      Is Trick or Treating no more?

      I'm not saying by any regard that Halloween itself is ending anytime soon. In fact, the holiday is thriving as people can feel comfortable doing cosplay in the public and partying until midnight. I was on the train today and I saw three different people dressed as witches. But I get the feeling that they're not going door to door with buckets like it's 2005 again. Instead I feel like much of the Halloween related festivities has transitioned to parties instead in themed restaurants or private parties in people's houses. At least that's the case here in the city.

      Are you still getting doorbell alarms and kids going Trick or Treat before taking a handful of candy?

      Or have you not seen anybody yet?

      My street is pretty empty, definitely more empty than when I was a child. Back then, my street was so full of kids and parents and oh it was so much fun. What happened to that?

      Seriously, I think the adults celebrate it more than the kids these days. We've seen the number of kids on our street go way down; I think a lot of them are visiting "trunk or treat" locations instead.

      I mean for me at least, I've gotten old. It's definitely just turned into the partying.. if we get dressed up at all to go out.

      Beyond that in Canada anyway, it was below freezing today, so if anyone took their kids out it was before 7pm (before sunset) and over with by nightfall, and likely small areas, or trunk and treat like the above mentioned.

      It doesn't feel like it used to, but that could be more to with me aging, and less to do with society falling out of spirit. Parents seem to have found easier ways to get their kids to experience Halloween without the waddling around with heavy bags, in snowpants so kudos to them.

      Re: Is Trick or Treating no more?

      There haven't been many trick or treaters in my neighborhood, but they've been steadily going down over the years. We actually didn't get anyone this time, though I'm not sure if it's because it's cold, wet, and a little rainy here or because I live in a mostly Hispanic neighborhood. My family and I tend to buy what we like anyway, so it's not a loss. That just means we get all of the king/standard size candy to ourselves.

      My mom once had to carry three full plastic bags of candy plus I had my bucket. Candy wasn't something my family bought often because it was unnecessary spending and not healthy, but Halloween was the exception because everything was free. I choose not to eat candy often now unless it's the gourmet stuff lol

      Re: Is Trick or Treating no more?

      I'd say it depends on the neighborhood. The one I live in has mostly old people who don't really care about it, while the one my brother's friend lives on is more what you'd expect and then some.
