    If the lights weren’t on, we didn’t go to that house.

    I’ve never been trick or treating, so uh, I have no clue.

    But if people only go to houses with decorations, then they wont be going to very many houses around here. I think theres maybe 4 houses on the surrounding streats with decorations.

    We only went to houses with the porch light or some sort of outside light on. Sometimes the older people on our street wouldn’t decorate, but they still handed out candy (: I think when we have kids and take them out trick or treating we’ll go by whether or not the houses have lights on.

    No decorations but the porch light was on? Definitely still hit that house. I’ve never come across a house that had no lights but had decorations.

    No lights and no decorations? Not going to knock on their door because they clearly don’t wish to participate.

    When I was a kid we hit up every house, lights on or off. None of this ending before sunset bullshit either. We started after dinner and went on until we had hit every house in the neighborhood. I used to come home with pillow cases full of candy.

    @allyfally:  Why have you never been trick or treating?

     

    In my neighborhood, we only went to the houses with lights on.  It was the rule — if the lights weren’t on, you don’t go to the house.  That was both from our parents and from other kids.

    We did not pay attention to decorations as “no candy here” but we did not knock at houses without their porchlights on. I mean, we tried sometimes, but usually no one answered. Eventually “trying” cut into our bottom line so we skipped them the following years.

    Back then when I used to trick or treat I would skip the scary houses and the ones with no lights on. The ones with the Halloween decorations were assumed to be candy friendly places.
