Trick or Treating HOURS!

zwee75 zwee75
One of the coolest things I discovered about my town after moving here a few years ago is that they have established hours for when the kiddies can go trick or treating. I love this. Have you heard of this?

I can't remember what the hours are where I live, but I do know there are hours that kids can go trick or treating in.

Yep you can find the hours on the local news paper website for here.

I think ours are around 3:30 PM to 7:00 PM. Ridiculous, as far as I am concerned. Especially as they keep these hours even when Halloween falls on a weekend. I remember as a kid Trick or Treating ALL day on weekend Halloween.

We have that where I live. I think you can only stay out until 9?

I think I've always heard of those. Even when I was a child, there was a set day and hours. It makes sense in a way since you don't want those giving out candy to have to wait from 5pm until midnight for those who are all trick or treating at different hours.

We didn't have them growing up. It's from 5 to 8 here, even if Halloween falls on a weekend.

Ours is 6-8 but most people start early and end late..I asked the cop that does the rounds during trick or treat one year and they said that they do it for the safety of the kids cuz there are more creeps out now then when we were kids.

we don't have "hours" per-se, but we do have a curfew that they have to be home by.

We don't have set hours but perhaps it's because people don't want their kids wandering the streets of Baltimore too late anyway, so they aren't out too late?

Honestly, it sounds pretty silly.

I had no idea that every town didn't have set hours! They even name the day in each school district along with the hours. Even when I was a kid that's the way it was.

some of the nice neighborhoods around town do this. we do not have a problem with people coming too late. But they are out long before it gets dark, and that gets me alittle angry.

Ive never heard of it and dont like the idea of being told when i can ask for candy

Well i dont agree with being able to tell people when they can trick or treat but i assume its common courtesy to stop knocking after 9:30. Once its past a certain hour i think its mean to keep bothering people

That's ridiculous. I also find it ridiculous that they changed when Day Light Saving's Time ends. Now, it's still completely bright out when kids are Trick-or-Treating.

Growing up, we never started Trick-or-Treating until it was dark. And then, we just went for as long as we could tolerate. One year, my best friend and I went to every house in the condominium complex we lived in, then we hit up the apartments next door, then the houses across the street, then the apartment complex across from there. We hit up even more houses on our way back home. The only reason we even headed home when we did was because our bags were getting really heavy and a lot of houses were out or candy. When we got home, we each weighed our bags. We had ten pounds of candy each. I think we had started at, like, seven or so, then got home at around eleven?

This past year, I went Trick-Or-Treating with my sister. Most houses wouldn't even open the door for us. We'd see someone walk by the door, then walk away. (I was twenty-one, and whilst my mom suggested I stop Trick-or-Treating once I turned eighteen, my sister likes me to go with her, and the first year I went with her, I didn't bring a bag and people kept giving me candy, anyway.) We'll probably still go this year, though. We've been trying to get our youngest sister to go with us, but she feels she's too old to be doing that. The younger one and I want to dress up as Ed, Edd, and Eddy, but we need the youngest to make it complete.

Sounds useful. Why does my dumbass of a town let the kids go bonkers that night? There's more destruction Halloween night then any other time!

I understand it's for kids' safety, but trick or treating starts way too early! When I worked 9-5 the trick treaters been and gone before I could get home to dole out the goods. Also,it would be nice if trick or treating ended with the freshman year of high school unless the older kids were escorting the little ones.
