We’re planning a big event at our house. Catering, florist, the works! Since Halloween is on a Saturday this year we figured it would be perfect but a lot of our friends have little kids so they might want Saturday to themselves to spend the day preparing for Trick or Treating.
So which would you prefer – a Halloween party ON Halloween or maybe the day before (Devil’s night) or the weekend before?
If you have the time – give the reason for your choice. THANKS GUYS!!!

I’m going to 6 Halloween parties so far this year. One on Halloween, one before Halloween, the weekend before all weekend and the Saturday before that. Lord help me…

When I was a teenager, on Hallowe’en.
Now, Friday or Saturday before/after. Even without having kids, I want to be at home to give out candy.

I have kids and would turn down parties on Halloween because Im just not missing walking around our neighborhood with them. I would go if it was the night before.

I voted ON Halloween but I’m only in my 20’s and childless so Darling Husband and I don’t have other obligations

I voted on Halloween because I’m in Australia and I’ve always wanted to attend a proper, good old Halloween party.
For those with kids, how late do they go Trick or Treating? Are they able to do that earlier in the night, say, right after sunset and then have “party time” for the parents later in the evening? That way they will only need to organise a sitter for a few hours as opposed to half a day.

I would go to a Halloween party any day of the year!!

I have kids… So no, I wouldn’t go to a party on halloween. But before kids, I would absolutely have gone.

I wouldn’t go to a party on Halloween, but I would the day before. We want to be with dd while she goes trick or treating. It’s also my birthday, and Darling Husband likes to have my family over for supper and cake.

I don’t have kids…so I’d go to a Halloween party the day of, the day before, July, whenever…lol
We usually do a big Halloween party. I find that our friends with kids have no issues coming to a party on Halloween night. Here, it seems trick or treating is done SO much earlier than it was when I was a kid. I remember trick or treating at night…nowadays it’s a rush to go before the sun goes down. Because it’s done and over with so much earlier for the kids, it’s easy for our friends to get a sitter to stay after the kids go to bed, and then they’ll come out for the party later.

I don’t have kids so it wouldn’t matter. Check in your area though…. I know where my parents live they have “official” trick or treating times and I think it’s usually Saturday or Sunday afternooon before it gets dark.

My husband and I love Halloween and are super excited to give out candy for the first time at our new house, so we probably would turn down any invitation for that night. The night before or the weekend before/after would be perfect, though!

We’re having a Halloween party this year too! It’s a Saturday, how perfect?!?
I’m co-hosting with my friend, Darling Husband and I do not have kids, but everyone else in our circle does.
So we’re having the ‘adult’ party later on, after trick or treating. Everyone will be able to take the kiddies out (and I’ll be able to hand out candy- my fave!) then we’ll go back to her house, put the kids to bed, and start the adult fun! Woohoo! I haven’t been to a house Halloween party for years, and my Pinterest board is over-flowing! I can’t wait!

I chose the weekend before because between Fiance and I we have 4 kids who love to go trick or treating. We have a pumpkin carving party at my parents house every year on the sunday before Halloween. That way people can have their pumpkins decorated/carved for Halloween.

I would have no problem going to a party on Halloween (I don’t have kids and we don’t get trick-or-treaters). We are throwing a Halloween party and will probably do it the weekend before because we invite a lot of people who have kids. I want the kids to be able to go trick-or-treating and come to my party too.
