Funny thread!

Actually, I had to take my kids out early, we started around 6:30 because I was going out at 8 and the sitter was coming around 7:30 so we had to be home by then. Otherwise, especially since it was a weekend night, we probably still would have started around 7 or 7:30, mostly because I don't like to be out in the dark with them if I can help it. And also the kids just can't wait any longer! But I did notice most kids started showing up right before 8 last night, and my oldest (9) did NOT want to go out as early as we did, he didn't think the trick-or-treating thing was very cool this time around...

There are traditional foods we serve at Thanksgiving too. The meat is one of the most important parts of the meal, but we're not going to tell you what that is either.

Don't tell anyone outside of the loop but I heard that Halloween will be on Oct 31st next year.

In all fairness, different areas of the country have Halloween at different times.

Hales Corners, Wisconsin had Trick or Treat last Sunday, still scratching my head on that one. Couple of my nieces went around and then intended on going again elsewhere later in the week.

This thread reminds me... as a child we always went once it was good and dark, so I was always confused as a child why the little girl on ET (Drew Barrymore) went during daylight hours...

That's fine, but seriously? Fussing because they feel left out of the "loop". What freaking loop? Call someone with kids if you really don't know. I'm just trying to understand what someone could have possibly gotten offended about.

I was more concerned about possible feedback to +VENTURE

It's a safe bet that Trick or Treating will be from 6-8 give or take 30 minutes pretty much everywhere. The reason it seemed too early this year is because Daylight Savings Time was changed a year or two ago. The clocks used to be set back before Halloween, making it dark at 6:00PM. If a town changed the night, the locals would know.
IMO I think it should just be moved to the last Saturday of the month every year.


I'm the only one in my loop but I still figured all this out on my own.

The "loop" is a term used by people on here who get offended easily. This is online forum for adults for Pete's sake - not middle school.
