Have you had lots of trick-or-treaters tonight? I haven’t heard any going by on my street and the doorbell only rang twice. However, I was occupied and couldn’t answer the door so I’ve had none. I wonder do the kids still tell jokes or ask riddles before getting their treats? I remember that when I was a girl, we worked on our “trick” for days before going out to collect our treats.
Several churches in the area have “Truck or Treat” events. I suppose this is partially a safety solution. You don’t have to worry about the kids getting in an accident on the streets or someone abducting them. It’s probably also safer for the adults handing out the treats. Sometimes the “kids” are as big as adults and there’s no way to know who is lurking behind the mask.
