Re: When do you "End" trick or treating?

Well we only go to families homes and we were gone from around 5:30 until around 8ish.

Re: When do you "End" trick or treating?

Here ToTing is scheduled from 6-8. So at most we're out 2 hours. This year the kids were getting cold after about an hour so we headed home. Some years we last the whole hours and some times we last significantly less. We follow the kids lead on when we head home.

Re: When do you "End" trick or treating?

We let the kids decide. We take our wagon and when no one wants to get out any more or we finish the subdivision, we are done. DD has gotten done the last two years as we are finishing the second street, lol. She just wants to eat the candy even though she hasn't gotten much yet. Our 3 closest neighbors load them up though when we get back home, they are the only los in our neighborhood.

Re: When do you "End" trick or treating?

My 7 yr old went al 2 hes. My 18 month was more interested in pushing stroller so after about an hr she went home with my mom. It was kinda chilly although I think mymom was getting more tired & thinking she was going to be home with 18 month. My oldest first time was like 6 to 8 months & we went to specific houses (6 I think) before we called it a night but again it was cold too.... my mom started completely ending ours when I was kid was like 4 or 5th grade then I had to stay home to hand out candy.

I hope he wasn't actually letting her knock at the houses with lights off. That's really rude IMHO. Once we got home from an indoor event with our 2 yr old, he went to bed, and there were still trick or treaters out there. I would've been ticked if parents were letting their kids knock on the door and wake our DS up and keep getting the dogs riled up.

Some people still give out candy but don't turn on the light,etc our porch light is broken and we are not near any street lights but I still had candy to pass out. How is it any different than people having their light on but then not passing out candy or saying go away we don't celebrate Halloween?
DD is 7 she went with DH for about 1.5 hrs.

Our city has scheduled trick or treat and it's only an hour and a half for everyone, even big kids. I think 30-45 minutes for young kids is fine. That's about how long we had my DD out.

Must depend on the area. I grew up in this area, and now own a house in it, and around here it's common knowledge that if you are handing out candy, you turn on your light. It's been like that since I was a kid. I guess if your light doesn't work then you sit outside or put a sign up or something if you want ToT'ers.

I wasn't trying to be rude or argumentative, just saying that here and most places I've heard of, if the light is off, you don't let your kids go up and knock.

Re: When do you "End" trick or treating?

We went until the kids had had enough. My younger son was getting fussy (It was pretty cold.) and my older son was saying he wanted to go home. It was about an hour, maybe an hour and a half total for us. I wish we could have done the full three hours, but no one wants grumpy kids and there was no real need for more candy. Just want.
