no to the poll. To your other question. Yes. I go with them, I check their candy to make sure its OK. (as much as I can anyways). Of course I live in an area where the biggest crime we have around here is grafetti and punk kids calling in bomb threats to our schools just so they don't have to go to school.
