We aren’t into it.  We don’t give out candy (don’t have the money to give candy away to random people).

I am so confused.  I never trick or treated on any day other than Halloween as a kid- no matter what day of the week it fell on. Earlier this week my boss kept asking me when trick or treating was and I was so confused- I reallyhad no idea people did it on other days.  Is this a regional thing at all?

I know a lot of people here are trick or treating tomorrow because we are in a very religious area and I think that people don’t want to celebrate Halloween (a pagan holiday) on a Sunday.

I’m so not into it. At all. As in right now I am sitting in my living room with the porch light out, the living room lights dimmed and the TV volume down low to trick them into thinking that no one is home. Laughing

@pansyshell- where in PA?  I am in the suburbs out of Philly, I have never gone or seen children go trick or treating any night other than actual Halloween, even if it is a weekday.

@MrsSaltWaterTaffy: Darling Husband and i actually asked ourselves if we should pass out candy this year since it falls on a Sunday. kinda feels weird to go to church in the am, and then pass out candy that night. but then again, technically tomorrow is “devil’s night” right?

anyway, last year was our first year in our home so we bought a TON of candy. and we only had like 30 kids come by. this year, we bought chocolate a couple weeks ago bcuz we had coupons…. and between Darling Husband, myself, and friends who’ve come by … we’re prolly gona have to re-stock before Sunday LOL.

we’ll see though, i’m not expecting a lot of kids in our neighborhood… but then again, knowing our luck, this year we’ll get slammed!

@Helstrong:  As for the regional-ness of when trick or treat is, when I lived in Ohio, no one trick-or-treated on the weekends–trick-or-treat night was never on halloween and only on weekdays.  

When I moved to Atlanta I learned everyone else does trick-or-treat on Halloween, no matter what day it falls on!  Here’s how my first halloween in Atlanta convo went:

Me: So guys, what night is trick-or-treat here?

My friends: Um, October 31st…

Me: No, I mean, I know Halloween is on October 31st, but when’s trick-or-treat??

My friends: on HALLOWEEN!

Me: *so confused* 

 

hahaha
