    A lot of kids do it during the day now. It starts around 3:00 PM in my neighborhood and is just about over by 7:00. When I was a kid, part of the fun was going out in the dark and staying up late. :dontknow:

    Dude I dont know what to tell you...we would be out there around 3 or so, maybe stop for dinner and then go back out. I remember 9 being the town curfew but maybe that was just my mom. :jj:

    Elementary school-aged kids usually and pre-schoolers. I know, it sucks. I wasn't even ready the first few years we lived here.

    That's why I figured kids wait now until later so people are home...Im so old that when I was trick or treating moms were usually home at that time.

    When I was a kid, we didn't even think about leaving the house until 7:00... By 9:00 I could barely lift the pillowcase, cause it was so full ....

    i drove by a church last Saturday and they had trick or treat from 3pm-6pm in the parking lot.
    all the members park with their trunks to the car open and the kids walk by each one in costume and get their candy.

    I live by a big church and the church kids have their "anti-halloween" party for Christ, and then they come and trick or treat in droves on my street.

    I like to stick my penis in an 18 year old boy's anus and make rhythmic slapping sounds
