We don't have many kids but they get driven to our neighborhood by the van full and dropped off and seem to never leave, so I'm not home anymore. I could go through 500 pieces of candy in an hour if I wanted to be there for all these non-local kids. I'm sure they are coming because their own neighborhoods aren't safe but as the mall is open to trick-or-treaters I wish they would go there instead and leave us to the neighborhood kids.

What I thought was cool this year was that the car show is in town, so they had last night as trunk-or-treat night. Anyone in a costume got in free and kids could trick-or-treat while Mom or Dad looked at the new cars.

I feel your pain. Our neighborhood swells by the hundreds on Halloween! We're also known as the place to go view Christmas lights. Our neighborhood association has assisted in curtailing the trick or treaters by reminding everyone to turn their lights on at 6pm and to turn them off promptly at 8pm. At 6pm there isn't a parking spot to be found, but at 8:10pm we're back to peace and quiet. The out-of-the-neighborhood kids (and parents) have learned they only have two hours... make the most of it.

The two-hour thing wouldn't be so bad. I got home at 9:30 last night and huge crowds of small children (like 4-8 years old) were still being ushered around, not to mention the increasing numbers of teens. That's my other pet peeve- how old should you be when you quit trick-or-treating?

Sounds like you need to lead a neighborhood revolt. How many houses? Even if you only got two or three blocks to do something similar to what we do, you would probably get the entire neighbor to figure it out... gets the neighbors to talk too. Print up some fliers (you can get a number on one piece of paper), cut them out and hand them out a week or so before Halloween.

I found my daughter WANTED to quit trick-or-treating after her 12th birthday. She and her friends only wanted to dress up and hang out. The parents have been taking turns hosting parties since then. It usually involves a movie and snacks. Nothing too tough. It's actually pretty easy when Halloween falls on a school night!

We live in a court. There are usually lots of visitors from outside the court but they all come later (likely do there own area first).
So I sat outside and played some music, gave away applesauce and fruit drinks(not punch) for a bit more than two hours. All the young kids in the court came by, mostly with their parents, they were fun. A few visitors also came. Then we made a batch of Margaritas and went to our friends to finish "treating".
It was a good night.

It's with great sadness that I share this report. Such a sad commentary on modern life, my prayers go out to this family.

I think I was irritated at the teens as well until someone said well I'd rather have them trick or treating than up to no good......as long as they are respectful, still I think the cut off should be around 12, but kids grow up SO fast, its fun to still see them being young.
